Strategy Committee - 16 January

A few points:

Item 6 - Social Services Performance
I welcome the improvement in what has been the boroughs worst service. Over the last 4 years we have seen a significant improvement.

Item 8 - Belsize Gardens
This is a confidential item. It will be interesting to see that the management arrangements are and whether the coventant issues have been sorted out.

Item 9 - Equality and Diverstiy Forum
In view of the national changes a local change to a single forum was inevitable.

Item 10 - Rent Reveiw
This is likely to be straightforward with national rent capping. Of more interest will be what commitments the Coucil will set for the ALMO this year.

Item 11 - Roundshaw Stoack Transfer
In view of the ballot result, this item should be a formality.

Item 14 - Wallington County Grammar School
This item may be agreed, but do the school have planning permission for what may be a development in the Green Belt?

Item 17 - Kimpton Site sales
I hoep the Council gets a good deal, despite past difficulties. However it is also vital to complete the redvelopment of the site so as to improve the local public realm and keep Mr Hilldrup happy.

WCGS has a sports hall on the school site. I think this is the one that is being replaced rather than a new one on the Clockhouse site in the greenbelt (though I stand to be corrected.)

Very helpful. I think that will be much less controversial than the earlier proposal for a new build on the green belt part of their site and as the report shows they are the school that has the greatest need for a new facility.
