Chair's Announcements

Minutes:

Since the last meeting, the Coronavirus crisis had affected everyone. From the limited evidence that he had been able to glean it suggested that Bisoptoke, Fairoak and Horton Heath had not been particularly badly affected in terms of illness and death; so far. However a large number of residents have endured a torrid time. Many still had to shield, had lost their jobs and income and didn’t qualify for any of the government support schemes. Local needs had increased enormously. Happily, there had been a huge response, particularly from the public,

 

As this was a meeting of a committee of the Council, the Chair was keen to mention the huge effort of its staff who had manged to keep essential services going whilst changing the way in which they worked and covering a large number of absences due to sickness and isolation. This seemed to be the new normal. The response of everyone from bin crews to shop staff had been amazing.

 

Most amazing of all had been the response of the public many of whom have volunteered to help in every way they could. This had been coordinated locally through Eastleigh Community Aid which was a voluntary organisation who matched volunteers with people needing help. He wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who had volunteered and particularly Councillors Parker-Jones and Tidridge who have done a lot of work setting up and running Eastleigh Community Aid.

Financial Monitoring Report pdf icon PDF 91 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report by the Local Area Manager (Agenda item 7) setting out a recommendation for expenditure from the Committee’s developer contributions.  The Chair was keen to point out that though the Chair of Horton Heath and Fairoak Parish Council was married to the Chair of the Squash Club she had been in no way involved in this application.

 

The Committee noted the absence of a Climate Change paragraph in the report and requested that an additional recommendation be added to ensure that the squash club pay mind to Climate Change implications, particularly during the construction phase.  This was voted on and passed unanimously.

 

RESOLVED –

 

(1)  That £50,000 is allocated to Fair Oak Squash Club to contribute to the phase 2 development of the clubhouse, inclusive of improved changing rooms and extended social areas, on receipt of a community development plan from the club; and

 

(2)  That the Fair Oak Squash Club pay mind to the Climate Change implications of these improvements, particularly during the construction phase, and do all that they can to mitigate them.
