Consideration was given to the report of the Local Area Manager (Agenda Item 6) that contained recommendations for expenditure from the Committee’s developer contributions.

 

Councillor Cross requested that the tree maintenance budget be looked at again next year, with regards to increasing it further.

 

The Local Area Manager agreed to look and see if it would be possible.

 

The Local Area Manager informed the Committee that the Corporate Director for Assets had agreed prior to the LAC meeting, that the cost of the boiler mentioned would come from the budget of the assets team, and not from the budgets of the Bursledon, Hamble-le-Rice and Hound Local Area Committee, therefore Item 7 of the report was withdrawn.
