Minutes:

Councillor Mrs Wilson informed the Committee that the last paragraph of minute 132, before the recommendation was worded ambiguously.  Further to this the word descent had been spelled incorrectly.  It was suggested that the following sentence, ‘Councillor Mrs Wilson asked that her decent be noted, stating that she could not vote until the views of her residents were known’ be reworded to read, ‘Councillor Mrs Wilson asked that her descent be noted, stating that she could not vote in favour until the views of her residents were known.’

 

In addition a small number of typographical errors were highlighted.

 

RESOLVED: that

 

1.  The last paragraph of minute 132 be amended to read ‘Councillor Mrs Wilson asked that her descent be noted, stating that she could not vote in favour until the views of her residents were known.’

2.  The typographical errors highlighted be amended.
