Cllr Barlow updated the Council that the consultation period ends on 6th December and assured members and the public that the plan will be reconstructed. She apologised to the steering group, old and new for all the issues regarding the wrong the plan being out for consultation.

The car park will be re-painted, and MDC will reconfigure the market to the top end to stop the issue with cars leaving through a no exit. MDC will also contact Notts County Council to re-paint the arrows on Clumber Street that show it’s a one-way street.
9910. STAFFING WORKING PARTY MEMBERS
The Chair asked for more members to join the Staffing Working Party.
RESOLVED: Cllrs J. Kerr, A. Wetton, L. Davis, D. Barlow and R. Butler will join Cllrs J. Cockroft and A. Burgin on the Staffing Working Party.
An update from Luke Spence, Carnival Chairman was read out.
Income was around £12,315 and we made around £12,100 so we are going to be in profit of around £200.
It was a bit of a shame as I thought we'd have done more but we did have extra costs this year which we wouldn't usually. The insurance alone was nearly £1000. I've not set a date for the AGM as of yet, but I think it will be mid-December. I'm hoping with everyone’s support to be chairman again for next year and I'd like an American theme for 2019 if this gets voted in by the committee. As always, we will be doing a Facebook appeal for new volunteers and committee members as it's the committee members who work hard to pull it off with the help of other local groups.
9912. BIG WARSOP
