9955. WARSOP PARISH COUNCIL
- J.Cockroft (Chair) read out correspondence sent to the Parish Council, a thank you letter sent from Oaklands for the section 137 donation that they had received.
- Cllr Butler urged people to have a look at the coal authority as it can provide a lot of information regarding fracking in our area.
Cllr Kerr said that he would support any apposing letters sent.
- Cllr Kerr spoke about the late-night opening trial that has been happening at the town hall for the last 2 weeks, he told the council that there has been no members of public attend and he proposed that this trial ends as the cost of keeping the building open and the Clerk not being available during the day is not beneficial to the people of the parish. Cllr Davies seconded this proposal, Cllr Butler objected to this as he feels that more time should be given to the trial, Cllr Simpson said that he agrees with Cllr Kerr, as he saw the town hall empty during the last late opening and feels that the public have access to all councillors at any time via the contact details of each councillor in the Warsop news and Parish Council website. Cllr Cockroft agreed with ending the trial however feels that it would be short notice to cancel this week. Cllr Davies suggested that if this week’s late opening was to go ahead it should close at 6pm not 7pm.
RESOLVED: 2 votes were taken
1.) End the trial after this week’s open night – Cllr Butler was out voted 6 votes to 1.
2.) Close the last session at 6pm instead of 7pm – Cllr Butler was out voted 6 votes to 1.
The Chair said that the Clerk had received a call from Luke Spence (chair of Carnival) saying that the chad had released an article saying that the Carnival needed more volunteers and funding, he wanted to assure the Council that he is very grateful for the donation that the carnival usually receives however he does have to seek funding from other options also hence the Chad report.
