Moving forward with open spaces and getting active!

Frome Town Council met at Rook Lane Chapel on 25 November with a very-meaty agenda. Cllrs praised MDC which had agreed earlier in the week to transfer to FTC open spaces at Packsaddle. Click here for more details.

Council was also pleased to hear that Frontier Estate’s application to build on land at Saxonvale had been withdrawn. “Plan B” for Saxonvale will now begin in earnest.

Still on planning, Council decided to appeal against Mendip’s decision to refuse the application to improve the area around the Boyle Cross in Market Place. FTC agreed to press ahead with plans to install a scheme which will make it easier for pedestrians to cross the dangerous road in safety.

This week it was announced that the Government has re-invigorated its efforts to get the nation more active. It published its strategy on sports in a bid to create a nation better engaged with sports, and to deliver on the Olympic lasting legacy.

By chance, FTC also agreed recommendations from the Sports and Leisure panel which focused on increasing the number of adults and young people engaged in sport in Frome, particularly girls. FTC will also be looking to take a lead role in improving sports facilities in the town.

Last but not least, Council agreed an ambitious strategy for the next four years which can be viewed here.

The agenda and reports for last night’s meeting are here and the draft minutes will be posted online over the coming week. Thanks to everyone who came along and contributed to the meeting!
