The Head of Leisure, Parks and Communities submitted a report (previously circulated now appended) which sought an increase of £2,500 to the 2015/2016 community and voluntary organisations (CVOs) grant programme.


Cllr Rowley, Board Member for Leisure Contract and Community Partnership Grants presented the report. He apologised to the Grants officer for the need for the second report.


Cllr Fooks queried why the proposed grant increase had not been mentioned in the previous minutes. The Chief Executive explained that the minutes were a comprehensive record not a verbatim record of the meeting.
