Local Improvement Schemes

The final list of proposed local improvement schemes will be discussed and decided.

Minutes:

A general discussion took place about the Provisional List of Local Improvement schemes 2011/2012 that were published in the Jan 2011 edition of Your Ward. A resident asked why the votes were not on the list.  The votes are not automatically put in but can be obtained from the Neighbourhood Management Unit, Kristina will email the resident with the votes, and we will look into do this for next time.
