How do you think the planning service is doing?

likedislike
East Lothian Council’s planning service is consulting users to see how it performs. They want to understand your views on the “service” itself, rather than whether you agree with specific planning proposals or decisions. They say they will use the information you provide to identify areas for improvement. There are only a handful of questions, so if you have had any contacts with planning nows your chance to feedback.

1.Apologies:            R. Gurr; I. Knox;  S. Turnbull

2.Presentations:

Celebrate Fund:  Kate thanked the C.C. for the opportunity to outline the details of the Fund.  It had become evident that there was a serious lack of sports coaches throughout the country.  The aim was to bring together schools, sports clubs etc. to train youngsters as coaches and hopefully provide a legacy for communities.  Approaches had already been made to local organisations but the Joint Application would require to be made  by a “neutral”  body and Kate would like the C.C. to agree to act in this capacity.   The Community Council had already agreed that Isabel Knox would act as a representative on a working group on its behalf.  The C.C.  also agreed, in principle, to the request provided the draft application was submitted for their approval.  It was suggested that other local Community Councils within the cluster area of Dunbar Grammar School should  be approached and Kate agreed to take this on board.   The Chair thanked her for her input.
