The Committee were advised that a quote for Public Liability insurance on the land was still being determined and would be shared with the Committee when available, where the Committee will discuss how to finance the insurance.
The Committee were presented with a proposal from the Dosthill Woman’s Institute to plant and maintain a community orchard in the Broom, Dosthill. The Committee were informed of the species of trees and the location they would be planted.
The Committee noted that there is currently no Public Liability insurance on this land, however having received the proposal from Dosthill Woman’s Institute, the Committee came to the view that it is acceptable for the orchard to be planted.
The Committee were reminded that at the Charities and Trusts Committee meeting held on 26 October 2018 the Committee approved the following recommendation:
· That the Committee approve a temporary license of access at Dosthill Playing Field and Recreation Ground to facilitate building works at the school
· That delegated authority be given to the Head of Property to agree the terms of the license referred to above
The Committee were presented with more detailed proposals relating to the planning application at the school and the temporary access proposed through the Broom. The Committee also considered presentations on behalf of local residents. The Committee discussed that they have already approved the principle of a temporary licence of access at Dosthill Playing Field and Recreation Ground acting as landowner, however the decision to deem the proposal for the overall access arrangements acceptable was part of the wider school development scheme proposals and therefore a matter for the Planning Committee at Tamworth Borough Council.
The Committee requested that officers agree the terms of the licence should the school development scheme obtain planning consent and therefore require it.
RESOLVED – That (a) a quote for Public Liability Insurance on the land be obtained.
(b) the Committee approves the proposal from Dosthill Woman’s Institution to plant an Orchard on the Broom
(c) the Committee approve a temporary license of access at Dosthill Playing Field and Recreation Ground to facilitate building works at the school, subject to Tamworth Borough Councils’ Planning Committee’s approval.
(d) delegated authority be given to the Head of Commercial and Assets to agree the terms of the licence referred to in (c) above.
