Cllr Dr N J Lee and Cllr J H B Edwards explained the four members’ concerns. There was concern about various issues including:

the perceived inequality in the budget for the Museum provision across the Borough about which a number of written representations had been received;
the possibility of any further future funding requests;
how to cover any on-going costs;
perception of high staffing costs and unrealistic spending plans; and
reference to LEA contribution.

RESOLVED: The Vice Chairman then moved that the Committee endorse the Executive’s decision, which was agreed 11 votes in favour, and none against.

The meeting concluded at 8.12 pm
