21. DISCLOSURE OF PECUNIARY AND OTHER INTERESTS

22. QUESTION TIME

To the Leader of the Council :

In view of the negative outcome of the Maltings lottery bid and the need to re-examine the options now available would the Leader of the Council agree that:-
1. A re-examination of Waverley’s position at this time would be premature. The failure of its lottery bid has not reduced the Maltings’ significance as an asset to the people of Waverley nor the urgent need for capital investment. The Council of the Maltings has indicated that it will put forward revised options for the refurbishment of the building and we should wait to see what they consist of before taking any further decisions. 2. The Council’s policy towards the Redgrave Theatre has been clearly identified as part of the East Street regeneration process. This has been bi-partisan policy established under the former Liberal Democrat administration and we have been happy to continue this. The New Farnham Repertory Company has been invited to submit a paper to the East Street SIG on the role of live theatre in the East Street Development Plan. The premises needs of many of Farnham’s community organisations have been considered already in reviewing issues relating to East Street, the Maltings and Church House. Any other issues can be dealt with as they arise. 3. Extensive public consultation has already taken place in relation to East Street and further consultation will take place once development options have been received. At present it would serve little purpose to conduct public consultation without giving people specific issues (including financial and planning implications) to consider. I do expect that we will move more rapidly and consider a report on the development brief for East Street regeneration area which will enable us to move forward as indicated.
