30.1    Councillor Steve Morgan presented a petition, consisting of 141 signatures, calling for the Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning to encourage Gloucestershire County Council and Bovis Homes Group Plc to adopt the Copeland Park area in order to facilitate a much needed play area within the site. He reported that a consultation document had been prepared and would be delivered to local residents on the 30September 2016 to clarify residents’ expectations of the play area and put the project in an excellent position to move forward quickly.


30.2    Councillor Organ thanked Councillor Morgan from the submission of the petition, acknowledging the issues arising from delays in adopting areas of land. He advised that representation had already been made to Gloucestershire County Council regarding this issue. He stated that whilst he was unsure of the nature of the technical difficulties, he would undertake to make further representation to Gloucestershire County Council to understand the timeline of delay.
