80.15 Cllr Palmer reported that the Area Committees were to be looked at more closely by Scrutiny Panel on 2nd December which is the deadline for a decision as to whether or not to keep them. Louth and Southern Area are not as well attended as Northern Area and the general feeling of our meeting was that the PC would like it to remain.
Birkbeck is now an Academy and the re-siting of the Youth Club is now an issue at North Somercotes. It is hoped it can somehow be incorporated into the Luke Walmsley Centre which currently supports the Football Club, although more was originally intended for it. Money will be available from ELDC and LCC.
Skegness was discussed at Council and the siting of the new Holiday Inn.
Cuts are expected to the Police, their time is being taken by domestic abuse incidents.
