  • Stonepit Land Leases: Concerns were raised by members of the Youth Club about the delay and lack of consultation in issuing new leases for the Stonepit land, with the council acknowledging the legal process has slowed things down.
  • Village Shop Initiative: Feedback from a community meeting highlighted some interest in pursuing a community-run shop, with the council acting in a facilitative role rather than managing the project directly.
  • Defibrillator Updates: Updates on the installation of defibrillators in Little Oakley and Newton were provided, along with plans to establish a community support chain for emergency response.
