particularly the unauthorised use of motorcycles and the Town Clerk reported that the
Recreation Committee would be consulted upon the issue.

RESOLVED: That Sustrans be invited to address the Committee on the proposal at the
earliest opportunity.


22.        STRATEGIC PLANNING

The Committee was informed that the inaugural meeting of the Strategic Planning Working
Party would be held on 19th June which would be attended by the Director of Environment
and his Senior Planning Term Colleagues.

Members of the Working Party were invited to inform Councillor Bigby of topics to be
considered at the meeting which would assist the Town Clerk in compiling an agenda for the
meeting.
