Kenilworth Community Forum - Action Points from 6 June 2011

The KENILWORTH COMMUNITY FORUM (6 June, 2011) Action points from the meeting have now been received - so here they are. Full text from the one page document reads:

The forum was attended by 51 people. Agenda item Discussion points and actions agreed Warwickshire Library and Information Service consultation –‘Facing the Challenge’. 1. Request made that the bus service and library reviews are joined up, to ensure the bus service operates at a time when the library is open.

2. Concerns raised about access to the other services now housed inside the
library building (Police front desk etc.). The assurance was given that even
if the proposed cut to hours takes place, access to the Police front desk will
still exceed the hours previously offered at the old station building.
Matters arising:
Castle Farm skate park
The lighting has now been installed, and the coin operation box is due to come
into use in the near future. Castle Farm half-pipe has been condemned – due
to be removed next week. Young people will be submitting a grant application
to the forum as part of their fundraising to replace it. They have already raised
£5,500. Cllr Blacklock mentioned the WDC Play Working Group, which is due
to meet, and to discuss the issue. (No forum action at this time.)
