What’s up for Discussion at the Vale Council this Week?

Just a couple of public meetings this week at the Vale of Glamorgan Council. Cabinet meets on Monday at 2pm and the Planning Committee is held on Thursday at 6pm. Both are held in the Civic Offices in Barry if you’d like to attend.

On Monday this week the Council’s Cabinet will cover a wide range of topics. They will be discussing the Council’s performance against the Corporate Plan, Strategic Collaborations with other organisations and grants to Community and Voluntary Organisations. There is an update report on the Town Centres Framework, the strategy that guides the support and activities for Town Centres in the Vale, two reports related to Llantwit Major the first about the now vacant Eagleswell School site and the second about the future of the Western Vale Integrated Children’s Centre and the Llantwit Major Youth Centre. There are also proposals to establish a nursery unit at Fairfield Primary School Penarth and to cancel the planned school progress panel for High Street Primary. Cabinet will also discuss the outcome of the recent judicial review of the Council’s plans to establish a community library in Rhoose.

A report on Car Parking in the Vale shows that the number of penalty charges have declined every year since they were introduced and recommends that proposals for charges in Town Centre Car Parks are dropped.

Finally there is a report on the Council’s duties as a landlord and a progress update on the Flood Alleviation Scheme at Boverton.

The other big meeting of the week is the Planning Committee which promises to be lively. The contentious Sully Sports Club application is recommended for refusal but is still sure to promote much debate. A number of other sites across the Vale will also be discussed. The planning committee can be watched live via webcast or a recording can be watched later.

Other information on what’s happening around the Vale can be found on the Council’s news updates or on the Enjoying the Vale pages
