Yours sincerely,

Lindsey Wood,

The Chairman will convene the Town Council meeting after the public session (please note that members of the public are no longer permitted to speak unless invited to do so by the Chairman).
2. To receive apologies for absence

Members are invited to declare disclosable pecuniary interests and other interests in items on the agenda as required by the Mere Town Council Code of Conduct for Members and by the Localism Act 2011.

4.  Car Parks & Public Toilets
The lease between the Town Council and Wiltshire Council for the two public car parks and public toilets expires in April 2018.  To enable the Town Council to consider budget implications, benefits to the community and costs to the ratepayers we need to discuss the following:

Public Toilet Options:

  1. Request Asset Transfer
  2. Renewal of Lease
  3. Return to Wiltshire Council for closure

If a) or b), what level of refurbishment do we want to carry out and do we want to charge for use and do we want to keep them open 24 hours?

Car Park Options

  1. Request Asset Transfer
  2. Renewal of Lease
  3. Return to Wiltshire Council (implications unknown)

If a) or b), does the Town Council wish to impose time restrictions on parking or a low parking charge or request continued sponsorship from business or do we simply subsidise free car parking?
