Update on cell mast application objections – more input was being obtained. Attended to dispute re enclosing of public open space Erf 2145, Seascape Rd – meeting set up with Don Kirkwood and the City. Leeway was granted to make small (obvious) decisions re planning without bringing all to EXCO unnecessarily. Liaison with NEAG to take place where planning has an environmental impact. Still need maps to mark where there is Council land in Noordhoek.
Newsletter sent out – collaborating with 2030 projects Recruited new sub-committee member.
Decisions – A positive focus to be projected in all that we communicate to counter the growing negativity of our broader context. – If unable to attend an Exco meeting send a portfolio update/report to Exco. – Time to be set aside in each meeting for longer term strategic conversation.
