PETITION RECEIVED BY THE COUNCIL FROM THE RESIDENTS OF BURNLEY CLOSE, SOUTH OXHEY



The Council has received two petitions: one from the residents of Burnley Close and the other from the residents of Gleneagles Close in South Oxhey, objecting to the Council’s proposals to install a new children’s play area at the ‘old Wenta site’ off Prestwick Road in Ashridge ward.



The petition from Burnley Close residents is signed by over 25 residents. Under Rule 19 of the Council’s constitution, “the Leader of the Council in consultation with Group Leaders shall determine which ordinary petitions shall be presented to a Committee or to Council”.  Therefore, Councillor Ann Shaw, Leader of the Council has agreed that the petition is presented to members of the Leisure and Community Safety Policy and Scrutiny Committee.

 

The petition from Gleneagles Close residents is signed by fewer than 25 residents, and therefore not subject to Rule 19.
