The Minutes were agreed.
Proposed: Pauline Adenwalla Seconded: Cllr Lisa Rajan Carried: Unanimous
Slides and notes were circulated and further copies of the report are available if required.
The Chair proposed a vote of thanks to Jackie Rose for the positive way in which the CWCF
activity had been developed during the period under review. This was adopted unanimously.
DB asked that the chair's report be adopted.
Proposed: David Brunskill Seconded: Cllr Jeff Hook Carried: Unanimous
CJH advised that it was hoped that administration support for the Forum could continue. Although he felt many Forum issues would feed into the local community council CJH was keen that the hopes and aspirations of those living in the ‘hinterland' were also heard. It was agreed that the Terms of Reference should not be set in stone and needed to be reviewed in conjunction with the future role of the Rotherhithe Community Forum and it's structure.
It was agreed that a working party be formed to look at the question of future representation and structure. This group will comprise of:
British Land *
Canada Water Campaign
Conrad Phoenix (Richard Olsen or alternate)
Cllir Lisa Rajan
(the preferred master developer once formally appointed)
Advice will also be sought from the Mayor, Cllr Columba Blango as regards obtaining better representation from ethnic minorities.
Proposed: David Brunskill Seconded: Cllr Lisa Rajan Carried : Unanimous
No others wished to stand and both incumbents agreed to seek re-election:
Chair: David Brunskill Vice-Chair: Cllr Lisa Rajan Unopposed
DB had advised earlier that the Terms of Reference and structure had been drawn up in the early days of the Forum and several aspects now required alternation and amendment. Action was being taken – see minute 4 above. Accordingly it was not appropriate to change the terms of reference at this stage but the role of council leaseholder representative should continue on a co-opted basis. Theresa Cain was duly elected and accepted the post.
Proposed : David Brunskill Seconded: Cllr Lisa Rajan Carried: Unanimous
See minute 4 above
Inappropriate to plan pending formal appointment of a master developer.
CLH proposed a vote of thanks for the work undertaken by the Chair.
