Meeting: 30/06/2021 - Environment and Sustainability Committee (Item 201)

Community Orchards

To receive a verbal report on Community Orchards.


Sandy Muirhead, Group Head of Commissioning and Transformation provided a verbal report advising the Committee that there may be several proposals coming from areas within the borough for projects such as community gardens and it would be necessary to find a mechanism for assessing these to ensure a fair and equitable process.


The Committee agreed it was important that a procedure was set up to ensure community bids were considered in a fair and transparent manner. 


The Committee resolved to note the report and include the issue for consideration in the forward plan.
