Agenda item



To consider a proposal to undertake a Community Governance Review arising from a petition received from Orgreave Parish Council.


Further to Minute No. 17 of the meeting of Council held on 3rd June, 2015 consideration was given to the report which detailed the outcome of the request for a Community Governance Review to alter the boundary of the Parish Council to cover only the settlement of Orgreave and the creation of a new Parish Council to cover the remainder of the current area of Orgreave Parish Council, which would include the southern part of the Waverley settlement.  On agreeing the Community Governance Review and approval of the Terms of Reference a further report was to be submitted with the results of the consultation exercise.


A consultation exercise did take place, but no further report was submitted to Council.  This report sought to rectify that omission.  There had been significant development on the Waverley site since 2015 and this report outlined the various proposals which have emerged from recent discussions with Orgreave Parish Council, Catcliffe Parish Council, the Waverley Residents Association and Ward Members and made recommendations for the further progress of the Community Governance Review.


Members welcomed the opportunity for further consultation to address some of the concerns that have been raised from recent discussions.


Resolved:-  (1)  That the modified terms of reference set out at Appendix 4 of this report be agreed.


(2)  That further consultation take place as set out at Section 4of this report. 


(3)  That a further report on the outcome of the further consultation be submitted to the Council in due course.  


Mover:-   Councillor Alam                       Seconder:-  Councillor Read
