Additional documents:


Ellie Stevens, Community Resources Manager, introduced this report and, together with Keith Chant and John Atkinson made the following points:


·       Members’ attention was drawn to the 6 monthly progress update set out on the website

·       The Terms of Reference had been recently adjusted to confirm that this was  a formal meeting

·       Section E – CIL Funding – Following the receipt of additional CIL funding, there was now a total of approximately £59,300 for use, with £19,395 available for general tree planting and £18,982.92 available for time-limited use for a specific provision and maintenance scheme of off-site tree planting at Bonnington Walk, Lockleaze to be concluded by 14th October 2026

·       It was noted that schemes listed under 16,17 and 18 on Page 34 were incorrectly listed under Lockleaze and should be listed for Eastville

·       Officers would check to confirm whether or not one of the proposed trees in Stoke Park (identified on Page 35) could be replaced with a tree in Stanfield Close which had a greater need for additional trees and whether or not there was additional money to replace a fallen tree in Snowdon Road. He confirmed that checks would be required to ensure that all trees were viable for planting. ACTION: Jon Atkinson

AC323P37 – Friends of Royate Hill Local Nature Reserve – Installation of

AC323P127 – Friends of Hillfields Library – Hillfields Library Improvements - CIL Amount Requested TBC – Priority 5
