This was one of our quicker meetings, with a few deferrals and a run of reports moving things along quickly.
There was a reasonably large crowd tonight with more than 30 people in the audience. We also had two apologies with Cr Paul Farrow and Cr Eva Campbell not being present tonight.
Before the meeting started the mayor requested a minute's silence for the victims of the Manchester bombing.
Cr Michael Morrison also declared an insignificant non-pecuniary interest in the first item as he had a friendship with somebody who lived close to the proposed chicken farm.
We had five public speakers tonight, so let's start things and see what they had to say.
