C11/12.99.1

That following a request from the Sedlescombe Playing Field and Recreation Ground Rust and, as the Playing Field is for the benefit of the parish of Sedlescombe, the Council is willing to undertake the entire care, management and control of the Playing Field pursuant to s9(b) of the Open Spaces Act 1906 because the Trust has limited funds.

That the Council approves the draft memorandum of Agreement with the Sedlescombe Playing Field & Recreation Ground Trust as drafted apart from para 2.6 which should be amended to read "All expenses incurred by the Council in the care, management and control of the Field will be paid by the Council" with the remainder of the sentence as drafted by the Solicitor deleted.

C11/12.99.2 That the Parish Council supports the Charity's proposal to upgrade the tennis courts to a multi-use games area for low to medium use of tennis, netball and football and the Council will, if required, obtain a loan to cover the Charity's shortfall in funding of this project. It should be noted that the cost of the upgrade should be kept to a reasonable level and, if possible, existing materials such as fence posts, reused.
C11/12.100.1 That, because of the unacceptable additional burden that the devolvement of maintaining the car park and public conveniences in Brede Lane would bring to the Parish Council, Sedlescombe Parish Council should write to Rother DC refusing its offer of devolving these facilities to the Parish Council.

C11/12.100.3 That the December 2011 cheque list is ratified and the January 2012 cheque list approved.
