To note the report.


Reasons for Recommendation(s):

1.    As a community leader our publicly accessible meeting rooms should meet the required standards and have the capacity to seat as many members of the public as possible.

2.    In line with the new green agenda within the Corporate Strategy the furniture is being refurbished rather than purchasing new furniture.

3.    The provision of the facilities to web cast meetings will enable all residents to observe the decision-making process.


Alternative Options Considered and Rejected:

Not to undertake the refurbishment.
