Please find attached the Agenda for the Environment subgroup meeting on Thursday 3 November 2016 7.30pm to 9pm, the action notes from the previous meeting and a draft TOR(Terms of reference)

Please note this meeting is about ‘Air Quality’ and not S106/ CIL. We have the great pleasure of having very renowned people in the field of Air quality coming to our meeting to share in our discussion and give us a couple of presentations.

We will also be voting for a new chair, as we know Tess Green who has done a fantastic job chairing wishes to step down, we thank her for all her commitment to the group and will continue to benefit from her input as a participant. This will be the last meeting Tess is chairing for the environment subgroup, and it is looking like an extremely interesting one too well done Tess!

Donald Branch has offered to chair, for those who don’t know Donald, Donald has recently retired from being a director of a national charity, currently he is Chair of the Board of Trustees of a Pension Scheme and Chair of Caraboo Neighbourhood BS3. Donald is interested in how various elements of our environment combine to form good spaces for living.
