Petition update 2 from the council, 13 July 2011

Petition update from June Borough Council meeting.

The Mayor introduced the petition for consideration and invited Councillor PritamGrewal, the Cabinet Member for Leisure and Well-Being, to speak to it.In doing so, Councillor Grewal advised Members that he had taken the decision not to replace bridge over the Crane River in the golf course: there was no designated right of way across the course.

However, he advised that there were some objections to the removal of the bridge and the Council would have to see whether there was likely to be a future requirement for it to be re-instated.

In response to a comment from Councillor Paul Jabbal, the Mayor noted that the petition related to Hounslow Heath ward rather than Hanworth as stated in the agenda report.

The Mayor then put the matter to the vote and it was RESOLVED –That the recommendation by Councillor Grewal that the bridge over the River Crane be not reinstated be agreed.
