In 2015 some funding had been made available by the NHS England to improve existing primary care premises. Two schemes would be likely to be progressed in Oldham; one of this would be the Shaw and Crompton Hub.

 

At the last meeting of the Shaw and Crompton District Executive, Members were informed that Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group was in the process of appointing a consultant to undertake a business case for the project.

 

No further information was received since the last meeting.

 

A conversation took place on the current arrangements for signposting members of the public who applied for Universal Credit to other services and resources available in the borough.
Members were reminded of the “Where Can I Find It” leaflet which listed services such as Bulky Bob’s referrals and the opportunity for people in need to receive furniture for free or at very low prices.

 

RESOLVED that:

2.    “Where Can I Find It” leaflet be re-printed and circulated.

Wildflower and Poppy Meadow Petition report to note

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report of the Shaw and Crompton District Coordinator on the Wildflower and Poppy Meadow Petition report. Members were informed that the Petition Panel had met on 12th November 2018 to discuss the issue raised by some residents and to look at possible solutions. Following this meeting, a discussion had taken place with the Lead Petitioner. So far, it appeared that the best solution would be to form a Friends Group who would look after the meadow.

 

An update was also provided by the Shaw and Crompton District Coordinator on Petition Ref. 2018-15; this petition requested the removal of the gates near the garage site on Shaw Road. The Community Safety Officer had met with the contractors and the costing to set the gates back from the main road had been received. The proposal was out for consultation; this would end on 12th December 2018. A further update would be provided at the next meeting of the District Executive.

 

RESOLVED that the update be noted.
