He explained that the development at Severalls was ongoing and any reports would be included in the minutes.

Cllr Hewitt asked if there would be a final look at the Tubswick development and the Chairman said if the committee felt there needed to be another visit he would arrange it however the site was completed and occupied now and at the last visit he and Cllr Gray had paid to the site they had both been satisfied that everything was in order and that it was a good development.
