Attended the Barham Park Call in last night, answering questions on behalf of the committee. The first surprise was that Cllr Paul Lorber did not show up. Perhaps he has finally realised that being the bidder to rent a building owned by the Council and a Councillor involves a conflict of interest. Or perhaps he feels that he has delighted the rest of us with his presence enough already recently. Either explanation is pure speculation on my part.
We had a lengthy discussion, largely about procurement issues. I think the main point to grasp is that the governance of Barham Park has been greatly improved by the new committee arrangement; Barham Park now has a clear way forward; as a result of the way forward, Barham Park is getting about £600k spent to improve it.
