Forest of Dean Labour Party motion on Cannop ponds
On October the 5th The FODDC received a briefing from Forestry England representative Mr Kevin Stannard about the possible future of, and the issues they are facing in regard to, Cannop Ponds. I am grateful to the Council Leadership for arranging the briefing and to Mr Stannard for attending.
Having now had the aforementioned briefing by Forestry England and listened to the views of ward members Council resolves to:
a) take the position that all efforts should be made by FE to retain the Cannop Ponds in their current state and that the reservoirs dams are repaired to the standard required to maintain and ensure their safety.
b) instructs the Leader of the Council to make known to Forestry England the Council’s position as part of the official stakeholder consultation being conducted by Forestry England
