TOWN council: At the meeting on December 14, seven planning applications discussed, five were approved and two were refused.

It was approved that the rose bushes should be removed from around the war memorial and the area seeded and grassed up to the paving stones. This action has been agreed by the Royal British Legion.

The town clerk is to contact the district council to investigate whether the application for the erection of railings around the war memorial can be cancelled and amended to carrying out improvements to the paved area.

It was approved that a donation of £500 be given towards the running costs of Ramsey in Bloom.

The recommendation that no donation is given to Huntingdonshire Citizens Advice Bureau was approved, and approval was also given for a 3 per cent increase in the salary for the town clerk's assistant.

It was noted that the low level fencing around the play area in Ashbeach Drove had been altered so that the openings were no longer opposite the gates to the play area.
