17NOTICE OF MOTION

Community Halls

A number of members have received a recent briefing note which has been issued by Children's Services on the community transfer of 5 community halls - Bothkennar, Banknock, California, Limerigg and Polmont.

There has been no consultation on the rationale behind these 5 halls being earmarked for potential transfer or closure. Councillors have also not been provided with the assessment undertaken on all 22 community halls in Falkirk. This is at a time when the council has committed itself to spending 20 Million on a new council HQ.

Members therefore request a report come to the December meeting of Full Council providing a detailed assessment of all 22 community halls and the potential impact to local communities resulting from closure.

Proposed by Councillor S Carleschi
