5. Proposed alternative to act as SBNF Accountable Body

JM stated he had been in discussion with Locality regarding possible alternatives to Adur Council being SBNF’s accountable body.

The application is ready to submit, if approved by the committee.


DC proposed a motion to form such a company, JM seconded this motion and the motion was carried by 5 votes with none against.
