NEWSBRIEF No 88 - 28th September 2021
CLOUD: 2020 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The 2021 CLOUD Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th October, starting at 7.30pm. To facilitate attendance from as many members as possible, the AGM will once again be held online. A link to join the Zoom meeting will be circulated before the meeting so that members can participate in the proceedings.
We encourage as many CLOUD members as possible to join the online AGM which has important decisions to make, including our ongoing campaign on housing developments in Lancaster. We will discuss what our next steps should be, following Lancaster City Council’s decision to approve the Housing Infrastructure Funding. We hope to agree a few key objectives to focus our activities on for the year ahead.
We will also elect the new Management Committee. A few of the present members of the committee have dedicated considerable time and energy to CLOUD over the last few years and are now wishing to stand back and take a less active role. We will therefore welcome all offers of assistance, whether on the committee or informally. Please consider if you are able to increase your involvement in CLOUD next year so that we can continue to build on our collective knowledge, expertise and resources and apply pressure on the council, planners and developers during what will be a very significant period for Lancaster's future.
