Cabinet to decide on the future of Thrift Farm
Following a robust consultation, which included a call for business plans to provide a service at Thrift Farm, the Council's Cabinet will be considering the future of Thrift Farm on Monday 9 September 2019.
Lin Hazell, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: "Now that officers have reviewed all viable plans for services to continue at Thrift Farm, we are very close to deciding on its future. This has been an unsettling time for service users at the farm. I would like to commend them for their dignity and patience throughout - and very much hope we can give them a future they deserve.
"We had an overwhelming and, in the main, positive response to the consultation. I would like to thank everyone who took part. Their views are important to us and will be carefully considered as part of the decision making process."
Whatever decision is taken by the Cabinet a 'call in' period has to elapse before the decision can be implemented. The 'call in' period for decisions taken on 9 September 2019 - after which the Council will issue a full statement.
