Decision:

Resolved –

 

Council notes that there has been a pre-existing date in the diary this month for Officers to meet the company promoting BT InLinks after an initial approach to the Leader’s Office.

 

Council recognises the innovative technology of BT InLinks and potential benefits to our residents and visitors but believes it should not commit to a pilot in advance of the meeting in mid-March, as it would be premature to do so. Council needs to undertake the financial due diligence necessary in advance of agreeing any such proposals.

 

Council will, however, commit to fully investigate the feasibility of deploying BT InLinks or a similar product at locations across the borough, which could help deliver the priorities of our digital strategy.

Minutes:

In moving the motion Councillor Spencer Drury said he would concede the amendment.

 

The motion was seconded by Councillor Charlie Davis.

 

Councillor Denise Hyland moved the amendment, noting they needed to examine the benefits and see if it could benefit all areas of the borough, and to see if there were any financial costs to the Council.

 

The amendment was seconded by Councillor Aidan Smith.

 

Councillor Spencer Drury accepted the amendment. He clarified the focus had been on Eltham because they were on the point of putting in old-style phone booths there.

 

The amended motion was put to the vote and it was unanimously
