Former councillor Lee Sutton is asking how far equality issues were taken into account and whether councillors had proper training to handle some aspects of the process.

His question is being put to members of the full council which meets tonight (Tuesday) at the town hall at 7pm.

He wants the council to explain how discrimination and equality of opportunity issues were taken into account particularly in regard to the indoor bowls and disabled access to the pool.

The council unveiled its vision for a new attraction on the site at the end of last year.

Tonight’s meeting will also look at a recommendation to increase fees for two-day market traders whose charges were halved last year in a bid to encourage new permanent stall-holders.

The political groups will also come to a decision over this year’s budget and a proposal to increase council tax by £5 a year for a Band D property.
