    Thank you that is very informative.

    Could you please advise exactly what work has been scheduled by the Council?
    and exactly what work the tenant will be responsible for?
    Does this work include the upgrade of the Public Toilets in the bandstand?
    Exactly when will the work commence?

    Thank you
