·         The Town Team had provided an update at the Board meeting.  Two business cases has been approved for submission to Cabinet, relating to the market and to an empty shop project.  Town centre wi-fi was progressing and the town centre visioning document had been agreed.  John Griffiths AM and Jessica Morden MP had been invited to visit Severnside on Friday 18th March by the Programme Board Chair.


·         The Accessible Transport theme group had now been established and was being led by Paul Turner Magor.  The Whole Place team had also provided support to the Severn Tunnel Action Group with progressing a questionnaire.


·         A written update on 21st Century Schools had been provided to the Programme Board meeting.
