Background Information: The Council and Cambridge University (CU) are in agreement that the current Trust model providing the governance structure for Storey's Field Centre is unwieldy, and there is potential for efficiencies in decision making and operations with a revised governance arrangement. The Council entered a contract for services with SFCT in June 2016 and employs the staff who operate the centre. Extension of the Council's contract for services until the end of March 2025 will enable smooth transition from SFCT to a new governance arrangement.
