-An updated [[:​documents:​start|Agenda]] now published ​on website.+Further to the decision by Longleat to close the show caves and suspend their operations in Cheddar, they have notified CSCC that with immediate effect caver access to all caves on Longleat property which includes the whole south side of the Gorge, is no longer available. This includes all caves and digs, and affects sites such as Reservoir Hole, Spider Hole, Goughs Cave, Long Hole, Great Oones etc.
-This has been updated ​to include ​an election statement from Ed Waters, a BCA council report and CSCC proposals ​to BCA AGM, deferred from the last meeting.+Longleat are not adverse to reinstating caver access subject ​to an access agreement with CSCC. Negotiations ​to formalise an access procedure were started at the request of Longleat a few years ago but were never concluded.
-The meeting will be addressing the constitution changes which were deferred at a number ​of previous AGM/​EGM'​s. This updated constitution includes ​large number of changesfrom the existing one. To speed up the meeting, please carefully read both Constitutions before ​the meeting.+Discussions have recommenced and both parties are hopeful ​of a favourable and positive outcomehowever in the meantime all the caves are closed.
 +Longleat will be keeping a presence in the Gorge for maintenance purposes, but this is all. Approaches should not be made to Longleat or any of their representatives as permission to visit any of the caves will be denied.
