1 .We're very grateful that the Committee has agreed that a representative for the Students' Union can present students' suggestions about the design for the proposed new Union building.
2 .We appreciate that some of our ideas may not be feasible in the circumstances.
3 .But we do feel that it is important that the ultimate beneficiaries of the facilities should have some say in its design.
1 .If I could start by briefly explaining what steps were taken to find out student opinion, and how we have arrived at conclusions.
2 .Firstly, a meeting was held in the current Union for our SU Committee to explain the options.
3 .Then we invited all students to submit written suggestions for the design, placing cards in a suggestion box.
1 .These suggestions then provided the basis for the design of a questionnaire, which was completed by approximately two thousand of the College students over a period of three weeks.
2 .Finally, the SU Committee collated the results and drew up a report.
3 .If I can just hand around a copy of that report.
4 .This presentation is essentially a summary and discussion of the key points of this report.
1 .So, in broad terms, the consensus was as follows.
2 .Firstly, regarding the crucial matter of the site, we presented the three options that you have proposed.
3 .One: in the city centre, near the Faculty of Education; two: on the outskirts of the city, near the park , and three: out of town, near the halls of residence.
4 .We asked students to cite reasons for and against these sites, and .... and there was remarkable agreement on all three.
5 .Site One was unpopular because of traffic and parking problems.
6 .Site Two had a number of supporters, mainly because it was close to most lecture rooms.
7 .And Site Three, out of town, near the halls of residence, was clearly the most popular because of access from living quarters.
8 .It was clear that the Union was mainly to be used after lectures.
9 .It was also felt the larger site would allow more room for a choice of facilities.
1 .Our second area of interest was obviously the facilities.
2 .There was minimal interest in having a library on the premises.
3 .But one option seemed to be a reading room instead, more useful.
4 .We would like the current table games room to be replaced with a small gym and if possible, small swimming pool, not, of course, Olympic size.
5 .There was a large number of respondents in favour of a travel agent's and insurance centre.
6 .We also request that there be the offices of the Student Counselling Centre, moving this from the Refectory.
7 .There was however much disagreement about whether to build a drama theatre.
8 .Just over forty percent of the respondents were in favour, but largish minority were strongly against it, claiming that it is elitist and a waste of funds.
9 .Essentially the jury is out on that.
1 .Finally, given a number of unfortunate incidents in the current Union over the past few months, a strong point was repeatedly made about security.
2 .The recommendations would be at least video surveillance and security personnel who would check Student Union cards on request.
3 .We doubt if it would be feasible to have a check reception of all people coming in.
1 .Well, this is the summary of the views of student population.
2 .As I say, further details are given in our report but I'm happy to take any questions if you have them.
