Notices of Motion

1.       PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR HILTON AND TO BE SECONDED BY COUNCILLOR D. BROWN

 

“This Council notes that the adopted Gloucester Local Plan dates back to 1983, but that a number of planning policies were formally ‘saved’ by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in 2007.

This Council welcomes the work done so far by the three councils; Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury in developing the Joint Core Strategy (JCS) that is currently being considered by the Planning Inspector appointed by PINS, Ms Elizabeth Ord.

 

This Council notes that a new Gloucester City Plan (the City Plan) will be prepared as a development document that will sit beneath the JCS. It will explain how the Council will implement the spatial vision and strategic objectives in the JCS up to the year 2031 and provide criteria that it will apply when considering planning applications for different types of buildings or other development.

 

This Council notes that a new Council was elected on the 5th May for four year term and that all members must be fully involved in developing the new City Plan, which was originally due to go to the Planning Inspector in the winter of 2016 for adoption in 2017.

 

This Council, therefore, calls on the Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning to prepare a report for all Members, to be considered by full council on 29th September 2016, on how he intends deliver the new City Plan through to adoption during the life of this Council.”

 

2.       PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR HAIGH AND TO BE SECONDED BY COUNCILLOR COOLE

 

“The City of Gloucester has a long and proud history of taking in and accepting people from different countries and cultures. The City has benefitted from the diversity and different experiences and skills that have enriched our City.

 

We are proud to live in a diverse and tolerant society. Racism, xenophobia and hate crimes have no place in our country. We, Gloucester City Council, condemn racism, xenophobia and hate crimes unequivocally. We will not allow hate to become acceptable.

 

Gloucester City Council will work to ensure local bodies and programmes have support and resources needed to fight and prevent racism and xenophobia.

 

We reassure all people living in Gloucester that they are valued members of our community.”
