Notices of Motion

1.     PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR HILTON

 

“This council agrees that one of its key objectives should be to oversee the regeneration of vacant and derelict sites within the council's administrative area.

 

Council notes that it has a list of 36 regeneration sites on its 'regeneration hit list'.

 

Council calls on the cabinet member for regeneration to prepare a report to refresh the hit list.

 

The cabinet member should seek advice from councillors on which sites should be included in the new regeneration hit list.

 

Finally, council requests that the new regeneration hit list include a cabinet approved action plan for each site, which can be monitored using the traffic light system.”

 

2.     PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR HYMAN

 

This Council requests the Cabinet Member for the Environment to advise Members if its contractor is able to cope with all of its contractual responsibilities - these being general waste collection, green waste collection, recycling collection and cutting grass verges and overgrown vegetation.

 

The cabinet member is also requested to advise Council of any current failures in these contractual arrangements and what action is being taken to address them.

 

This Council requires that all waste collections and recycling are carried out at the scheduled times and instructs the Managing Director to ensure this is made clear to the contractor.”

 

3.     PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR FEARN

 

“This council resolves to protect the museum collection currently housed in Gloucester Life Museum. Whilst it is acknowledged that the building in Westgate Street is in urgent need of restoration, council agrees that the collection is also a vital aspect of Gloucester’s cultural offering and should be retained as a separate, distinct museum. 

 

Council acknowledges that Gloucester has a proud heritage, and agrees that the contributions of ordinary working people should continue to be celebrated through this collection.

 

4.     PROPOSED BY COUNCILLOR WILSON

 

“This council notes the decision of the publishers of the Gloucester Citizen newspaper to move it from a daily publication to a weekly publication.

 

This council thanks the journalists both past and present who have reported on the news and events in and around Gloucester over the decades.

 

This council records its best wishes to the editor and her staff in producing the new weekly edition of the Gloucester Citizen from the 12th of October.”
