Motions

(a)  Councillor Mintoff to move:-

 

In light of the Grenfell Tower Fire, this Council agrees to write to the Local Government Association and the Police & Fire Minister asking that Planning Law is changed to make it obligatory for Planning Departments and developers to consult the Fire Service on all Planning Applications which relate to purpose-built student accommodation, schools, hotels, high rise office blocks, high rise housing, large development sites and NHS buildings.  In the meantime Southampton City Council immediately operates the voluntary process offered by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service to look at the above-mentioned planning applications.

 

(b)  Councillor Moulton to move:-

 

Council recognises that many residents across Southampton have been adversely impacted by cuts to the weekly bin collection; with instances of overflowing bins, a proliferation of flies and maggots, and unpleasant smells.

 

Council calls on the Executive to reconsider its approach to bin collections, to consult widely with residents about the impact of the changes and to consider reinstating a weekly service where it is appropriate. Furthermore Council calls on the Executive to ensure that council operatives collect side waste from properties rather than leaving it behind. Finally Council calls on the Executive to review its approach to issuing bigger bins so that residents who want and need a larger bin can have one.

To consider any question of which notice has been given under Council Procedure Rule 11.2.
