Motions

(a)  Proposed by Councillor Guthrie

 

This Council recognises that since the nationwide restrictions have become more relaxed, car usage in Southampton as been on the increase.  As the City’s residents return to work, their children go back to school and the roads bear the weight of a larger number of vehicles, this Council understands that many motorists have found their journey time extended following the decision to install bus and cycle lanes on some of the main routes leading into the city centre as part of the Green Transport Recovery Plan.

 

This Council acknowledges that cleaner air cannot be achieved if traffic in the city is made to idle longer on the city’s main arterial routes than it was prior to the manifestation of the GTRP’s programme.

 

As a result, this Council pledges to halt the roll out of the GTRP, reconsider the implementation of its programme, and remove the schemes currently in place on the city’s roads whilst sufficient data is gathered on traffic levels within Southampton.  This will be used to assess the viability of the GTRP in its current form and determine it’s future role in improving the city’s air quality.

 

(b)  Proposed by Councillor Fitzhenry

 

This Council has lost confidence in the Cabinet Member for Green City and Place to make objective decisions on behalf of this city’s transport requirements.

 

Decisions are being made to the detriment of many of our residents and businesses within our city because of the ever increasing influence of a small minority over the cabinet member.

 

More now than ever, this city requires clear and strong political leadership to help us emerge from this crisis, not the pursuit of an ideological approach of “forcing people from their cars” by the cabinet member.

 

Therefore Council calls on the Leader of the Council to remove Cllr Leggett from his position immediately

7.

Questions from Members to the Chairs of Committees or the Mayor

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

 

 

8.

Appointments to Committees, Sub-Committees and Other Bodies

To deal with any appointments to Committees, Sub-Committees or other bodies as required.

To move that in accordance with the Council’s Constitution, specifically the Access to Information Procedure Rules contained within the Constitution, the press and public be excluded from the meeting in respect of any consideration of the exempt appendix to the following Item.

The appendix is considered to be exempt from general publication based on category 3, of paragraph 10.4 of the Council’s Access to Information Procedure Rules.
