Motions

The following motions have been received in accordance with Procedure Rule 16:

 

1.     The following motion has been received from Councillor Brian Williams and supported by Councillors Cecilia Motley, David Turner, Michael Wood and Roy Aldcroft:

 

This Council recalls that, for many years, its Arboriculture Section ran a free tree scheme which was very popular among Shropshire residents.  Unwanted surplus whips from tree nurseries in the area were obtained and distributed to residents on a “first come, first served” basis.  However last year the scheme did not run since, though the trees were available, it was decided there was a “shortage of staff resources”.

 

This Council requests the Chief Executive to ensure that, as a service to residents and as evidence of its determination to assist in carbon reduction, the free tree scheme be re-instated and widely publicised in 2020

 

2.       The following motion has been received from Councillor Roger Evans and supported by the Liberal Democrat Group:

 

Council notes that during the whole of 2019 Councillors have been raising issues about the growing number of potholes and the general failure of Shropshire Highways and its contractors Kier and WSP to deal with these issues.

 

When a department fails it used to be the norm that the political person answerable for that department resigns.

 

Despite many assurances, many from Cllr Davenport himself, the Council has felt the need to appoint a consultant to tell them what was going wrong

 

We ask the Council to support our call for the resignation of Councillor Steve Davenport from the post of Cabinet Member responsible for Highways.
