Motions

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

 

Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Julian Dean and supported by Councillors Harry Taylor, Nat Green and Andy Boddington:

 

The International Panel on Climate Change has recently made clear the scale of the emergency facing us all. It is clear that current action to reduce emissions is inadequate both globally and in the UK, and if unchecked will result in a catastrophic 3 degrees of global warming.

The UK Government is yet to put forward plans for partnerships with local councils to achieve the Paris climate goals, although emissions reduction efforts at the local level could help the UK government achieve and exceed its existing National Determined Contribution.

In the lieu of a central government lead this Council agrees to:

·         Require all report risk assessments to include Carbon Emission Appraisals, including presenting alternative approaches which reduce emissions wherever possible.

·         Establish a Task and Finish Group of members, to run for a full year, with the remit to recommend actions and challenging targets across the Council’s activities.

§  Task a director-level 'Carbon Champion' officer with responsibility    for promoting the reduction, as rapidly as possible, of carbon emissions resulting from the Council’s activities.

·         Produce and publish our own Climate Action Plan in order to facilitate the most rapid emissions cuts possible.

·         Establish a local Climate Action Partnership to draw in support from business, the wider public sector, the voluntary sector and the wider community.

 

----------------------------

 

Notice of Motion proposed by Councillor Roger Evans and supported by Councillors Chris Mellings, Viv Parry and Heather Kidd:

 

Before the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), most planning applications had Section 106 agreements attached to them in order to identify requirements on developers to make a financial contribution to community and infrastructure projects that were needed as a result of the approved development, These projects were, by and large, within the settlement (town or parish) where the development resulting from planning application was located.

 

When introduced it was stated that the use of CIL would largely follow this same process. This would involve the use of the Local Fund to meet agreed local infrastructure projects.  Recently it appears that a different interpretation has been adopted on the use of CIL. This interpretation has not been subjected to any discussion with the Parish and Town sector. It is acknowledged that the policy of how CIL is used needs to be updated.

 

Council resolves that:

·         Discussions are urgently held between Shropshire Council and representatives of the Shropshire Association of Local Councils (SALC).

·         Any change to the originally understood process to be brought back to a future Shropshire Council Meeting and its agreement sought before being implemented.

 

*Note

Many quote from the document issued by Shropshire Council stating how CIL was to be used. This document includes the statement below. No conversation or discussion has ever been held regarding any change.

5.7 The majority of CIL will be for local infrastructure requirements  ...  view the full agenda text for item 22.
