Motions Pursuant to Council Procedure Rule No. 10

Motion 1

 

Combating Litter

 

“Chairman, I am sure that we will all have spoken to residents over the last few months who have commented on how dramatically litter levels declined during the national lockdown.  However, litter is again becoming a common issue despite the hard work of the street cleaners and bin men.  Therefore, all of  us must play our part in preventing the build up of litter in our community.  This motion outlines how we can do this.

 

West Lindsey District Council notes that:

·         The Keep Britain Tidy Campaign offers local councils the opportunity to become members of a Network, which provides access to specialist advice and support.

·         The campaign is also promoting a Love Parks campaign and a Charity Bin sponsorship scheme whereby the monies raised from recycling cans is contributed to local charities.

·         Several national supermarket chains are now operating trials of reverse vending machines, whose customers are rewarded for returning used cans and bottles for recycling.

·         DEFRA has published a voluntary code for local businesses and groups to sign up to and reduce the litter that results from fast food businesses.

 

West Lindsey District Council recognises that:

·         Whilst we are committed to tackling litter in our District and to working for cleaner streets, roads, verges and public spaces across our communities, we can not do this alone.

·         In the battle for cleaner streets and public spaces, we must involve the public and businesses in a co-operative effort.

·         There are community champions and organisations commendably  ‘doing their bit’.

·         In doing their bit, residents and businesses help the Council make the

·         streets, town/villages, parks and public amenities of our District more inviting to residents and visitors.

 

West Lindsey District Council resolves to:

·         Promote participation in litter prevention activities to members of the public, community, faith and youth groups, through our social media, website and existing emails-outs to partners.

·         To examine the merits of becoming a local authority member of the Keep Britain Tidy Network, and identify which of the campaign’s including Love Parks and Charity Bins, could be introduced in the District.

·         Ask the Leader and Chief Executive to write to national supermarket chains with stores in this district asking them to install a reverse vending machine.

·         Promote take up of the DEFRA voluntary code amongst our fast food businesses and local business partnerships and seek their sponsorship for the introductory of a Charity Bin scheme and for public education programme.

 

I so move.

 

Councillor Stephen Bunney”

 

 

Motion 2

 

Universal Credit and Free School Meals

 

“Chairman, it is widely accepted that the £20 per week uplift to Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit along with the provision of vouchers to those families eligible for Free School Meals has been a lifeline for families during the coronavirus storm. 

 

The ending of the Universal Credit uplift in April 2021 will see families, representing around 16 million individuals, overnight lose £1040 per year.

 

Inevitably this will hit those on the lowest incomes and families with children.  The Joseph Rowntree Foundation  ...  view the full agenda text for item 10.
