Notices of motion:

5a

From County Councillor D. Batrouni

That this Council is dismayed and disappointed that the Tory administration has failed to deliver an “evidence based proposition” for the creation of a Local Housing Company by September 2018. That this Council asks for an explanation from the administration as to why this has not happened and seek reassurances such a proposition comes to Council as soon as possible. 

 

 

5b

From County Councillor D. Batrouni

That this Council notes evidence from some Chepstow primary schools of the negative impact the introduction of a charge for the childcare element of free school breakfasts has had on admissions; regrets its negative effect on social justice in the county; and asks the Tory administration to urgently review its regressive policy.

 

5c

From County Councillor P. Fox

This Council reaffirms its support for the proposed M4 Relief Road, recognising how fundamental it will be in unlocking the economic future of South Wales following the welcome decision to remove the Severn Bridge tolls.

The Council is extremely disappointed that progress towards a positive decision has stalled and calls on the Welsh Government to demonstrate its unequivocal support to the communities and businesses of South Wales by delivering this key piece of infrastructure. 

To these ends the Council asks the Leader to write to the First Minister expressing its views.
