NOTICES OF MOTION

Motion A in the name of Councillor Feeley

 

That this Council believes that in light of the Government’s refusal to fund free school meals for our most vulnerable children this half term, it is now necessary to publically call on the Prime Minister to support Marcus Rashford’s campaign to end Child Food Poverty with a second vote in the House of Commons with the full backing of the Conservative Party.

 

This Council believes that no child should suffer holiday hunger, which is why we actively sought to make available the necessary support to families entitled to free school meals with the provision of supermarket vouchers over the half term holiday. 9000 children across the borough are entitled to such support and Tameside Council will do all that it can to ensure that no child is neglected on the basis of the Government’s inaction.

 

Council would also like to note its gratitude and appreciation of Tameside teachers, school support staff, community volunteers, third party partners and businesses who have worked with us in providing support in tackling holiday hunger over the October half term.

 

This Council resolves:

·         To ask the Chief Executive to write to the Prime Minister and express this Council’s belief that a second Common’s vote should be held to provide additional Free School Meal support over this year’s Christmas school holidays.

If the Government once again fails to do the right thing in the provision of free school meals, we as a Council will once again provide the support that is needed to ensure that no child goes hungry throughout this year’s Christmas school holidays

 

 

Motion B in the name of Councillor Newton

 

That this Council notes the planning application submitted to Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council and referenced DC/074399, for a large scale extension to the Bredbury Parkway Industrial Estate on the border with Tameside.

 

That this Council further notes the land is protected as Green Belt and forms part of the Tame river valley which is a shared natural asset of both boroughs.

 

As the application currently stands, the development would stretch down to the river bank, destroying the openness of the Tame Valley at this location, and severely impacting on the Hulme’s and Hardy Woods Local Nature Reserve and Haughton Dale Local Nature Reserve, both in Tameside.

 

That the proposed development does not accord with the Stockport Unitary Development Plan preserved policies or the Stockport Core Strategy, neither does it accord with the draft GMSF allocation in relation to:

  • Need
  • Green Belt
  • The Environment
  • The River Valleys
  • Air Quality

 

That this Council notes the existing traffic problems on the A6017 Stockport Road, Denton, arising from the Bredbury Industrial Estate and poor associated transport infrastructure that would be made significantly worse by the additional HGV traffic from an extensive addition to this Industrial Estate.

 

That this Council considers that no exceptional circumstances can be made for the proposal before Stockport Council.

 

That this Full Council notes and supports the planning objections made by Tameside Council, councillors, Andrew  ...  view the full agenda text for item 11.
