NOTICE OF MOTIONS

13.1

The Following notice of motion has been submitted by Councillors T A Cullen and B C Carr:

“This Council notes with concern the current situation regarding homelessness and the lack of homes to meet the required need, particularly in relation to social rented houses. This Council therefore resolves to accelerate its own build programme and utilise new developments and S106 contributions to fund this accelerated programme.”

 

13.2

The following notice of motion was submitted by the Liberal Democrat Group:

“It is proposed that Broxtowe Borough Council:

 

1.         Notes that existing Midlands Mainline is operating close to its full capacity.

2.         Notes that the existing rail services between Nottingham and Beeston on the one hand and Birmingham and Manchester on the other are slow and at peak times often heavily overcrowded.

3,         Notes that the HS2 rail line will lead to far faster journeys between Nottingham and Beeston and London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

4.         Notes that the HS2 rail line will bring significant benefits to the East Midlands in terms of connectivity and inward investment.

5.         Notes that London and the South East have benefited from the £15 billion investment in the Crossrail project.

6.         Notes with disappointment comments from some Government ministers and London centred media that the HS2 project should be scrapped and that the Government have ordered a review into the whole project.

7.         Notes the efforts that have been made by the HS2 team to minimise the impact of the line and to refine the proposed plans for the route, although also notes the impact that this will have on some people’s properties.

8.         Supports the proposal for the HS2 station in the East Midlands to be located at Toton.

9.         Broxtowe Borough Council therefore affirms its support for the HS2 project and calls on the government to ensure that this scheme is brought forward and constructed as soon as possible.

10.      Broxtowe Borough Council further calls on the government to ensure that everyone whose property will be affected by HS2 is properly compensated and that the compensation scheme is available in full now for those who are most affected.”
