Notices of Motion

20a

Written Notice of Motion from Councillor H Thomas

This council believes its members are elected to represent and serve all residents of Torridge.

 

Councillors should, therefore, take a lead role in any decision that may affect the livelihood and welfare of Torridge residents and take ownership of these decisions rather than simply following a single path laid down by officers.

 

Based on this principle, full council should be given a report containing a minimum of three options for the future location(s) of Operational Services. This report should include details of the estimated costs, advantages and disadvantages of each option.

 

Discussion of which option to choose should be held in public session at full council, with a choice of recommendations based on these options. A recorded vote should be taken on any motion.

 

This principle should also be applied to all future projects developed by TDC that involve £2 million or more of council funds and/or involve building on council-owned land, the sale of council assets or major alterations to any council property.

 

21.

Exclusion of Public

The Chair to move:

 

“That the public be excluded from the remainder of the meeting because of the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972”

22.

PART II - (Closed Session)

Items which may be taken in the absence of the public and press on the grounds that exempt information may be disclosed.
