    Motions on Notice

    (A) The following Motion has been proposed by Councillor Ho:

    That Lichfield District Council:

    i)Proclaim its support for the Slow Ways project in its goal to create a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities as well as thousands of villages.

    ii)Further recognise that the Slow Ways project

    • can improve the health and wellbeing of the residents in the district of Lichfield.
    • can help reduce carbon emissions in the district of Lichfield.
    • can help tackle the climate change emergency that the council declared last year.

    iii)Will therefore encourage residents to

    • walk to their place of work.
    • test and review routes that have been drafted by the project.
    • design and share new routes.
    • sign up to the Slow Ways project.

     

    (B) The following Motion has been proposed by Councillor Pullen:

     

    "This Council acknowledges the extraordinary efforts made by employees of Lichfield District Council in 2020, and notes that many will have their pay frozen in the year 2021-2022. In light of this pay freeze, it resolves that all Councillor Allowances are also frozen until May 2022 at the earliest".

     

     

    (C) The following Motion has been proposed by Councillor Ball:

     

    "This Council deplores the very poor performance of the two Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) covering our District, with South East Staffordshire CCG, recorded as "Inadequate" for the past three years, and East Staffordshire CCG performing slightly better, moving from "Good" to "Requires Improvement" over the last year, and resolves to write to our two local MPs, asking them what they personally have done over that period to push for improvements and what else they will do personally in the future.

    In addition, this Council resolves to write to Staffordshire County Council, to ask what they have done over that period to push for improvements and what else they will do in the future.  Finally, this Council agrees that the appropriate CCG representatives from both CCGs should be invited to the Community, Health and Housing Overview and Scrutiny Committee, to inform members about both CCGs' performance and asked what plans they have to improve the situation."
