Motion on Environmental Services

This is the motion on environmental services proposed by labour and seconded by the Liberal Democrats.  We are opposed to privatisation of services. That is the conservative administrations preferred option. We need therefore to put in place the principles on which the service is designed.                                                                                                                           “This Council notes our current Environmental Services contract expires in 2018.

 This Council believes our re-provisioned service in 2018 should be based on three fundamental principles-

1) Effectiveness and flexibility: the ability of an excellent service to adapt to changing needs and circumstances.

2) A Highly Responsive Service:  deal constructively with complaints and suggestions from the general public such as promptly responding to fly tipping and graffiti.

3) Partnership: Resident Associations, Park Groups, the University, Colleges and Parish Councils to be involved in the  design of the service and to be encouraged to help manage the service according to their needs.This Council looks forward to the work being undertaken by the respective Scrutiny Group and asks them and the Cabinet to consider this motion.”

 Proposed by: Cllr Danielle Stone

Seconded by: Cllr Sally Beardsworth
