On Wednesday 20th July there was a Wyre Forest District Council Full Council Meeting. During this meeting Cllr Marcus Hart, Leader of the Conservative Group, submitted an Amended Notice of Motion to the Full Council to raise concerns about the state of our District. The full Amended Notice of Motion is as follows:
Amended Notice of Motion from The Conservative Group to be proposed by Cllr. Marcus Hart and seconded by Cllr. Ian Hardiman:-
Whilst accepting the importance of ‘No Mow May and Too soon June’ to the insect life of the District and that the use of weedkillers should be carefully controlled, This Council is appalled at the current state of the District. A core
priority of this Council is to ‘Keep the District Safe, Clean and Looking Good’.
This Council calls upon the Leadership of this Council and the Cabinet Member with responsibility to get a grip on this fundamental issue and that core statutory functions of this Council and other non-statutory functions but of which come under this corporate theme and are a key quality of life issue for our residents.
Will the Cabinet Member assure this Council that roads will be swept, grass will be cut, parks and open spaces will be kept tidy and litter bins emptied and this Council calls upon him to formally apologise for the woefully inadequate level of service that the Progressive Alliance is giving to the council tax payers of this District? Council further requests that in order to keep elected members and members of the public up to date, regular updates are sent to the Overview & Scrutiny Committee on how it is meeting its KPIs in cutting the grass and sweeping the streets and emptying the litter bins.
