Notice of Motion

·           To submit the following Notice of Motion by Councillor J Arwel Roberts:-

 

In April, 2019, the Welsh Government Minister for the Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths, AM, declared a climate emergency in Wales.

 

Gwynedd County Council have already followed WAG and declared along with other authorities to follow the same footpath. 

 

“I call on this Council to follow suit and sign up to the commitment to achieve a Carbon Neutral Public Sector by 2030.  We must recognise that this Council cannot continue with business as usual, and prepare an action plan, which can be monitored and implemented. 

 

We need to stop investing in fossil fuels, use our local planning policies to accelerate the delivery of net zero carbon developments and communities.

 

We are in a position to make a difference for the sake of future generations, and we have a moral duty to act”.

 

·           To submit the following Notice of Motion by Councillor Robert Ll Jones:-

 

‘Our town centres on Ynys Môn are now being put under tremendous stress as people choose to go online for their merchandise, be it clothes, food supplies, shoes and most other things.  We are finding more and more empty shops and also large houses and business premises that are being turned into self-contained one room accommodation.  This has happened in other towns in North Wales and has resulted in a deterioration of the whole town.

 

I am now asking for our Joint Development Plan to be revised and for the legislation to be strengthened in order to give developers the support needed to purchase these premises and to turn them into decent homes that will be available for young families or the elderly who wish to down size as an alternative to the one room developments that are in danger of becoming the norm in our towns. It may lead to looking at a visionary approach to what our present and future role for town centres will be and to build new and innovating buildings in place of our run down Victorian shops as seen in towns all over North Wales.  Tourism is growing everywhere and we need to tap into it by being an attractive place to visit while making our County a place for all of us to be proud of.

 

Do we have the will to take this on as an authority and to take the first step in bringing it into reality or will we continue to muddle on and see our urban environment continue to decline.

 

I AM ASKING FOR A JOINT APPROACH BY ALL OF NORTH WALES AUTHORITIES TO EXAMINE WHAT IS HAPPENING AND TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
