10. Notice of Motions

Notice of Motion to be put to Council by Councillor Edwards

          “This meeting of the Council:

  • recognises the hard work already undertaken by Portfolio Holders and the Chief Executive to develop the key strategic sites in the Rushcliffe Local Plan Part 1 to reach the target of building over 13,000 new houses by 2028;
  • is concerned that the Local Plan’s vision that up to 30% of the target being affordable homes – including homes for social rent – is not likely to be achieved on the basis of experience so far at Fairham Pastures (Land south of Clifton) given the growing shortfall of genuinely affordable housing to buy and social housing to rent in the Borough; and
  • calls upon the Council to publish clarification that we reasonably expect developers and applicants to come forward with schemes that are viable with a minimum of 20% of affordable homes – including homes for social rent – towards the target of 30%

Notice of Motion to be put to Council by Councillor Robinson

“This Council recognises the importance of neighbourhood plans in facilitating and enabling local communities to communicate their preferences and needs to accommodate growth. However it calls upon the Government to ensure local communities are not placed at risk of unwanted development due to a lack of delivery of a five year land supply especially where the land supply is calculated for the benefit of areas outside the Borough Council boundary.”

Notice of Motion to be put to Council by Councillor Robinson

“Following the recent announcement that this Authority is to benefit from the support of £9.9 million housing infrastructure and £300,000 Land release funding, this Council endorses and supports the work of members and officers to maximise income opportunities to support the delivery of housing and growth in the Borough.”
