NOTICE OF MOTION - SALE AND USE OF FIREWORKS

·         Fireworks are only permitted for sale for Chinese New Year and three days prior, Diwali and three days prior, from 15 October to 10 November (for Guy Fawkes Night), and from 26 to 31 December (for New Year)

·         Using or buying fireworks illegally can result in a £5,000 fine or imprisonment for up to 6 months.

·         Breaking these laws can result in an on-the-spot fine of £90.

 

This Council resolves that:-

 

·         the Cabinet liaise with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Authority to better control the year-round licensed sales and use of fireworks ensuring that:

o    sales should be restricted to licence holders only; and

o    a leaflet or notice should be issued by all licensed sellers, to include the times of use, to improve awareness and understanding of the law on the usage of fireworks.

15.

NOTICE OF MOTION - DROPPINGWELL LANDFILL

 

That this Council notes:

 

·         Over the years, the Droppingwell site has suffered from poor administration and enforcement action by both the environment agency and RMBC and this has brought about apathy within the local community towards any local authority decision.

 

This Council believes that:

 

·         by conducting consultation it would re-instate some of the confidence in the authorities administration over planning. 

·         this is a public amenity and therefore all efforts should be made to garner all relevant views to any alterations which could carry significant risks to the users of this public resource and it should not be a decision that should be taken by a faceless officer without public scrutiny.

 

This Council resolves that:

 

·         echoing the call from the residents of Droppingwell, Kimberworth and Blackburn, the Cabinet Member for Waste, Roads and Community Safety and the Chair of the Planning Board should give a cast iron guarantee today that, prior to any further planning permission, variations or amendments in relation to the Grange Park site, including the Grange landfill site, its accesses, access lane and any alteration to entrances or junctions, a full and comprehensive consultation will be conducted. This would include all patrons of the site, the football club and all local residents.

 

Proposer:       Councillor Hague                 Seconder:      Councillor Cowles
