Questions from Members of the Public


To receive questions from members of the public who wish to ask a general question in respect of matters within the Council’s area of responsibility or influence.


Subject to the Chair’s discretion, members of the public may ask one question and one supplementary question, which should relate to the original question and answered received.


Councillors may also ask questions under this agenda item.



Councillor Sansome had intended raising his query via the Overview and Scrutiny Management Board regarding the Rotherham Employment and Skills Strategy, but sought reassurance that the Council would be centric to the partnership across major employers such as the Advanced Manufacturing Park, Rotherham College and construction.  This area of South Yorkshire was crying out for engineering and construction skills and this was a perfect opportunity to work with others in partnership to sustain skills for the future.


Councillor Lelliott confirmed the Strategy was before the Cabinet for endorsement as it would be led by the Rotherham Together Partnership via their Business Growth Board which would underpin all of this.  Within this Strategy there would be clear action plans about investment for growth, but the comments by Councillor Sansome would be taken on board and shared with the Business Growth Board.
