Questions by Elected Members

To consider any questions which may have been received from Elected Members and which are asked pursuant to Standing Order No. 11.


(a)  Councillor Eastwood


‘We know the weather is very unpredictable, and the gritters have been out more than usual and filling the yellow bins, they are doing a fantastic job keeping us safe on the main roads.


Do we have enough salt to keep the roads safe, and enough finances to keep going throughout the winter months?’


(b)  Councillor Wilson


‘There has been a huge rise in dog ownership across the country since the start of the pandemic. This has undoubtedly led to increased use of the council's dog waste bins by responsible dog owners.

What is the council's policy when these waste bins need replacing?


(c)  Councillor Lodge


‘Could the Cabinet Member responsible provide an update on the progress of a Borough-wide poverty needs assessment?


(d)  Councillor Fielding


‘The Noise Assessment for the Penny Pie Park Gyratory was published in September 2018 and identified that 56 homes around the former park would suffer such significant adverse effects of noise from the operation of the new gyratory that they would be legally entitled under the Noise Insulation Regulations for noise mitigation measures to be provided by the Council.


Can the Cabinet member please advise, two and a half years after this assessment was published, how many residents of the affected houses have been informed that their homes will suffer significant adverse effects of noise or consulted about what mitigation measures they will be entitled to and told when they can expect the mitigation measures such as additional glazing and mechanical forced ventilation to be installed in their homes?’


(e)  Councillor Frost

‘I regularly cycle on the TPT to Oxspring and on to Dunford Bridge but the trail is usually inaccessible in Winter due to the amount of standing water and mud.  After the recent dry spell, I travelled up the TPT and found that from Wigfield Farm to the M1 bridge extensive works had been carried out to improve the drainage, prune trees and lay hardstanding.  This meant not only cycles could travel more easily but people with disabilities as well.

Are the improvements to be continued to the Silkstone Tunnels and what other areas are to be improved in this way in the borough?’

(f)   Councillor Lodge


‘A recent survey of social workers across the UK, found that 70% of respondents believed that the Covid-19 Pandemic has had an impact on their mental health. What support has been put in place locally to support social workers in Adults and Children’s services?


(g)  Councillor Kitching


‘There have been tragic news headlines recently about the abduction and murder of Sarah Everard while she was walking home. I recognise the fear felt by most women when walking dark streets alone at night.

While I appreciate that the police and central government have a huge role to play, what specifically is this Council doing to protect women in  ...  view the full agenda text for item 33.
