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 Fielding


‘The increased costs of the Dodworth Road Improvement Scheme (better known as the Penny Park Gyratory) was approved at Cabinet in October 2020 as £7.448 million. Is it likely that the scheme will now be completed within this increased budget’.


(b)  Councillor Hunt

‘In February 2019 the council announced changes to street bin collections. The changes made included providing residents with the ability to dispose of dog waste in any of the general litter street bins and tagging all street bins with a unique reference number. Following on from this the council were to roll out in-cab technology and use data to inform a second phase of changes to street bin collections. What improvements are planned and when will this second phase be implemented?’

(c)  Councillor Fielding


‘I was pleased to learn that following my earlier interventions on the costs of heat to tenants of district heating schemes that costs have been reviewed but no announcement of the results of this review is planned to be made public until at least November when Cabinet consider the results of the review. Will this announcement be made immediately  so that vulnerable tenants can learn as soon as possible if their heating costs are being reduced to a level that they can afford as they enter the winter heating season’.


(d)  Councillor Hunt

‘The council’s website details litter cleaning schedules. Service levels are shown for various roads in the borough varying from two weekly to four weekly cleaning. Is the council currently meeting these service levels and how has the litter cleaning schedule been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic?’
