Questions by Elected Members pdf icon PDF 362 KB

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

 

a)    Councillor Fielding

“The proposed new Free School to be built on Broadway intended to open for the September 2023 intake has been further delayed due to an inadequate bat survey and an incomplete traffic assessment preventing the granting of planning permission. The opening of the permanent accommodation will now be delayed by at least 12 months meaning that further temporary accommodation will have to be provided to ensure the Council fulfils  its statutory duty as the LEA.

Given the clear financial and educational interest of the Council in this matter what steps were taken by the Council to avoid this delay and the consequent further unnecessary disruption to students education and how much will this further delay cost the Council.”

b)    Councillor Hunt

“For the 21/22 financial year the council allocated a budget of £90,000 for neighbourhood road safety schemes. A total of 49 requests were received from Ward Members, giving an estimated total scheme value of £517,000. Each suggestion was given an initial assessment following which 15 schemes were taken forward for further investigation by the Traffic team. An initial cost estimate of each scheme was undertaken for the 15 schemes, which gave a total works cost of £197,000. Please list the locations of these 15 schemes.”

c)    Councillor Hunt

“Please list the sites where neighbourhood road safety schemes will be undertaken using the £90,000 budget allocated for the 21/22 financial year.”

The War in Ukraine

Proposer – Councillor Greenhough

 

Seconder – Councillor Wray

 

That this Council:

 

Notes with shock and horror the deeply upsetting and concerning situation within Ukraine, and believes that Vladimir Putin’s attack on Ukraine is an unprovoked, unjustifiable outrage and a heinous violation of international law that is having tragic consequences on the people and nation of Ukraine;

 

Takes a stand in complete solidarity with the Ukrainian people as they bravely resist this invasion;

 

Notes the horrific ordeal facing many as they flee to safety and who now face an uncertain future that they could never have imagined;

 

Notes that for many years Barnsley has been twinned with the City of Horlivka in Ukraine and we have a well-established Ukrainian community in our region, and believes we must stand with them and against the bullying tactics of Putin’s Russian State and the military aggression that Ukraine is facing;

 

Notes that this is not a war waged by Russian citizens but by its President and his high-ranking military officials, and notes that many Russians have made Yorkshire their home;

 

Notes that there are many in Russia who are standing up for what is right and making their voices heard against their own Government, and these people must be commended, and notes that due to brutal police crackdowns on freedom of speech it is dangerous to voice anti-Putin sentiments with tens of thousands having been arrested so far;

 

Believes that Barnsley is a town of sanctuary, and we should be proud of that fact. We can and should provide a safe place to people in their time of need and that, though ultimately immigration and asylum matters are for the national government, we will always willingly and openly take our fair share of people in need.
