Public Questions and Petitions


Notices of Motion

    The Council is asked to consider the following three Motions that have been submitted in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 10:


    a)    It will be moved by Councillor Taylor and seconded by Councillor Neil Emmott that:


    “This Council recognises that there has been a marked deterioration in the standard of driving, particularly in the evenings where instances of dangerous driving and excessive speed have become commonplace. This is an issue across the whole Borough and it is of serious and increasing concern to our communities. The dangerous use of our highways is now so prevalent is has morphed from anti-social behaviour to a serious road safety issue.


    This Council requests that the Chief Executive undertakes to bring together a group of Members, relevant officers, partner organisations and stakeholders to address this matter of significant concern, through a combination of community engagement, awareness raising, education, prevention and enforcement interventions, with a view to making the Borough's highways and its drivers safer.”


    b)    It will be moved by Councillor Wardle and seconded by Councillor Hartley that:


    “As bonfire night approaches, the National Farmers Union (NFU) is urging councils across England and Wales to introduce a total ban on sky lanterns to avoid fires, harm to animals and littering.


    More than 70 local authorities have already introduced bans, and the NFU is encouraging more councils to follow their example and ban the dangerous lanterns, which are frequently set off around bonfire night, Christmas and New Year.


    The lanterns sometimes called Chinese lanterns have caused devastating damage to buildings and farm fields, as well as gruesome injuries to livestock and other animals.


    Scotland has brought in a total ban on these lanterns, and more than 70 councils in England and Wales have banned the sale and use of the lanterns including Bolton, Oldham, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Cheshire East and Cheshire West & Chester.


    I urge members of the council to support the banning of these lanterns, keeping us aligned with other GM authorities.”


    c)    It will be moved by Councillor Dearnley and seconded by Councillor Holly that:


    “The Communities of Rochdale deserve to have confidence in our democratic processes.  In light of his recent acceptance of a police caution relating to an electoral offence, and the consequential damage caused to public confidence in local democracy, this Council calls upon Councillor Faisal Rana to consider his position as an elected member of this authority.”
