Minutes:

A – Executive Leader’s Report

 

A written report was received from the Executive Leader, Cllr Aspden, on the work of the Executive.

 

Prior to the responses from Opposition Group Leaders, it was moved by Cllr Rowley, and seconded by Cllr Warters, that Standing Order 16.2 be suspended to allow Cllr Rowley to respond to the Leader’s report in the absence of Cllr Doughty.  On being put to the vote, this motion was declared LOST.

 

Members were then invited to question the Leader on his report.  Questions were received from the floor from the following Members in relation to the subjects listed:

 

York Central

·        Question from Cllr Rowley on when businesses were expected to move on site.

·        Supplementary from Cllr Crawshaw on risk to the council in keeping the project moving forward.

·        Supplementary from Cllr Perrett on priorities should the Housing Infrastructure Funding (HIF) bid not be successful.

 

The Leader responded, stating that matters would progress once the government released HIF funding for the infrastructure, the site risk was currently at its lowest level for 40 years and he would be happy to have further discussions with Opposition groups on the issues raised.

 

York Outer Ring Road (ORR)

·        Question from Cllr Warters on whether dualling the ORR would facilitate over-development in the area.

·        Supplementary from Cllr Warters on whether the Leader supported reducing the housing allocation in the Local Plan.

·        Supplementary from Cllr Webb on whether the Deputy Leader had been involved in lobbying on the ORR.

 

The Leader responded, stating that dualling was needed to create space on the ORR, that sustainable transport must also be considered and that the Local Plan had been submitted and would be tested on examination.  The final question should be addressed to the Deputy Leader.
