To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr C.J. Stewart pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“Taking into account the responses from residents to the recent consultation on a long-term vision for the Borough, this Council agrees to develop a plan to enable a green and sustainable Rushmoor and a carbon neutral Council by 2030.”

 

(2)      Climate Emergency –

 

To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr A.J Halstead pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“This Council will hereby:

 

1.         Declare a ‘Climate Emergency’;

2.         Pledge to make the Borough of Rushmoor carbon-neutral by 2030, taking into account production and consumption emissions;

3.         Explore ethical procurement, and incentivising electric car usage;

4.         Seek to exceed the national average for recycling rates;

(3)      Rushmoor Community Contribution Scheme –

 

To consider the following Notice of Motion, which has been submitted by Cllr A.S. Dekker pursuant to Standing Order 9 (1):

 

“That this Council introduce a "Community Contribution Scheme" similar to that run by Westminster Council.  Higher value properties, such as band H, would be asked to make a voluntary contribution of double the normal contribution of Rushmoor's share of the council tax.

 

Funds raised by the scheme would be used in three specific areas:

 

·                Helping young people – investing in youth clubs

·                Extra support for people who find themselves sleeping on the streets

·                Helping to tackle isolation and loneliness – not just amongst the elderly but across all age groups, including children.”
