7 - Notice of Motions

a) To consider the following Notice of Motion to be moved by Councillor J Berry

“This Council noting its decision to adopt a Living Wage for its directly employed staff at its meeting on 21 February 2013, and recognising as it does in CAB 2549 (HSG):-

i) That an annual household income of over £63,000 is needed to purchase a home, with significantly higher levels in some parts of the District
ii) That the current programme of welfare reforms creates further uncertainty over how a number of those facing homelessness might achieve a housing solution which is affordable to them. Similarly levels of fuel poverty in turn can impact significantly upon housing affordability.
iii) Of applicants on the Winchester housing register, approximately 80% of those households have an income below £15,000 a year

Council believes that a fairer Winchester will mean a better Winchester, and that the examples above indicate some of the inequalities that can and should be addressed.

Council resolves to establish a Fairness Commission to investigate and advance equality of opportunity and outcome for all residents of Winchester.”

b) To consider the following Notice of Motion to be moved by Councillor Evans

“This Council supports the residents of Wickham and Knowle and rejects any proposals to place sports pitches within the land in the Winchester District known as ‘The Knowle Triangle’ as proposed in Fareham Borough Council’s Welborne Master Plan. This Council reaffirms its position that this green buffer gap between Knowle and Fareham’s proposed Welborne settlement should remain as open and undeveloped land without any built structures or formal open spaces within it and requests Cabinet and officers respond to any consultations or planning applications accordingly.”

8 - The making or termination of appointments to bodies set up by the Council.
