County Council Meeting – 10th July 2012

In here, 10am, Tuesday.

It’s that time again – we have a County Council meeting next Tuesday, 10th July. The meeting will start at 10.00am, and will be held at Shire Hall, Warwick.

Council is a really interesting meeting;  it’s the only forum where all 62 of our Councillors meet, where the most debate happens and one of the busiest times here in Democratic Services.

The Council elected a new Chair in May this year, and this will be his first full Council meeting since being appointed – here’s a short news story about the new Chair, Councillor Michael Doody.

There will be plenty going on next week – here’s the agenda in summary:

  • Petition – “Save Bath Place Community Venture”
  • Partnership Landscapes
  • Former Ford Foundry Site – Addition to the Capital Programme
  • Community Right to Challenge
  • Establishing a Police and Crime Panel
  • New Standards Framework
  • Report from Portfolio Holder – Customers, Access and Property

As always, our meetings are open to the public and you’re all welcome to attend. You can download the agenda and reports for the meeting here.

Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee – 9th February 2012

The next meeting of the Communities Overview & Scrutiny Committee will be held on the 9th of February in Committee Room 2, Shire Hall, Warwick.

The following items will be considered at the meeting:

  • Neighbourhood Policing Review – Following changes to the way the Police force operates in Warwickshire that began on 9 May 2011, this report discusses the changes and how they have been received so far.
  • Transport Infrastructure for Major Development – This report gives an overview of how the County Council supports major development.
  • Street Lighting Energy Saving project – Following a budget cut of £500k, Warwickshire will move to part-night street lighting. This report outlines the proposals and gives background for a member working group who will be looking at the issue in more detail.
