Pembrokeshire County Council Notices of motion to go to scrutiny committee

A number of Notices of Motion were put forward by councillors at December’s full council meeting.

The notices were passed to relevant scrutiny committees for further discussion next year.

They include one for Cllr Josh Beynon about divesting the Dyfed Pension Fund, which Pembrokeshire County Council is a member of, from all fossil fuel stocks by 2022.

Another relates to fireworks and the need for public advertising of organised events, promoting animal welfare and the impact on vulnerable people as well as asking government to consider limiting the maximum noise levels for fireworks displays, put forward by Cllr Guy Woodham.

Cllr David Lloyd is calling on the council to set up a task and finish group to assess housing needs in Pembrokeshire and to develop a strategy to support those struggling due to house prices, the impact of tourism and second home ownership or holiday lets.

Haverfordwest’s five councillors – David Bryan, Alison Tudor, Thomas Tudor, Lyndon Frayling and Tim Evans – have joined together to ask that the council establishes an alcohol exclusion zone using a Public Space Protection Order at the town’s skate park and Picton Playing Fields.

Cllr Jamie Adams wants a “scoping exercise” for an investigation into the circumstances leading to the departure of chief executive Ian Westley with reference to a Local Government Association report about the authority, published earlier this year.
