To receive the following Questions from:

How many court actions, (fines, attachment to earnings orders etc.) and the use of bailiffs have BCBC used in the last 12 months to recover unpaid council tax, and how much has been recovered in such actions?

 

Councillor A Hussain to the Cabinet Member Social Services and Early Help

 

Evidence has emerged during the Pandemic that health professionals from ethnic backgrounds have been disproportionately affected by COVID – 19.

 

Could the Cabinet Member assure us that all health professionals working in Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Authority including our Care Homes had their risk assessments as a precautionary measure including their ethnicity as a risk factor, along with age, weight, underlying health conditions, disability and pregnancy, and what have we learned?

Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor R Young

Bridgend County Borough Council recognises the overwhelming scientific evidence of changing weather patterns as demonstrated by the recent unprecedented rainfall and flooding both at a local and a UK wide level, and is of the opinion that this represents further evidence of global warming, and therefore firmly believes that a climate emergency now exists, and as such calls upon the UK and Welsh Governments to provide Bridgend County Borough Council with:

 

a.    the necessary powers and resources to make Bridgend County Borough carbon neutral

b.    levels of resource at a scale to respond to the challenges faced and processes for accessing those resources that enable action at the earliest opportunity

 

i)            Establish appropriate engagement mechanisms to work with key stakeholders

 

ii)           Undertake a Bridgend County Borough Council wide review of current action to respond to Climate Emergency

 

iii)           Develop a Climate Emergency Response Strategy and prioritised action plan that sets out short, medium and long term actions.
