Debates at this meeting will include a proposal to formally identify one or more sites within the District Council’s control as suitable temporary Traveller sites for occupation by members of two Gypsy and Traveller families who have presented themselves as homeless.
There is also a report outlining the out-turn position for 2021/22 and the revised Capital Programme for 2022/23 to 2024/25. A number of new projects are proposed for inclusion, subject to successful funding bids.
The meeting will also debate this motion submitted by Councillor Peter O'Brien:
1 a) “in view of the continued and increasing disturbance caused by the operations of Network Rail and its contractors to local residents in the environmentally sensitive and residential area in the vicinity of Grindleford Station, the Council uses its best efforts commensurate with resources available to secure the relocation of the engineering and
maintenance facilty to a more appropriate location”.
1 b) “Pending the relocation of the engineering and maintenance facility, the Council continues to explore with Network Rail all means possible to mitigate the disturbance caused to residents in the vicinity of Grindleford Station; as a last resort, appropriate statutory and/or legal powers be utlised”.
