The following Notice of Motion has been received:

Submitted by Councillor Hook and supported by Councillors Brodie, Connett, Dewhirst, Nutley and Rollason:

"This Council notes that the new Garden Waste Charge is currently being introduced across the District.

The scheme, which is set to start on September 1st and run on an annual basis till the following August 31st, contains certain unfortunate and singularly wrong details.

There is no proportionate reduction for residents who may wish to join the scheme at some stage during the year, or indeed there is no equivalent refund available for those who, for whatever reason, may leave the scheme during the course of the year.

Therefore, this council will

a) undertake an immediate review of the details of this scheme as it impacts on our residents;

b) enable residents who, having paid up front to participate in the scheme, then move out of the district during the course of the year to receive a proportionate refund; and

c) enable new residents to the district to buy into the scheme with a proportionate charge on a per month basis, i.e. a part year subscription."
