To consider a notice of motion
proposed by Councillor Jason Zadrozny and seconded by Councillor
David Martin, as follows:-
“This Council notes that
businesses are struggling across our District because of the high
level of business rates. This is why Ashfield District
Council welcomed the Government’s Business Rates Relief
The fund was introduced when the
Government changed the way business rates are calculated. It
set aside £286,806 to help firms in the Ashfield District
whose business rates had been adversely affected.
This Council notes that Ashfield
District Council was the best performing Council in the whole of
Nottinghamshire in terms of distributing the fund. Ashfield
District Council distributed 93.67% of the £286,806 they
received from Government.
This Council regrets that other
Councils in our County did not perform as well and further regrets
that in total, businesses in Nottinghamshire were deprived of
£893,939.00 of funding that would have made a huge difference
to so many small businesses. Of this amount returned only 2%
came from Ashfield District Council, which made us the best
performing Authority in the whole of Nottinghamshire.
We would therefore like to congratulate
this Council on being the best performing Council in the County.
This Council believes that our success sends a clear message that
we value small business and will do everything within our power to
This Council should also be
commended as one of the best performing in the UK when it comes to
the distribution of Discretionary Housing Payments.
2018/19 the Council received DHP funding
of £280,396. We allocated all of that funding and an
additional £25,662 from the Council’s own purse to
support these vulnerable residents.
This Council therefore resolves to
write to the Chancellor of the Exchequer calling for a continuation
of these schemes that have benefitted so many businesses and
residents across our District.”
To consider a notice of motion
proposed by Councillor Tom Hollis and seconded by Councillor John
Wilmott, as follows:-
“This Council notes the decision
of Nottinghamshire County Council to approve the submission of the
application for outline planning permission at Top Wighay Farm in
Hucknall, for mixed-use development comprising of 805 homes and
land for employment purposes.
This Council notes that although the
development is in the Borough of Gedling; the impact of this
development will fall on Hucknall which
is in the Ashfield District.
This Council notes that the
infrastructure in Hucknall is already struggling from a lack of
medical provision, school places and the roads are
This Council notes that Nottinghamshire
County Council is set to gain up to £7 million from the sale
of the land.
This Council calls for Nottinghamshire
County Council to ringfence a portion of the £7 million they
have made from the sale of the site towards improving the
infrastructure in Hucknall, within Ashfield District to alleviate
the impact of any development.
This Council further notes that Gedling
Borough Council is set to benefit from significant Section 106
contributions to alleviate ... view
