NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLOR ALUN LENNY:-

“This council believes that the whole of Carmarthenshire is an ‘area of linguistic sensitivity and significance’ and that the planning system has a crucial role to play in supporting the Welsh language across the county. To this end, we believe that the language should be a Material Planning Consideration in all applications for the development offive or more houses in rural areas and ten or more in urban areas in every community, irrespective of the percentage of Welsh speakers.

 

We maintain that this policy is necessary and justifiable due to:

 

·         the need to address the severe and unexpected reduction in the number of Welsh-speakers in Carmarthenshire in the 2011 Census

 

·         being a contribution towards the Welsh Government’s target of creating a million Welsh-speakers by 2050

 

·         complying with the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act, in particular “a Wales of Vibrant Culture and Welsh Language: a society that promotes and protects culture, heritage and the Welsh language…”

NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLOR BILL THOMAS:-

“In April last year, Carmarthenshire County Council unanimously passed a motion that included a call for the council to reduce single-use plastics in Council buildings and offices. That motion also called on the council to encourage schools to stop using single-use plastics and to start to use sustainable materials.

 

That motion was referred to this year when the Leader of the Council responded to a question from eleven year old Coral Sylvan on climate change. At the same meeting, we agreed to declare a climate emergency in our county.

 

Pupils in schools across our county have taken up this challenge. At the June governors meeting at Ysgol Y Felin, we were told that the school’s Eco committee had requested non plastic containers for their milk. When the school contacted the council they were told that the milk contract couldn’t be changed and that they had received no other interest in providing glass bottles.

 

To support a campaign to reduce the use of single-use plastic in their school, Five Roads school has created a poster showing pupils drowning in plastic.

 

Therefore, we propose that Carmarthenshire County Council:

 

1. Congratulate the school Eco committees on looking for ways to stop the use of single-use plastics.

 

2. Thank the Eco committees for identifying a practical solution to the over use of plastic in schools.

 

3. Identify ways to move to the supply of milk in re-usable glass bottles instead of plastic in our primary schools.”
