Rushcliffe Borough Council is proud of its record in delivering high quality services to its residents in conjunction with prudent financial management to deliver those services with value for money and efficient use of all of its resources.

 

As a responsible Council it is important to regularly review all of our assets in order to ensure that they

 

  • Deliver value for money
  • Meet the ever changing requirements of our Communities
  • Optimise the best use of the Asset

 

This Council agrees that regular review of its property portfolio is necessary and responsible for the benefit of Rushcliffe residents.

 

This Council also agrees that all Members should support these review processes and do their utmost to uphold the reputation of the Council for delivering good service to its residents.

 

Councillor A Edyvean

 

Rushcliffe is receiving a significant number of housing applications as a result of which house building is underway in the Borough at an expedited rate.  Following the motion considered at this Council in March 2019 relating to the Climate Emergency, this Council calls upon Government to change planning policy to reflect the  resolve to recognise the Climate Emergency and asks that a report be brought to the next meeting of the Council detailing what can be achieved locally now and by Government or other policy changes in the future.
