If you missed the last meeting of Full Council on the 28th January, we’ve got a round up for you. Labour Leader, Councillor Nancy Platts provided a rundown of the meeting in a recent column in Brighton & Hove News:
“Labour councillors tabled questions to hold the administration to account on issues such as food supplies, parking, educational outcomes, bin collections, rough sleeping, low traffic neighbourhoods and more…
“…I was pleased to secure support from the leader of the council to write to the police and crime commissioner and the government demanding more resources to tackle drug dealing in our city…
“…Essentially, [our joint proposal with the Greens on the wellbeing of Future Generations] asked us to include the voices of young people in our discussions and decision-making as a council… it is our moral duty to protect their interests and safeguard their future.
“I’m also proud we won support for [our plans to combat evictions], our lobbying plans to save the Union Learning Fund, our joint proposals to bring in more road safety measures and a cross-party commitment to working towards equality and ensuring trans-inclusive practices are implemented across the council.
“Your Labour councillors stood up for residents, held the administration to account and won backing for policies that will have a positive impact on the city. We will continue to do so.”
