Questions by Elected Members in accordance with Council Procedure Rules 15.2 and 15.3

(i)        Questions on Notice to the Executive:-


(a)  Question from Councillor Nick Allen to the Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones:-


“How many officers from DMBC contributed to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s technical consultation on the assessment of local authorities' relative needs and resources?  Do you support the contributions of those officers and to what extent did they ensure the Fair Funding review: 'considers the type of adjustment that will be made to an authority’s relative needs assessment to take account of the relative resources available to them to fund local services'?  These are significant issues which have recently been misrepresented, for political gain, despite some clear economic benefits for Doncaster.”


(b)  Question from Councillor Jane Cox to the Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones:-


“Doncaster Council correctly declared a climate emergency in September 2019.  Does the Mayor feel that the current Tree Policy is robust and sufficient to move the borough forward given the recent environmental damage in and around Doncaster.  The planting of trees is vital and with historic issues around the town such as Mill Lane in Warmsworth and Middlefield Road in Bessacarr are very much in the headlines.  As was the failure to plant trees properly in Finningley Ward.  Is our declaration of a climate emergency consistent with the town’s tree policy and what issues do you feel should be addressed in the near future?”


(ii)     Questions without Notice to the Executive and the Chairs of Committees.
