MOTIONS REFERRED TO THE EXECUTIVE UNDER STANDING ORDER 31

The following motions were referred to the Executive on 19 August 2014 from the meeting of Falkirk Council on 25 June 2014.
5BONNYBRIDGE MUGA PARK

To bring this matter to finality and to bring this long awaited Muga to our community, I would move the following.

The Muga pitch should be sited at Antonine Primary School. The facility would be shared by both Antonine Primary School and St Joseph's Primary School. It is supported by staff and parents of both schools and its location would not be detrimental to any residential areas.

In moving his motion I am well aware that should this proposal come forward to the planning committee then I would not take part in the decision making but I am like the community despairing of any real progress for our Muga.

Proposed by Baillie Buchanan.

7DENNY EASTERN ACCESS ROAD
(a)Motion

Following the recent decision by the Directorate of Planning and Environmental Appeals (DPEA) that removed the requirement by MacTaggart & Mickel to contribute 550k towards the construction of the Denny Eastern Access Road (DEAR) the Council's strategy for building this road as noted in the Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) is now in serious jeopardy.

As this project can't be delivered within a reasonable timescale under current policy, Council therefore notes that an alternative strategy must be put in place to enhance the current SPG and allow the completion of this vital road artery. Council therefore instructs officers to bring back a report to Full Council indicating how we can achieve our goal of building this road.

Proposed by Councillors Oliver and McNally.
