The Council received two questions from the Youth Council. The responses to the two questions had been published in the supplementary agenda for the meeting.
In relation to Question 1, concerning environmental projects with which the Youth Council could be involved, the Youth Mayor asked the following supplementary question:
“Is there a Member/officer whom the Youth Council to speak to in more detail about assisting with projects within the Biodiversity Action Plan?”
The Portfolio Holder for Environment & Regeneration replied that if the Youth Council had particular proposals then he would ensure that they were considered by officers and reported back. He or one of the officer team would be more than prepared to attend the next meeting of the Youth Council to discuss the matter.
In relation to Question 2, concerning Black Lives Matter (BLM), the Youth Mayor asked the following supplementary question:
“Could the Youth Council be directed to anyone in the Council who could assist them in the organisation of a peaceful demonstration in support of the BLM movement?”
The Portfolio Holder for Communities, Community Safety & Equalities suggested that, in the first instance, the Youth Council contact the Council’s Neighbourhoods & Communities Team for advice and assistance.
