Council are asked to consider the following Motion on Notice that has been submitted :-

(1) Motion received from Councillors Wainwright, T Wright, B Wright, Williamson, B Walker and C Walker.

Following the announcement of the Governments white paper on Levelling up, we are disappointed to learn that any devolution deal for Norfolk does not require the consent of Districts or Boroughs.


Gt Yarmouth Borough Council has a long history of delivering for the residents of the Borough.


Projects such as the Outer Harbour, Third River crossing, New Energy Park, along with ground breaking public private partnerships such as GYMI, GYTA and more recently the BID.


We have also been at the forefront for obtaining £millions of grants over many years with the exemplary work from our Borough officers and lately the joint working of councillors across the political divide and officers have delivered well during the Covid outbreak.


We therefore ask that this Council opposes, as it has done before, any proposals for a directly elected Mayor and a Unitary Council for Norfolk, and that GY Borough Council and its residents be allowed to continue determining our own future.



To consider any other business as may be determined by the Chairman of the meeting as being of sufficient urgency to warrant consideration.

In the event of the Committee wishing to exclude the public from the meeting, the following resolution will be moved:-

"That under Section 100(A)(4) of the Local Government Act 1972, the public be excluded from the meeting for the following item of business on the grounds that it involved the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraph 1 of Part I of Schedule 12(A) of the said Act."
