(1)      Anti- Racism – Amanda Evans

Following the excellent report and debate at the last meeting of this committee, and the NoM passed at full council, could we please have a brief update on the progress of the work being done on Becoming an Anti-Racist Council?

(2)      New Flats at Brighton Marina and the Gasworks – Bridget Fishleigh

Nearly 2,000 new flats will be built at Brighton Marina and the Gasworks site over the next few years. I know that there is no master plan for transport for this area, but we will need new roads, flyovers, bridges, tunnels, pavements, cycle paths and bus lanes to transport people into, around and out of the area.


                 Please would you tell me what the process and timescales are for planning, financing and building these?

(3)      Section 106 monies – Bridget Fishleigh

Do you agree that ward councillors should be involved in the allocation of Section 106 monies and, if so, would you please put a process in place to make sure we are consulted before the legal agreements are finalised by which time it’s too late?
