Declaration of any interests

TO RECEIVE any declarations for the following in so far as they relate to the business for the meeting:-

 

  1. Disclosable Pecuniary Interests
  2. Other Significant Interests (what were previously thought of as non-pecuniary Prejudicial interests)
  3. Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests

 

Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests not required to be disclosed as DPI’s or OSI’s, ie announcements made for transparency reasons alone, such as:

·        Membership of outside bodies that have made representations on agenda items, or

·        Where a Councillor knows a person involved, but does not have a close association with that person, or

·        Where an item would affect the well-being of a Member, relative, close associate, employer, etc but not his/her financial position.

 

[Note: an effect on the financial position of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc; OR an application made by a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc, would both probably constitute either an OSI or in some cases a DPI].

Notice of Motion: Redefining affordable housing pdf icon PDF 100 KB

TO CONSIDER the motion below along with the report of the Deputy Chief Executive

 

Proposed by Councillor Gower

Seconded by Councillor Butcher

 

“Canterbury City Council commits to an urgent review of the definition of ‘affordable’, as used by them in the context of housing and rents, to be completed within the next three months.

 

Its new definition (post review) will reflect with greater clarity the real incomes and circumstances of citizens living and working in our authority. Consideration will be given to comparing disposable incomes (rather than mean incomes), additionally median house prices when describing the affordability of property to buy, and setting ‘affordable rents’ as a proportion of median household income rather than market rates.

 

The revised definition will be adopted by Canterbury City Council, embedded in existing policy and used in the new Corporate Plan and refresh of the Local Plan.”
