Motion referred to Policy and Resources Committee by Full Council under Council Procedure Rule 11.4

Proposed by Councillor Clark and seconded by Councillor Thornton

 

There is increasing doubt about the environmental and health safety of glyphosate. A recent case related to the use of glyphosate resulted in a fine of £200m+.

 

On this basis it would seem prudent for the Council to cease any further use.

 

This Council therefore resolves:

      i.        To stop with immediate effect all use of glyphosate on its properties including car parks, roads and pavements.

     ii.        Call upon NYCC to not use glyphosate on NYCC properties, roads and pavements.

    iii.        Calls upon all Ryedale Town and Parish Councils to not use glyphosate on their properties, roads and pavements

Minutes:
