Extended licensing will mean better deal for tenants
Next week the Council's City Executive Board (11th Feb 5pm) will be deciding whether to extend licencing in the private rented sector - an idea first promoted by former Chair of the Council's Housing Panel, Green Cllr Sam Hollick.
Greens welcome electric car initiative
After years of lobbying by the Greens, the City and the County are now trying an innovative scheme which has been used effectively in Europe using local lamp posts as the charging points. This will open up electric cars to many more potential users. Cllr David Williams, who drives an all electric Nissan Leaf, says the new scheme will overcome the major barrier of people who park their car on the road not being able to trail a an electrical connection from their home to the car across a pavement. Domestic charging at the moment is limited to those with a driveway in front of their home.
