21.     Notices of Motion

 

(a)  from Councillor Peter Henderson, seconded by Councillor Julie Dettbarn:-

 

          "The Council is requested to write to the Scottish and UK Governments to seek the introduction of assistance to rural homeowners in regards to the Cost of Energy crisis, in particular the lack of alternative heating and energy supply in rural areas.

 

          As many of you know, people living in rural areas are significantly more likely to be living in fuel poverty, with 42% of households in 'remote' rural homes classed as fuel poor or in extreme fuel poverty.  This compares to 24.6% across Scotland as a whole.  These figures are from 2019 and the true scale of fuel poverty is now believed to be significantly higher, with research showing as many of 57% of people could be in fuel poverty.  Rural communities also face higher living costs, with evidence suggesting that living in remote rural Scotland typically adds 15-30% to a household budget.

 

          Rural households face higher heating costs as many depend on expensive oil heating systems, with high and fluctuating upfront fuel costs.  Oil heating is not regulated by Ofgem, which means people with oil heating systems are not protected by the Energy Price Guarantee.  And this affects a large proportion of South Ayrshire homes and families.  In the last 12 months the cost of heating oil has doubled with prices rising from around 64p per litre to £1.20 per litre.

 

          The need to support schemes for new collective purchase and community asset ownership models to pay for the improvements, enhanced grants and loans to cover additional insulation and running costs and a support service for rural businesses to help them build the skills needed to decarbonise rural heating."

(b)     from Councillor Philip Saxton, seconded by Councillor Brian McGinley

                   "I am asking the Council to cancel the debt for School meals this was accumulated by parents from August till the present day, the amount is £6,343.69.

I would request this comes from the Councils uncommitted reserves."
