7.       Notice of Motion

          (a)     Moved by Councillor Chris Cullen, seconded by Councillor Hugh Hunter:

                   "After over 30 years of success the historical Ayr Holy Fair was dropped from the Council's events programme with no consultation having taken place with elected members or the general public. What was a renowned traditional family event that attracted thousands to the town, has been unceremoniously dropped.

While the longstanding event may have been replaced by the Summer Family Festival, this in no way conveys the history and tradition of the event. Council requests the Chief Executive to reverse the name change and bring back the historic Holy Fair to the Low Green for future years."

          (b)     Moved by Councillor Chris Cullen, seconded by Councillor Duncan Townson:

"Brown bin charge reversal - since the passing of the budget the lack of public support for this taxation has been widespread throughout all local media channels and my own inbox. This motion calls for Council to request that the Chief Executive bring forward one or more replacement saving proposals to Council in October in order to scrap the previously approved brown bin charges savings proposal going forward."

          (c)     Moved by Councillor Chris Cullen, seconded by Councillor William Grant:

"The A77 runs alongside and through 7 out of South Ayrshire's 8 wards. Each of these wards experience different consequences from issues both rural and urban, relating to this Major Arterial Route. Currently there is an A75/A77 Lobbying Action Group which is attended at present by two administration councillors.

This motion calls on Council to adjust the South Ayrshire Council membership in the A75/A77 Lobbying Action Group to allow cross party representation to reflect the concerns of the various wards along the A77 route. This is in addition to Councillors Pollock and Clark who already represent SAC."
