Minutes:

1.  It was moved by County Councillor Frank De Molfetta and seconded by County Councillor David O'Toole that:

 

Since 28 June 2018 Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service and its partners have been dealing with a major wildfire incident at Winter Hill.

 

Many partners have been, and continue to be, involved in fantastic work in extreme weather and difficult conditions to protect the safety of residents, animals and wildlife.  These include officers, firefighters, support staff, the County Council's Fleet Maintenance Service, partners and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to contain the fire thereby protecting the infrastructure on the top of the hill and threats to life and property while maintaining operational fire cover across Lancashire. The generosity and support of members of the public who have sent messages of support and given generous donations of supplies and machinery is also noted.

 

Lancashire County Council therefore asks the Interim Chief Executive and Director of Resources to liaise with the Chief Fire Officer to ensure the Council's gratitude is expressed to all Partners to thank them for their support.

 

On being put to the vote the motion was CARRIED and it was:

 

Resolved: - That:

2.  It was moved by County Councillor Charles Edwards and seconded by County Councillor Stuart Morris that:

 

In Lancashire approximately 67% of the adult population are living with excess weight. High levels of excess weight are also prevalent amongst the children of Lancashire, with the highest prevalence figures being found in the most deprived wards.

 

Obesity is a complex issue and requires a multifaceted approach. One element of this approach is working together to limit the over proliferation of hot food takeaways.

 

Between 2012 and 2016 every district in Lancashire saw increases in the numbers of fast food outlets, and Lancashire as a whole has seen an increase of 20%. In Lancashire 48.7% of fast food outlets fall within wards that sit in the 20% most deprived nationally.
