1 Apologies
2 Declarations of Interest

Members are requested to give notice of any declarations of interest in respect of items of business on the Agenda.

In terms of Standing Order 3.4, a written requisition, signed by nine Members of the Council, has been submitted to call for consideration of the undernoted motions:

"Council recognises the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on our residents and therefore agrees to use £60,000 of unearmarked reserves to scrap all school meal debt in North Ayrshire."

"Council recognises the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on our residents.


Council acknowledges that people on low incomes are the most likely to use pre-payment meters and therefore pay higher energy tariffs than those on direct debits.


Council notes that twenty clients of the Better Off North Ayrshire service, currently being piloted in the Three Towns, had self-disconnected their pre-payment meters as they could not afford a top-up and further notes the concerns of charities such as Citizens Advice Scotland that self-disconnections will increase significantly this winter.


Council therefore agrees to use £150,000 of unearmarked reserves to establish a pre-payment meter support fund to support residents who would otherwise face self-disconnection this winter due to rising costs."

Any other business which the Provost considers to be urgent.
