SUPPLEMENTARY ITEM - Notice of Motion - To consider two Motions submitted by Councillor Mrs. H. Scott, and seconded by Councillor Harker
1. Procedural Motion
Council agrees, because of urgency, to suspend the procedural
requirement of 7 clear working days’ notice (Rule 22 and 106
of the Council Procedure Rules apply) and to allow motion
concerning the relocation of Locomotion No. 1 (as set out below) to
be moved and considered at the Council meeting on 30 January
Locomotion No.1 has been on long-term loan from the National Railway Museum (NRM) which is part of the Science Museum Group. The NRM has now announced that it is planning to relocate Locomotion No. 1 from its Darlington home to Shildon.
Council therefore resolves and agrees that :-
(a) this Council is outraged by the decision of the National Railway Museum (NRM) to seek to relocate Locomotion No 1 from the Head of Steam Museum in Darlington and relocate it to Shildon;
(b) this Council urges the NRM to reconsider its decision; and
(c) this Council will use all and every means available to it to oppose the decision made by the National Railway Museum.
