This council therefore commits to food justice in Medway by:
"Delete everything after '...nationally and internationally, by 2030' and replace with 'In light of the above, this council requests a detailed report from Public Health assessing the extent of this issue within Medway specifically, to be brought before the Medway health and wellbeing board, as the most appropriate forum for any action as appropriate, for considering and recommending any further in depth discussion at the earliest opportunity.'"
On being put to the vote, the amendment was carried and became the substantive motion.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020.
