Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Update on progress of Tranche 1 Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme schemes and retrospective approval of the indicative schedule of schemes in the Tranche 2 application to the fund.  This programme aims to introduce at pace temporary and experimental active travel measures that subject to successful trials could be made permanent to lock in the potential active travel benefits (shift to active travel by the public) as result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Decision:

RESOLVED that Cabinet:-

(a)          note the excellent progress to date regarding the delivery of the Tranche 1 Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme; and

(b)          subject to a successful application for Emergency Active Travel Fund Tranche 2 bid approves the delegation of decision making regarding the progression of the indicative Tranche 2 Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme to the Director of Growth & Infrastructure in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Transport and Infrastructure and following consultation between the Portfolio Holder and ward councillors and adjacent ward councillors at the earliest possible opportunity.

Voting: Unanimous

Portfolio Holder: Transport and Infrastructure

Reason

To enable expedient delivery of the indicative programme in the event that the Tranche 2 application is successful.

Minutes:

The Portfolio Holder for Transport and Infrastructure presented a report, a copy of which had been circulated to each Member and a copy of which appears as Appendix 'D' to these Minutes in the Minute Book.

Cabinet were updated on the progress of Tranche 1 Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme schemes and were requested to approve the delegation of decision making regarding the progression of the indicative Tranche 2 Emergency Active Travel Fund Programme to the Director of Growth and Infrastructure in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Transport and Infrastructure subject to the application for Emergency Active Travel Fund Tranche 2 being successful.

In relation to this Members were advised that the programme aimed to introduce at pace temporary and experimental active travel measures that subject to trials could be made permanent to lock in the potential active travel benefits (shift to active travel by the public) as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In presenting the report the Portfolio Holder advised that whilst the recommendations as set out in the report were accurate as they do not seek any retrospective approvals, that Cabinet should note for clarity that there was a drafting error within the executive summary of the report which talked about Cabinet confirming retrospective approval for the submission. In relation to this the Cabinet were advised that they were not being asked to confirm retrospective approval for the submission, and that the submission had been put in and had been signed off by the Finance Officer for the Council and so this reference was incorrect. The Portfolio Holder advised however that recommendations were however correctly worded.

The Portfolio Holder advised that the government scheme had been implemented to try and address changes to the way in which people were using public transport in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, and to encourage and support people to be able to walk and cycle safely. In addition the Portfolio Holder advised that the government scheme had tight timescales with schemes having to be implemented within 12 weeks and as such this had prevented consultation, however the Portfolio Holder stressed that these schemes would be reviewed and the measures in place were temporary and removable. In addition Cabinet were advised that some schemes had been withdrawn as the schemes which had been identified when in full lockdown would no longer have the benefit as lockdown has become more relaxed. Further to this Members were advised that the government had changed the requirements in relation to Tranche 2, and that the timescales were no longer as restrictive and enabled greater and fuller consultation to take place should the application for Tranche 2 funding be successful.

The Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Board addressed Cabinet stressing the frustration by the Board that ward councillors weren’t properly consulted, and advising that at their recent meeting the Board had had a long and robust discussion in relation to this item and had resolved to make the following recommendation to Cabinet in respect of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 224.

Waste Services Policies pdf icon PDF 418 KB

Since the formation of BCP Council in April 2019 it has been known that within waste services, there are several operating procedures that need to be aligned between the three legacy councils.

Prior to developing our own waste strategy, there are several primarily operational decisions that need to be made as carrying on as we are is becoming increasingly difficult.

By addressing and aligning differences in service such as bin sizes and colours, charges for bins, collections of other recyclables and subsidies for home composting and real nappies, efficiencies can be made operationally, and clearer communication messages given to residents across BCP Council.

Additional documents:

Decision:

RESOLVED that:-

(a)       Bin sizes and colours

(i)   Recycling Cabinet approves the replacement of all current recycling bins, as and when they break, with 240 litre black bins with blue lids.

(ii)   Refuse Cabinet approves the replacement of 140 litre bins in Bournemouth and Christchurch with 180 litre as and when they break.

(iii)    Garden waste

- Cabinet approves the replacement of all 140 litre bins in Bournemouth with 240 litre bins (black bin with green lid) and a borrowing of £380k to be repaid over the expected life of a bin.

-  Cabinet approves the replacement of all garden waste bins which need replacing in Poole and Christchurch when damaged with 240 litre black bins with green lids.

-  Cabinet approves the garden waste price for the 2021 service at £49 per bin, which is an above inflation increase in charge to cover the borrowing cost and allow for the Bournemouth bins to be replaced with 240 litre bins.

(iv)   Food Waste

Cabinet defers any decision about the possibility of introducing a food waste service in Poole until further guidance and information is given by central government.

(b)       Charges for bins/bags

- Cabinet approves the harmonisation of charges across the three areas based on the current prices in Bournemouth. If 180 litre refuse bins are agreed as standard, this price would increase to £45. If 240 litre garden waste bins are agreed as standard, this price would increase to £55

- Cabinet approves the removal of the provision of free food waste liners in Bournemouth and the use of the savings of £20,000 for waste and recycling education

- Cabinet approves only permitting requests for additional recycling bins for medical or larger families’ needs

- Cabinet approves the introduction of a charge for properties with bags, which are not suitable for bins, based on the projected life of a wheeled bin, which would be a cost of £12.50 per year (52 bags)

- Cabinet approves the removal of the right to request additional refuse bags for households with one or more children in nappies in Christchurch

- Cabinet approves that those in receipt of certain income based benefits may be able to have a replacement bin free of charge. The qualifying benefits are:

o Council Tax Benefit (not Discount)

o Housing Benefit

o Income Support.

- Cabinet approves that where bins are lost during collection or damaged through the collection process officers will use their discretion and the replacement bin may be provided free of charge.

(c)      Side waste Cabinet approves the cessation of side waste collection in Bournemouth and Christchurch to allow rationalisation of rounds to increase efficiencies.

(d)    WEEE collections Cabinet approves the cessation of WEEE collections in Bournemouth once the recycling collection service is brought back in-house in October 2020.

(f)        Home compost bin subsidy Cabinet approves the introduction of the subsidy in Bournemouth and Christchurch at a cost of approximately £5,000 per year.

(g)       Real nappy incentive scheme Cabinet  ...  view the full decision text for item 226.

Minutes:

The Portfolio Holder for Transport and Infrastructure presented a report, a copy of which had been circulated to each Member and a copy of which appears as Appendix 'F' to these Minutes in the Minute Book.

In presenting the report the Portfolio Holder advised Cabinet that since the formation of BCP Council in April 2019 it has been known that within waste services there are several operating procedures that need to be aligned between the three legacy councils.

Further to this Cabinet were informed that prior to developing our own waste strategy there are several primarily operational decisions that need to be made, as carrying on as we are is becoming increasingly difficult.

In relation to this Cabinet were advised that by addressing and aligning differences in service such as bin sizes and colours, charges for bins, collections of other recyclables and subsides for home composting and real nappies, efficiencies can be made operationally, and clearer communication messages given to residents across BCP Council.

In addition the Portfolio Holder made reference to a recently held virtual briefing which many councillors had attended and which highlighted the proposed decisions.

Upon proposing the recommendations the Portfolio Holder requested an additional bullet point be included under recommendation (b) to read:

“Cabinet approves that where bins are lost during collection or damaged through the collection process officers will use their discretion and the replacement bin may be provided free of charge”

The Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Board addressed Cabinet advising that at their recent meeting the Board resolved to make the following recommendation to Cabinet in respect of this item:

The Overview and Scrutiny Board recommends to Cabinet that residents should not be charged for replacement of, or repairs to waste containers in the event that they have been broken or have gone missing through no fault of their own unless the container is owned outright by the resident.

In addition the Chairman of the Board advised the Cabinet of the following general comment:

There were differing views from Board Members in relation to the ownership of bins, replacement costs, cost of service for garden waste collections and bin sizes. The importance of taking these matters into consideration before a decision is made was raised.

The Vice Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Board addressed Cabinet and advised that the additional recommendation was welcomed. In addition the Vice-Chairman of the Board advised that the Board had raised some concerns with regards to the green bin price increase.

Comprehensive discussion took place on the item with Cabinet Members speaking in support of the report and thanking officers for their work in beginning to align the services, further thanks were expressed to officers and the Portfolio Holder for the recent member briefing which was felt to have been really useful. In addition Cabinet highlighted the importance of investing in the education and information for residents.

The Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Board addressed Cabinet advising that at their recent meeting the Board resolved to make the following recommendation to Cabinet in respect of this item:

The Overview and Scrutiny Board recommends to Cabinet that no changes should be made to the existing Poole Town Centre and Holes Bay PSPO and that its existing clauses (a-g) be included as part of the BCP wide Public Spaces Protection Order consultation.

In presenting the recommendation the Chairman of the Board stressed that it wasn’t the intention to fine the homeless or rough sleepers.

The Vice-Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Board addressed Cabinet highlighting that the PSPO was fundamentally to deal with anti-social behaviour, and that no one wanted to issue fines to vulnerable people. In addition the Vice-Chairman of the Board advised that people had indicated that they did feel safer and that it had worked in Poole while in operation.

Councillor Farquhar addressed the Cabinet on behalf of the Labour Group, reading out a statement supporting the recommendations contained within the Cabinet paper. A copy of Councillor Farquhars statement has been published on the Councils website.

Comprehensive discussion took place on the paper with Cabinet stressing the importance of officers working with partner groups in order to help the homeless and those sleeping rough. In addition Cabinet highlighted that they did not support the recommendation from the Overview and Scrutiny Board.

RESOLVED that:-

(a)          Cabinet approve the variation of the Poole Town Centre and Holes Bay PSPO as outlined at paragraph 5 of the report;

Disposal of Broadwaters site, Wick Lane. Bournemouth (change in sale price)

The site of Broadwaters, a former care home, was declared surplus and was marketed for sale in Spring 2019.
