LTP Capital Programme 2021/22 pdf icon PDF 165 KB

At the time of writing this report the Department for Transport (DfT) have yet to confirm exact funding values for 2021/22 and beyond and therefore an assumption has been made that the value will remain at least at the level received in 2020/21.

This Cabinet Report for the 2021/22 Local Transport Plan (LTP) Capital Programme has been developed to:

i)             Seek approval for the proposed utilisation of expected LTP 2021/22 Capital grant allocation of £6,803k (£3,078k of Integrated Transport Block (ITB) funding and £3,725k of Highway Maintenance funding), with a recommended split of £3,358k for ITB and £3,445k for Maintenance based on need.

ii)            Seek approval for the indicative 2022/23 and 2023/24 Highways Maintenance Programmes as set out in Appendix B.

iii)           Seek approval upon receipt of the DfT confirmation letter that through delegated authority the Director of Growth & Infrastructure in consultation with Portfolio Holder’s for Transportation and Environment make required LTP Capital Programme amendment to match confirmed DfT levels.

iv)           Note the utilisation of £147k of s106 developer contributions for the final phase of the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (DLEP): Townside scheme.

v)            Note the allocation of 2021/22 LTP Integrated Transport Block funding (combined total of £530k) as a local contribution towards the SE Dorset City Regions Transforming Cities Fund (TCF) programme.

vi)           Note the £40.88M of funding in 2021/22 for the delivery of the approved Transforming Cities Fund programme.

vii)          Note the award of £1,062k from the Active Travel Fund, with a local contribution of £200k of LTP funding committed as part of the successful bid.

Note the ongoing delivery of over £3M of highway maintenance schemes (via DfT Challenge Fund award).

Children and Young People's Partnership Plan 2021 - 2024 pdf icon PDF 236 KB

The draft BCP Children and Young People’s Plan has been developed by the BCP Children and Young People’s Partnership Board, the successor body to the previous Learning Partnership Board. The difference is to focus on all issues for children, not just education and to a lesser extent, children’s social care.

Having a plan in place is a requirement placed on BCP by the Local Government Reorganisation process so in that sense it is a plan required by Government of us.

The draft Plan sets out the proposed strategic priorities for partnership action to improve outcomes for BCP’s children and young people and to help them achieve their potential. It is consistent with existing BCP policy about improving child outcomes

Central to this is that the Council plays its part in the Partnership to help BCP’s children and young people to be “fulfilled, happy, included, and resilient”.

This report provides a copy of the draft plan at Appendix 1 to the report.

The draft Plan has been subject to public consultation during the month of January 2021.

This Plan, when finalised, will be championed by the multi-agency BCP Children and Young People’s Partnership Board. An action plan will be an integral part of the final document. This will be monitored through the Board.

BCP Council Suicide Prevention Plan pdf icon PDF 162 KB

The National Suicide Prevention Strategy (SP) requires Councils to develop local SP plans.

Across the whole of Dorset between 70 and 80 lives are lost perannum because of suicide and each death impacts people in families, workplaces and communities.

BCP Council has developed a comprehensive and wide-reaching action plan based on the responses to a local consultation. This has been developed with Heads of Service, working together to see how they could contribute to the suicide prevention plan.

The action plan provides information about the national and pan Dorset Strategic direction and then provides local narrative to set the scene for the BCP Council response.

The table in the plan outlines the main objectives and deliverables, set out by each lead area with communication and public health support throughout the plan. Many of the themes cut across Portfolio holder responsibilities, Directorates and teams, so the delivery plan shows contributions to the overall aim of reducing suicides and their impact.

Sale of Christchurch By-Pass Car Park pdf icon PDF 135 KB

It is proposed that the Christchurch By-Pass Car Park is sold to the adjoining owner of the retail outlet, in order to secure the continued occupation of this unit by Waitrose.

The purchase price has taken into consideration the existing use value of the site as a car park. The sale will be subject to clauses that allow the Council to buyback the site should it no longer be required as a car park.

The terms of the disposal have been agreed between the parties and are outlined in the confidential appendix to this report.

Progressing with this disposal will provide a capital receipt that will support the Council’s Transformation Programme.
