Appointment of Interim Monitoring Officer pdf icon PDF 67 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Head of Legal and Democratic Services left the Council Chamber for the duration of the item.

 

The Chief Executive submitted a report on appointment of an Interim Monitoring Officer.  He said the Council’s Head of Legal and Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer, Alison Stuart, would be leaving the employ of East Herts Council to take up a position as Head of Legal at the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.  Recruitment was taking place for the post which would be vacated by her departure.  As the Council was required by law to appoint a Monitoring Officer, and as under the legislation, neither the Head of Paid Service nor the Chief Finance Officer could hold such position, it was proposed to appoint Alison Stuart as Interim Monitoring Officer, to provide consistency and resilience, until a permanent appointment was made. 

 

Councillor D Andrews moved, and Councillor L Haysey seconded, a motion that the recommendations as detailed in the report, be approved. 

 

After being put to the meeting and a vote taken, the motion was declared CARRIED.

 

RESOLVED – that Alison Stuart be appointed as the Council’s Interim Monitoring Officer.

Public Questions pdf icon PDF 43 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Bailey Nash-Gardner asked the Executive Member for Environmental Sustainability, “What steps have East Herts Council taken so far in response to the climate change declaration at the last Council meeting on 24 July?”. 

 

Councillor G McAndrew thanked him for his question, and said given the importance of tackling climate change, he welcomed being required to provide an update.  On 24 July 2019, the Council had voted unanimously to make a climate change declaration which committed the Council to a proactive stance on net carbon neutrality and acting as an exemplar of best practice.  Councillor McAndrew set out how the Council would realise this aim in three ways:  by changes directly to its own buildings, through its people and through its services; by its powers to prioritise actions taken by others, under regulation; and by influencing and encouraging others to act.

 

Councillor McAndrew referred to current analysis of the carbon footprint of East Herts, which was 2,800 tonnes of CO2 per year, and said there was much further to go to meet the aspiration to be carbon neutral by 2030.  He outlined measures which had been taken since the Declaration had been made, including enhancing the sustainability specification of the development of the Leisure Centres at Grange Paddocks and Hartham, going beyond building regulation requirements.  The Council was facilitating Officers’ use of electric vehicles; and would move towards swapping its diesel van to electric vans.  The Council was developing an environmental sustainability Supplementary Planning Document, a draft of which would be consulted upon in the New Year.  The Council’s revised taxi emissions policy was having a significant impact, and the Council was in the process of registering the first two electric cars as taxis.  On 25 September the Council had held an E-vehicle roadshow in Bishop’s Stortford.  He reminded all that they could book the Council’s e-pool cars could be booked outside work.  There was more to do, and he would be working to promote BREEAM (the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).  The Council would not be working alone, as he was pleased to announce that the first meeting of the East Herts Environmental Climate Forum would be taking place in Ware on 4 December.  The Forum would bring together local groups, Members and others, and invitations would be issued shortly.  He encouraged all to participate. 

 

Mr Nash-Gardner thanked Councillor G McAndrew for his answer.

 

Jill Goldsmith, on behalf of Bishop’s Stortford Climate Change Group, asked Councillor McAndrew as the Executive Member for Environmental Sustainability, “What has the Council done to examine whether its current District Plan includes the very best measures to help the District become carbon neutral by 2030 and more specifically has it examined whether and to what timescale it could revise the Climate Change chapter in the Plan or agree a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to deliver its commitment in its Climate Change motion?”. 

 

Councillor McAndrew said the Council was committed to addressing climate change, and recognised its role in reducing emissions.  The SPD would  ...  view the full minutes text for item 179.

Members' questions pdf icon PDF 38 KB

To receive any Members' questions.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor N Symonds asked the Executive Member for Planning and Growth the following question:

 

“With all the new developments going up in East Herts are we sticking to 40% social housing and not deviating from it regardless of pressure from the developers who often wriggle and squirm not to fulfil that percentage?”

 

Councillor J Goodeve reminded all Members that the Council did not own its own social housing stock but worked in partnership with registered housing providers to provide a range of affordable housing, including social rents, affordable rents and shared ownership.  On new developments the Council secured nomination rights, and the proposed policy requirement was as follows:  up to 35 percent on sites proposing 11 – 14 additional dwellings; up to 40 percent on sites proposing 15 or over additional dwellings.  There was no requirement for affordable housing provision on new developments where the number of additional dwellings was 10 or less, and lower provision would be permissible where it was shown that the standard percentage would not be viable, or where it would prejudice the need to secure other infrastructure priorities.  Applicants seeking to justify a lower proportion would be required to provide a Financial Viability Assessment as part of a planning application.

 

Councillor Goodeve said that in 2017/18, 182 affordable homes were completed in East Hertfordshire, which represented 29.6% of all completed dwellings in the District.   She said the SPD on affordable housing would shortly be out for consultation, and she encouraged all to participate. 

 

Councillor D Hollebon asked the Executive Member for Wellbeing: 

 

“How do you intend to build on the successes of the Community and Wellbeing Forum?”

 

Councillor E Buckmaster explained the purpose of the Community Wellbeing Forum.  Public engagement had been discussed by the Executive Members recently, and it had been clear that many of the Council's members already worked extremely hard to engage with communities.   Much of this work took place outside the formal meetings of the Council, through organisations and clubs across the District, many of which aimed to support the most vulnerable.  Member Champions had been appointed over the last two years, with roles spanning a range of areas including social isolation, mental health, walking and cycling, arts and culture, and youth.  The Forum would build on these existing links which Members already had in the community, to deliver the Council’s wellbeing and community initiatives.  Important work was being done in health and wellbeing, and making communities stronger, for example, social prescribing.  For example, many older residents had been introduced to activities supporting mental health and resulting in fewer GP surgery visits; and others had participated in the Breathe Easy Support Group.  The Council, both Members and Officers, would work to deliver the aims of the wellbeing strategy and the Forum would enable Member Champions to meet every two months.  Communication about this work was important, to encourage support and engagement.  The Autumn edition of The Link Magazine, which was delivered to every household, included information about the initiatives.  The  ...  view the full minutes text for item 180.

Hertford Theatre Growth and Legacy Scheme pdf icon PDF 97 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Buckmaster submitted a report on the progress of the theatre expansion work and business plan for the Hertford Theatre Growth and Legacy Scheme.  The report requested additional funding of £6.4mn for the delivery of the scheme. 

 

Councillor Buckmaster drew Members’ attention to the detailed explanation for the additional funding as set out in the report, which included for structural reasons replacing the existing building.  Additional funding of £6.4m was sought.  Councillor Buckmaster explained that following analysis of the original costs and additional information arising from a more comprehensive understanding of the design and build requirements, the existing building structure and external market information and influences, a number of revised cost requirements, over and above those captured in the £13.5mn figure for the original design, had been identified.  He said whilst the additional costs of £6.4m were a significant increase on the agreed funding, the business case demonstrated a strong return on investment.  On completion, Hertford Theatre would deliver an operational result of £1,244,372m per year, and after support service costs and the increased capital charges, the Theatre would operate with a surplus and would bring a contribution to the Council of + £110,201 per year.

 

Councillor Buckmaster proposed recommendation (A) in the report, and subject to the consent of his seconder, and the consent of the meeting, said he now proposed an additional recommendation (B), “to provide the range of good value and free activities for vulnerable and hard to reach audiences, and ensures a pricing structure that was reflective of the new and expanded offer and endeavoured to keep price increases to a minimum”. 

 

Councillor G Williamson gave his consent to the alteration of the motion to support the recommendation, as seconder.

 

The Chairman asked for the meeting to signify consent to the alteration, which was given.

 

Councillor Redfern asked a question regarding the ability to use royalties.

 

Rhys Thomas said amended royalty rights were measured against the capacity of the auditorium. 

 

Councillor S Bell sought an explanation regarding the alteration of the motion. 

 

The Democratic Services Manager said the Council's standing orders provided that a Member could alter the wording of his or her motion with the consent of the seconder and the consent of the meeting. 

 

Councillor G Williamson, as seconder, said he supported this project. 

 

Councillor A Curtis said Members should bear in mind the cultural enhancement the project would bring. 

 

Councillor S Bell proposed an amendment to the recommendation.   She said this project sought to provide a valuable community asset, and this development should have the ethos of a project that was delivered ultimately to benefit the residents of Hertford and the surrounding area.  In order to ensure the Council recognised the importance of amateur and not for profit groups within the community and to ensure that the Theatre remained affordable and accessible to those groups following its refurbishment, she proposed that the motion be amended to add the following wording as recommendation (B):  “The higher rates for all amateur and not for profit  ...  view the full minutes text for item 181.

Minutes:

The Head of Legal and Democratic Services submitted a report seeking approval for the revisions to the current polling districts places and stations within the District. 

 

The Head of Legal and Democratic Services drew Members’ attention to a slight amendment regarding a prefix to the code for Buntingford.  She highlighted the main elements of the report, which aimed to “future proof” the register of electors. 

 

Councillor D Snowden proposed a motion to support the recommendations as set out in the report.  Councillor D Andrews seconded the motion. 

 

In response to a question by Councillor D Snowden, the Electoral Services Officer explained the schedules appended to the report were summaries of the new polling scheme.  The new prefixes would be substituted for the former prefixes.  The changes would take effect when the register was published, due to be on 1 December. 

 

In reply to a question from Councillor D Andrews, the Electoral Services Officer said that a typographical error regarding the polling place for Polling District reference JG in the ward of Hertford Rural South would be corrected.

Motions on Notice pdf icon PDF 33 KB

To receive Motions on Notice.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor C Wilson submitted the following motion on notice: 

 

“The Council recognises that there is a need to improve public transport in the District, and laments the decline in availability and use of buses in the area. The relative paucity of public transport negatively affects the air quality in the District, and also contributes to the failure to produce a modal shift. Moreover, it disproportionally disadvantages the more elderly, the disabled, and rural and poorer members of our society.

In some other Local Authority areas, public transport has been greatly improved by setting up an "On-Demand Service" - mainly using an app on people's mobile phones.

This Council therefore requests its Overview and Scrutiny Committee to investigate the possibility of working with Hertfordshire County Council to research the possibility of setting up such an "On-Demand" service in East Herts.”

 

Councillor Wilson said the new technology to support on-demand, responsive public transport, existed and the benefits to residents of this District should be explored.  He outlined the benefits this proposal could bring, in terms of flexibility, reduced journey times and contribution to reduction of car use.  He proposed the motion. 

 

Councillor J Dumont seconded the motion.  

 

Councillor G McAndrew proposed an amendment.  The amendment would remove words and add or substitute other words, as follows:

 

“The Council recognises that there is a need to improve public transport in the District, and laments the decline in availability and use of buses in the area.  The relative paucity of public transport negatively affects the air quality in the District, and also contributes to the failure to produce a and encourage modal shift.   This Council supports local on-demand services such as Hertfordshire County Council’s ‘Dial-a-Ride’ service which plays a vital role in providing sustainable transport for

 Moreover, it disproportionally disadvantages the more elderly, the disabled, and rural and poorer members of our society.

 

“This Council also recognises that local town and parish councils have worked hard to improve local transport options through community transport schemes such as the Sawbo bus, Stortford Shuttle and the Hadham Hopper.

 

“This Council also supports the Community Car Scheme, which is operated by the CVS for Broxbourne and East Herts, has 600 clients and enables thousands of journeys a year.

 

“This Council will therefore continue to work with Hertfordshire County Council and other local stakeholders to improve local public transport and encourage modal shift.

 

“In some other Local Authority areas, public transport has been greatly improved by setting up an "On-Demand Service" - mainly using an app on people's mobile phones.

 

“This Council therefore requests its newly formed Environmental and Climate Change Forum Overview and Scrutiny Committee to investigate the possibility of working with Hertfordshire County Council to research the possibility of setting up such an "On-Demand" service in East Herts.”

 

Councillor G McAndrew said at the meeting of Shaping Stortford that day he had raised the issue of an On-Demand service with Hertford County Councillors. 

 

Councillor D Andrews seconded the motion, and spoke in favour of the amendment.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 200.
