Declaration of Interests by Councillors or Officers

TO RECEIVE any declarations for the following in so far as they relate to the business for the meeting:-

 

  1. Disclosable Pecuniary Interests
  2. Other Significant Interests (what were previously thought of as non-pecuniary Prejudicial interests)
  3. Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests i.e. relevant memberships

 

Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests not required to be disclosed as DPI’s or OSI’s, ie announcements made for transparency reasons alone, such as:

·       Membership of outside bodies that have made representations on agenda items, or

·       Where a Councillor knows a person involved, but does not have a close association with that person, or

·       Where an item would affect the well-being of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc but not his/her financial position.

 

[Note: an effect on the financial position of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc; OR an application made by a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc, would both probably constitute either an OSI or in some cases a DPI].

Minutes:

Councillors S Cook, Baldock and Dixey each made a statement that any declarations of interests by Councillors of their respective groups that were recorded in the minutes for this meeting were deemed to be declared again by any of those Councillors present at this meeting. Councillor Hirst made a statement that any declarations of interests made by him that were recorded in the minutes for this meeting were deemed to be declared again.

Petitions or Questions

Any member of the public may present a petition or put a question provided that it is supported by not less than 15 signatories and has given notice to the Democratic Services not later than 12.30pm on Wednesday 9 January 2019.

______________________________________________________________

 

A member of the public, Anna Peckham, has given notice that she will present a petition asking the council to abandon plans for a multi-storey car park at Station Road West.

 

The number of people signing the petition has not reached the level that would automatically trigger a debate at Council. This petition therefore falls under the normal petition rules and it would normally be referred to the appropriate Committee for debate.

 

However, the Lord Mayor has decided to allow debate at Council on the very unusual basis that, during the time that would be taken to refer the petition to a Committee, and then potentially back to full Council, the Council may become contractually committed to the project.

 

The Chief Executive will give guidance as to how the debate should be managed.

 

 

The Chief Executive will report verbally any notifications received within the prescribed time limit regarding any petitions or questions for the meeting.

 

Other than in accordance with the Council’s Petition Scheme no debate shall take place upon any matter put before the council by way of petition.

 

No debate shall take place upon any matter put before the council by way of question except at the discretion of the Lord Mayor, when the Leader or Chair of an appropriate committee may respond. The Leader or the Chair may agree to a written response being sent on behalf of the council.

 

The Lord Mayor, at his discretion, may determine the order in which the petitions and / or questions are taken.

 

It is the usual practice to refer any petitions or questions to the relevant decision-making body or if there is a related item on the agenda they will be considered at the meeting.

 

Under the Council’s Petition Scheme -

 

Duplicate Petitions will not be accepted (Where more than one petition is received in time for a particular meeting, each supporting the same outcome on one matter, each petition organiser will be treated as an independent organiser, but only the petition organiser of the first petition will be invited to address the relevant meeting).

 

Repeat Petitions will not be accepted (Where a petition will not normally be considered where they are received within six months of another petition being considered by the authority on the same matter).

 

Minutes:

The Lord Mayor announced that there were two petitions which, due to exceptional circumstances, would be dealt with at the meeting.  He also explained that there was a third petition which had been received.

 

The Lord Mayor proposed and it was agreed by general assent that the time allowed for each petition be extended to 20 minutes.

 

1.    Anna Peckham presented her petition calling for council to abandon plans for a multi-storey car park at Station Road West.

 

It was proposed by Councillor S Cook and seconded by Councillor Todd that the petition be rejected. Following a debate the proposal was put to a vote and it was RESOLVED accordingly.

 

A record of the voting was taken as follows:

 

For: Councillors A Baker, B Baker, N Baker, Clark, S Cook, Doyle, Fitter-Harding, Glover, Hirst, Howes, R Jones, Samper, Sonnex, I Stockley, J Stockley, A Taylor, D Thomas, I Thomas, R Thomas, Walker, Waters and Westgate  (23)

Abstaining: Councillor Spooner (1)

 

2.    Sue Langdown presented her petition requesting that the council delay the awarding of the contract for the building of the multi-storey car park to enable a review of the project to take place.

 

It was proposed by Councillor Fitter-Harding and seconded by Councillor R Thomas that the council did not delay, that the contract be entered into, and the construction should proceed as planned.

 

Following a debate the proposal was put to a vote and it was RESOLVED accordingly.

 

A record of the voting was taken as follows:

For: Councillors A Baker, B Baker, N Baker, Clark, S Cook, Doyle, Fitter-Harding, Glover, Hirst, Howes, R Jones, Samper, Sonnex, I Stockley, J Stockley, A Taylor, D Thomas, I Thomas, R Thomas, Walker and Waters (22)

3.    Pascal Sleigh presented a petition which asked the Council to support the notice of motion regarding the reduction of carbon emissions.

Councillors Questions

To answer any questions from Councillors under Rule 10 of the Council Procedure Rules. Details of any questions received will be reported at the meeting.

 

(Note: There is a time limit of one minute for asking a question and three minutes for its answer, with supplementary questions being allowed, with a total of 30 minutes for all questions).

Minutes:

Question 1. From Councillor Baldock:

 

“During late November much valued mature trees in Northgate Ward were felled without informing residents of the adjoining flats or indeed local Councillors, causing considerable upset and anxiety.  I have since been informed by officers that it is no longer considered necessary or appropriate to inform or consult residents of any intended tree felling affecting the public amenity space adjoining their homes.  Does the leader of this Council agree that this, I must assume, Council wide policy is acceptable.”

 

Reply by Councillor S Cook:

 

Due to the volume of tree works across the district the council does not inform the local residents nor councillors of pending jobs. For example in December 2018 the Council had 321 tree works ordered. Work is carried out on trees where planned maintenance is advisable or trees are no longer safe. The Council has a comprehensive inspection regime which helps to inform the tree works required.

 

With respect to the case in November, two trees were felled as a result of an inspection prior to pruning work as they were found to be diseased. In addition local residents had complained that the trees were blocking light from their properties and requested work be considered.

 

Supplementary question by Councillor Baldock:

 

“Is it not reasonable to inform residents prior to the felling of trees.

 

Reply by Councillor S Cook:

 

The public expected the Council to undertake general maintenance, including on trees, particularly when it was a matter of public safety. When trees needed to be cut on safety grounds and there was no choice it was not appropriate to consult since there was no choice for the Council but to take the planned course of action.

 

In the future it might be possible to inform ward councillors, if necessary after the event to allow the tree to be removed as quickly as appropriate, when trees were being removed unexpectedly.

 

Where mass felling of healthy trees was being contemplated then the public were consulted.

 

Question 2 - from Councillor Fisher:

 

“Did the Council consider the impact of suspension of garden waste collection until March on older and less mobile residents?  Complaints to the Labour Group have highlighted the winter clear-up of gardens and difficulty many have in just putting garden waste into a car and taking it to the tip.”

 

Reply by Councillor N Baker:

 

These proposed changes to green waste collections were reported to Community Committee on 24 January 2018 as part of a wider package of proposals. The changes were noted by the Committee.

 

In considering the short-term suspension of the green waste collections, the needs of all those residents who use this particular service were considered and balanced against the need to ensure the general, dry-recycling and food waste collection services received by all residents were effectively delivered.

 

The view was taken that during the eight week period, as there was a large drop in usage at that time, residents could take garden waste to a local  ...  view the full minutes text for item
