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 R Thomas, 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.

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:

There were two petitions for the meeting the Council was asked to consider them during the consideration of the reference to Council from the Policy and Resources Committee in regards to the Wincheap Park and Ride item.

 

The first petition was from Steven Peckham and sought a review of the park and ride provision with a view to reassessing the numbers to be provided at the Wincheap facility.

 

The second petition was from Richard Norman and asked the council to consider alternative sites for the proposed Wincheap park and ride provision and that an environmental impact assessment be carried out on any proposed site.

Councillors' questions

To answer any questions from Councillors under Rule 10 of the Council Procedure Rules.

 

(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).

 

The following questions had been received at the time of agenda publication.

 

Question 1 from Councillor Sole

 

“An increasing numbers of lorries are parking up overnight in unofficial lay-bys and roadsides. They are damaging the roads and verges, blocking rights of way and leaving litter.

 

Please may I have an update on the proposals with Swale Borough Council for the construction of a lorry park that would provide much needed facilities for drivers and aid enforcement so that local residents might know how much longer they will have put up with this?”

 

Question 2 from Councillor Sole

 

“At the last Council meeting on 18 July I asked the leader of the council what the City Council was doing to help find a new home for Canterbury City Football Club that was in a sustainable location and not in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 

I was happy to take at face value his response, and I quote, “I have met with the chairman of the football club and we have talked about their plans and aspirations. There is much commercial and sensitive information that I cannot bring forward now but he confirmed that he is happy with the discussions that he has had.”

 

In early August, a press release was issued, by the City Council, quoting the football club chairman as saying “we are grateful for the Council’s support as we continue to work with Quinn Estates on a revised planning proposal for Highland Court.”

 

I want to see a thriving and successful football club in the city, but in the right location. A council that has now committed to take action on a climate emergency by reducing CO2 emissions, should be seeking to locate the club in an area where it is easily accessible from the main population centre, reducing private vehicle journeys, and not on a farm in the middle of the countryside.

 

I subsequently questioned Cllr Thomas, who incidentally was the only councillor not to vote against the previous planning application to bring the club to Highland Court in Bekesbourne, on whether the city council, in light of this press release, was still looking at alternative locations.

 

He replied, “The question that will get asked is why are we doing all this work now to find another solution when they have a potential solution. Especially on the backdrop of EKH, bins, £5m savings target etc”

 

Councillor Thomas also commented that “Sport and leisure is a permitted activity in the AONB and that it is the football clubs first choice for their ground”.

 

Not only is it the club’s first choice, but after years of inaction by the council it is their only choice, but that doesn’t make it the right  ...  view the full agenda text for item

Minutes:

Question one from Councillor Edwards

 

“On October 11th, the Government announced an immediate rise in the Public Works Loans (PWL) interest rate, in effect more than doubling it.

 

Can the Leader set out the implications of this increase for all current and proposed borrowing from the PWL Board, providing specific detail on the impact on the borrowing required for the new Council offices scheme and any as yet unsecured (that is, not yet finalised) PWLB funding for the Station Road West car park, Whitefriars centre and Parham Road and Kingsmead housing developments. 

 

Further, can the Leader set out any impacts of this increase on the expected payback periods for existing projects where loans have not yet been taken out?”

 

Response by the Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee

 

It will be worked through in the budget process and the impact will be reported in the budget consultation report for November Policy and Resources Committee meeting.

 

---

 

Question two from Councillor Dawkins

 

On the 3rd of August, central government announced £20m of funding to support local authorities in preparing for Brexit. Canterbury City Council was allocated £70,000.

 

Could the council please explain what the allocated funds are to be spent on, what risks have been identified in a no-deal Brexit scenario and by what group/committee within the council these have been shared and discussed?

 

Response by the Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee

 

As assessed by the Kent-wide team that is preparing for a 'no deal exit scenario', Canterbury district has been identified as low risk and should operate under normal conditions. That said, some risks have been identified, mainly around the potential impact of traffic congestion:

 

1. Should there be serious traffic congestion, a town or village may become temporarily cut off and isolated for a time. This would be most likely to affect the more vulnerable people in the area who could experience travel difficulty in getting to shops, receiving home visits, obtaining medicines or attending surgeries and other medical appointments.

 

2. Specifically on freight vehicles, these may seek to avoid the traffic management systems in place and drive on the more minor roads in the area, which may impact upon some of our villages. If traffic congestion builds up on the A299 due to freight diversion, coastal areas to the north may be affected. The council will activate its emergency room should serious problems occur and will be ready to respond, as well as being in direct communication with the countywide service response being coordinated by Kent Police. All teams at the council have worked up Business Continuity Plans to ensure our service remains as close to normal as possible if traffic congestion makes it difficult for staff to get to work.

 

3. Traffic congestion will likely impact on Serco’s ability to collect household waste. To mitigate this, Serco is considering evening and weekend collections. Kent County Council is also considering the use of the Household Waste Recycling Centres in Canterbury and Herne Bay as temporary  ...  view the full minutes text for item

Notice of motion: Digital Services

Proposed by Councillor Eden-Green

Seconded by Councillor Ricketts

 

“Canterbury City Council now expects residents to use digital ordering and payment systems for a range of basic council services.

 

We generally endorse this approach but recognise that some residents do not have smartphones, computers or credit cards. Some also have literacy problems or visual impairment. Thus making digital access mandatory is discriminatory. Furthermore this policy has been introduced by officers and has never been ratified by councillors.

 

We require that basic council services are equally available by non digital means for those requiring them and who are currently denied such access.”

 

(The Notice of Motion relates to a matter which should be referred to the Policy and Resources Committee for consideration with a report by officers.)

Notice of Motion: Redefining affordable housing

Proposed by Councillor Gower

Seconded by Councillor Butcher

 

“Canterbury City Council commits to an urgent review of the definition of ‘affordable’, as used by them in the context of housing and rents, to be completed within the next three months.

 

Its new definition (post review) will reflect with greater clarity the real incomes and circumstances of citizens living and working in our authority. Consideration will be given to comparing disposable incomes (rather than mean incomes), additionally median house prices when describing the affordability of property to buy, and setting ‘affordable rents’ as a proportion of median household income rather than market rates.

 

The revised definition will be adopted by Canterbury City Council, embedded in existing policy and used in the new Corporate Plan and refresh of the Local Plan.”

Notice of Motion: Food Poverty Councillor Champion

Proposed by Councillor Baldock

Seconded by Councillor Edwards

 

“Food Poverty exists whenever the availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or the ability to acquire acceptable food in socially acceptable ways is limited or uncertain.  For many in this district it is principally about affording nutritionally adequate and safe food to make up a healthy diet. This council, mindful of the urgent need locally to tackle hunger and ensure all residents are able to make healthy food choices, endorses the appointment of a Food Poverty Councillor Champion.

 

 The Food Poverty Councillor Champion will provide leadership to improve nutrition and encourage better food choices for those in Food Poverty.  Additionally the elimination of hunger in this district must be a key objective for them, utilising engagement with local voluntary groups such as the Canterbury Foodbank and focusing appropriate Canterbury City Councils resources in support of that humanitarian outcome.”
