24/10/2019 - Annual review of earmarked reserves ref: 6389    Recommendations Approved

To note and approve the annual earmarked reserves review.

Earmarked reserves are established to hold revenue balances to fund future year commitments over and above the annual budget requirement. They generally arise where funding exceeds expenditure, usually due to the timing of receipts being ahead of incurring expenditure. As a matter of good practice a review is undertaken each year to establish the continued need for reserves held for earmarked purposes to ensure resources can be used to best effect whilst maintaining a prudent level of reserves to meet future anticipated commitments.

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision published: 24/10/2019

Effective from: 31/10/2019

Decision:

That

 

The following changes be made to the reserve balances held, as shown in appendix 1:

 

i.              Establish a new earmarked reserve of £150k, utilising funds held in the financial resilience reserve, to fund the investigation of different models of delivering council housing; and

 

ii.            Establish a new ear marked reserve of £550k, utilising funds held in the financial resilience reserve, to fund the initial implementation in 2019/20 of an enhanced edge of care service for young people and support a high quality children’s social care service.

26/09/2019 - Travellers Sites Development Plan Document ref: 6300    Recommend Forward to Council

 

To recommend to council that the Herefordshire travellers’ sites development plan document (DPD) 2018 -2031 is adopted. 

The Government’s guidance Planning policy for Traveller Sites requires local planning authorities to make provision for traveller sites within their local plans. The adopted core strategy includes a commitment for the council to do so through a travellers sites DPD.  This DPD has been prepared in accordance with the core strategy and government guidance.  It has been subject to independent examination by a government appointed inspector.  The inspector has concluded that it can provide an acceptable supply of pitches over the next five years and with the main modifications meets the government’s test of soundness. 

The adoption of the DPD supports the objectives of the Council’s Equality Policy adopted in 2017 as outlined in paragraph 15 below. 

Authority for making any further additional modifications could be delegated to the relevant cabinet member; as the modifications covered by this delegation would not affect the basis of the DPD.  In exercising such delegated authority the officer is required to consult with the cabinet member for infrastructure and transport.  Therefore the proposed delegation provides the most efficient way of maintaining a clear and consistent set of development plan documentation.

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision published: 26/09/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

That:

(a)        the Herefordshire Travellers sites Development Plan Document  (DPD) 2018-2031 (appendix 4 and at https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/info/200185/local_plan/796/travellers_sites_document_examination/7), incorporating the Planning Inspector’s recommended main modifications (appendix 2) and the schedules of additional modifications (appendix 3) be recommended to Council for adoption; and

(b)       it be recommended to Council that delegated authority be given to the programme director growth to make any further minor modifications, (e.g. typographical) to ensure consistency with other development plan documentation.

28/06/2019 - South Wye Transport Package – Southern Link Road – initial site works ref: 6101    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Director of Economy and Place

Decision published: 08/07/2019

Effective from: 28/06/2019

Decision:

The South Wye Transport Package, which includes the southern link road, aims to promote economic development by enabling easier access to the Hereford Enterprise Zone, reduce traffic issues experienced by local residents and promote walking and cycling as an alternative to driving in the south wye area. The scheme forms part of the councils Local Plan Core Strategy, Local Transport Plan, Economic Masterplan and Corporate Plan.

In December 2014 cabinet selected a preferred route for the SLR and authorised the development of the scheme for planning. A planning application for the scheme was submitted in May 2015 and planning permission was granted on 18 July 2016. Cabinet authorised making of the CPO & SRO in October 2017 and these orders were made in March 2018. A Public Inquiry into these orders was held in October / November 2018 and these orders were confirmed in March 2019 by the Secretary of State for Transport.

In order to protect the council’s planning consent it is necessary to commence implementation of minor works to secure the planning permission before 18 July 2019. These works comprise fencing, topsoiling, excavation and placing of subbase material as detailed on the plan appended to this record of officer decision. The scope of works have been agreed with the Local Planning Authority as sufficient to enact the planning permission for the scheme.

The above works are expected to cost £60,000 and would be commissioned through the public realm contract and funded from the 2019/20 Local Transport Plan allocation. This expenditure would be funded through a virement from LTP grant in accordance with financial procedure rules.

Preserving the planning consent ensures that options remain open to the Council pending further consideration of the overall transport package. Those options would be to continue with progression of the scheme, pause and review the scheme, or cancel it.
