22/02/2018 - Response to motion at full council 13 October 2017 - Street Cleaning and Litter ref: 5015    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

To respond to the motion passed by full Council on 13 October 2017 which resolved that the Executive is asked to write on behalf of Herefordshire Council to government making the following points:

1.           The cuts in local authority funding have impacted our ability to deliver non statutory services.  The rural sparsity of Herefordshire presents a particular challenge to our street cleaning programme and verge litter clearing, which are non-statutory services.

 

2.           The increasing volume of litter being dropped in the county on our streets and both major and minor roads is unsightly and dangerous.  We recognise the tremendous efforts made by local people who go on litter picks or who just pick up litter when they see it.  However, it is neither practical nor safe to rely on local volunteers to litter pick on busy highways.

 

3.           Therefore, we raise this issue with the suggestion that sufficient finances be made available to local authorities to attend to the problem.  Such money should be raised from a tax on fast food (take away) outlets, confectionary and crisp manufacturers, alcohol and soft drink companies and tobacco companies since these are the main contributors to the problem.  It will not be a pasty tax but a litter tax (although some benefit to health may accrue).

 

4.           Defra should also be encouraged to run a campaign to stop the careless disposal of but encourage the recycling of silage wrappers, fertiliser bags, seed bags, feed sacks, baling twine and mineral buckets.

 

5.           Furthermore, the Executive is asked to consider whether further steps can be taken to support parish councils, local community groups and individuals who wish to deal with this problem in their area.   The Executive is also asked to look into what can be done to encourage local business to engage with this challenge to reduce waste and litter in our lovely county.

This report details the Executive’s response to this motion.

Decision Maker: Cabinet member transport and regulatory services

Decision published: 22/02/2018

Effective from: 01/03/2018

Decision:

That:

(b)   the Cabinet Member for Transport and Regulatory Services writes to the Parliamentary under Secretary of State for the Environment, and the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs, as drafted in appendix 1 to this report.

 

(c)   As part of the development of the public realm services in the 2018/19 Annual Plan, the council teams and Balfour Beatty Living Places consider whether further steps can be taken through the lengthsman scheme and community commissioning model to support parish councils, local community groups and individuals who wish to deal with this problem in their area. 

 

(d)   teams continue to encourage local business to engage with this challenge to reduce litter and waste in our lovely county.

The contract for provision of catering services to the Plough Lane offices was awarded in 2014 to Reyes Catering Co and the mechanism for payment was via a profit share for Herefordshire Council, this has proved cumbersome to manage and the income from this has proved negligible therefore a more simple process for securing income to Herefordshire Council is required.

14/02/2018 - Extension to carers support service ref: 5017    Recommendations Approved

To approve the direct award of a carers support service contract for up to 12 months from 1 April 2018, until a newly designed service can be successfully commissioned.   This will ensure the continuity of services for carers following the withdrawal of the procurement process for the newly designed carers service. The current contract with Herefordshire Carers Support (HCS) is for a fixed term of one year. The existing contract cannot be extended and therefore a direct award is proposed, which will require an exemption from contract procedure rules standing orders.   The service specification for the interim service will be developed as far as possible to align more closely to the priorities in the Joint Carers Strategy.

 

A recent procurement process has demonstrated that the market does not currently have the capacity and willingness to deliver the new type of carers service required.  Therefore a new carers service will not be available to mobilise from 1 April 2018.  Intensive work is underway to engage in depth with the market, NHS and other partners to establish the best way to deliver a service which enables carers and addresses the priorities within the Joint Carers Strategy.
