18/10/2018 - Recommissioning of Domestic Abuse Support Service for Herefordshire ref: 5394    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

 

 

To approve the approach to recommissioning of a domestic abuse support service and the outline of a new Domestic Abuse Strategy for Herefordshire.

The commissioned domestic abuse support service provided by West Mercia Women's Aid is due to conclude in March 2019. This report details the intention to commission a redesigned domestic abuse service from April 2019 and provides an outline of the revised domestic abuse strategy for Herefordshire.

A shared strategic vision and set of priorities across agencies is required to tackle the root causes and consequences of domestic abuse, which is a complex, pan-organisational challenge. Within this, specialist services for victims and their children who seek support is vital to minimise harm and maximise positive outcomes, focussed on safety, building resilience and empowerment. A commissioned service is required which prevents the needs of victims and their children from escalating. The service will provide a single point of contact and access to experienced professionals who understand the risks and challenges faced by victims, assisting them to locate the right services and information to meet their needs.

Prevention, early intervention and co-ordination of support is key to prevent the risk and level of need from escalating and ultimately costing more to organisations across the system.

Decision published: 18/10/2018

Effective from: 25/10/2018

That:

11/10/2018 - Consideration of controls to restrict parking on grass verges and pathways ref: 5376    Recommendations Approved

On 13 July 2018 the council resolved that: the executive be asked to consider putting in place suitable controls to restrict parking on grass verges and pathways, including the introduction of by-laws.

 

The purpose of this report is to determine the executive’s response to the above resolution.

 

Having considered the provision afforded by relevant legislation:

·       If the matter to be addressed relates to regular and sustained careless parking at particular locations, then the most appropriate means of control will be through the introduction of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO), which can be enforced by the Council’s Civil Enforcement officers.

·       If the matter relates to occasional damage by a particular individual, or individuals, at a particular location, then the use of the provisions in the Highways Act 1980 may be the most appropriate means of control.

·       Given the existence of the above provisions in law, it is considered unlikely that the Secretary of State will decide to take forward any application for a bylaw to address an issue with parking on verges and footways unless it can be demonstrated that such matters cannot be addressed through TROs or the existing provisions under the Highways Act 1980 or any other relevant legislation.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet member transport and regulatory services

Decision published: 11/10/2018

Effective from: 18/10/2018

Decision:

That:  all members be advised of the existing provisions for the introduction of Traffic Regulation Orders for the control of parking at particular locations, which provide the most efficient and lawful means by which any sustained parking issue associated with careless parking can be considered.
