10/10/2019 - Revised Hereford (Rotherwas) Enterprise Zone Local Development Order 2019 ref: 6313    Recommendations Approved

To approve and adopt the revised Hereford (Rotherwas) Enterprise Zone Local Development Order 2019 (Appendix 2), to include additional areas of land to the south and east of the Enterprise Zone and roll forward its operation for a further period. The LDO process has been fundamental to the success of the Hereford Enterprise Zone by providing certainty for investors and is the only incentive now available to investors. Bringing forward a revised LDO indicates the Council’s continuing support for providing employment land within Enterprise Zone.  The process has also enabled the Rotherwas Drainage and Flood Management Strategy to be revisited in the light of Environment Agency advice regarding updated climate change guidance for flood risk reduction.  The benefits of the LDO will outweigh the loss of any fee income and the process has helped to enable an increased rate of industrial development at the enterprise zone. Since it has been in operation over £48m has been invested in those projects with Council receipts from sales totalling almost £3m and developments built or underway generating £21 m of business rates.

10/10/2019 - Short Breaks Capital Grant Scheme ref: 6314    Recommendations Approved

To approve the creation of a short breaks capital grant scheme.

Short breaks provide opportunities for disabled children and young people to have enjoyable experiences away from their primary carers, thus contributing to their social inclusion and personal and social development. They also provide the parents and carers of disabled children with a necessary and valuable break from their caring responsibilities.

 

Feedback from families highlighted that children wanted to access more activities alongside other children, to increase socialisation, and that support currently provided, whilst meeting a number of key outcomes, may limit opportunity for increasing levels of independence for some children. 

 

The grant scheme will ensure maximum benefit for children with disabilities and special educational needs across Herefordshire, approved at the council’s budget meeting on 15 February 2019 as part of the council’s capital strategy. The aim of the scheme is to improve access to universal and targeted activities across Herefordshire for children with special educational needs and disabilities by delivering capital improvements, thus creating greater opportunity for spending time with friends, and developing independence.

 

The maximum capital funding available for this scheme is £118,000, which is non-recurrent. It is intended that all funding will be committed by the end of March 2020. If required, further bidding rounds will be scheduled during 2020 until the budget has been fully allocated.

 

The funding will be used for capital projects that support the provision of regular, inclusive universal and targeted activities to support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Herefordshire.

 

Wide publicity and awareness through existing networks will be undertaken to ensure that eligible organisations are given the opportunity to apply and demonstrate that their project will improve short breaks provision locally, achieve defined outcomes for children and young people, and will be sustainable beyond the grant intervention.  Applications received by the deadline will be assessed by an appraisal panel against the scheme criteria. Post implementation evaluation and reporting requirements will ensure that successful schemes are able to demonstrate that they maximise the benefit for children and young people with disabilities across Herefordshire.  Case studies and other monitoring information will be collated to ensure that the learning and impact from the grant scheme can be captured.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet member children and families

Decision published: 10/10/2019

Effective from: 17/10/2019

Decision:

That:

(a)   A capital Short Breaks Grant Scheme with a non-recurring budget of £118,000 is made available for projects that will increase access to regular, inclusive universal and targeted activities to support children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities in Herefordshire;

(b)  the Director for Children and Families be authorised to determine grant awards inaccordance with the scheme criteria and having regard to the recommendations of the appraisal panel established as set out in appendix 1.

26/09/2019 - Executive Response to the Climate Emergency ref: 6322    For Determination

 

 To approve the cabinet’s response to the climate emergency resolution that was unanimously supported at the meeting of full council on 8 March 2019.

 

To approve the cabinet’s response to the zero carbon citizen’s assembly resolution that was passed by council at the meeting of full council on 12 July 2019.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 26/09/2019 - Cabinet

Decision published: 10/10/2019

Effective from: 26/09/2019

Decision:

The cabinet member environment, economy and skills introduced the report and highlighted three minor corrections as follows:

·         Both resolutions were passed unanimously by Council;

·         The y (upwards) axis of the graph at paragraph 13 of the report was incorrectly labelled and should read carbon dioxide in thousand tonnes;

·         The date of the climate emergency resolution in appendix 1 should read 8 March 2018.

 

In introducing the report, the cabinet member made the following key points:

·         the council recognised the active lobbying by many members of the public, in particular young people, and the strong emotions raised by this subject;

·         the council was prepared to adopt challenging new targets;

·         carbon emissions had already been reduced by over 40% against the 2008/9 baseline;

·         significant reductions in budgets over this period had been challenging but drives for efficiencies and changes in ways of working to reduce costs had also delivered environmental benefits;

·         the council had met its carbon target two years early but this did not mean that work would stop, initiatives both within and outside the council had been continuing since the climate emergency motion was passed in March 2019;

·         it had to be recognised that many homes and businesses in Herefordshire were not cash rich, programmes such as the warm homes programme had enabled investments;

·         every tonne of carbon saved would make a difference, even apparently small actions could have a ripple effect and become a large change;

·         the level of public support had been noted, working together would magnify the impact of council actions;

·         climate change appeared in many sections of the new corporate plan which was currently under consultation;

·         it was recognised that most changes would be neither quick or straightforward, some changes would only be possible as contracts came due for renewal;

·         Herefordshire would work with other councils to lobby for changes to the national framework that prevented the council from doing certain things.

 

In discussion of the item cabinet members noted that:

·         additional detail on planned actions would be provided as soon as possible;

·         the new policy would set out actions for the council and also seek to influence partners;

·         every aspect of the council’s operations would be considered through the lens of the climate emergency;

·         the council would also seek to learn from good practices elsewhere in the country and overseas;

·         this was an issue that cut across cabinet portfolios;

·         the voices of young people and their support for action on climate change had been heard.

 

Group leaders were invited to give the views of their political groups. It was noted that:

·         all groups were supportive of action to tackle climate change;

·         the cost of initiatives would have to be looked at carefully;

·         the commitment of young people was welcomed;

·         working with partners such as parish councils was very important;

·         the use of supplementary planning documents should be explored to work towards targets, the review of the core strategy would need to take account of the agreed response to the climate emergency motion;

·         the Energy from Waste plant was making a transformational contribution;

·         different ways of working would be fundamental, increasing flexible and home working would have an impact on the trips generated by coming and going of staff.

 

It was agreed that:

 

The executive’s response to the resolutions relating to the climate emergency passed by Council in March and July 2019 be agreed as detailed in Appendix 1.

 

The meeting adjourned between 2:58 and 3:09. Councillor Matthews left the meeting at this time.
