Minutes:

50.1          The Chair welcomed the Manager of the Counter Fraud Unit to the meeting and in presenting the report, circulated at Pages No. 13-20 which detailed the policy, she explained that it was relatively legislative but was an overarching policy that had been prepared in partnership with One Legal to deliver a prosecution policy. The policy did not go into great detail with regard to each service area as they would all retain their own specific enforcement policies, however, if a member of the public was looking at what the Council could enforce, this explanatory document would cover this and outline the areas where the Council could undertake enforcement action, how it did that and what tests it applied when taking such action.

51.2          The Counter Fraud Unit Manager advised that the local authority was required to have effective policies to enable Officers to gather intelligence and conduct surveillance in line with the law and the policies appended to the report refreshed the Council’s existing policies.

Council Plan Performance Tracker and COVID-19 Recovery Tracker - Quarter One 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 392 KB

To receive and respond to the findings of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee‘s review of the quarter one performance management and recovery information. 

Subject To Call In:: No - Item to Note.

Additional documents:

Decision:

That the Overview and Scrutiny Committee’s comments on the Council Plan Performance Tracker and COVID-19 Recovery Tracker for Quarter One of 2020/21 be NOTED.

Minutes:

52.1          The report of the Chair of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, circulated at Pages No. 82-168, asked Members to review and, if appropriate, take action on the observations of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee following its review of the Quarter One 2020/21 Council Plan performance tracker and COVID-19 recovery tracker information.

52.2          Attention was drawn to the observations made by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, attached at Appendix 1 to the report, and the Council Plan Performance Tracker, attached to the report at Appendix 2. The Overview and Scrutiny Committee Chair reminded the Executive Committee that the figures were for the first quarter of 2020/21 and, as such, had been wholly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This was also the first time the COVID-19 corporate recovery plan performance tracker had been considered by Members and that was attached to the report at Appendix 3. The financial information for the quarter was attached at Appendices 4-7.

52.3          Members had been provided with a summary of the key areas discussed by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee and the Chair of that Committee indicated that  it had been the consensus of Members that it was difficult to scrutinise and hold to account actions that had not been progressed given the significant challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.  It had been suggested that there may be a clearer picture at quarter two, however, operationally the Council was now into quarter three and, as a result of the second national lockdown, some areas of the Council were back into response mode. The Head of Corporate Services, when presenting the report, had caveated that both the performance and recovery tracker actions could be impacted by further response work. Some key areas of discussion had included the commercial property investment portfolio in respect of which the Head of Finance and Asset Management had confirmed that, so far, the portfolio was holding up well and none of the tenants had reported any problems which was pleasing to hear; the rural housing needs assessment, during which it had been noted that the Gloucestershire Rural Partnership was being used to assist with the work and clarification would be sought to explain and justify the move in timescales from March 2020 to March 2023; the Joint Core Strategy and questions had been asked about the implications of the government’s White Paper on housing allocations and the duty to co-operate whereby the Head of Development Services had confirmed that work on the Joint Core Strategy would not be stopped because of the White Paper as the evidence work still needed to be undertaken and, whatever the eventual outcome on the reforms, this work was still necessary to inform the Council going forward. She had also stressed that, even if the duty to co-operate was abolished as proposed by the government, it did not mean the Council could stop working with its neighbours as this was actively encouraged to assess the spatial distribution of housing and employment - the message was still  ...  view the full minutes text for item 52.

Financial Update - Quarter Two 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 194 KB

To consider the quarterly budget position.

Subject To Call In:: No - Item to Note.

Additional documents:

Decision:

That the financial performance information for the second quarter of 2020/21 be NOTED.  

Minutes:

53.1          The report of the Head of Finance and Asset Management, circulated at Pages No. 169-194, highlighted a projected year-end deficit on the revenue budget and detailed the expenditure to date against both the capital programme and the approved reserves. Members were asked to consider the financial performance information for the second quarter of 2020/21.

53.2          Members were advised that this was the first report in the new format which forecasted to the year-end and it was hoped it would provide a more meaningful quarter end report. In addition, the Committee was advised that the report before it had been prepared prior to the latest lockdown so the information contained therein was likely to change as costs rose and income fell. The current year-end deficit was £329,000 which combined the impacts of COVID-19 with normal activities and additional grant funding from the government.

53.3          The Head of Finance and Asset Management drew particular attention to the surplus on employee costs of £642,401 which had been generated through staff vacancies across all services. COVID-19 meant there had been a delay to recruitment from the end of March, which may have left a greater number of posts open than normal, however recruitment processes were operating again with all remaining vacant posts in Development and Corporate out for recruitment. The Council had separately identified where costs had been incurred as a direct response to the COVID-19 pandemic with the aim being to demonstrate to central government the impact on the Council’s revenue position and that, without additional financial support, those costs would have a significant impact on the reserves held by the Council. Those areas that had been identified included the Council’s contractual requirement with Places Leisure, the purchase of 115 laptops to ensure staff could work from home effectively, the additional costs incurred by Ubico as it responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and a significant increase in demand on services particularly supporting vulnerable people in the Borough whether that was residents who were shielding, those finding themselves homeless or those who were facing unemployment and required financial support. The deficit on income had been attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and had resulted in planning income expected to be under budget by £276,000 including planning fees, land charges and street naming and numbering; £248,000 of lost income from car parks as all charges were suspended during the lockdown period; £69,000 of lost income from rental income since some businesses were closed during the lockdown period; £42,000 lost income on trade waste during the first half of the year as a significant number of customers businesses were closed and their accounts were suspended during the lockdown period; £33,000 budget deficit on licensing, particularly around lost renewals on vehicle and taxi licences as well as premises licences; £47,000 budget deficit on the recovery of housing benefit overpayments and, as the Courts had been closed, there had been no revenue from Council Tax summons which amounted to a £100,000 loss; and a potential £214,000 budget deficit  ...  view the full minutes text for item 53.

Corporate Peer Challenge - Final Report and Action Plan pdf icon PDF 133 KB

To receive the final report and action plan following the corporate peer review challenge and make a recommendation to Council.  

Subject To Call In:: No - Recommendation to Council.

Additional documents:

Decision:

That it be RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL:

1.       That the peer review action plan be APPROVED.

2.       That monitoring of the action plan be undertaken by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee on a six-monthly basis.

Minutes:

54.1          The report of the Chief Executive, circulated at Pages No. 195-218, attached the final report and action plan following the Council’s corporate peer challenge. The Committee was asked to recommend to Council that the peer review action plan be approved and that the monitoring of the action plan be undertaken by the Overview and Scrutiny Committee on a six-monthly basis.

54.2          The Head of Corporate Services explained that the results of the corporate peer challenge had been somewhat overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it was a significant piece of work for the Council so needed to be considered by Members. The report from the review team had been very positive about the Council and gave much for it to be proud of. A summary of the feedback could be found in the executive summary of the report and, as would be expected, there were some areas identified for improvement with five key recommendations that were summarised within Page No. 2 of the final report. The internal action plan comprised those recommendations and associated action points, as well as other less implicit recommendations, and that could be found at Appendix 2 to the report. The final report would be published on the Council’s website and promoted by the Communications Team via a press release and social media messages and, in addition, all stakeholders who had participated during the challenge would receive a link to the report.

54.3          A Member indicated that some of the recommendations referred to the Garden Town and she felt it was helpful to note that this was a transforming programme which had moved on significantly since the corporate review. The Chair agreed and advised that the recommendations which had been made had largely not been a surprise but the small number of them had been great news following such an extensive and intensive exercise. He offered thanks on behalf of all Members to everyone who had been involved in the review process the outcome of which he thought was well deserved and a great reflection on the way Tewkesbury Borough Council worked as an authority, as well as its effort and professionalism. A Member questioned how much work the action plan would create for Officers at a time when they were already stretched with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, the Head of Corporate Services advised that no Officers had indicated they would not be able to address the actions, many of which were already being worked on. In addition, a Member noted that one of the things mentioned was the need for a succession plan for the Chief Executive and she queried whether this was being addressed; particularly as the current Deputy Chief Executive was about to leave the authority. The Chief Executive confirmed that, when the time came, he was sure the Council would be able to find a fantastic replacement, but he undertook to begin informal discussions with Members about this issue.

Wormington Village Hall Grant Update pdf icon PDF 130 KB

To receive an update on the discussions in respect of the Wormington Village Hall grant following the decision of Executive Committee on 8 January 2020. 

Subject To Call In:: Yes - No action to be taken prior to the expiry of the call-in period.

Decision:

That the grant offer of £57,700 previously made to Wormington Village Society be WITHDRAWN.  

Minutes:

55.1          The report of the Head of Finance and Asset Management, circulated separately at Pages No. 1-4, set out discussions with both Wormington Village Society and the Chair of Dumbleton Parish Council and recommended the withdrawal of the offer of a community grant to Wormington Village Society. The Executive Committee was asked to approve the withdrawal of the £57,700 offer to the Society.

55.2          The Head of Finance and Asset Management explained that in January 2020, Members had received an annual update on capital grant schemes which remained outstanding and one of the updates presented was a grant offer to Wormington Village Society to support the development of a village hall in Wormington. The grant had been awarded in March 2013 and, since the offer had been made, the Wormington Village Society had been in discussion with Dumbleton Parish Council regarding the use of land where it was intended to build the new village hall. The land identified was in the ownership of Dumbleton Parish Council and, following the receipt of independent legal advice, a number of constraints had been identified by the Parish Council in relation to the use of the land for the proposed village hall which meant the scheme had been unable to proceed. Several meetings and exchanges of correspondence had taken place between the two parties, but no agreement had been reached. At the meeting in January, Members had agreed to a six-month extension to the grant to allow the Deputy Chief Executive to engage with the parties concerned to try and move the project forward; however, it had become clear from the outcome of those discussions that Dumbleton Parish Council had a firm position, supported by independent legal advice, and would not deviate from the advice given. With that in mind, the Deputy Chief Executive could not see how the proposed village hall project could progress.

55.3          During the discussion which ensued, Members agreed that seven years was plenty of time for the grant to have been available and the project to move forward so it seemed fair to withdraw it at this stage given no agreement could be reached. A Member questioned whether the money would be available for other community groups to bid for and, in response, the Head of Finance and Asset Management confirmed that the money was capital funding and as such could not be used for strengthening the COVID-19 community funding. The funding would sit in the capital programme unless the Council made a decision to remove it and it could remain there for as long as required. The Council’s Community Funding Officer would be able to understand if there were any projects out there that could benefit from the money and Members would be able to direct appropriate projects to it.

Tewkesbury Together 2021 pdf icon PDF 137 KB

To allocate £25,000 from Reserves to support Tewkesbury Together 2021.

Subject To Call In:: Yes - No action to be taken prior to the expiry of the call-in period.

Decision:

1.       That £25,000 be allocated from reserves to support Tewkesbury Together 2021.

2.       That the Head of Development Services and Head of Finance and Asset Management, in consultation with the Lead Member for Finance and Asset Management and the Lead Member for Economic Development/Promotion, be authorised to spend the allocation.

Minutes:

56.1          The report of the Head of Development Services, circulated at Pages No. 219-221, outlined the aims for Tewkesbury Together, plus a proposal for potential funding from the Council. Members were asked to allocate £25,000 from reserves to support Tewkesbury Together 2021 and to delegate authorisation of the spend to the Head of Development Services and the Head of Finance and Asset Management, in consultation with the Lead Members for Finance and Asset Management and Economic Development/Promotion.

56.2          The Economic and Community Development Manager explained that 2021 was a momentous year for Tewkesbury as it would be 900 years since the consecration of the Abbey and 550 years since the Battle of Tewkesbury, and a Steering Group had been formed in the town to represent various organisations with the aim of putting together a programme of events to celebrate the significant date. Unfortunately the planning had been somewhat hampered by COVID-19 and the uncertainty of what would and would not go ahead over the coming months, so there was not currently an agreed schedule of events in place; notwithstanding this, it had been requested that the Borough Council allocate a sum of £25,000 towards the 2021 celebrations. It was recommended that the Steering Group could then submit proposals for the funds which would be delegated to the relevant Heads of Service and Lead Members to approve.

56.3          During the discussion which ensued, a Member questioned what kind of events were planned and, in response, the Economic and Community Development Manager confirmed there were ideas for improving existing events as well as adding new ones such as light shows, school activities, public art, and sport and art events – unfortunately this was all dependent upon the situation with the pandemic. It was hoped that by next summer the world would be in a much better position and events could take place across the whole Borough to commemorate the occasions. In terms of the COVID-19 pandemic, a Member questioned what would happen to the funding if the Steering Group could not hold any events and she was advised that the proposals would come to the relevant Officers and Members for endorsement, so if no events took place, none of the money would be spent. The figure of £25,000 was considered to be a sensible figure but if the Steering Group submitted a proposal which cost slightly more then that would be considered under the delegation. A suggestion was made that the recommendation be amended to include a need for events to draw in the rest of the Borough but, in response, the Chief Executive confirmed that he was certain the organisers would want to engage people from across the whole Borough, as well as those further afield, given the significance of the celebration.

Infrastructure Funding Statement pdf icon PDF 137 KB

To consider the Infrastructure Funding Statement and make a recommendation to Council. 

Subject To Call In:: No - Recommendation to Council.

Additional documents:

Decision:

That it be RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL:

1.       That the publication of the Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) for 2020 be APPROVED.

2.       That it be NOTED that the Annual Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Rates Summary Statement will be published alongside the Infrastructure Funding Statement.  

Minutes:

57.1          The report of the Community Infrastructure Levy Manager for the Joint Core Strategy Authorities, circulated at Pages No. 222-249, updated the Committee on the preparation of the Infrastructure Funding Statement for 2020 including the required Infrastructure List. Members were asked to recommend to Council that the publication of the Infrastructure Funding Statement for 2020 be approved and to note that the annual Community Infrastructure Levy Rates Summary Statement would be published alongside the Infrastructure Funding Statement.

57.2          The Head of Development Services explained that the Infrastructure Funding Statement was a requirement of the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2010 (as amended) because the Council had a Community Infrastructure Levy Charging Schedule. The Infrastructure Funding Statement consisted of four parts: Community Infrastructure Levy report; S106 report; Infrastructure List; and the Annual Community Infrastructure Levy Rates Summary Statement. It also included a list of infrastructure projects which were appended to the report. All figures within the Statement were factual and the contents were prescribed by the Regulations, so the Council did not have discretion to change them.

Replacement Pay and Display Parking Machines pdf icon PDF 156 KB

To recommend to Council the setting aside of capital receipts for the replacement of machinery.

Subject To Call In:: No - Recommendation to Council.

Decision:

That it be RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL:

1.       That capital funding of £117,000 be allocated from the Capital Receipts Reserve for the replacement of car park pay and display machines across all authority-owned and charged car parks.  

2.       That authority be delegated to the Head of Finance and Asset Management to procure suitable parking pay and display machines that offer cash and card payment options with a remote back office function.

Minutes:

58.1          The report of the Head of Finance and Asset Management, circulated at Pages No. 250-254, outlined a request for a capital budget of £117,000 to replace the ageing parking pay and display machines within the Borough Council’s car parks. The Committee was asked to recommend to Council that the capital funding requested be approved and that authority be delegated to the Head of Finance and Asset Management to procure suitable parking pay and display machines that offered cash and card payment options with a remote back office function. 

58.2          The Head of Finance and Asset Management explained that the Borough Council managed 10 car parks across Tewkesbury and Winchcombe towns which currently had an ageing stock of pay and display machines that had not been replaced for more than 13 years. The age of the machines was causing a lot of problems in terms of frequent breakdowns and difficulty in sourcing parts as well as the issue of not holding data centrally and offering a lack of functionality for payments etc. Replacing the machines would give an opportunity to offer card payment for users and remote access for Officers via a back-office portal which would receive live data of car park usage and any machine faults, as well as reducing the ongoing maintenance costs of the machines. The popularity of the Council’s cashless system via ‘Ringo’ had been helpful and that, along with better machines, meant the current provision of 18 machines could be reduced to 12 as there would not be the requirement for more than one machine in the smaller car parks as a back up in case of breakdowns. The costs within the report were for the most expensive machines and the highest number that could be required; this was likely to be reduced considerably through the procurement process and as the number of machines was agreed. Any money that was not required would go back into balances.

58.3          Members agreed that the current machines were at the end of their life and needed replacing but some questioned whether they needed to have a cash option at all now people were much more used to contactless payments, it was felt this would also reduce the likelihood of vandalism of, and theft from, the machines. In response, the Head of Development Services agreed that the Council had seen a great uplift in the past few months of people using the payment app and the added functionality of contactless in the new machines would benefit many more people but there were still those that wanted to pay cash and it was felt that, particularly in the short to medium term, that ability should still be offered. Certainly, in the longer term it may be a consideration to move away from cash payments entirely. In terms of the security of the machines, this had improved significantly in recent years meaning they were far less likely to be broken into and, in addition, they were concreted into the ground so  ...  view the full minutes text for item 58.
