Surrey County Council Public Bus Contract Re-tendering 2018 pdf icon PDF 123 KB

    Surrey County Council is responsible for sourcing sustainable, safe, secure and reliable local bus services as defined by the Transport Acts 1985 and 2000.

     

    There are currently 185 bus services operating in Surrey and the County Council gives some financial support to around 75%.  This report seeks to award fifteen contracts to six operators, for the provision of 21 Public Bus Services.  The current contracts which expire on 1 September 2018 have been retendered and if awarded will commence from 2 September 2018.

     

    N.B. There is a Part 2 annex to this report – item 13

     

    [Decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee or the Environment Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    That following consideration of the results of the procurement process in the submitted Part 2 report, to award contracts to the following six operators was agreed:- BETC, Cardinal Buses, C E Jeatt & Son (White Bus), Edward Thomas, Metrobus and Southdown.

     

    2.    To note that the contract length would be three years with the option to extend up to a maximum of eight years as permitted by the 1985 Transport Act (as amended by s.70 Local Transport Act 2008). The total annual value of these contracts would be £1.037m (net of developer funding contribution for one route).

     

    Reason for Decision:

     

    The decision would enable the Council to achieve:

    • A net full year saving of £0.125m compared to the previous aggregated cost of the routes.
    • A robust bus network delivery of essential public transport to residents of Surrey.
    • Services delivered by operators who are reputable and meet the Council’s minimum level of quality.
    • Funding arrangements with operators that are sustainable.
    • More services being delivered using lower emission Euro VI vehicles.

     

    Ensures the Council complies with the Procurement Standing Orders (PSO), requiring Cabinet approval for those contracts that reach a specified value.

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport introduced this report which explained that Surrey County Council was responsible for sourcing sustainable, safe, secure and reliable local bus services as defined by the Transport Acts 1985 and 2000. These services enabled residents to access employment, education, medical appointments, essential food shopping and other key services.  This report sought to award fifteen contracts to six operators.  The current contracts to expire on 1 September 2018 had been retendered and if awarded would commence from 2 September 2018.  The proposals sought to maintain the existing network of bus provision, with some amendments proposed in certain areas.

     

    He also explained that there would be six Euro buses coming to Surrey which would be very good for air quality.  Several Members expressed their pleasure regarding the provision of Euro buses stating it was a positive move forward.

Investment Board Annual Report pdf icon PDF 87 KB

    The Investment Strategy agreed by Cabinet in July 2013 was developed in response to the requirement for the Council to enhance its financial resilience in the longer term.  In facilitation of this strategy, Cabinet approved the business case for the creation of a property company and associated subsidiaries in May 2014 in order to achieve a balanced property portfolio (across sectors and geographies) to generate an income for the Council.  The property company, Halsey Garton Property Ltd, and its subsidiaries are referred to in this report as “the Halsey Garton Property Group” (HGP).

     

    he Investment Board was created in March 2017 to approve property investment acquisitions, property investment management expenditure, property investment disposals and the provision of finance to HGP for the purposes of the strategy.  Prior to this an Investment Advisory Board was in place to make recommendations for Cabinet decision.  This annual report providing details of the investment property portfolio forms part of the agreed governance arrangements.

     

    N.B. There is a Part 2 annex to this report – item 14.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    That the Annual Report of the Investment Board be endorsed.

     

    Reason for Decision:

     

    To inform the Cabinet about the activities of the Investment Board.  The Investment Board were responsible for the delivery of the agreed Investment Strategy.  The Investment Strategy was created by the Council to deliver an ongoing and resilient source of income to provide financial support to the Council’s front line services. 

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Lead for People introduced this report that provided details of the investment property portfolio that formed part of the agreed governance arrangements. He explained that it was an important part of the Council’s strategy to become financially independent.  Whilst the percentage returns did not look too high this was in part due to the borrowing needed to fund the investments.  However, capital gains would be realised in the future.

     

    In response to a Member question regarding the level of expertise of the Investment Board and assessment of risk both the Leader and the Cabinet Lead for People described the level of experience of some of the members of the Board and that the level of challenge was high.  An external advisor, CBRE, set criteria on which each were assessed, scored and challenged.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    That the Annual Report of the Investment Board be endorsed.

     

    Reason for Decision:

     

    To inform the Cabinet about the activities of the Investment Board.  The Investment Board were responsible for the delivery of the agreed Investment Strategy.  The Investment Strategy was created by the Council to deliver an ongoing and resilient source of income to provide financial support to the Council’s front line services. 

     

    At this point in the meeting it was agreed to rearrange agenda items so that the Monthly Budget Monitoring Report was taken as the last of the Part 1 items.

Surrey Performing Arts Library - Future Arrangements pdf icon PDF 95 KB

    The Surrey Performing Arts Library (SPAL) helps support the cultural life of the county by bringing together a wide range of material on all aspects of performing arts, including the loan of multiple sets of music and drama items borrowed by groups. In order to ensure the long term sustainability of the collection, a review, including extensive public consultation, of how the collections are managed has been carried out.

     

    Arising from this, discussions have been initiated with a group, established as a charity, (‘NewSPAL’) around the potential user and service benefits that could accrue were the collections to be transferred to them.

     

    Both music and drama collections are currently housed at Denbies in Dorking. To ensure the effectiveness, coherence and continuity of the service, the collection is to be relocated to Ewell Library where the collections will be within the main library system.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Adults & Lifelong Learning Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    That NewSPAL, a new charitable body, be invited and supported to prepare a comprehensive business plan to take on operational responsibility for SPAL be agreed.

     

    2.    That a report on the NewSPAL business plan be brought to Cabinet for decision in the Autumn, 2018 be agreed. 

     

    Reasons for decisions:

     

    A review of the SPAL collections identified a number of measures to improve business operations and options to address issues for its long term sustainability. The option of transferring the function to an independent operator was proposed as it would mean that SPAL could operate outside of the continuing pressures on local government budgets.

     

    Despite considerable work, ultimately no suitable existing organisation confirmed their interest. However a new charity (NewSPAL) had recently been set up for the purpose of taking on SPAL. Potential advantages of the NewSPAL option was that it would be a user-led organisation and have potential to access funding opportunities not available to local authorities.

     

    There would be a robust process in place to test the viability of any transfer of the collections to NewSPAL and a report brought to Cabinet in the Autumn, 2018.

     

    The Communities Select Committee considered options for SPAL and agreed to support in principle NewSPAL taking over the collections.  In the interim, while the NewSPAL proposal was worked up in greater detail, to ensure the cost-effectiveness, coherence and continuity of the service, the collection was to be relocated to Ewell Library.

Both music and drama collections were currently housed at Denbies in Dorking. To ensure the effectiveness, coherence and continuity of the service, the entire collection was to be relocated to Ewell Library.

     

    The Chairman of the previous Communities Select Committee spoke of the work undertaken by that select committee and how it had worked well with residents to come up with the recommendations to officers.  She also stated that NewsPAL members may wish to consider joining the training session being offered to officers at Ewell Library in order for them to get a heads up.  She asked for leniency on the deadline of Autumn especially if the Cabinet required more information in the Business Case.  She also explained how she spoken with the Chairman of the new Adults and Lifelong Learning Select Committee regarding work carried forward.

     

    The Chairman of the Adults and Lifelong Learning Select Committee stated that the Committee supported the recommendations and were happy that the collections were being kept together.  They would work with NewsPAL to develop the business case.

     

    The Leader thanked both the Head of Cultural Services and the Lead Manager of Surrey Library Service for the work undertaken.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    1. That NewSPAL, a new charitable body, be invited and supported to prepare a comprehensive business plan to take on operational responsibility for SPAL be agreed.

Formation of Guildford Joint Committee pdf icon PDF 111 KB

    Building on the positive partnership working between Surrey County Council (SCC) and Guildford Borough Council (GBC), it is proposed to create a Joint Committee in place of the current SCC Guildford Local Committee.  SCC Cabinet (and full Council) approval is now sought to establish the Joint Committee. As part of this process, approval is also being sought from the GBC Executive (and full Council).  If approved by both councils, the Joint Committee will be in place from 19 September 2018, when it will hold its first meeting.

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    That following consideration of the Constitution set out in the Annex A to the minutes, including the Standing Orders under which the Joint Committee would operate it was agreed:   

    ·         To delegate the executive functions to the Guildford Joint Committee;

    ·         The extended advisory functions that will come under the remit of the Guildford Joint Committee.

    Cabinet recommendations to Full Council:

    2.    That Council agrees to the establishment of the Guildford Joint Committee in place of the current Local Committee arrangements to take effect from 19 September 2018.

     

    3.    That Council agrees to the delegation of the non-executive functions to the Guildford Joint Committee.

     

    4.    That Council appoint a Chairman of the newly formed Guildford Joint Committee from 19 September 2018, when the Joint Committee would hold its first meeting.

     

    5.    That Council appoint Mike Goodman, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, as the SCC Cabinet Member on the Guildford Joint Committee for the 2018/19 municipal year, subject to Council approval of the Constitution.

     

    6.    That authority be delegated to the Legal Services Manager, in consultation with the Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member and the SCC-appointed Chairman or Vice-Chairman of the Guildford Joint Committee, to agree to any minor amendments to the Constitution, which may be required

     

    Reasons for decisions:

     

    Cabinet and full Council agreement was required to establish a Guildford Joint Committee, to replace the current Local Committee arrangements; to delegate recommended executive functions to the newly formed Guildford Joint Committee; and to agree the Constitution and Standing Orders under which the newly formed committee would operate.

     

    Joint Committees were an innovative two tier response to central government policy initiatives. Positive conversations were being held with other Surrey borough and district councils on the formation of further joint committees with SCC.

     

    The creation of the Guildford Joint Committee builds on a strong track record of joint and collaborative working between the two authorities and provided a platform on which future joint arrangements could be co-ordinated.

     

    This approach had already proved successful in Woking and Spelthorne, where Joint Committees had been operating since June 2014 and January 2017 respectively and had shown to improve partnership working.

     

    The new Joint Committee would simplify and speed-up local decision making processes, enabled for the first time, all functions and budgets delegated to it to be jointly decided upon.

     

    The Guildford Joint Committee proposal was complementary to the work and remit of the current cross-party Local/ Joint Committee Review Group. The review aims ‘to set out the Council’s vision for local governance and engagement including the future role of Local/ Joint Committees in supporting Members in their role as community leaders’, an aim reflected in the ambition of the proposed Joint Committee. The Chairman of the Review Group Councillor Mary Angell was supportive of the Joint Committee proposal.

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for Community Services introduced this report that proposed to create a Joint Committee in place of the current SCC Guildford Local Committee and building on the positive partnership working between Surrey County Council (SCC) and Guildford Borough Council (GBC.  She explained how the Guildford Joint Committee would speed up decision making and strengthen local democracy. The closer working permitted by the new arrangement would allow both authorities to jointly respond on local issues.  The Joint Committee would also have an extended remit over and above that of the current Local Committee and would operate under an agreed framework for an initial 12 month period with the scope to delegate additional functions after this time in a structured format.

     

    The proposals were also complementary to the work of the Local/Joint Committee Review Group led by Mrs Mary Angell.  The Cabinet Member thanked Mrs Angell for the work undertaken.

     

    The Chairman of Guildford Local Committee spoke in favour of the proposals and thanked democratic services at Guildford BC for the work they had done.

     

    A few Cabinet Members spoke in favour of joint committees and that they would like to see all local committees go this way in the future.

     

    Thanks was also extended to the Community Partnerships Manager for his work on this.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    That following consideration of the Constitution set out in the Annex A to the minutes, including the Standing Orders under which the Joint Committee would operate it was agreed:  

     

    ·         To delegate the executive functions to the Guildford Joint Committee;

    ·         The extended advisory functions that will come under the remit of the Guildford Joint Committee.

    Cabinet recommendations to Full Council:

    1. That Council agrees to the establishment of the Guildford Joint Committee in place of the current Local Committee arrangements to take effect from 19 September 2018.

     

    1. That Council agrees to the delegation of the non-executive functions to the Guildford Joint Committee.

    1. That Council appoint Mike Goodman, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, as the SCC Cabinet Member on the Guildford Joint Committee for the 2018/19 municipal year, subject to Council approval of the Constitution.

     

    1. That authority be delegated to the Legal Services Manager, in consultation with the Leader of the Council, Cabinet Member and the SCC-appointed Chairman or Vice-Chairman of the Guildford Joint Committee, to agree to any minor amendments to the Constitution, which may be required
