Decisions published

01/07/2020 - BISHOPSMEAD PARADE ONE WAY SYSTEM (EXECUTIVE FUNCTION FOR DECISION) ref: 4220    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Guildford Joint Committee

Made at meeting: 01/07/2020 - Guildford Joint Committee

Decision published: 01/07/2020

Effective from: 10/07/2020

Decision:

Guildford Joint Committee:

 

(i)            AGREED the introduction of a one-way system on the north section of Bishopsmead Parade, East Horsley, in a southerly direction.

 

(ii)           AGREED to promote a traffic regulation order for the introduction of a one-way system on the north section of Bishopsmead Parade, as shown on the plan below.

 

Reasons for recommendations:

Currently, drivers can access Bishopsmead Parade from the three existing entries and exits. Due to the slight bend in Ockham Road South and boundary vegetation, visibility is poor for motorists exiting Bishopsmead Parade at the north section. This creates a hazard for motorists at this location and may result in future incidents.

 


01/07/2020 - GUILDFORD COLLEGE LINK+ 20 MPH SPEED LIMIT SCHEME (EXECUTIVE FUNCTION FOR DECISION) ref: 4221    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Guildford Joint Committee

Decision published: 01/07/2020

Effective from: 10/07/2020

Decision:

Guildford Joint Committee:

 

(i)            AGREED a 20 mph speed limit is implemented on Gardner Road, Markenfield Road, Nettles Terrace, Dapdune Road, Park Road, Drummond Road, George Road, Artillery Terrace, Artillery Road, Stoke Fields, Stoke Grove and Church Road to support safer walking and cycling along the “Guildford College Link+” route and throughout the adjoining neighbourhood of residential roads.

Reasons for recommendations:

The proposed lower 20 mph speed limit on Markenfield Road, Nettles Terrace and Dapdune Road will contribute to easier and safer walking, scooting and cycling on the new “Guildford College Link+” route between Guildford rail station and Guildford College. Providing a 20 mph speed limit on these roads and throughout the adjoining neighbourhood of residential roads will ensure consistency of speed limit and will contribute to easier and safer walking throughout the residential area.

23/06/2020 - Rethinking Waste - Surrey County Council's Waste Commissioning Strategy ref: 4190    Recommendations Approved

The current Waste PFI contract with Suez provides for the treatment and disposal of all local authority collected waste arising within the county. This contract expires in September 2024, and Surrey County Council (SCC) needs to commission new service arrangements. The desired outcomes from the Waste Commissioning Strategy will shape those new arrangements.

 

It is recommended that Cabinet approves the development of a Waste Commissioning Strategy, proposed outcomes, programme, and review of the variable elements of the funding mechanism for the Surrey Environment Partnership and Waste Collection Authorities.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 23/06/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 24/06/2020

Effective from: 02/07/2020

Decision:

RESOLVED:

2.    That the proposed outcomes for the Waste Commissioning Strategy be approved, to:

 

a)    Meet Surrey County Council’s Waste Disposal Authority (WDA) statutory duties.

c)    Reduce the carbon impact of waste collection and disposal.

d)    Maximise the integration of waste management in the county.

4.    That the review of the variable elements of the funding mechanism through which the county council funds the Surrey Environment Partnership and the Waste Collection Authorities, within this programme, be approved.

 

Reason for decision:

The development of a Waste Commissioning Strategy as set out will enable the Council to fulfil its statutory obligations as a Waste Disposal Authority more effectively and will set a framework in which to work with partners and districts and boroughs in achieving a more efficient and financially sustainable approach to the management of waste in the county.  Further, it will enable the Council to properly assess and identify ways of achieving the carbon reduction targets set out in the Council’s recently adopted Climate Change Strategy.

23/06/2020 - Finance Improvement Plan update ref: 4193    Recommendations Approved

In May 2018 the Leader and Chief Executive commissioned the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) to undertake a review of the council’s finances and finance function.

In response to the review a finance improvement programme was developed to address the issues raised.  The plan was approved by Cabinet in September 2018 and this report provides an update and recommends closure of the programme.

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 23/06/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 24/06/2020

Effective from: 02/07/2020

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

1.      That the closure of Finance Improvement Programme be approved.

 

2.      That the continued focus of the Finance Service on improvements (both people and process), learning from others and a culture of no complacency was endorsed.

 

3.      That the importance of the organisation’s continued focus on its financial discipline was recognised and the further development of the Finance Academy to continue to address and develop financial management capabilities across the organisation was endorsed.

 

4.      That the progress made on the Digital, Business & Insights programme and recognises the importance of this programme in the further work required to improve financial processes and data insights was noted.

 

5.      That thanks be extended to the members of the External Assurance Panel, recognising the importance of their involvement, honest feedback, experience and expertise throughout the programme was agreed.

 

Reason for decision:

 

The collective commitment to stabilising the financial position of the Council was demonstrated when the finance improvement plan was supported by the Cabinet in September 2018.  Since then a new medium-term financial strategy has been developed, aligned to the Community Vision for Surrey and a balanced budget has been set for consecutive years that does not rely on the use of reserves. 

Having achieved the ambitions of the action plan and addressed the issues raised by the CIPFA report, these recommendations enable the closure of the programme and ensure a continued focus on the development of, and investment in, financial management skills across the whole organisation, to ensure that excellent financial management is at the heart of all our decision making.

Lead officer: Anna D'Alessandro


23/06/2020 - Surrey Lane Rental Scheme ref: 4191    Recommendations Approved

To approve the draft SCC Lane Rental Scheme for submission to Secretary of State.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 23/06/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 24/06/2020

Effective from: 02/07/2020

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

1.    That Surrey County Council undertake a consultation as prescribed in the Department for Transport Lane Rental Schemes Guidance for English Local Highway Authorities with a view to introducing a lane rental scheme. Subject to the results of that consultation having been taken into account and a scheme being considered appropriate to make a submission to the Secretary of State for an Order to bring a scheme into legal effect.

 

2.    That delegated authority be given to the Director for Infrastructure and Delivery in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Transport to approve the commencement of a lane rental scheme once the Secretary of State approval has been obtained.

 

Reason for decision:

 

Surrey County Councils’ Community Vision for Surrey in 2030 has an aspiration that “Journeys across the County are easier, more predictable and safer”.  A lane rental scheme will help us achieve this aspiration.  Analysis from pioneer lane rental schemes, introduced by Transport for London (2012) and Kent County Council (2013) demonstrate clear benefits from a scheme. These benefits are derived from behaviour changes by organisations undertaking works, to avoid lane rental charges, and additional control by both Authorities to coordinate works.

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 23/06/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 24/06/2020

Effective from: 02/07/2020

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

  1. That the revised priorities and directorate plan for the Children, Families, Lifelong Learning & Culture directorate be agreed.

 

  1. That the overall findings and feedback from the recent quality assurance activity included in this report and the impact on frontline children’s services resulting from delivery of the Children’s Improvement Plan be noted.

 

3.    That a further report to come to the September 2020 meeting was agreed – to include an update on the children’s improvement programme and the next steps for the re-inspection of Surrey’s children’s services by Ofsted.

Reason for decision:

 

It is not yet known when the next Ofsted Monitoring Visit or full re-inspection will take place following cancellation of the 7 & 8 April 2020 visit. The ‘Annual Conversation’ with Ofsted is scheduled for 11 June 2020 when we expect to have further clarity on how the inspection programme will proceed.

 

The revised directorate plan has been updated to reflect the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. While significant effort and resources are working to manage and mitigate the impact of the pandemic, we are committed to delivering the vital improvement priorities also included in the directorate plan. 

 

As outlined in the main section of the report, the improvement programme is progressing well with Surrey’s children’s services successfully delivering the actions from the improvement plan to address Ofsted recommendations from the 2018 full inspection. There are comprehensive scrutiny arrangements already in place for 2020 with involvement from Surrey County Council (SCC) officers, Members, partner agencies, the Department for Education (DfE) and other key stakeholders.

The decisions recommended will enable the early work to develop the project to commence in a way that will ensure that the project has the best opportunity to meet the challenging HIF spend timetable of March 2024.

17/06/2020 - Hardship payment to VCF sector - St Matthews + Surrey Meditation ref: 4212    Recommendations Approved

Applications for financial support for Voluntary, Community & Faith sector organisations are being received by the Council. These requests for support are a direct result of financial hardship felt as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, due to either additional costs being incurred by these organisations to meet increased demand for their services or enable remote working, or as a result of reductions in their usual funding sources (eg donations and fund raising events). 

 

Applications are submitted on a standard request from and are being considered initially by a panel made up of Strategy and Finance colleagues.  The panel is assessing requests against the following criteria:

  • Small and medium sized organisation with an annual income of less than £1million during the financial year 2018/19
  • Are not in receipt of any outstanding, adverse judgements from relevant regulatory bodies e.g. Charities Commission, CQC
  • Operate within and provide services to meet needs in the county of Surrey
  • Provision of services to support vulnerable residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, and/or later in the recovery phase
  • Have provided SCC commissioned and/or funded services between 2015-2020, including organisations funded via grant, contracts and/or one-off commissioning
  • Provision of broader, strategic services to Surrey residents that SCC considers vital to maintain
  • Have evidenced and substantiated the additional financial pressures caused to the organisation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Will remain viable and able to assist Surrey during the post COVID-19 recovery phase, taking account of financial pressures already incurred and those that are forecast
  • Where funding will support the long term, future sustainability of the organisation.

 

In addition, applications must also demonstrate that:

  • Funding is actively being sought from alternative, relevant sources e.g. central government and Community Foundation for Surrey. SCC hardship funding will particularly favour residual pressures that cannot be met from other available means.
  • Organisations can remain viable between the receipt of staged payments from the SCC COVID-19 Hardship Fund which may be paid in several tranches

 

The following applications were recommended by the Panel and approved by the Executive Director for Transformation, Partnership & Prosperity & the Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Fire & Resilience.

 

Name

Amount awarded

Reason

St Matthew’s Church

£9,000

The applicant was able to demonstrate hardship as a result of loss of income and ongoing costs/overheads.  They asked for £18,000 but the panel is recommending giving half that amount which is in line with the criteria and covers the period up until the end of June.  The church is being used as the foodbank and is supporting 100 families a week at this time which was a key factor in recommending this decision.

Surrey Mediation Service

£5,870.00

The applicant applied for £10,000 and it is proposed to partially support them with £5,780 which supports the gap in managing the costs for the months that fit the hardship criteria.  The application came in two weeks ago in which time officers have asked the applicant for more information to better understand the reason for hardship.  There has been a reduction in clients paying for services which has caused the hardship.  The applicant has taken sufficient mitigating measures like furloughing staff/small businesses payment however a gap remains.  They will be signposted to CFS for any further support if needed but will remain sustainable through their business model which is primarily based on fee-paying services.
