FC/02.20.12 Council to approve the Mayor’s allowance for 2020/21 and the criteria and process

for the election of Deputy Mayor:

The councillors discussed the working group’s proposals for the criteria and process for the election of the deputy mayor and considered the note of the meeting on 27 January.

It was agreed that the qualifying period of two years was a good idea as well as a demonstration of active participation at meetings and in council business.

However, most of the councilors wanted to keep the process of having a list setting out when each councillor should be offered the opportunity to be deputy mayor, with the option to defer. Some councilors felt that certain councillors would stand back if no list was in place.

Cllr Newton suggested that if a mayor wanted to stay on this would have an impact on the deputy mayor who should be the mayor next.Cllr Luxford-Vaughan noted that some councillors would dominate if they had the chance to be mayor each year.

Cllr Tile summarised that the councilors like the idea of a qualifying period and that training should be undertaken but not ‘the hat in the ring’ approach. Cllr Tile asked for a proposal.

Cllr Aldis proposed that WTC retain the list. Cllr Luxford-Vaughan added with a qualifying period of two years except where there are exceptional circumstances such as an election which may result in a change of many councillors.

Cllr Newton highlighted the need for skills. With regards to training Cllr Luxford -Vaughan said that councilors are aware that there is a budget in place and support for training must be provided to give confidence. The Town Clerk can assist in providing training advice. The Town Clerk confirmed that training cannot be mandatory. Cllr Evans said that skills are just as important as training. Cllr Read said that a list gives all the chance to be mayor and training can be extremely useful. Cllr Aldis said that training has to be slow and organic not forced.

Cllr Read highlighted the need for the deputy mayor to chair committee meetings; it’s a difficult role.

Cllr Aldis and Cllr Tile suggested a vote at another meeting. It was agreed that the Town Clerk will need to work on the list which requires updating.

Mayor’s allowance for 2020/21:

The councillors explained the purpose of the allowance to Cllr Maltby.

Cllr Luxford-Vaughan proposed that the current allowance of £1400 is increased by 5% this year and indexed linked going forward. This was seconded by Cllr Evans and voted for by majority. Cllr Read requested that his vote against this proposal was recorded.

Pre-approved payments

The RFO updated on the need for the preapproval of four payments without further quotations being obtained and therefore under a suspension of the financial regulations:

1.St Mary’s church clock: payment proposed by Cllr Aldis, seconded by Cllr Newton- the majority in favour. Cllr Broughton requested that his vote against this proposal was recorded.

2. The payment of £400 for Cllr Tile’s proposal passed in December 2019 for the carbon- offset. This payment was proposed by Cllr Luxford-Vaughan, seconded by Cllr Newton – a majority voted in favour.

3. The payment of £1250 per heater for two heaters in the WLH which are required as a matter of urgency and to avoid reputational risk. WTC are limited in the type of heater which can be installed. It was agreed that the heating system does need to be reviewed properly. The RFO confirmed the budget that is available. This payment was proposed by Cllr Evans, seconded by Cllr Read- a majority voted in favour.

4. The payment of £2500 for a new boiler for 83 High Street which is required as a matter of urgency. This payment was proposed by Cllr Boughton, seconded by Cllr Booth – a majority voted in favour.

FC/02.20.13 The Chair of Finance to update the Council on a payment to Ellisons Solicitors:

Cllr Newton updated the council on the requirement for legal costs to be paid to Ellison Solicitors for work undertaken in 2017-2019. The Town Clerk and RFO had advised the council that this invoice must be paid.

Appendix A

County Councillors report February 2020

Councillors may recall the pavement scheme ECC ran to allow County Councillors the chance to nominate the worst footpaths for repair. One footpath outside 73 The Avenue was the site of a nasty fall and I nominated this footpath for repair. This has now been completed which is very good to see. The scheme was extended by the offer of a further 2 footpaths and I used both of these to focus on getting as much of the Broomgrove footpath leading up to the schools done.

Pothole update :

Potholes in The Avenue

I am pleased to confirm that The Avenue has been put forward for machine resurfacing next financial year. Once the programme has been finalised, the successful resurfacing sites will be published on our website: https://www.essexhighways.org/transport-and-roads/interactive-maps-and-live-travel-information.aspx

In the meantime, a full safety inspection of The Avenue is due to take place this month (February). Inspectors typically use purple, orange and red spray paint to signify priority of repairs.

Belle Vue Drain Cover

This has now been repaired although it appears to be sinking again.

Rectory Road

A job has been raised to repair the carriageway opposite number 76, outside numbers 70, 51a, 49, 25, 9a, 5, outside the cricket club and at the junction Manor Road. A firm date for delivery of these works is not yet available but an update will follow.

Patching is planned followed by drainage work and then resurfacing.

Station Road

A Streetworks Inspector is to visit this location and assess the quality of this utility repair. If further repairs are required, contact will be made with the relevant utility company.

Old Ferry Road

I can see we are aware of some potholes at this roundabout which are currently being monitored for deterioration. The next full safety inspection will take place in March 2020 when the potholes will be assessed again. If there has been significant deterioration, repairs will be programmed.

Alresford Road

Alresford Road received a full safety inspection in January 2020 and I can see we are monitoring a number of potholes here for deterioration but no repairs are planned at the moment. The road will receive another full safety inspection in April 2020.

Road safety at Millfields school following the recent accident :

The instillation of guard rails at Millfields school should be completed this week. This work agreed in 2018 has seen a stream of delays one reason being cabling along the footpath.

The Colchester LHP Schemes Awaiting Funding List for the March 2020 Panel will feature a green scheme under LCOL192016 for o/s Millfields Primary School, Bowes Road, Wivenhoe for School Warning Signs with wig-wag flashing lights at school times. The estimated cost for LCOL192016 is £16,000 and subject to a funding recommendation from the Panel this would become a Funded Scheme for implementation in 2020/21.

Once we have an LHP funding recommendation the scheme will be implemented and we can see what effect it has on traffic speed especially at school drop-off/pick up times.

I have requested additional street lighting around the junction of Bowes road and Rectory Hill as it is very dark here and is dangerous to cross the road here and get to and from the bus stop.

As you are aware there has been some issues confirming whether Essex County Council maintain this area of highway. Officers have carried out some investigations and can confirm that the steps are maintained by ECC, however we are still unable to confirm if the retaining wall is ours.  As the steps and wall have been there for over 140 years there is a chance the wall may be within our remit but Officers are still investigating this matter.

Officers have found that the retaining wall is broken and cracked in several places, therefore following their investigations a request will be made for our Structures team to attend the site and assess the wall. 

The steps have been visited quite a few times by officers, the railings are sunk into the ground rather than bolted, which means we will be able to extend the steps and place a further railing alongside the hedge on the other side of the path from the concrete ramp.  However, I need to make you aware that in order for these works to go ahead we need to liaise with National Rail or Abelio and we will be required to have a BAPA (Basic Asset Protection Agreement).  This could take months to arrange, therefore at this stage there is no timescale for this work. 

The cleaning of leaves and debris in this area would fall within the remit of Colchester Borough Council and a request via the Street Cleaning team for the site to be attended.

Appendix B

A Report to Wivenhoe Town Council for Monday 17th February 2020.

There are a number of issues members might wish to note:

Planning. There is nothing of any significance to note.

Locality Budget. This year my locality budget supported a variety of groups in Wivenhoe that provide social events for elderly persons, educate residents on better bike use, organise film festivals, operate a farmers’ market collective, maintain church buildings available for public hire, flood light tennis courts, operate a community radio station, explore and promote the history of Wivenhoe, as well as emergency life saving community first responders.

Chaney Road. I was approached by a number of residents who complained about dog fouling in that area. I contacted the zone warden and arranged for signs to be placed on dog bins and lampposts around Chaney Road and Broomgrove School. There has been some reduction in mess, but it continues. So the situation will continue to be monitored.

Crime prevention. At the recent AGM of WAGA, the problem of anti-social behaviour in the allotments at Rectory Road was raised. One suggestion was to plant a prickly hedge along one side of the allotment to deter trespassers, provided WTC agreed. I am pleased to have secured 100 hawthorn and wild cherry bushes from CBC as part of its annual giveaway of over ten thousand shrubs an bushes on Saturday 22nd February at the Community Stadium. Hopefully this will enable allotment holders to enjoy their pastime in peace and quiet.

Britannia Court. At a recent tenants’ meeting the problem of car that had belonged to a resident who had died in October 2018, without leaving a Will or any living relatives. He left a car parked at Britannia Court. Since it is parked on private land, owned by CBC and managed by CBH, and not on the public highway a different procedure has to be used to dispose it. I am applying myself to removing that vehicle so that it ceases to obstruct the access to the premises.

Potholes. Town councillors will be aware of the street art adorning one particular pot hole in The Avenue. Whilst drawing obscene graffiti is unacceptable behaviour, this example does make a point and demonstrates the frustration residents feel about the lack of any urgency by Essex Highways to repair our miserable roads. I have reported it to Essex Highways and it will be interesting to see how long before it is patched up, or if the artwork is removed before the pothole!

CCTV. Colchester Borough Council is considering the introduction of CCTV in all its hackney carriage and private hire vehicles and is holding a public consultation on the draft policy to seek the views of the public and the trade.  

The key aim and purpose of the introduction of CCTV is to provide a safer environment for drivers and passengers by -  

    • Deterring and preventing the occurrence of crime and anti-social behaviour and reducing the fear of crime

    • Safeguarding users and drivers

    • Assisting the Council and Police in investigating incidents of crime; investigating officers would be able to gather evidence for use in prosecutions or disprove false allegations

If you have any comments, observations or representations that you may wish to make on the policy, these can be e-mailed to licensingteam@colchester.gov.uk   The closing date for representations is 30 April 2020. 

The policy and technical specification can be found at   http://www.colchester.gov.uk/cctvconsultation 

Ward Cllr. Cyril Liddy.

Monday 17th February 2020.

Appendix C

Wivenhoe Town Council Report 17.02.2020 – Cllr Mark Cory

Salary Brook:

I have organised for local representatives and experts to meet with the borough council to discuss the next steps being taken with the Salary Brook environmental destruction. The meeting is next Monday, sadly Chris Gibson can’t make it but Cllr Evans is confirmed as going – pending up to date information is passed to him prior to the meeting.

Wivenhoe Trail:

I have reported the worsening state of the Wivenhoe Trail and have officers working on the analysis of what needs to be done and at what cost. The cost will be high, but it is regularly used by walkers, joggers and cyclists, which needs to be encouraged. I hope to make links with Tarmac, who could support some of the work as part of their community payback.

Cycle Path Trees and Hedgerow:

I requested that officers investigate the potential of putting in more trees along the cycle path fence and on the other side of the road between the ditches. Sadly, I have received an in-depth response explain that more trees, (similar to those asked for by Wivenhoe Society while the cycle path was being created), are not going to be possible. With the opportunity of CBC giving out trees I had hoped to make this work, I will continue to question and see if only limited planting can be done. I encourage WTC to work with me in finding other areas where CBC sponsored tree planting can take place in Wivenhoe. The Trees for Years giveaway is happening again, this Saturday 22nd Feb at the Colchester United Stadium – 10,000 trees are available this year.

School Safety

I met with the Head at Millfields, along with Cllr Evans and Leigh-Ann (a staff member and resident of Amberley), to discuss safety issues and parking around the school. I am working with Broomgrove Schools on the same matter. I took away a number of actions that I am working through, Cllr Evans can update fellow councillors. I will update once actions are completed.

CBC Budget passed with amendment:

CBC’s budget was passed this week with an important amendment of NEGC spending. Cllr Luxford-Vaughan pushed for a NEGC money not to be released before a vote, and the amendment from Cllr Gerard Oxford stipulated just that. This was accepted as an amendment and the budget passed. I can update you on the highlights of the budget next time.

Climate Emergency Action Plan:

The Climate Emergency Action plan was also passed unanimously, outlining so of the next steps needed for the Council to measure and act upon its carbon footprint and impact upon bio-diversity. Funding has been made available, further work from the environmental task and finish group is needed, and further engagement with communities, including with parish/town councils will made carried out.

Locality Budgets:

Cllr Luxford-Vaughan and I pooled our Locality Budgets this year and supported 16 Wivenhoe projects and organisations. Wivenhoe Town Council received funding for Cllr Maltby’s Terra-cycle packaging recycling project and Cllr Newton’s sensory garden application. Other recipients were: Community 1st responders, Wivenhoe Tennis club, Wivenhoe Market Collective, Wivenhoe Methodist Church, WivGigs Rowing Club, Wivenhoe Congregational church, Wivenhoe Bike Kitchen, Moving Image, Monday club, Wivenhoe Allotment and Garden Association, Wivenhoe Community Tea Group and Colne Radio.

Appendix E

Town Clerk Report; Full Town Council meeting on 17 February 2020.

  1. We arranged three dates with the Volunteer Team at the University of Essex to assist with projects. Unfortunately, the skate park painting had be cancelled due to bad weather but will be rearranged. The sensory garden will be cleared on 22 February and there is a litter pick on 15 March- please let me know if you want to help.
  1. Sgt Simon Tattersall will be coming to the March FTC meeting.
  1. We have provided David Bridle Web designer with the headers and material we need on the new website. I’m hopeful that this will be launched by April.
  1. Justin Smith gave a presentation on 29 January about funding streams/grant funding. I have circulated material from him including a project template. I also circulated material from a company called Maverick who are working with Harwich on their new skate park They think that the minimum spend should be £150k and provided some examples. I’m happy to work on this after the VE day event.
  1. I met with Ben Stonehouse, Cinex on 14 February. The company put on outdoor cinema events. Good news is that because any funds raised can go to the Mayor’s fund we can be treated like a charity so there is no upfront cost. The company arrange everything – food, drinks, lighting, seating if we want it, ticketing, promotional material- all we do is advertise. Ticket prices would be approx. £12 to cover costs and we would need to sell 250 tickets approx. I suggested that we start with a family friendly film first and don’t sell alcohol. For an event in August he said we could start marketing in June. Possible dates to follow.
  1. I have worked with the staff on a 12-month plan. We plan to hold another event like the one held in December with the volunteers, probably in early June.
