Cabinet - 20 July 2020 pdf icon PDF 249 KB

The Chairman, Councillor Dr Walsh, will present the Minutes from the meeting of Cabinet held on 20 July 2020.  There is a recommendation at:

 

o   Minute 91 – [Supplementary Estimate to Defend Appeals at Middleton Poultry Farm [M/80/19/PL]; Inglenook Hotel, Pagham [P/58/19/PL]; and Land East of Shripney Road, Shripney [BE/109/19/OUT] – to view the Officer’s report please click on this link - Report

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

            The Chairman, Councillor Dr Walsh, presented the Minutes from the meeting of Cabinet held on 20 July 2020.

 

            Councillor Dr Walsh alerted Members to a recommendation at Minute 91 [Supplementary Estimate to Defend Appeals at Middleton Poultry Farm [M/80/19/PL; Inglenook Hotel, Pagham [P/58/19/PL]; and Land East of Shripney Road, Shripney [BE/109/19/OUT].  Councillor Dr Walsh outlined that approval was being sought for a supplementary estimate of £40,000 to allow the Council to defend three planning appeals for major development where planning permission had been refused by the Development Control Committee.  Councillor Dr Walsh formally proposed the recommendation which was then seconded by Councillor Lury.

 

            In debating the recommendation many comments were made. Concern was expressed over the fact that the Planning Department had a very limited budget for this work and that the increase in workload for Officers could not be sustained by existing resources.  Another concern, which had been detailed in the Officer’s report, was that it may be difficult to find a consultant that would be willing to defend the decisions taken by the Council.  It was felt that the Development Control Committee was making unreasonable decisions and that the £40k supplementary estimate request did not include the cost of potentially losing the appeals.  The report had also warned Councillors of the fact that there could be further appeals that could place the Council back into this situation again. 

 

            Other opinions provided focused on the performance of the Planning Department in terms of defending appeals, and the quality of decision making at Development Control which was often contrary to Officer advice. 

 

            Following a lengthy debate,

 

            The Council

 

                        RESOLVED

           

That a supplementary estimate of £40,000 is agreed in order to defend decisions taken on planning applications M/80/19/PL, P/58/19/PL and BE/109/19/0UT at planning appeal be approved.

 

[The Band D equivalent for £40k supplementary estimate is £0.64].

·         Part 2 – Articles of the Constitution

·         Part 3 – Responsibility for Functions

·         Part 4 – Officer Scheme of Delegation; and

·         Part 5 – Meeting Procedure Rules

Minutes:

            The Chairman, Councillor Mrs Yeates, presented the Minutes from the meetings of the Constitution Working Party held on 17 and 24 August 2020. 

 

            Councillor Mrs Yeates explained that the Constitution Working Party was reporting back to Full Council on the progress of the work to date in implementing the new governance arrangements.  The minutes from the meeting held on 24 August 2020, contained a list of recommendations relating to Parts 1 to 5 of the Constitution. The background papers showing the replacement sections for Parts 1 to 5 of the Constitution had been uploaded to the Full Council website on 9 and 15 September 2020.

 

            Councillor Mrs Yeates confirmed that there was a slight error in the minutes from the meeting of 24 August 2020 at Recommendation (4) in that the Service Committee set out in the third bullet point should read the Environment and Neighbourhood Services Committee and not the Environment and Wellbeing Service Committee.  It was outlined that Parts 6 to 8 would be considered by the Working Party at its next meeting.

 

            Councillor Mrs Yeates then provided a summary and brief overview of the work undertaken by the Working Party on 17 and 24 August 2020 to assist Members in considering the list of recommendations before them.  A summary of the verbal report made has been set out below:

 

·         Part 1 – Summary and Explanation – It was explained that a glossary of terms had been drawn up which would be updated as necessary when Parts 6 to 8 of the Constitution were reviewed.

·         Part 2 [Articles of the Constitution], any references to the Cabinet system had been removed and consequential changes made.  At the heart of the Committee system was Article 11 where at Paragraph 3 four types of decision making had been identified being:

 

 

(a)          Decisions reserved to Full Council

(b)         Decisions made by Committees appointed by the Full Council

(c)          Decisions made by Sub-Committees appointed either by the Full Council or a Committee

(d)          Decisions made by Officers

 

·         Part 3 of the Constitution [Responsibility for Functions].  Under the Committee system, little change had been made to Full Council.  Looking at Committees, the new Constitution functions not reserved by Full Council would be delegated to the six Service Committees and no longer to Cabinet.  This section of the Constitution identified the six Service Committees and the four Regulatory Committees.  The role and remit of each of the Service Committees had been fully investigated and debated by the Working Party and the minutes had clearly detailed the key issues detailed below:

·           property matters - property and asset management.  Following full debate, the Working Party had proposed that Asset Management Strategy and the Property Investment Strategy be the responsibility of the Economic Committee.  It had then been suggested that the rational for the division of functions was that the Corporate Committee would be responsible for operational properties and that commercial properties would be the responsibility of the Economic Committee.  An enquiry into how this would work has  ...  view the full minutes text for item 196.

Minutes:

            The Chairman, Councillor Northeast, presented the minutes from the meeting of the Overview Select Committee held on 1 September 2020.

 

            Councillor Northeast confirmed that there was one recommendation for the Council to consider at Minute 172 which was to approve the Committee’s Work Programme for the remainder of 2020/21.  Councillor Northeast formally proposed this recommendation which was seconded by Councillor English.

 

            Councillor Gunner made a statement and asked questions in accordance with Council Procedure Rules 13.1 and 13.2 on Minute 171 [Cabinet Member Questions and Updates] in relation to responses that had been provided by the Leader of the Council, Councillor Dr Walsh and other Cabinet Members as part of that item.  Councillor Gunner referred to a range of issues which he felt were broken election promises made by the Liberal Democrat Group.

 

            Following some discussion and having had a Point of Order raised, the Council returned to consider the vote on Recommendation 171 [Work Programme for 2020/21].

 

                        The Council

            Councillor Gunner made a statement outlining what were in his opinion broken promises made by the Liberal Democrat Group relating to revamping tourism; regeneration options for Bognor Regis; plans to enhance the heritage asset; the future of the Bognor Regis Arcade; and matters relating to Council Tax.

 

            Councillor Dr Walsh responded reminding Councillors that the Council had been dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic for the past six months and that this had had to be the Council’s priority.  He confirmed that the Bognor Regis Town Hall could only be transferred to Bognor Regis Town Council has a sale and that it could not be gifted. Regeneration plans were ongoing for Bognor Regis but had been slowed down due to Covid-19.  Finally, Councillor Dr Walsh confirmed that he was delighted with the cross-party Covid-19 Working Party that had been established by Cabinet to address how the Council would embrace recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic. This had been set up as a joint initiative from himself, as Leader of the Council, the Chief Executive and Councillor Gunner a Leader of the Opposition.

 

            A range of further politically driven and rhetorical questions were asked by Councillors Chapman and Dendle which were responded to. 

 

 

199.

Motions

The following Motions have been received in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 14.1 and 14.2, the details of which are set out below:

 

Motion One

 

This is from the Green and Liberal Democrat Group.

 

The Council declared a Climate Emergency at Full Council in January 2020.  Whilst welcoming much good ecological work that is ongoing, such as tree planting and the planned creation of Green Infrastructure, further action is required.  The Council will review and update the bio-diversity policies within the Local Plan, informed by a new Bio-Diversity Action Plan 2021-2026 to be created.  This Action Plan to include consideration of the following:

 

·         A local Nature Reserve site map, showing existing wildlife areas, parks, green spaces, woods and marine protected and other areas such as churchyards and school fields, to inform new development and ensure habitat is joined up.

·         Reviewing recognised and potential wildlife corridors and areas of protection and looking at ways of joining them to provide wider foraging areas.

·         SPD covering new guidelines for developers on including wild areas and ‘pocket parks’ as part of planting as well as ensuring the areas are maintained.  With such high levels of building, these areas will ensure stepping-stones of bio-diversity across the district.

·         Ensuring the increased planting of wild areas in council owned parks and properties

·         Including information for the public about the purpose and importance of wilding

·         Managing invasive species

·         Promoting opportunities for community engagement for activities such as tree planting and the creation of wildflower areas as well as looking after such spaces

·         Launching a public awareness campaign to encourage and promote wildlife-friendly gardening in the district, including pesticide awareness

·         Setting a target for the council to phase out the use of glyphosates and to join the growing number of councils that are pesticide free

·         Commissioning a report into watercourses and aquifers in the district and strengthening measures to prevent pollution caused by chemicals that leach into the soil and water from farming and run off

 

Motion Two

 

This is from the Conservative Group:

 

This Council recognises the impact Covid-19 continues to have across the District, and in particular the economic uncertainty it has presented. Council notes the continuing opportunity for Bognor Regis to play a major part in the economic growth of the District and the necessary regeneration required to support such growth. 

 

Council believes that the prospects of regeneration of Bognor Regis will be strengthened if proposals are developed through an open and meaningful consultation, and that all prospective developers are given the opportunity to make presentations to the viability of regeneration schemes. 

 

This Council wishes to extend an invitation to the Sir Richard Hotham Project (SRHP), and any other prospective developer to present the merits of their scheme in a presentation, face to face, or virtual, at their earliest convenience. 

 

Officers are instructed to facilitate such arrangements. 

 

Minutes:

Prior to the commencement of this item, the Chairman called a five- minute adjournment.

 

            The Chairman confirmed that two Motions had been received and accepted as valid in accordance with Council Procedure Rules 14.1 and 14.2.

 

            The Chairman confirmed that the first Motion had been submitted from the Green and Liberal Democrat Groups and she invited the proposer, Councillor Ms Thurston to present her Motion.

 

            Councillor Ms Thurston outlined that this Motion had been delayed from the 18 March 2020 Full Council meeting which had been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  She emphasised that many people had, during the lockdown period, valued wildlife more with some species benefitting from a pause in human activity, however this had been only been a short pause.

 

            This Motion was very timely as the UN’s report on Biodiversity had just been published and recent television programmes starring David Attenborough had addressed the real threat that some plants were threatened with extinction which was a major concern.  This confirmed that the United Kingdom was one of the more nature depleted countries in the world with over half of its species being in decline caused by climate change, a loss of habitat and due to the impact of infrastructure and road building on natural habitats.

 

            The Council’s Local Plan stated that it would protect the District’s land however it was currently the case that many examples were being overridden by conflicting demands – all too often a wildlife site was marooned and surrounded by development impacting local species.  Arun was an area that was lucky to have rare chalk streams and sites of specific scientific interest as well as traditional farmland and a beautiful coastline. At the same time, more and more pressure was being put onto the Council to build on some of these areas and this threat would continue to increase.

 

            This Motion sought to raise the profile of biodiversity moving forward and it sought to ensure that part of the work that the Council would be undertaking in addressing its climate emergency would seek to protect and enhance natural habitats. The Government’s Environmental Bill recognised some of these problems and proposed a Nature Recovery Strategy together with funding for local authorities to protect biodiversity.  If accepted, the Motion would put the Council into a good position to start work and when funding became available. 

 

            A lot of work had commenced but the Motion would bring the objectives that the Council needed to achieve together in the form of a Biodiversity Action Plan. 

 

            Councillor Mrs Staniforth then seconded the Motion.

 

            The wording of the Motion has been set out below:

 

The Council declared a Climate Emergency at Full Council in January 2020.  Whilst welcoming much good ecological work that is ongoing, such as tree planting and the planned creation of Green Infrastructure, further action is required.  The Council will review and update the bio-diversity policies within the Local Plan, informed by a new Bio-Diversity Action Plan 2021-2026 to be created.  This Action Plan  ...  view the full minutes text for item 199.
