12/06/2024 - Proposed Changes to the Officer Scheme of Delegation ref: 3855    Recommendations Approved

To agree the delegation of Executive functions set out in the revised Joint Officer Scheme of Delegation and Proper Officer Scheme

Decision Maker: Executive

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Executive

Decision published: 12/06/2024

Effective from: 20/06/2024

Decision:

Decision:

1.   That the delegation of Executive functions set out in the revised Joint Officer Scheme of Delegation and Proper Officer Scheme (Appendices1 and 3) be approved; and

2.   that the Monitoring Officer, in consultation with the Leader, Deputy Leader, and Portfolio Holder, be authorised to include any changes to the Scheme of Delegation in respect of Executive functions recommended by the Corporate Governance & Standards Committee at its special meeting on 1 July 2024.

Reason(s):

1.       An officer scheme of delegation and proper officer scheme which is materially the same for both Councils, whilst being owned by each Council in respect of their services, will help to promote more efficient joint working and will support the transformation programme by aligning officer decision making across both Councils.

2.       The recommended changes will improve the governance procedures for each Council and will ensure that there is greater transparency over decision making.

3.       The reductions in financial limits will ensure that key decisions are made by the Executive, thereby promoting accountability and transparency.

4.       Aligning officer delegations into a joint scheme, supports the Councils Collaborative and Transformation programme and provides clarity for those officers employed to provide a joint service across both Councils.

Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:

1.       Suggest amendments to the delegation of Executive functions set out in the draft Officer Scheme of Delegation and Proper Officer Scheme, or

2.       Choose not to recommend that a revised Officer Scheme of Delegation and Proper Officer Scheme be adopted.

Details of any conflict of interest declared by the Leader or lead councillors and any dispensation granted:

12/06/2024 - Executive Appointment to Outside Bodies: Thames Basin Heaths Joint Strategic Partnership Board ref: 3856    For Determination

Decision Maker: Executive

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Executive

Decision published: 12/06/2024

Effective from: 20/06/2024

Decision:

Decision:

That the Executive approves the appointment of the Portfolio Holder for Planning to the Thames Basin Heaths Joint Strategic Partnership Board and the Portfolio Holder for Climate Change and Environment as deputy appointee until the next review of appointments to external organisations in 2027.

Reason(s):

It is important that the council has an appointee to the JSP to represent the borough. Every ward overlaps with one or more of the following: the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area (“the SPA”), the SPA 400m exclusion zone, the SPA 4-5km zone (where the impact of new homes must be mitigated), and 7km zone (where the impact of larger residential schemes may need mitigation).

The Portfolio Holder for Planning is the correct councillor to appoint to the JSP for reasons of relevance, and seniority to work with partner agencies to maintain the long-term protection of the SPA.

Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:

To appoint a member other than the Portfolio Holder for Planning or not to appoint a councillor to the JSP at all.

Details of any conflict of interest declared by the Leader or lead councillors and any dispensation granted:

None.

12/06/2024 - Local Code of Conduct - Disclosable Pecuniary Interest ref: 3848    Information Only

Decision Maker: Executive

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Executive

Decision published: 12/06/2024

Effective from: 12/06/2024

12/06/2024 - Riverside - Nature Reserve SANG improvement ref: 3851    Recommmend Forward to Council

To approve capital expenditure of £1,133,500 from existing SANG budgets for replacement and improvement of the SANG access infrastructure at Riverside Nature Reserve and Parsonage Water Meadows, and to create additional staff resource of one Project Manager Post for project delivery.

Decision Maker: Executive

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Executive

Decision published: 12/06/2024

Effective from: 20/06/2024

Decision:

Decision:

That this Executive recommends to full Council meeting on 23 July 2024 the approval of:

1     Capital expenditure of £1,133,500 from existing development contributions to improve SANG capacity and improvement of the SANG access infrastructure at Riverside Nature Reserve and Parsonage Water Meadows, and

2     an additional staff resource of one Project Manager Post for project delivery.

Reason(s):

1.            Officers consider the project proposal the most efficient option to maintain SANG capacity to mitigate the recreational pressure resulting from the developments the SANG contributions have been collected from.

2.            The project will deliver necessary works to achieve health and safety compliance under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957.

3.            The delivery of the project will provide added benefits to the Council by demonstrating compliance with the public duties for biodiversity under the Environment Act 2021 and the duties under the Equality Act 2010.

Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:

1.       Do essential safety works only when they occur:

Officers consider that this approach would put the Council at risk of not providing mitigation in perpetuity in accordance with the reason for the payment of the contributions and would not mitigate the recreational pressure resulting from development.

Reason: Significant infrastructure replacement is currently required to fulfil the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 and SANG requirements representing approximately 90% of the cost estimate. Officers consider this approach would carry a risk of insufficient resourcing to deliver the infrastructure replacement in the required timescale, putting the Council at risk of repayment of developer contributions.

2.       Do nothing:

Do nothing will eventually require the Council to close sections of the SANG for safety reasons resulting in non-compliance with the Habitats Directive, and risk of developers seeking repayment of contributions.

Details of any conflict of interest declared by the Leader or lead councillors and any dispensation granted:

Councillor Potter declared a non-pecuniary interest against Item 5 as the Riverside SANG was part located in the ward he represented. Councillor Potter confirmed this would not affect his objectivity in determining the matter.
