Deputation from Unison in relation to Item 10

 

Unison, represented by Sean Fox, welcomed Item 10, the Award of Contract for Home Support and Reablement Bundled Hours, which would see care workers become recipients of the London Living Wage (LLW).

 

The deputation welcomed this report, which ended an historic campaign that began in 2016 when Unison became aware of the poor hourly rates paid to care workers. Unison had sought to challenge this matter through the legal system but recognised that the most effective way to achieve the desired outcome was to work with the Council in bringing about change. The deputation praised the report and noted it would benefit over 800 care workers. They  felt that the report dealt once and for all with zero-hour contracts and responded to the unacceptable treatment of care workers. The report would allow those who provided care, many working in the borough, with a better quality of life.

 

Unison was proud to have worked with the Council and Officers in achieving this milestone and looked forward to working with the Council, moving forward, to ensure that the care workers were paid the LLW.

 

The Leader thanked the deputation and invited the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health to provide a response.

 

The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health thanked the deputation, paying special thanks to Sean Fox and other Unison colleagues for their positive approach in negotiating with the Council on this matter. Their constructive contributions allowed for the progress towards achieving payment of London Living Wage to those providing home support.

 

The Cabinet Member was delighted to be introducing London Living Wage for care workers in Haringey and recognised that this had been long overdue. This commitment was in the Labour Manifesto which stated the Council would achieve LLW for all care workers in Haringey by 2022. The Cabinet Member was pleased this was being progressed in 2020 and highlighted this decision would make a significant difference in quality of care, providing a more stable workforce.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deputation in relation to item 11 - Climate Change Action Plan

 

The Leader invited representatives of Haringey Climate Forum, Helen Mayer and Ahmad from Woodside School to put forward their representations concerning item 11.

 

Ms Mayer began by acknowledging the proud history of the Council for responding to climate issues with early plans for reducing CO2 emissions, and the Pension’s Committee decisions on di-vesment in companies producing fossil fuels. Haringey Climate Forum would be discussing the actions contained in the attached plan more fully at their Forum meeting next week and would provide detailed comments to the Cabinet Members individually. The deputation emphasised  that the Council would need to amplify the messages in the action plan to the wider community and they  would,  as a group, support the report which needed  the commitment and support of every department and service in the whole Council for delivering the required actions.

 

Although some actions seemed controversial, to take these forward required winning support on local neighbourhood issues such  ...  view the full minutes text for item 188.

Scrutiny review on SEND - NON KEY pdf icon PDF 197 KB

[Report of the Director of Children’s Services. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Children and Families]

 

 

This report sets out the proposed Cabinet Response to the recommendations of the Scrutiny Panel on the review of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Chair of the Children and Young People’s Scrutiny Panel introduced the review which was taken forward in response to increasing levels of concern amongst parents and carers regarding support for children and young people with SEND. In view of this being a large and complex area, the panel focussed their attention primarily on Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs and autism, in order to ensure a manageable scope. The review put forward recommendations concerning the long delays for diagnosis and treatment, exclusions of children at SEN support stage, which can be exacerbated by delays in obtaining EHC Plans, supporting parents access support that their children need.  In addition, co-production with parents and carers and a collaborative approach should now be being followed in the design, planning and development of services.

 

The Panel Chair thanked parents for sharing their views and experiences with them and hoped that the review recommendations assisted with making improvements. Cllr Dogan sought further details on the reasons the recommendations which had partially been agreed.

 

The Cabinet Member for Children and Families, commended the Scrutiny Panel for the review and findings. The Cabinet Member commented that the report was extremely helpful, and the outcome of many hours of focused and concentrated work. The recommendations were commented to be pragmatic, positive and helpful in supporting the programme of improvement currently underway in the SEND service.

 

The Cabinet Member gave a commitment to work with my fellow members, with officers and with all families to ensure that the recommendations were implemented, and that families would see and feel the benefits.

 

In conclusion, the Cabinet Member welcomed the work of AMAZE in consulting with parents, carers, families and partners in creating an active and broad borough-wide parent/carer forum to support co-production.

 

In response to questions from the Scrutiny Panel chair, the following information was noted:

 

  • With regards to the response to recommendation 12, although, at the scrutiny review stage the service had been under pressure with a shortage of educational psychologists, there was now a full complement and no need to access funding in relation to this.
  • In relation to recommendation 9, the basic principles of this recommendation which were focussed on inclusion, were agreed with. There was a later report on this Cabinet agenda setting out plans for Alternative Provision. The Cabinet Member shared the aim of enabling pupils with SEN access mainstream education.
  • Recommendation 12  - engagement was  constantly continuing with special needs school and  the Cabinet Member  and been to parent groups to consider the  issues raised on co-production .The Cabinet  Member agreed  that everything had to be routed in joint working.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

 

  1. To note the Overview and Scrutiny Report on SEND (attached at Appendix 1).

 

  1. To agree the responses to the Overview and Scrutiny report recommendations (attached as appendix 2)

Award of contract for Home Support & Reablement bundled hours pdf icon PDF 410 KB

[Report of the Director of Adults and Health. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health]

 

This report details the outcome of a mini-competition process conducted via the Council’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) Supplier Agreement for Home Support and Reablement Services and seeks approval to award a ‘Call-Off contract to the successful tenderers.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health introduced this item which detailed the outcome of a mini-competition process conducted via the Council’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) Supplier Agreement for Home Support and Reablement Services and seeks approval to award a Call-Off contract to the successful tenderers.

 

The Cabinet Member was delighted to present this report, which was an important step in a process to transform home support in Haringey, recognising the critical role it plays in enabling people to live in their homes for as long as possible.

 

The Cabinet Member highlighted that by offering London Living Wage to all front-line care workers, the Council was honouring its commitment to the Ethical Care Charter and recognising the importance of care workers – their status and their value – in the delivery of home support. Likewise, the Council were recognising that for the majority of people the experience of home support was their experience of social care – representing a real opportunity to make the necessary changes when people were at their most frail and vulnerable.

 

The Cabinet Member closed by thanking Unison and Officers for all of their hard work in achieving LLW for care workers in the borough.

 

In response to questions from Councillors Ogiehor, the following information was provided:

  • There would be no reduction in the time spent caring for people as a result of this contract.
  • The rates paid for direct payments would be paid to reflect LLW, which would be monitored. The expectation was that all care workers would be paid at least the LLW.
  • Officers noted that the Council would be monitoring the contract closely to ensure that care quality was maintained. If there were concerns with the performance of the contract, the Council would work closely with the contractor to make the required care quality improvements.

 

Officers would confirm in writing the timescale and procedure for a breach of contract.

 

Further to considering exempt information at item 38,

 

RESOLVED

 

1.  To approve the award of ‘Call-Off’ contracts for bundled hours of Home Support and Regalement services to the successful tenderers (identified in          the exempt appendix of this report) for a period of (3) three years with an          option to extend for further period of up to 2 years, commencing from 1st         April 2020 to 31 March 2025 (if extended) at the maximum cost of      £12,449,500 inclusive of LLW for financial 20/21 but exclusive of annual      inflationary increase for subsequent years.

 

2.  To vary the contract price annually in line with London Living Wage (as published by the Living Wage Foundation periodically) inflationary increase     from 1st April for each and every subsequent year for the term of Service Agreements; and

 

3.  To note that not all bids received were fully compliant in order to award the       full capacity for each of the localities and that home support therefore will             continue to be covered directly from the DPS

Haringey Climate Action Plan pdf icon PDF 412 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability]

 

This report seeks Cabinet to agree the launch and publication of the Haringey Climate Change Action Plan.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability introduced the report which set out the ambition and the actions required to make the Borough net zero-carbon by 2041. The Cabinet Member stressed that doing nothing was no longer an option. This was a climate emergency and the last opportunity to make a difference. The Council could not achieve these targets alone as it was only responsible for 8% of emissions. There was a need to change hearts and minds.

 

In response to questions from Cllr Ogiehor the following was noted:

 

  • The Cabinet Member agreed investigate the reasons for some lights being left on in River Park House during the evenings and provide a response.
  • The Head of Carbon Management would provide Cllr Ogiehor a written response to the level of di-vesments in fossil fuel by the Council’s Pension Fund. This was thought to be 75% but there would be clarification sought from the Pensions Team.
  • With regards to consideration of a work place levy, and considering the ‘Nottingham Model’ that this question alluded to, the main factor was that the Council did not own many carparks to instigate this. Taking this forward would mean potential extra charge for Councils’ own car parks used by employees so the Council would in a sense be charging itself which was not appropriate. The strategy being followed was to disincentives employees’ use of cars to deter use of car parks.
  • Noted that charging points for electrical cars in the borough only provided renewable green sources of energy but the Cabinet Member would explore the issue raised regarding mandating the use of  green renewable energy sources for charging given the issues concerning the cost of electric car batteries.

 

RESOLVED

 

 

  1. To agree to publish the draft Haringey Climate Change Action Plan to consult with residents, businesses and other stakeholders who can discuss and gain an understanding of the actions to be taken, before refining and adopting the final Climate Change Action Plan in late 2020;

 

  1. To agree that the Action Plan will be reported back to Cabinet by November 2020;

 

  1. To commit to the Council to start working now towards becoming a net zero carbon Council, and for all core Council buildings and the fleet to be net zero carbon by 2027;

 

  1. To agree to start work now on lobbying national and regional government, as set out in the Action Plan, to ask for greater powers and access to finance to increase the rate of carbon reduction;

 

  1. To agree that the Council will continue to report progress against the final Action Plan through the Haringey Annual Carbon Report.

 

Reasons for decision

 

Delivering a net zero carbon borough by 2050 is an objective in the Borough Plan 2019-23. However, in light of the new scientific evidence published in the report Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2018), Full Council in March 2019 agreed to declare a climate emergency, and to review this date for delivery with  ...  view the full minutes text for item 192.

2019/20 Budget Update pdf icon PDF 4 MB

[Report of the Director of Finance. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration]

 

This report will provide an update on the Quarter 3 budget monitoring and will seek approval for any budget changes required to respond to the changing financial scenario and the delivery of the MTFS.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration introduced the report which provided an update on the Quarter 3 budget monitoring and sought approval for any budget changes required to respond to the changing financial scenario and the delivery of the MTFS.

 

The Cabinet Member was pleased to be able to report that the General Fund budget position now presented had remained stable for the third quarter and delivery of agreed savings remains in a more robust position. The Cabinet Member outlined that this was due to the decisions taken when setting this year’s budget which sought to ensure that it was set to be as realistic as possible within the overall available resource envelope. Furthermore, the two most significant drivers of the reported overspend at quarter three had been recognised and addressed in the 2020/21 Budget recently approved by Full Council.

 

The Cabinet Member advised that, despite this positive direction of travel, this still left a, not insignificant, £5.5m forecast overspend on the General Fund. He stressed to officers and Lead members the need to actively focus on identifying options to bring the overall General Fund budget back to a balanced position by the end of the year. To optimise the resilience of the 2020/21 Budget, the Council must do all it can to balance this year’s budget without the need to draw down on reserves.

 

The Cabinet Member informed that the forecast DSG outturn had worsened by £0.3m since his last report. This continues to be a matter of real concern and pressure continues to be put on Government to recognise this issue and come forward with a sustainable solution. As outlined in the report, it was hoped to have some feedback from the DfES however, it still did not provide the full clarification on what is required in terms of a permanent resolution of the funding shortfall nor the proposal to address the deficits. Again, the Cabinet Member hoped to be able to provide a more favourable update in the next report.

 

In response to questions from Councillors Ogiehor, the following information was provided:

·         The Cabinet Member noted that corporate solutions were contingency measures by which the Council could put in place to deal with financial issues that arose with the budget.

·         Regarding the underspend in table 4 on page 202, the Cabinet Member noted this was due to a delay in implementing projects. The underspend would be addressed once the Council began to deliver the projects. However, some of the delays to projects were caused by contractors but the Council had to ensure that the money was available for when those projects commenced.

·         Regarding the £1.1 million underspend in IT Digital Services, Officers noted this was as a result of a number of budgets coming back to the Council following the Shared Digital project not going ahead

High Road West Scheme - next steps for consultation on resident offers and Local Lettings Policy pdf icon PDF 369 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Housing and Estate Renewal]

 

This report seeks approval to consult on the offers to existing residents which would form part of the scheme, namely benefits for secure tenants and non-secure tenants in temporary accommodation through a proposed Local Lettings Policy, and a proposed Leaseholder Offer.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Housing and Estate Renewal introduced the report which sought approval to consult on the offers to existing residents which would form part of the scheme, namely benefits for secure tenants and non-secure tenants in temporary accommodation through a proposed Local Lettings Policy (Appendix 1), and a proposed Leaseholder Offer (Appendix 2).

 

The Cabinet Member highlighted that since 2018, this Cabinet has been working to deliver more Council owned social rent homes and to make Haringey a fairer and more equal place. As part of this drive, the Council have worked to refocus the High Road West Scheme so that it provides a significant increase in Council homes and to ensure that those affected by the scheme are given support, choice and fair rehousing options.

 

The Cabinet Member felt that the offers described in this report are positive and fair. It was fully understood that tenants and leaseholders have concerns about their current and future homes and have built relationships in the area as friendships, local ties and the local community have grown. The Council was responding to these concerns and aspirations through these offers, recognising the varying needs and with an emphasis on affordability which will provide residents with the choice of new homes that they need.

 

The Cabinet Member underlined that the Council wanted to hear views from the community through an open and robust consultation process and were committed to putting residents at the heart of the High Road West Scheme. Also, through past engagement and consultation the Council had demonstrated their commitment to meet residents’ aspirations - such as the Council remaining the landlord of the replacement homes, developing a more generous offer for resident leaseholders, seeking leaseholders’ views on the consultation questions and having a different approach to the valuation process. Residents have contributed towards the various rehousing guides, the Resident Charter, Resident Design Guide, ERRPP and the ownership of the replacement homes consultation. This next step would go even further towards honouring commitment to put residents at the heart of change in their neighbourhoods.

 

The Cabinet Member added that the proposals set out in the report were still subject to the conclusion of discussions with the GLA regarding the funding of High Road West and the Council wold not proceed to the consultation and residents’ ballot until that funding was in place, but in the meantime were keen to understand residents’ views about the proposals.

 

In response to questions from Cllr Brabazon and Cllr Ogiehor, the following information was provided:

 

  • With regards to the timeline for instigating the consultation which was dependent on the GLA’s decision on funding the High Road West Scheme, the date for this was not yet known given that the pre -election period was approaching it was important for the Council to set out its offer for residents in the scheme and be in a position to proceed to consultation once the decision was made.

Insource Action Plan pdf icon PDF 295 KB

[Report of the Director for Customers, Transformation and Resources. To be introduced by the Leader of the Council]

 

This report sets out: progress to date on insourcing initiatives; the approach to insourcing services; the decision making in relation to a service delivery model; and the resourcing strategy for supporting insourcing initiatives.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Leader of the Council introduced this report which set out: progress to date on insourcing initiatives; the approach to insourcing services; the decision making in relation to a service delivery model; and the resourcing strategy for supporting insourcing initiatives.

 

The Leader described the mass outsourcing of Council services as a historic mistake and the Council had given up an enormous opportunity to create opportunities. There was no guarantee that contracted-out services would create these opportunities. Their incentives were to prioritise short-term profit rather than long-term social value. That was why the Council had introduced an Insourcing Policy in the autumn, making clear that services will be brought back in-house unless there was a very good reason not to. The Council had already moved to bring in facilities management, highways engineering and some care services. A total of 25 contracts were currently in the process of being insourced.

 

The Leader highlighted that the Council was launching this Insourcing Action Plan so that the Council could go further in a transparent and clear way. There was a need to build up the Council again, expanding and training-up staff to take over from contractors. In some cases, works may be so small or so specialised that it does not make sense for the Council to take them on but in-house provision was the now default position. In the Leader’s view there was a need to restore democratic oversight to local services and to start to rebuild the local economy.

 

The Leader closed by noting that austerity significantly impacted on the Council’s spending power. He expressed that through insourcing residents would gain better value for money.

 

In response to questions from Councillors Ogiehor, the following information was provided:

  • The Leader welcomed the prospect of the Council’s scrutiny panels providing independent views on whether the insourced services had led to improvement in performance and value.
  • Regarding the number of insourced projects, the Leader noted the Council was managing this in a way that different parts of the organisation could provide insourced services safely and efficiently and also ensure that they were financially viable.
  • Regarding bringing the recruitment contract in-house, the Leader noted no regrets with regard to any of his past voting and recognised that sometimes it was necessary to make decisions at a later date to maximise achievable benefits. The Leader further advised that it had not been previously possible to discontinue with the existing recruitment contract.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

  1. To note progress made to date in relation to additional services coming back in-house set out at appendix 2;

 

  1. To approve the recommended approach methodology outlined in Appendix 1

 

 

Reasons for decision

 

Direct delivery remains the Council’s preferred model of service delivery, in line with the administration’s political priorities. The report sets out how services will be reviewed with the preferred outcome that they be brought in-house to a direct or hybrid service model on a sustainable and legal basis.

Transfer of Cleaning Services to Haringey Council pdf icon PDF 368 KB

[Report of the Director of Customers, Transformation and Resources. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration]

 

This report seeks Cabinet to approve the amendment of the FM Operating Model to transfer Cleaning directly to the Council, rather than HfH, as part of the insource of FM services from Amey on 1st April 2020.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration introduced the report which sought transfer of the Cleaning to Environment and Neighbourhoods Directorate within the Council. This was in line with the Council’s Insourcing objective and staff would have improved terms and conditions and were mainly members of staff protected by equality act.

 

In response to a question from the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, the decision affected specifically cleaning staff and they would be transferring to the Council by 1st of April. The other remaining part of the FM services were to be managed by Homes for Haringey. With regards to contracted staff working on concierge and security services, there was ongoing discussion on the cost and understanding sought on whether these were feasible areas to transfer. The Guarding services was provided a local run company located in the borough.

 

RESOLVED

 

To approve the direct transfer of the Cleaning Services to the Council when the Facilities Management Services are insourced from Amey Community Limited on 1st April 2020.

 

Reasons for decision

 

After Cabinet Decision in July 2019, joint mobilisation planning for the FM insource was undertaken with Homes for Haringey to prepare in for the transfer of all FM functions.

 

From these discussions it became apparent that the original intention for HfH to take cleaning would have possible implications as far as;

 

  • Increase risk relating to HfH capacity to manage the take on of the Cleaning service given the need to prioritise ‘Hard’ FM services
  • HfH do not have existing management capacity within their current business model to manage a cleaning service
  • Environment and Neighbourhoods have experience successfully managing operational services for the Council
  • An interim FM Manager is being recruited within Environment and Neighbourhoods to manage the transfer of the cleaning service.

Improving the cleanliness of key buildings is a key priority going forward to improve the environment for service users and staff.

The diagram below displays the updated Operating Model with cleaning transferring to the Council:

 

 

Alternative options considered

 

Remain with current provider – not possible as the contract for FM services provided to Haringey terminates on 31st March 2020.

 

Transfer Cleaning to Homes for Haringey – this would split the core ‘Hard and ‘Soft’ FM services and result in increased risk to operational success due to a lack of defined management capacity within Homes for Haringey.

Alternative Provision pdf icon PDF 297 KB

[Report of the Director of Children’s Services. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Children and Families]

 

This report sets out details of proposals for the future model of alternative provision in Haringey and to propose a number of recommendations in order to take forward these proposals.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 [Cllr Mark Blake left the room for this item 19.53]

 

The Cabinet Member for Children and Families introduced this report which set out details of proposals for the future model of alternative provision in Haringey and to propose a number of recommendations in order to take forward these proposals. Additionally, as a result of this report, the Pupil Referral Unit would be brought back in house.

 

The Cabinet Member was delighted to present this paper and the accompanying model for change which sets out a strategic, partnership and transformational approach to meeting the needs of children and young people in Haringey. Based on local and national work on alternative provision, and increasingly informed by the voices of children, young people and parents themselves, the proposed approach requires change in the short and longer term recognising that a phased approach is needed to ensure that co-design and learning is embedded from the outset.

 

The Cabinet Member noted that the Young People at Risk Strategy recognises that the Council must adopt an early intervention and whole systems approach in order to address some of the complex issues facing children and young people in Haringey. This report and the approach it outlines was within the wider context of that Strategy and its vision to ensure that all children and young people receive the best start in life.

 

Officers added that the report represented a whole systems approach. It was anticipated this would be 5 to 10 years programme of change and this report represented the important first steps.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

1.    To agree the Change Model attached as Appendix A recognising that some elements are for implementation now whilst others require further co-design before being implemented

 

2.    That in order to support the Change Model, to agree:

a.    the use of Stamford Hill School site as the preferred site for the Alternative Provision Hub which will accommodate the co-located Tuition Service and Octagon Pupil Referral Unit from 1st September 2020

b.    to note the application of TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)) to these arrangements

c.    to note the need for a further Cabinet decision to approve the award of contract to carry out the capital works required to ensure the Stamford Hill School site is ready for pupils on 1st September 2020

 

Reasons for decision

 

There are three main drivers for the decisions being proposed at this time.

 

First, the trajectory for pupils permanently excluded from school is poor and there continues to be a disproportionality in the number of Black and Minority Ethnic Pupils being excluded and a seeming overrepresentation of pupils with SEN at risk of exclusion, experiencing a significant number of fixed term exclusion or permanently excluded. The risks of becoming longer term NEETS (not in education or employment) or involved in anti-social behaviour or criminality remain high and present a compelling argument for change. There needs be a real drive to shift the perception of many children, young people, parents/carers, schools and governors from seeing permanent  ...  view the full minutes text for item 197.

Minutes:

 [Cllr Mark Blake returned at 19.56]

 

The Leader of the Council introduced the report which put forward the final report of the Haringey Fairness Commission. This set out the Commission’s recommendations to national government, the Council and other partners, about what they should do to tackle inequality and unfairness in Haringey (and elsewhere).

 

The report marked the culmination of an intensive process as part of which the Council had spoken to more than 1,500 residents, partners and stakeholders about their perceptions and lived experience of inequality and unfairness. The Leader thanked the co-chair, Paul Watt and the other Commissioners, all the people who shared their views in meetings, focus groups or in written submissions. The Leader also thanked all the Commissioners who contributed their valuable time and expertise, and who had helped shape the final report.

 

The Leader commented on the scale and the complexity of some of the issues the Council were seeking to tackle which meant that work to address them would take time, and that sustained effort would be needed for the Council to see the progress aspired to. However, by pulling together and pooling resources and energies, then the borough could start to chip away at the causes of unfairness in the borough.

 

 

RESOVED

 

  1. To receive the Haringey Fairness Commission Report (attached as Appendix 1) and to publicly thank Commissioners for all their hard work and everyone who contributed to the Report.

 

  1. To agree to receive an officer report in the summer setting out the Council’s proposed response to the Haringey Fairness Commission’s recommendations.

 

  1. To note the recommendations to partners, the Mayor and national government set out in the Haringey Fairness Commission report (Appendix A).

 

Reasons for decision

 

The Commission’s final report sets out a series of recommendations to the Council (some of which are also directed at partners, the Mayor and national government). The Council now needs to consider these recommendations, including assessing the resource that would be needed to implement them. This assessment is important in ensuring that implementation plans set out a meaningful set of actions which will help to address the issues of unfairness identified by the Commission, making the best possible use of the Council’s levers, resources, and partnerships.

 

It is proposed that the resulting assessment should come back to Cabinet (in summer) including timescales on which key milestones will be achieved and proposing key performance indicators (KPIs) which can be used to assess progress.

 

The Commission’s final report also sets out a series of recommendations aimed at partners, the Mayor and national government. This report recommends that Cabinet notes these and gives approval for officers to put in place plans for lobbying, campaigning and influencing work related to them which will be set out in the next Cabinet report.

Accept the Commission’s recommendations without a process of assessing implications and strategic opportunities

 

The Council needs to respond to the Commission’s recommendations with a meaningful programme of activity that is reflected in the organisation’s strategic priorities and corporate  ...  view the full minutes text for item 198.

Economic Development Strategy Consultation pdf icon PDF 187 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Local Investment and Economic Growth]

 

 

This report seeks Cabinet to approve the publication of the Economic Development Strategy for consultation.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Local Investment and Economic Growth introduced this report which sought Cabinet approval of the publication of the Economic Development Strategy for consultation.

 

The Cabinet Member was pleased to welcome this report and praised officers for their work on the Economic Development Strategy. This strategy built on the commitments made in Haringey's Borough Plan 2019-23. Community Wealth Building was fundamental to the strategy, which included ensuring every public pound delivered maximum public good.

 

The Cabinet Member highlighted that the Economic Development Strategy focussed on creating a good economy; fairness and equality; business and enterprise resilience; environmental sustainability; and health and well-being. Following a commissioned evidence base, there were four key priority areas identified, these were: business and enterprise; high streets and town centres; employment space and infrastructure; and employment and skills.

 

The Cabinet Member stressed the importance of partnership working with other organisations in the borough.

 

In response to questions from Councillors Ogiehor, the following information was provided:

  • Officers noted that, with regard to expanding and enhancing the commercial portfolio, the Council had recently carried out a review of the Buildings portfolio which formed part of the Asset Management Plan. It was found that in some areas there were options to increase the portfolio. Officers accepted there was a lot of work to do to improve the Council’s portfolio. The majority of investment would go into enhancing property the Council already owned.
  • The Cabinet Member noted there was a Strategic Property Sub-group which routinely discussed the commercial portfolio. He also considered it the Council's duty to be a responsible landlord for the properties it owned in its commercial portfolio.
  • The Cabinet Member noted that if there was widespread support for business rate relief for environmental based businesses that would be looked into.
  • The Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration noted the Council had various ways in which it helped small businesses, such as through the Small Business Rate Relief and Retail Discount Rate Relief. Regarding charities, they had an 80% credit relief.

 

The Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration noted that the Council had a fiduciary duty to collect the business rates owed.

 

RESOLVED

  1. To approve the publication of the Economic Development Strategy for consultation, which focuses on:
    1. Creating a good economy – good work; fairness and equality; business and enterprise resilience; environmental sustainability; and health and well-being.
    2. Four key priority areas – business and enterprise; high streets and town centres; employment space and infrastructure; and employment and skills.

 

Reasons for decision

 

This draft strategy is our framework for economic development in the borough between 2020 - 2035 and sets out how we can shape a good economy for Haringey that works for all, enabling residents to prosper and businesses and high streets to thrive.

 

This vision, for a good economy seeks to move beyond a narrow focus on economic growth, towards a way of thinking about economic development which focuses on whether it supports our residents to live good lives, is fairer, and, whether  ...  view the full minutes text for item 199.

Highways Work Plan 2020/21 pdf icon PDF 745 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods]

 

This report seeks approval of the Highways Works Plan for 2020/21 which sets out the Council’s approach to managing the highways infrastructure, delivering the Borough Plan priorities as well as the Council’s strategies as set out in the Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) and in the Transport Strategy.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods introduced the report which put forward recommendations to facilitate the borough’s aim to have a high quality and safe highway network with a reliable public transport system that everyone can access. This year, in line with the Borough Plan 2019-2023, the report was proposing investing £18,515,000 into a range of highways improvement schemes, making the borough’s streets safer, identifying and improving locations with high accident rates, improving the overall quality of the road network and encouraging walking/cycling and the use of public transport.

 

The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods highlighted the funding for two additional rainbow crossings in the borough. One of the crossings would be located at the Roundway which had historical significance in that it was the location of a march in 1986 supporting LGBT rights.

 

Following questions from Cllr Ogiehor, the following information was noted:

 

  •  That the £1.5m funding for cycle highways infrastructure was dependent on a TFL funding decision and the Cabinet Member shared the frustration with the delay of this funding given the community support obtained to make this and other funding requests. This amount could not be added to the Highways budget, which was for approval, as this this was still to come forward

 

  • The Leader advised that in relation to recommendation 1 – this should read appendix 3 instead of appendix 1 and in relation to recommendation 3, this should be amended to refer to the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods.

 

RESOLVED

 

  1. To approve the Highways Works Plan for 2020/21 financial year as set out in the attached Appendix 3 – Funding by Theme:

 

  1. To authorise the Head of Operations to carry out consultation in accordance with Appendix 4 and to make necessary traffic orders, having had due regard to any prior consultation, to give effect to those schemes in the Highway Works Plan;

 

  1. To authorise the Head of Operations to consider any objections and representations to statutory consultation on schemes and to report back to the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods if there are significant or substantial objections or concerns raised:

 

  1. To delegate decisions relating to scheme design and implementation to the Head of Operations.

 

Reasons for Decision

 

The annual HWP sets out the Council’s Highways, Traffic and Parking projects for the coming financial year and how they align with the Council’s strategic objectives.

 

The report provides detail of the funding arrangements seeks authority to proceed with the development and delivery of these projects subject to appropriate consultation.

 

Alternative options considered

 

No other options were considered. The Council has a statutory obligation to maintain the public highway network. Allocated funding is not sufficient to cover all maintenance requirements therefore this plan prioritises the work that needs to be done. The 2020/21 works plan has been informed by the Council’s Transport Strategy and LIP3, which involved consultation with key stakeholders. The maintenance programme has been prioritised through highway condition surveys, visual inspections, and concerns raised by Elected Members and members of the wider community.

 

The programme includes transport schemes previously agreed  ...  view the full minutes text for item 200.

Making of non-immediate Article 4 Direction to remove permitted development rights for changes of use from office (class B1(a)) to residential (class C3) uses in prescribed areas pdf icon PDF 230 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability]

 

This report recommends the making of a non-immediate Article 4 Direction for growth areas and town centres in the Borough to remove permitted development rights for Office (B1a) to Residential (C3).

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability introduced this report which recommended the making of a non-immediate Article 4 Direction for growth areas and town centres in the Borough to remove permitted development rights for Office (B1a) to Residential (C3).

 

The Cabinet Member noted that the report would prevent offices from being converted into residential units. Such residential units were often of poor standard and the Council was acting to prevent such conversions in growth areas and town centres of the Borough. To prevent any future challenges, the making of the Non-Immediate Article 4 Directions were to be carried out gradually across the borough with this report marking the first step.

 

RESOLVED

  1. To note the regulatory requirements for the making of a new Article 4 Direction, as prescribed by The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015;

 

  1. To note the comments and recommendations of Regulatory Committee of 2 March 2020 regarding this proposed Article 4 Direction;

 

  1. To adopt the justification herein provided to support the making of an Article 4 Direction to remove Office (B1a) to Residential (C3) Permitted Development Rights within Growth Areas, and Metropolitan and District Centres;

 

  1. To approve the making of a non-immediate Article 4 Direction removing permitted development rights for Office (B1a) to Residential (C3) changes of use within Growth Areas, and Metropolitan and District Centres as identified on the Haringey adopted Policies Map as set out in Appendices A and B.

 

  1. To authorise the Director for Housing, Regeneration & Planning to carry out the necessary publicity, notification, consultation and subsequent decision on whether to confirm the Direction, as prescribed by The Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015.

 

Reasons for decision

The Council’s employment planning policies are based on robust evidence which establishes a need to protect employment uses to ensure vitality and viability of the borough’s economy. The permitted development rights undermine the operation of these policies and impact negatively on the provision of employment space and jobs.

The making and confirming of a new Article 4 Direction to restrict offices being converted to homes without Planning Permission in key areas of the Borough will result in some significant benefits. This includes the ability to properly assess any proposals against the Council’s Development Plan with regards to employment and town centre priorities, the quantum and demand for Office floorspace, and any impact on key business sectors to ensure any proposal doesn’t harm the local economy. It will also enable the Council to utilise a Plan Led approach underpinned by robust evidence to come to decisions on such proposals.

Alternative Options Considered

The alternative options available to the Council are: to do nothing; to introduce a Borough wide Article 4 Direction; or, to extend the proposed coverage of the Article 4 Direction to designated Employment Land. The Council could also make the Article 4 Direction immediate rather than non-immediate.

The do-nothing approach has been discounted due to the harm the Permitted Development right is having as outlined in  ...  view the full minutes text for item 201.

Highgate School Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) consultation pdf icon PDF 295 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability]

 

This report introduces a proposed draft Highgate School Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for consultation.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability introduced the report which proposed draft Highgate School Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for consultation.

 

Cabinet noted that the SPD had been developed in partnership with Highgate School, to help give more certainty to the local community about future development in the School’s estate. It is important to recognise that the School’s historic and contemporary buildings make a significant positive contribution to the built environment of the area. The SPD seeks to ensure that the School in keeping with it’s past, continues to show shown great sensitivity in the conservation, repair and enhancement of its built heritage and in its approach to new buildings. It was also important that the School environment is accessible and environmentally sustainable and this SPD sets the framework for doing so.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

 

  1. To note the comments and recommendations of Regulatory Committee of 2 March 2020 regarding this Draft SPD; and

 

  1. To approve the draft Highgate School SPD, attached as Appendix 1, for public consultation in accordance with the Haringey Statement of Community Involvement.

 

 

Reasons for decision

 

To progress the preparation of an SPD. The purpose of the draft SPD is to provide a masterplan and provide guidance on a comprehensive approach for the delivery of new accommodation to meet the long-term needs of the School, and to support enhanced community use and benefits. This SPD will be used by the Council as a material consideration when determining any future planning applications for the School and will help inform any future applicants and local residents.

 

The Council’s adopted Site Allocations DPD envisages the Council adopting an SPD for Highgate School as this is considered to be the most effective way of securing that any future development of Highgate School meet its needs, accessibility requirements and provides for enhanced community benefits, whilst preserving the heritage and amenity of Highgate in line with the adopted Local Plan Site Allocation for the School.

 

Alternative options considered

 

There is one alternative option to the preparation of an SPD which is to do nothing. Notwithstanding the commitment in the Site Allocations Local Plan document to bring forward an SPD for the School, this is an option, albeit with some disadvantages as outlined below.

 

If the ‘do-nothing’ option was continued, Council officers, the Planning Sub-Committee and in the event of appeals, Planning Inspectors, would continue to exercise judgement when making decisions on specific proposals that Highgate School put forward, but without the guidance the SPD would provide. However such an approach may give rise to greater uncertainty and slower decision making, and does not allow for the more strategic consideration of the School’s development as a whole, including giving guidance on key land use principles, notably that of development in Metropolitan Open Land (MOL) and in the curtilage of Listed Buildings.

 

Additionally, such an ad-hoc way of dealing with estate wide issues may not give the local community the overall picture of development intentions in and would not enable the community to comment and input  ...  view the full minutes text for item 202.

DHP Policy 2020-21 pdf icon PDF 177 KB

[Report of the Director for Customers, Transformation and Resources. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Corporate and Civic Services]

 

This report seeks Cabinet to approve the Haringey’s Discretionary Housing Payments Policy 2020/21 as the means by which the Council will determine how the DHP funds will be allocated during the 2020/21 financial year having regard to the Equalities Impact Assessment.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration introduced this report which sought Cabinet to approve the Haringey’s Discretionary Housing Payments Policy 2020/21 as the means by which the Council would determine how the DHP funds would be allocated during the 2020/21 financial year having regard to the Equalities Impact Assessment.

 

The Cabinet Member noted that central government attacks on the living standards and security of the least well off people continue to make the lives of Haringey’s families on low incomes much harder. The report therefore drew members attention to the proposed benefit cuts due to take effect in 2020/21, including the lowered benefit cap, that would significantly reduce the amount of Housing Benefit paid to households that are living in Haringey and/or in temporary accommodation. This would put significant pressure on Haringey’s DHP budget in addition to the ongoing impact of previous ‘welfare reform’.

 

The Cabinet Member highlighted that use of the DHP budget was an important means by which the Council aimed to assist and protect families threatened with homelessness. The Council was seeking to focus on increasing financial resilience and reducing demand for crisis support, aligned with our objective of preventing homelessness and reducing our reliance on temporary accommodation. With the resources at our disposal, Haringey would ensure that the DHP policy for 20/21 was administered in a fair and transparent way. The Council remained committed to doing everything it could to sustain tenancies, prevent homelessness and, where possible, ensure tenants secure more affordable accommodation.

 

In response to questions from Councillors Brabazon and Ibrahim, the following information was provided:

  • Officers noted that information on the policy was publicly available on the Council’s website and on all bills and letters sent out. The Council worked closely with Homes for Haringey and those in temporary accommodation to ensure they were aware of the assistance that was available.
  • Officers informed this was the first time that the DWP had provided extra money to the Council for the provision of its DHP policy.
  • Officers confirmed that the Council was working with third party sectors, including community centres to promote the access to this payment policy.

 

RESOLVED

 

To approve Haringey’s Discretionary Housing Payments Policy 2020/21 (see Appendix A) as the means by which the Council will determine how the DHP funds will be allocated during the 2020/21 financial year having regard to the Equalities Impact Assessment (set out in Appendix B).

 

Reasons for Decision

 

The DHP Policy has to be reviewed and approved every year in line with the changing funding allocated by the DWP.

 

Alternative Options Considered

 

Consideration has been given to the option of continuing with Haringey’s existing DHP Policy. The policy is reviewed each year in line with the new allocation of funding; as such this option is viable.

GLA Good Growth Fund – Adaptive Wood Green and Strategic Investment Pot (SIP) pdf icon PDF 203 KB

[Report of the Director of Housing, Regeneration and Planning. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Local Investment and Economic Growth]

 

This report relates to the Greater London Authority Good Growth Fund (GGF), which was launched in 2017. The Good Growth Fund is Mayor Sadiq Khan's £70 million regeneration programme to support growth and community development in London.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Local Investment introduced the report which sought authority to enter into two grant agreements; one with the GLA in the event of the GGF bid being successful, and the other 3 with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (accountable body for the SIP bid) to accept SIP grant funding.

 

Cabinet noted that the funding would unlock much-needed town centre and public realm improvement projects for Wood Green. It would create opportunities for local residents and businesses to become much more involved in and benefit from the regeneration of Wood Green through meaningful engagement, community empowerment, business training and participatory evaluation.

 

Since publication of the report, the GLA had announced that an in-principle approval has been granted in respect of the request for GLA funding for up to £972,500 of capital funding. This represented a shortfall of £870,000 from the Stage 2 GLA funding request. No formal explanation has been given as yet for the reduction in the grant awarded in the notification notice.

 

The Adaptive Wood Green programme comprised the following elements which are funded by GLA:

·           ‘Empower young people in the creation of youth space,’

·           Making Better Places – ‘Improving Air Quality’

·           Building skills and employability with ‘Changing Gears’

·           ‘Intensify the economy through Adaptive Town Centre strategy’

·           ‘High Street Community Civic Centre’.

 

Improving Air Quality projects GLA funding was also reduced from £520,000 to £400,000.

 

It was noted that the Turnpike Lane Project and the project management cost have been not been supported for funding by the GLA.

 

Officers would discuss the proposal with the GLA in detail and consider how the projects would be delivered. Therefore Cabinet are recommended to agree to:

 

  • Accept the GLA grant allocation of £0.9725m; and to Vire £0.870m from the approved capital programme contingency.

 

Following discussion with Finance and the Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration, it was proposed to allocate £0.87m from the approved capital programme contingency. The approved capital programme contingency currently had an unallocated budget of £1.574m. The allocation from the contingency of £0.87m would reduce the contingency to £0.704m. Whilst this was a relatively small contingency for a capital programme of the size of the Haringey programme, it was very close to the end of the financial year and there are no other known calls on the contingency.

 

Following questions from Cllr Ogiehor, the following information was noted:

 

  • The two schools to access funding from the improving air quality element of funding were expected to be Alexandra Park Primary, and Noel Park primary school and the other three schools were yet to be identified as set out in the report.
  • With regards to the ratio of funding received in relation to population figures, the Council had received positive feedback on the bids and it was important to note that these were widely sought and contested bids in London. The general steer from the GLA was for the Council to focus resources on one single bid. Some Councils had took a risker approach  ...  view the full minutes text for item 204.

Controlled Parking Zone Policy Review pdf icon PDF 254 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods]

 

This report seeks approval to adopt a Controlled Parking Zone Policy. This formalises arrangements that have evolved in recent years, with improved design principles to support cycle parking and spaces for electric vehicles and a built-in review process.  

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods introduced this report which sought approval to adopt a Controlled Parking Zone Policy. This formalised arrangements that had evolved in recent years, with improved design principles to support cycle parking and spaces for electric vehicles and a built-in review process.

 

The Cabinet Member noted that Haringey had been operating CPZ’s in the borough since 1999 with some having not been reviewed since that date. The Council now believed it had a tried and tested process which worked well and this policy formalised that. The policy added a review process which would see all CPZ’s reviewed within 5 years to test that they were still fit for purpose.

 

The Cabinet Member highlighted that the Council would continue to implement CPZ’s by consent of residents. Any changes would also include a consultation with residents. Recent engagement with the Tottenham Jewish Association was highlighted as an example of community involvement. Any changes would only take effect if the majority of residents who responded agreed, unless special circumstances applied.

 

The Cabinet Member closed by noting that a number of residents in the borough had been requesting CPZ and the purpose of the policy was to clarity of the process.

 

In response to a question from Councillors Ogiehor, the Cabinet Member noted the Council did not actively aspire to implement CPZ across the entirety of the Borough, unless that was the will of the residents as indicated through thorough consultation. CPZ’s covered approximately 75% of the borough and the Council would continue to consult with residents to ensure that the CPZ’s in place were desirable and worked for them.

 

RESOLVED

 

To approve the Controlled Parking Zone Policy attached as Appendix 1.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

Parking is an extremely complex issue and plays a dynamic role in the delivery of several of the Councils Strategic Objectives. This reflects the complex and challenging linkages between parking and transport, environmental, economic, health and planning issues. A clear controlled parking zone policy position not only aids the prioritisation of works, but helps decision making, ensuring appropriate linkages to the Council’s Strategic Objectives.

 

Alternative options considered

 

Consideration was given to not revising the policy. As policy had not been revised for years this was not considered to be appropriate.

 

When revising the policy consideration was given to rolling out controlled parking zones in all remaining uncontrolled parts of the borough. This would be more efficient than current arrangements and would also address the issue of displacement. However, residents do not always share the same opinion of controlled parking. Decisions on whether to consult on the introduction of CPZs should remain at local level and be ultimately determined by residents and Ward Councillors.

Parking Charge Review pdf icon PDF 537 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods]

 

This report proposes changes to a range of parking charges including a surcharge on Diesel fuelled vehicles.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods introduced the report which sought a review of parking charges and the amendments proposed in this report are seeking to give effect to the aims and objectives set out in the Transport Strategy and the AQAP, both of which are central to London Mayor’s objectives in improving air quality in Haringey.

 

Cabinet noted that the ULEZ is part of a package of measures that the Mayor was putting in place to tackle the public health crisis created by London’s air pollution.

 

The proposed changes to parking charges contained within the report were also intended to encourage people to prepare in time for the upcoming extension to the ULEZ. The charges have been set at a level to encourage people to make careful decisions when considering a new vehicle and how they contribute to local air quality in Haringey. 

 

It was further noted that when setting and reviewing fees and charges for parking services, the Council would always seek to set a pricing level that balances the needs of businesses and the local economy, with the need to push for that step change away from unnecessary car use to more sustainable modes of travel.

 

Responding to questions from Cllr Ogiehor, the following information was noted:

 

  • The Permit charge increases were being raised proportionately, with the least polluting vehicles raised up to the medium polluting level with an increase of £10  and the medium most polluting vehicles raised up to the top level range, meaning an increase £20. The policy provided the Council’s clear intention of charging drivers more if they drove more polluting vehicles.
  • All polluting vehicles were discouraged and the report supported putting forward charges in line with legislation and the ULEZ scheme.

 

RESOLVED

 

 

  1. To authorise officers to proceed to carry out formal consultation on amending relevant Traffic Management Orders to introduce the charges and surcharges as set out in Appendix 1 of this report and the following changes to parking terms and conditions:
    1. A surcharge on diesel fuelled vehicles
    2. A surcharge on second and subsequent permits per household
    3. Introduce a 25% surcharge on diesel fuelled our on-street pay to park` areas and off-street car parks, as set out in paragraph 6.6.
    4. Implement proposed changes to Visitor Vouchers arrangements as set out in paragraph 6.11.
    5. Provide a free residential parking permit for Disabled Blue Badge Holders to park within their local CPZ for a vehicle registered to them as set out in paragraph 6.13.
    6. Introduce a £20 administration fee on parking permit refunds except for visitor vouchers which shall be non-refundable, as set out in paragraph 6.14.

 

  1. To receive a further report to decide whether to amend the relevant Traffic Management Orders as proposed under recommendation (i) after consideration of the responses to the statutory consultation.

 

Reasons for decisions

 

The Council has committed to acting decisively to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions, which is widely accepted as a contributor to climate change. Those decisions include using parking policies as  ...  view the full minutes text for item 206.

Award of a block contract for the Extra Care provisions pdf icon PDF 214 KB

[Report of the Director of Adults and Health. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health]

 

This report seeks approval for the award of a block contract to One Housing Group (OHG) for a total of 142 extra care units in three Haringey-based schemes at Protheroe House, Lorenco House and Roden Court.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health introduced this report which sought approval for the award of a block contract to One Housing Group (OHG) for a total of 142 extra care units in three Haringey-based schemes at Protheroe House, Lorenco House and Roden Court.

 

The Cabinet Member supported the proposal to establish a block contract arrangement with One Housing Group which will secure capacity for Extra Care provision for older and disabled residents at competitive market rates whilst fulfilling our commitment to the payment of London Living Wage and meeting current inflationary pressures. The proposal would enable specialist provision to be retained locally and be available to Haringey residents enabling them to remain as independent as possible within a structured care environment. The proposal would promote better quality of service provision as it would facilitate the retention of staff within OHG and support their ongoing learning and development to enable them to deal with more complex cases and escalation of need.

 

 

Further to considering exempt information at item 39,

 

 

 

RESOLVED

 

 

  1. To approve, pursuant to the Council’s Contract Standing Order (CSO) 9.07.1(d), the award of a block contract to One Housing Group for the block purchasing of a total of 142 extra care units in three schemes (Protheroe House, Lorenco House and Roden Court: 50, 52 and 40 units respectively) for an initial period of 3 years

 

  1. To approve the costs for the block contract arrangement for the initial period of 3 years of £12m, or £4m p.a.

 

  1. To approve the option to extend the contract for a further 2 years at an additional cost of £9m or £4.5m p.a. for each yearof the extended contract

 

  1. To note total costs of £21m over the life of the contract which would run from 1st April 2020 to 31st March 2025 if the option to extend were taken up

 

Reasons for decision

The Council is committed to paying rates for care compatible with the payment to care workers of the London Living Wage. The Council currently commissions on a spot purchasing basis a total of 142 units in three extra care schemes (Protheroe House, Lorenco House and Roden Court) with OHG. Ten of these units are currently provided as shorter-term intermediate care beds but given demand and the profile of service users over time, all 142 units will be offered as long-term care under the proposed block contract arrangements. By converting the above current arrangements to a long-term block contract, the Council will achieve better value for money for local specialist provision whilst fulfilling the current LLW requirement.

 

Furthermore, the Council has negotiated competitive rates with this supplier as there is a limited market locally. The Council was not in a position to establish a new block contract for the Extra Care provision via an open tender process as there are no provisions of a similar size in Haringey or sub-regionally capable of meeting the requirement to support all current service users  ...  view the full minutes text for item 207.

The Cabinet Member noted the Council was committed to supporting people with a mental health diagnosis, who needed accommodation to help their recovery. Housing Related Support supported a wide range of people to develop independent living skills to aid recovery and enable them to move on to live independently.

 

The Cabinet Member was pleased to support the approach proposed which would see short term extensions to the current arrangements to ensure that the service continues whilst a new model is co-designed with stakeholders before commissioning gets underway for the future.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

  1. To approve in accordance with Contract Standing Order (CSO) 10.02.1(b), the variation and extension of the Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) Contract with the Haringey Citizens Advice Bureaux by extending the life of the Contract for a further period of up to 15 months with effect from 2nd April 2020.

 

  1. That the total cost for extending the Contract across all four geographic lots for the period 2nd April 2020 to 1st April 2021 is £816,000. That approval is granted for extension for up to a further 3 months if required, from 2nd April 2021 to 30th June 2021, at a total of £204,000. The value over the full 15 months, if used, would therefore be £1,020,000.

 

The underwriting of a £55,000 contribution made to the IAG contract by the Better Care Fund, which as yet remains unconfirmed, due to administrative delays beyond the Council’s control. This contingency is recommended to ensure the contract extension is promptly completed and service delivery is maintained, however it has been strongly indicated that this funding will continue into the next year of the contract. If necessary, the contribution will be secured from within the Council’s Housing Related Support budgets.

 

Reasons for decision

 

The provision of high quality and widely accessible information, advice and guidance for local residents, across a range of topic areas and with direct benefit to local communities, is of primary importance to the Council. It is therefore in the Council’s overall interest to agree to an extension of the current contract whilst redesign and commissioning of a new service are completed, which will continue to deliver beneficial outcomes for those residents who need additional support and information.

 

It is proposed that in order to continue to provide the best service for Haringey residents, the extension period will be used to develop and commission a new model of IAG delivery with service users and stakeholders. Whilst performance of the existing service is good, it is recognised that there is always room for adaptations particularly in light of a number of other developments across the borough including the implementation of the Council’s Community Wealth Building Policy and Welcome Strategy,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 208.

Extension of Housing Related Support Contracts-Mental Health-Pathway of Short Term Supported Housing pdf icon PDF 187 KB

[Report of the Director of Adults and Health. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health]

 

This report seeks approval to extend the Council’s contract for the provision of Housing Related Support Mental Health Accommodation provided by St Mungo’s and Sanctuary Housing.  The extension is requested for one year from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.

 The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health introduced this report which sought approval to vary and extend the Council’s contract for the provision of Information, Advice and Guidance services, held by Haringey Citizens Advice Bureaux, for up to 23 months from 2nd April 2020 to 1st April 2022.

 

The Cabinet Member noted the Council was committed to supporting people with a mental health diagnosis, who needed accommodation to help their recovery.

The Cabinet Member was pleased to support the approach proposed which would see short term extensions to the current arrangements to ensure that the service continues whilst a new model is co-designed with stakeholders before commissioning gets underway for the future.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

That pursuant to Contract Standing Order 10.02.1(b), approve to:

 

  1. Extend Sanctuary Housing Association accommodation with forensic provision contract for one year from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021, and vary the contract to provide an annual uplift of £50,000 on the original contract value. The total annual cost of the extension for Sanctuary Housing Association will be £365,934, to include the £50,000 uplift. The total contract cost over the life of the contract will be £1,629,670.

 

  1. Extend St Mungo’s accommodation with 24 hour support and visiting support (Mental Health West) contract for 1 year from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021, and vary the contract to provide an annual uplift of £50,000 on the original contract value. The total annual cost of the extension for St Mungo’s will be £531, 631, to include £50,000 uplift. The total contract cost over the life of the contract will be £2,458,155.

             

Reasons for decision

 

Mental Health supported housing is an important element of the accommodation pathway for people with mental health needs. It is felt to be in the Council’s overall interest to agree an extension for the two contracts as this will enable a review of the existing services and a planned redesign of the whole mental health accommodation pathway to be completed. The mental health accommodation pathway offers a range of options including 24 hour support, forensic, medium support and lower support services offering visiting support as well as the contracts identified here and it is important that services work together to ensure a range of needs can be met. The contracts were awarded from 1 April 2016 for a period of 4 years with the option to extend for a period of 1 year + 1 year.

 

In light of the contribution made by these services to the health and wellbeing of local residents, there is a need to continue to provide a Housing Related Support Service for Haringey residents aged 18 years and over without a break. This will continue to help both to prevent homelessness and to sustain tenancies for vulnerable adults, by supporting them to develop and strengthen the skills and knowledge required to live independently.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 209.

Extension and Variation of the Contract for Children, Young People and Families Substance Misuse Service pdf icon PDF 2 MB

[Report of the Director of Adults and Health. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health]

 

This report seeks agreement from Cabinet for the extension and variation of the contract held by Humankind for the Children, Young People and Families Substance Misuse to enable a one year extension of the contract to  31st March 2021.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Adults and Health introduced the report which sought agreement to the extension and variation of the contract held by Humankind for the Children, Young People and Families Substance Misuse to enable a one year extension of the contract to 31st March 2021. The provider has provided a valuable service with good outcomes for families with substance misuse issues.

 

Cabinet noted the current service Insight Platform plays a central role in identifying substance misuse problems early. For those identified with a problem it provides a whole family service. Its universal level outreach service going into schools, colleges and youth services, last year reached over eight hundred children and young people and four hundred and forty-one parents and families. Its targeted work links into alternative education, early help and the criminal justice youth service. Each year the number of children and young people needing structured help is increasing, last year the service saw two hundred and thirteen young people under 18 years. Outcomes were impressive with 92% leaving the service in a planned way.

 

RESOLVED

To agree to the extension and variation of the contract with Humankind Charity for the provision of Children, Young People and Families Substance Misuse services - as allowed under Contract Standing Orders 10.2.1 (b) for a period of up to 1 year from 31st March 2020 to 1st April 2021 at a maximum value of £285,000. The total cost over the life of the contract is therefore, £570,000.

Reasons for decision

In Haringey, since 2010, Humankind has successfully bid for and run Insight Platform Children, Young People and Families Substance Misuse Service. In 2014, Cabinet awarded a contract to Humankind post an open tender process. Contact performance has been highly satisfactory. It is proposed that Cabinet vary and extend the current contract to enable a further year. An extension and variation would allow Haringey to align this contract with the March 2021 ensuing of the externally funded Innovation Fund Children of Alcohol Dependent Parents project (CADP), which is delivered by Humankind alongside this contract. Alignment would prevent potential disruption to the CADP were Humankind not successful in bidding for the main service. As the CAPD's grant funding is dependent on delivery of key performance indicators the Council would wish to avoid disruption.

There is in place a timetable for the retendering of this contract during the extension period to allow for the award of a new contract from 1st April 2021.

Alternative options considered

The Council is not mandated to provide this service. It could decide to no longer commission this service to its residents. However, there is high demand for this service and no alternative project to refer children, young people and families into. The commissioning of this service is in line with the Council's intention to ensure every child thrives.

The Council could extend the contract for the initial 6 months placed as allowed under the contract in order to out to market. However, a tender process at this time  ...  view the full minutes text for item 210.

Renewal of Alcohol & Dog Control PSPOs pdf icon PDF 244 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Communities and Equalities]

 

This report considers the extension of the existing Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO) for Alcohol & Dog Control, due to expire on the 18th October 2020.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Communities and Equalities introduced the report which sought approval to consult on the extension of the PSPO for the control of alcohol in the Woodside Ward. The proposal was to extend the boundary to include Lordship Lane, Chapmans Green Park and the roads on the periphery of the park to deal with nuisance or problems in a particular area that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life, by imposing conditions on the use of that area, which apply to everyone.

 

Cabinet noted that extending the PSPOs ensured that the Police and the Council have powers under this legislation to deal with anti-social behaviour. These Orders complemented existing powers used to protect and develop a safe clean environment for residents, visitors and businesses.

 

 

RESOLVED

 

 

 

  1. To authorise consultation on extending the 11 PSPOs for the control of alcohol until October 2023

 

  1. To authorise consultation on varying the boundary of the Woodside alcohol PSPO to include Lordship Lane, Chapmans Green Park and the roads directly surrounding Chapmans Green Park

 

  1. To authorise consultation on extending the dog control PSPO until October 2023

 

  1. To authorise consultation on varying the dog control PSPO to impose a new requirement that dog owners produce a device or other means for removing dog faeces when requested by an officer.

 

  1. To note that following the consultation a further report will be submitted to Cabinet for a decision on extending and varying the PSPOs.

 

Reasons for decision

 

Not having valid PSPOs in placewill have an impact on the Police and Council officers ability to enforce drinking and dog-related nuisance across the borough. This may have a detrimental effect on the reputation of the Council by:

  • An increase in dog fouling;
  • Dogs being walked off the lead for example on highways and in cemeteries;
  • Any number of dogs being walked by one person;
  • No way to control dogs causing nuisance, (i.e. requirement to place a dog on a lead);
  • Dogs entering children’s play areas, sports areas and marked pitches; and
  • People drinking alcohol and engaging in behaviour likely to cause nuisance in restricted areas.

 

Alternative options considered

 

Not to consult or renew the PSPOs. This option is not recommended for the reasons highlighted in 4.1. Allowing the PSPOs to lapse without extending them will result in a recurrence of the activities that are detrimental to the quality of life of people who live, visit or work in the areas where the PSPOs can be enforced.

Marsh Lane - relocation of Ashley Road Depot to the new facilities at Marsh Lane pdf icon PDF 190 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods]

 

This report is seeking an approval to appoint a main contractor to develop Marsh Lane site.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

 The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods introduced this report which sought an approval to appoint a main contractor to develop Marsh Lane site.

 

The Cabinet Member noted that in 2014, Haringey Council’s Cabinet made a decision to relocate its current waste management depot from Ashley Road, London N17 9AZ to 85 Marsh Lane, London, N17 0XB. The Council acquired the Marsh Lane site in 2008.

 

The Cabinet Member outlined that not proceeding with the contract would be more expensive than proceeding with the contract. Moving the waste management depot to March Lane allowed the Council the opportunity to develop the Ashley Road site for Council homes. The Ashley Road site was identified as one of a number of Council-owned sites that would enter the Housing Delivery Programme. The programme was supported by a successful GLA Building Homes for Londoners funding bid. The Ashley Road site was named in the bid and allocated funding of £8,800,000. The Cabinet Member considered it would be morally shameful to waste such an opportunity for Ashley Road and noted staff would also benefit from the relocation.

 

In response to a question from the Cabinet Member for Finance and Strategic Regeneration on the speed of delivery of the relocation, this was as fast as the Council was able to do.

 

Further to considering the exempt information at item 40,

 

 

RESOLVED

 

  1. To appoint Contractor A as a main contractor to develop Marsh Lane site as allowed under Council’s Contract Standing Order (CSO) 7.01 b) (selecting one or more contractors from a Framework) and 9.07.1d (all contracts valued at £500k or more may only be awarded by Cabinet) to the contract sum as set out in Part B.

 

  1. To authorise the Council’s Legal Department to issue a Letter of Intent prior to the formal contract signature for 10% of the total contract amount as set out in Part B to allow work to start as soon as possible.

 

  1. To vire the amount set out in Part B of this report from the approved capital programme contingency to the Marsh Lane project.

 

  1. To approve the delegation of the Contingency budget stated in Part B of this report to the Director of Environment & Neighbourhoods after consultation with the Cabinet Member with the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods.

 

Reasons for decision

 

The decision is required in order to conclude the relocation of the services at Ashley Road depot as previously agreed and to release the Ashley Road site for housing development. Additional info is set out in Part B of the report.

 

Alternative options considered

 

An option not to proceed was considered but rejected on the grounds that the current depot configuration and operation (a split site solution with partial operation at Ashley Road and partial operation from Mash Lane) were only contemplated as being temporary. If the depot is not fully relocated the services being operated there will continue to be more expensive than being located together. Also, the current configuration will not be able to respond to the Climate Emergency  ...  view the full minutes text for item 213.

The Award of Highways Contract Arrangements pdf icon PDF 123 KB

[Report of the Director of Environment and Neighbourhoods. To be introduced by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods]

 

This report seeks the approval to award a Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works Contract for an initial term of five years, with an option for a two year extension period; thereby the maximum term of the contract being seven years.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods introduced the report which sought approval to award a Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works Contract, in accordance with CSO 9.07.01(d) for an initial term of five years, with an option for a two year extension period; thereby the maximum term of the contract being seven years. The maximum value of the contract was proposed to be £84 million, if the contract remained in existence for the maximum seven-year term.

 

Cabinet noted that maintaining and improving the road network played a key role in enabling the achievement of wider economic aspirations for the borough. The contract has been drafted in a flexible way which allowed integration of a potential in-house maintenance service or other alternative arrangement arising out of operational changes, throughout the contract period without penalty.

 

In response to questions from Cllr Ogiehor,

 

  • With regards to quality assurance queries, the Cabinet Member was happy to receive details of perceived issues with contracted works and would raise these through the quality assurance process.
  • It was reiterated that this contact was for a maximum price of £84m but this did not mean that the Council would spend up to this amount. This figure was included to deter the need to go back to Cabinet should a maximum price be reached.

Further to considering exempt information at item 41,

 

RESOLVED

  1. To approve pursuant to Contract Standing Order 9.07.01(d) the award of a contract for Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works to Bidder H1 (identified in the exempt part of the report), for an initial five (5) year term, commencing no later than 1st July 2020 with an option to extend (at the Council’s absolute discretion as contained with the terms and conditions of the Contract) for a further two years.

 

  1. To note that further work is being carried out to ascertain the level of future funding for highways maintenance and footways improvement works.

 

  1. To note the development of a business cases to support the expansion of the maintenance programme and to consider the establishment of a Direct Services Organisation to provide part or all of the maintenance works in order to build resilience and increase responsiveness of the delivery.

 

Reasons for decision

Officers have undertaken a competitive tendering exercise, in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015, in relation to Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works Contract. Through this process Bidder H1 submitted the Most Economically Advantageous Tender, and therefore, in compliance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015, can be awarded the Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works Contract.

The delivery of Highway Maintenance and Minor Improvement Works, both planned and reactive, contribute to the delivery of a number of Council priorities, as well as supporting the Council in complying with its statutory duties arising out of the Highways Act 1980 and Traffic Management Act 2004.

Alternative options considered

Haringey must continue to carry out its statutory duty to maintain the highway network so that they remain safe for road users whilst this review takes  ...  view the full minutes text for item 214.
