1.    From Cllr Williams to Cllr Ibrahim

Would the Cabinet Member like to explain what the Council is doing to ensure the safety of residents in Tangmere and Northolt?


2.    From: Cllr Barnes to Cllr Ibrahim

At Cabinet on 26 June 2018, it was stated that there are 85 vacant Council properties, almost enough for the 89 families in Tangmere. However, this appears to exclude provision for non-Council tenants of Tangmere and all of the residents in Northolt. What is the plan for rehousing those residents either temporarily or longer term while the blocks are strengthened or rebuilt?


3.    From Cllr Carlin to Cllr Brabazon

How do you see the Fairness Commission aligning with the policymaking mechanisms of the Council?


4.    From: Cllr Palmer to Cllr Brabazon

Given recent notable cases of customer dissatisfaction with Fusion’s running of leisure facilities including poor customer service, dirty and broken equipment and facilities, inefficient communication and engagement and an apparent lack of interest in feedback, what additional steps will the Council be taking to ensure paying customers receive an acceptable quality of service?


5.    From Cllr Amin to Cllr Mark Blake

Would the Cabinet Member like to elaborate on their voluntary sector engagement strategy to combat Youth Violence?



6.    From: Cllr Morris to Cllr Ibrahim

Please provide a) a best estimate for spending by the Council on work to date on the Haringey Development Vehicle and b) the projected costs of terminating the contract with Lendlease (including any outstanding contractual liabilities that will need to be honoured).

Motion B: Becoming a Living Wage Employer

Proposer:  Cllr Barnes


Seconder:  Cllr Dixon


Council notes:

The Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings by the Office of National Statistics, showed that 34% of Haringey residents are living in poverty.


That the Living Wage Foundation recommends that to enable their employees to “meet their basic needs and participate in society at a minimum level”, employers in London should pay each member of staff at least £10.20 an hour.


That six current members of Haringey Council (including the Leader) attended an event organised by Citizens UK and pledged to make Haringey Council a Living Wage accredited employer.


That 92 local authorities are accredited Living Wage employers. Among their number are the GLA and six of the seven boroughs that border Haringey.


That Haringey has just 20 businesses that are London Living Wage accredited compared to 132 in Islington and 80 in Hackney.


Council believes:

That low pay is a major problem in Haringey, London and the UK.


That given the high costs of housing, public transport and childcare in Haringey, the statutory minimum wage rates are not adequate to enable someone to maintain a decent standard of living whilst residing in this borough, even if they work full-time.


That as the local authority, Haringey Council should provide leadership and set an example for other employers in the borough.


Council resolves:

To be accredited by the Living Wage Foundation as ‘Living Wage Employer’ in time for London Living Wage week (4th-10th November 2018). In order to achieve this, all directly employed staff must continue to be paid above the London Living Wage. In addition, arrangements must be made for the phased implementation of the London Living Wage for anyone employed by a contractor who regularly works on council premises or on premises necessary for the work of the council to be carried out.

That the same standard should be expected of ALMO and other entities, over which the Council has control (for example, the proposed wholly owned company for housing development).


That where the Council has representation on outside bodies, it should use that influence to advocate for paying a Living Wage.



Motion C: Fair Funding for Haringey Council


Proposer: Cllr Moyeed

Seconder: Cllr James

This Council notes:

A recent report commissioned by the Local Government Association (LGA), ‘Local Government Funding, moving the conversation on’, outlines the significant challenges that Local Authorities face as a result of eight years of cuts to local government funding, forced through by the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition and the current Conservative Government.

These cuts equate to a ‘reduction to core funding from the Government of nearly £16 billion over the preceding decade’, with Councils losing ‘60p out of every £1’ that ‘the Government had provided to spend on local services in the last eight years’.

In Haringey, these cuts mean a 40% real term reduction in Government funding since 2010.

Simultaneously, central Government is intending to reduce the funding for Public Health by  ...  view the full agenda text for item 14.
