14/07/2020 - Updates from Cabinet Portfolio Holders and Assistant ref: 272    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Children & Young People Overview & Scrutiny Committee

Made at meeting: 14/07/2020 - Children & Young People Overview & Scrutiny Committee

Decision published: 14/10/2020

Effective from: 14/07/2020

Decision:

Ian Budd, Assistant Director - Education Services confirmed the following –

 

·         The Socialisation Offer is ready to go live.

·         The Family Information Service (FIS) has produced a programme of “safe” activities for the summer holidays ahead of schools starting in September 2020.

·         Amended guidance has been produced for schools to make the necessary adjustments for activities during the school holidays.

 

In relation to school transport, officers are working on the assumption that services will be provided as normal in September 2020.  There is no information as to what parents are planning to do with regards to school transport at this point.  It was noted that many parents may not have yet decided. There are weekly meetings with school leaders to discuss arrangements for school transport.

 

It was confirmed that levels of usage on school transport will be monitored on a week by week basis.  It was also confirmed that there will be a review into alternative routes to school as there is an expectation that the first week back in September will see an increase in cars on the road.

 

Following a question from Councillor Jonathan Chilvers, it was confirmed that some schools have requested zones to be put in place around school entrances and exits to allow for wider start/finish times and to ensure physical measures are in place to support social distancing.

 

Actions

 

It was agreed that the details of the FIS safe activities programme will be shared with all elected members.

 

It was agreed that the new cleaning protocols will be shared with members of the Committee.

13/10/2020 - Notices of Motion ref: 327    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: County Council

Made at meeting: 13/10/2020 - County Council

Decision published: 14/10/2020

Effective from: 13/10/2020

Decision:

Agreed Motion on Housing

 

Recent research has clearly established that the increasing costs of private rental is a very significant factor in causing work poverty and an affordable decent home is a fundamental requirement of good physical and mental health. The LGA has recognised this and recommended that local authorities should be allowed to retain 100% of right to buy receipts and to set any discounts locally so that more affordable homes to rent or purchase can be built. This council supports that recommendation.

 

Warwickshire County Council, in its role as a Public Health Authority, and in support of its stated agenda to ‘level up’ health inequalities and social inclusion, urges the government to follow through on the recommendations in its White Paper “Planning for the Future” to look at development site viability and how those calculations are determined so that developers cannot choose to diminish or relinquish their affordable housing responsibilities, based upon individual site constraints.

 

Further this council asks that this support is included in its response to the White paper consultation.
