Mayor's Announcements in Connection with the Ordinary Business of the Council

Minutes:

The Mayor welcomed everyone to the meeting, saying it was “only three weeks since we last met, but that a lot of Mayoral events had taken place since then”.

 

1.               Engagements since the last meeting

 

The Mayor’s Ball

 

The Mayor thanked everyone for attending and supporting the Enfield Cares Charity Ball which had been an amazing success: 250 people had attended.  So far over £11,000 had been raised, a superb amount.  The Enfield Cares charities would benefit hugely by the end of the Mayoral year.  

 

The World Cancer Coffee and Cakes Day

 

The day had been run by Hayes Reese, a fantastic Macmillan representative and over £500 had been raised for this worthy cause. The Mayor thanked everyone who had enabled this event to be a success.

 

All People All Places Homeless Charity

 

The Mayor said that she was still working with the All People All Places homeless shelter in Enfield.  She had attended the shelter based at All Saints Church in Edmonton and had continued to be touched by the great work that they did.  She had named them as one of her charity recipients.

 

Citizenship Ceremonies

 

The Deputy Mayor and the Mayor had on alternate weeks attended the weekly Citizenship Ceremonies.  They were both proud to be present at these invents and to welcome the new citizens. 

 

Official Opening of Bridgewood House Care Home

 

The Mayor had also been part of the official opening of the Bridgewood House Care Home with many of the other council members.  She praised the great facilities now available to the residents of the Borough.

 

2.               Future Events

 

The Mayor’s charity work was progressing and she said that she would be very busy this year with the many events planned.

 

The next event the Mayors Quiz Night would be taking place at Forty Hall on the 16th March 2018 at 7pm.  She asked members to put the date in their diaries.

 

The Mayor said that she was very lucky to be part of the team with Hayes Reese Macmillan rep and the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Jiagge who have been and are still happy to continue to work with me for the next three months on future charity fundraising events. 

 

And finally, she said that the members might have heard that she had visited Wigan Council that week and had met the Mayor of Wigan (a Manchester City supporter).  She reminded members that Wigan was her old home town and said that she had been delighted to watch the game where Wigan won 1-0 against Manchester City (again, the same result as when they won the FA cup).

 

Enfield Town Football Club, now her real home team, was holding a “Women at the Game” match on Saturday the 10th March 2018, free for women, to celebrate International Women’s Day (8th March 2018).  The Mayor invited everyone to come along, to join the club, who would be playing Lowestoft Town FC, at home at the QE2 stadium.

 

The Mayor ended by saying that “I trust  ...  view the full minutes text for item 3.

Declaration of Interests

Members of the Council are invited to identify any disclosable pecuniary, other pecuniary or non pecuniary interests relating to items on the agenda. 

Minutes:

Before inviting members to declare any interests, the Mayor asked Jeremy Chambers (Director Law and Governance) to make a short statement regarding the declaration of interests’ requirements in relation to agenda item 7 Budget Report 2018/19 and Medium Term Financial Plan. 

 

NOTED

 

1.     Under guidance issued by the Department of Communities and Local Government members would not be required to declare a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (DPA) in relation to the budget or setting of the Council Tax.  This was on the basis that Council Tax liability would apply to the borough’s population as a whole, with councillors not having any unique position in that regard.  The requirements within Section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992 would, however, still apply, which required any Member who was two or more months in arrears on their Council Tax to declare their position and not vote on any issue that could affect the calculation of the budget or Council Tax.  No declarations in this respect were made at the meeting.

 

2.     The Councillor Conduct Committee (May 2013) had also granted a dispensation for all members in terms of the declaration of Disclosable Pecuniary Interests relating to the setting of housing rents.  Subject to the requirements within Section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act 1992, this would allow all members to participate in the debate and vote on decisions relating to the setting of the Council Tax and Housing Rents.

 

3.     Having noted the advice provided, the following interests were declared at the meeting:

 

·       Councillors Caliskan, Ekechi, Elif Erbil and Fonyonga declared disclosable pecuniary interests in Motion 10.9 in the name of Councillor Levy on NHS pay as they worked in the NHS.  

 

·       Councillor Alessandro Georgiou declared a non-pecuniary interest in Item 10.8 Motion in the name of Councillor Laban on the extension of the Mayor of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone as he worked for a company which had a client who was involved in the industry. 

 

·       Councillor Laban declared a non-pecuniary interest in Motion 10.10 Motion in the name of Councillor Orhan as her mother worked in a school which had been run by Carillion.

(Key Decision – Reference No: 4597)

 

Members are asked to note that:

 

·            Recommendations 2.1 – 2.13 are due to be endorsed and recommended onto Council for formal approval, by Cabinet on 14 February 2018.

 

·            The report will need to be considered in conjunction with Report No: 152A on the Part Two Council agenda.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Taylor moved and Councillor Lemonides seconded the report of the Executive Director of Finance, Resources and Customer Services (145A) presenting for approval the Budget for 2018/19 and the Medium Term Financial Plan. 

 

NOTED

 

1.          Recommendations 2.1 – 2.11 had been endorsed and recommended onto Council for formal approval by Cabinet on 14 February 2017.

 

2.          The report would need to be considered in conjunction with Report No:  152A on the Part 2 Council agenda (Min 17 refers).

 

3.          The addendum to the report provided to members of the Council as the report as originally published inadvertently included two recommendations (recommendations 2.12 and 2.13), that were decisions taken by Cabinet when it last met (14 February 2018) and are not decisions to be taken by Council.

 

4.          The tabled note setting out how the discussion of the item would be considered at the meeting

 

5.     The following comments highlighted by the Leader of the Council:

 

a.          The Leader thanked officers for all their hard work in putting together the balanced budget proposed. 

 

b.          He welcomed the Government’s fair funding review and the pilot business rate retention pool, as steps to providing possible solutions to the large funding gap which the Council was facing from 2020 onwards, but he was concerned that the Government, when allocating funding was prioritising Conservative areas, rather than focussing on the needs of the poor, vulnerable and those at risk. 

 

c.           He felt that it was an extraordinary budget as the Labour administration had managed to navigate austerity and massive funding cuts, whilst preserving services and imposing minimal Council tax rises.  He would have liked to do more, but the Tory Government wanted to shrink public provision. 

 

d.          The Council had been very efficient and had managed to do more with less, but this had been at a price of reducing salaries, less cover for checking work, removal of the best of the last Labour Government initiatives supporting vulnerable residents, cutting their life chances.  He felt that the Government were to blame if this led to dirtier streets, lack of road repairs, closure of libraries and greater risk to children. 

 

e.          To recognise that many councils were struggling, Conservative Northamptonshire had been tipped over the edge, local government finances were close to unsustainable.  Fifty percent cuts to Children’s Services’s funding had become the norm.  Councils were having difficulty carrying out their statutory duties. All public services were in trouble - 2010-2018 would be known as the dark ages of social regression:

 

f.            In his view the only way to address this crisis would be to elect a Labour Government.

 

g.          The proposed budget showed efficiency in its allocation of resources, clear priorities in children’s services, adult social care, the public realm and customer services, and a back office fit for purpose.  It also showed innovation and would be a good foundation for the coming financial year.  However he feared that there would be even greater challenges for the two years ahead.

Housing Revenue Account (HRA) 30 Year Business Plan, Budget 2018/19, Rent Setting and Service Charges pdf icon PDF 422 KB

To receive the joint report of the Executive Director of Finance, Resources and Customer Services and Executive Director of Regeneration and Environment presenting for approval the revenue estimates of the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) for 2018/19 and the updated position on the HRA 30 year business plan.                                                               (Report No: 146)

(Key Decision – Reference No: 4586)

 

Members are asked to note that the recommendations in the report are due to be endorsed and approved for recommendation onto Council by Cabinet on 14 February 2017.

Minutes:

Councillor Oykener proposed and Councillor Lemonides seconded the report of the Chief Executive and Executive Director of Finance, Resources and Customer Services on the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) Business Plan Budget 18/19, Rent Setting and Service Charges.  (Report No:  146)

 

NOTED

 

1.               That the recommendations in the report had been endorsed and approved for recommendation onto Council by Cabinet on 14 February 2018.

 

2.               Issues highlighted by the majority group: 

 

a.     The report presents the Council’s 30 year business plan, the revenue budget for 2018/9 the five year capital programme, the right to buy one to one receipts programme and the service charges for 2018/19. 

 

b.     Resources are tightly constrained with only £8m headroom but the accounts were balanced, despite the lack of support from Government which had made setting the budget extremely difficult. 

 

c.     The Housing Revenue Account had been affected by many new policy initiatives including the right to buy.  The Council used to sell 8 properties a year and now sells 200.  This year Enfield had managed to spend all its right to buy receipts although this had been complicated to achieve. 

 

d.     Additional monies had been set aside in response to the Grenfell Tower disaster: £8.4m for sprinklers, which despite promises, the Government were refusing to fund.  Efficiency savings of £333,000 had been found and a capital programme of £237m for 5 years proposed: including estate renewal schemes and major works.   

 

e.     Rents had been reduced by 1% this year and would be again next year.  From 2020 they would increase by 1%.  Service charges had been recalculated and reduced in some cases.  Because of the volatile energy market, electricity prices had been increased by 6% overall, gas by 3% and oil by 2%. 

 

f.      Since he had been made aware of the issues at Joyce Avenue, Councillor Oykener had visited the properties, made it a top priority to identify the problems and ensured that works were currently being undertaken. 

 

g.     Thanks to officers for navigating the unusual complexities to ensure that a balanced budget could be produced and navigating the 13 new government interventions, full details of which still have not been  published, several elements being deferred, creating high risks to the HRA. 

 

h.     Praise for the decisive and responsive leadership of Councillor Oykener.

 

3.       Issues highlighted by the Opposition Group:                                 

 

a.     The need to recognise that the HRA was in a good financial position and the capital programme fully funded, thanks to the Government for listening and for their generosity in providing extra housing funds. 

 

b.     Concern that most of the receipts from right to buy were not being used to provide new stock, but on buying second hand homes.

 

c.     That the Grenfell Tower disaster was not a result of cost cutting by the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, but was more likely to have been caused because the materials used for cladding had not been properly tested.  Any sprinklers installed would need to be maintained. 

 

d.     Concern that  ...  view the full minutes text for item 8.

Housing Gateway Annual Report 2016/17 pdf icon PDF 213 KB

To receive the Housing Gateway Limited Annual Report 2016/17 from the Executive Director of Finance Resources and Customer Services.

 (Report No: 139)

 

This report should be considered in conjunction with Report No: 141 on the Part Two Agenda. 

 

Members are asked to note that this report was considered by Cabinet on 24 January 2018 and referred on to Council for information. 

Minutes:

Councillor Achilleas Georgiou proposed and Councillor Oykener seconded the Housing Gateway Annual Report 2016-17 from the Executive Director Finance, Resources and Customer Services.  (Report No: 139)

 

NOTED

 

1.               The report was considered in conjunction with Report No: 141 on the part 2 agenda.

 

2.               That the report was also considered by Cabinet at their meeting on 24 January 2018. 

 

3.               The issues highlighted by the Majority Group:  

 

a.     The Council were concerned to do the right thing in housing and to make sure that the residents were kept safe.  That was why the Council had agreed to find the money to bring in the safety measures arising as a result of the Grenfell disaster.  Unlike the Government. 

 

b.     Housing Gateway had been a great success and had benefited Council Tax players and residents in temporary accommodation.  Through Housing Gateway, the Council had been able to provide secure cost efficient local housing, instead of placing people in expensive temporary nightly paid accommodation.  They had set an exemplary standard for others to follow. 

 

c.     418 units had been provided and the Council had saved £2.5m to date

 

d.     The Government were failing to do enough to provide adequate housing.  This administration had found a way to buy properties in Enfield to enable Enfield people to live in Enfield.  The model works and many other authorities are now coming to Enfield to find out how they can set up similar schemes. 

 

4.               The issues highlighted by the Opposition: 

 

a.     The view that Housing Gateway had been a disastrous and embarrassing failure.  That it would not address the needs of the more than 3,000 residents in temporary housing, a huge problem.

 

b.     Concern that £2.5m over 4 years had been spent and paid for by borrowing. 

 

c.     Concern that less than was originally anticipated would be realised.  Cost pressures were increasing and the savings were paltry.

 

d.     Concern about the impact on first time buyers who were struggling and unable to raise the massive deposits needed to buy a property.  They could not compete with the buying power of the Council and were rapidly being squeezed out of the housing market. 

 

e.     Instead the Council ought to be building more homes and ensuring that private developers build their share or housing people in cheaper areas outside London. 

 

5.               The response of the Deputy Leader that the scheme was a success and he would like to hear what the Opposition would do instead.  Would they sell the properties and make people homeless?  Councils can’t build and the Government would not lift the borrowing cap. 

 

AGREED to note the contents of the Housing Gateway Annual Report 2016-17.

Motions pdf icon PDF 119 KB

Motion 10.1 in the name of Councillor Rye

 

“Enfield Council needs to take urgent action to support Enfield Town as a major shopping centre in the borough and will: undertake enforcement action on vacant shops with untidy frontages; seek funding to provide hanging baskets and Christmas lights; review the lengthy timelines for action set out in the Enfield Town Centre Draft Framework Master Plan to deliver positive outcomes sooner rather than later.”

 

Motion 10.2  in the name of Councillor Achilleas Georgiou

 

“This Council welcomes the saving of £2.5m to the Council budget by the purchase of properties through Housing Gateway since it was established in 2014.

 

Given this is a net contribution, it is hard to see how any councillor could consider it anything other than good economics.”

 

Motion 10.3  in the name of Councillor Taylor

 

“Council notes the decision to issue a Section 114 notice banning Northamptonshire from engaging any new expenditure.  Council notes all Councils, including Enfield, are suffering from persistent cuts in funding and instructs the Leader of the Council and Leader of the Opposition to put in writing to the Prime Minister, in the strongest terms, our view that there should be no more cuts.”

 

Motion 10.4  in the name of Councillor Nesimi Erbil

 

“On Saturday, 20th January, Turkish war planes launched air strikes on Afrin, one of the three Kurdish cantons in Northern Syria; compromising of 20% Armenians, 30% Arabics, 25% Kurdish and 25% Alevis and Turkmens. In the London borough of Enfield large numbers of residents are concerned about the ongoing problems in Afrin.

 

This was followed by ground attacks over the last few weeks with civilian casualties.

 

This act of unprovoked warfare by the Turkish state threatens to destabilise one of the calmest regions throughout the whole Syrian civil war. Afrin has been a crucial safe haven for people fleeing ISIS in the region, and it must stay that way!

 

It will have devastating consequences for not just the Kurdish people who will pay with their lives but also the people of Turkey and of the broader region.

 

As a member of this Council, I am calling the Council to:

 

·       Raise this issue as a priority with the UK Government,

·       Call for an end to all UK arms sales to Turkey,

·       Publicly condemn Turkey’s aggression on the Afrin region, and

·       Take any other necessary action to end the bloodshed in Afrin.

 

We urgently need the Council to support this motion because it’s a humanitarian crisis in Afrin.”

 

Motion 10.5 in the name of Councillor Dines

“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year. After bowel and lung cancer it is the third most common cause of cancer death, with one man dying in the UK every 45 minutes. As recent publicity has shown, men are remarkably unaware of this and unwilling to talk about the issue. The Council therefore commits as one its health awareness campaigns in 2018-19 to raise  ...  view the full agenda text for item 11.

Minutes:

Motion 10.3

 

Councillor Taylor moved and Councillor Maguire seconded the following motion:

 

“Council notes the decision to issue a Section 114 notice banning Northamptonshire from engaging any new expenditure.  Council notes all Councils, including Enfield, are suffering from persistent cuts in funding and instructs the Leader of the Council and Leader of the Opposition to put in writing to the Prime Minister, in the strongest terms, our view that there should be no more cuts.”

 

Councillor Laban moved an amendment seconded by Councillor Hurer to change the final part of the last sentence of the motion to read:  “that there should be fairer funding for the London Borough of Enfield” removing the words “that there should be no more cuts”. 

 

Following a debate on the motion and the amendment the amendment was put to the vote and not agreed with the following result: 

 

For: 16

Against: 26

Abstentions: 0

 

The substantive motion was then put to the vote and agreed with the following result:

 

For:  26

Against: 16

Abstentions: 0

 

Motion 10.6

 

Councillor Taylor moved and Councillor Levy seconded the following motion: 

 

“Council notes the importance of the NHS to Enfield residents and its requirement for adequate funding in this the 70th year of its foundation.”

 

Following the debate, the motion was agreed unanimously. 

 

Duration of the time allowed for motions. 

 

The Mayor advised, at this stage of the meeting, that the time available for motions had now elapsed so Council Procedure Rule 9 would apply.

 

Motions 10.1, 10.2, 10.4, 10.5, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10 lapsed under the guillotine.
