An issues paper prepared by the Opposition Group is attached for the Council to consider.

 

The Council rules relating to Opposition Business are also attached for information.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Laban introduced the issues paper, prepared by the Opposition Group.

 

1.              Issues highlighted by Councillor Laban were as follows: 

 

·       Acknowledging the difficult external circumstances within which the traders in Enfield Town were operating, it was felt that the problem should not be ignored by the Council: the shops were struggling. 

·       The health of the high street was very important to the community and it was an issue that had been raised on the doorstep, during the recent local government elections. 

·       The new Palace Exchange development had led to many of the previously existing shops moving to other premises in the new development, rather than bringing new shops to the area and increasing the offer, as had been hoped. 

·       The 2011 riots had had an impact on the town’s reputation.  Funding provided by the Mayor, that could have been used to improve the high street, had been spent by the administration on a market gardening project instead. 

·       The night time economy had declined over the past 20 years: much of it had shifted to the retail parks, with the building of the Southbury Leisure Centre where there was free parking.  The Dugdale Centre was one of the very few places providing evening entertainment in the town. 

·       In July 2018, the Opposition had raised concern about the increases to parking charges.  They had felt that the administration had not taken enough account of the impact that this could have on footfall.  Especially as there were other places nearby where parking was either free or less expensive.  The Opposition had argued in the past for a 3 hour free parking window on Sundays to boost shopping, but this had not been accepted. 

·       Other areas had been given much more regeneration funding than Enfield.  Edmonton Green had also been offered rate relief which had not been available to retailers in Enfield Town. 

·       Although there were proposals to improve the high street, in the Enfield Town Masterplan, it was felt that more needed to be done more quickly to boost the shopping and leisure activities in the town.  Councillor Laban hoped that the majority group would accept the recommendations in the paper. 

 

2.              Councillor Caliskan, the Leader of the Council, responded on behalf of the Majority Group highlighting:

 

·       Councillor Caliskan had initially welcomed the topic for opposition business but had been disappointed by the content of the paper and its sole focus on Enfield Town, ignoring other key shopping areas such as Palmers Green, Southgate, the Angel Edmonton and Edmonton Green. 

·       The current administration was keen to serve the whole borough, all the town centres and high streets.  They were looking at the overall strategic approach, to deliver improvement, whilst also allowing for bespoke place making for particular areas. 

·       The administration was in the process of developing a town centres action plan and would be consulting with traders, business leaders, councillors and everyone with an interest, on their priorities.

·       A number of meetings had already been held. 

·       The National context was grim.  One hundred  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.

Corporate Plan 2018/22 pdf icon PDF 251 KB

To receive a report from the Chief Executive on the Council’s new Corporate Plan 2018/22.  (Report No: 59)

 

Council is asked to adopt the Corporate Plan 2018/22 as attached to the appendix of the report. 

 

Cabinet is meeting to consider the plan and recommend to Council on 12 September 2018, after the agenda for this meeting has been published.  The Cabinet decision and any alterations agreed will be reported to Council on the update sheet tabled at the meeting. 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Caliskan moved and Councillor Anderson seconded the report of the Chief Executive (Report No: 59) seeking approval for the Council’s new Corporate Plan (2018-2022). 

 

NOTED

 

1.               That Cabinet had approved the plan at their meeting on 12 September 2018 and recommended Council approval.

2.               The Leader’s view that the plan sets the course for the next 4 years, building on the achievements of the previous administration.  She thought that the challenges faced by the Council were significant, in the light of the current Government’s ideological attack on local government.

3.               The administration was looking to achieve positive outcomes.  The plan was ambitious and forward looking, not merely retrenchment and retreat, creating a life time of opportunities for Enfield residents.  The plan had captured the priorities and would ensure that Enfield worked and delivered for everyone, creating good homes, strong and healthy communities and a thriving local economy.  It set the context for future action.

4.               The administration wanted to make rapid progress with affordable housing, to grow potential and to make Enfield a great place to do great things, attracting private sector investment.  The action plans, arising from the plan, would be robust, transparent and measurable, providing clear links between what was being said and what was to be done.

5.               The view of the Opposition Leader that she had no problems with the aims of the plan, however was concerned that there were no milestones in the document, the department plans had yet to be produced and that the plan had not been presented to Council earlier in the year. 

6.               The Opposition could not support the plan because of the failed governance processes and the lack of targets and objectives. 

7.               Concern was also expressed about the failure of previous Labour administrations to deliver on projects such as Housing Gateway and the small housing sites. 

8.               The response of the Deputy Leader that the detail would be mapped out in future documents.  He felt that the Housing Gateway scheme had been a tremendous success saving the Council £2.5m.

9.               The Corporate Plan was ambitious, with a vision incorporating 3 strategic priorities setting the framework for the next 4 years.  The milestones would be included in the action plan. 

 

Following the debate, a vote was taken on the report with the following result: 

 

For:  37

Against: 15

Abstentions: 0

 

AGREED that Council approve the Corporate Plan 2018-22 as set out in the appendix to the report.

Motions pdf icon PDF 64 KB

13.1    Motion in the name of Councillor Laban

 

“This Chamber agrees that the new Administration has fallen at the first hurdle by the announcement that the Annual Town Show will not be held.

 

This Council has no confidence in the leader of the council because if the administration cannot facilitate a long-standing event such as the Annual Town Show it is not competent enough to deal with the complex challenges our borough faces over the next four years.”

 

13.2    Motion in the name of Councillor Alessandro Georgiou

 

“For all future international tournaments, the St. George’s Flag should have a prominent place within the chamber whilst the England team is still in the tournament.”

 

13.3    Motion in the name of Councillor Barry

 

“The results of the recent election in Winchmore Hill once more showed that our residents support the Cycle Enfield scheme.  Opposition candidates made this an election issue and their share of the vote decreased by 8.5%.

 

We ask that the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet members for Community Safety & Public Health, the Environment and Economic Regeneration & Business do all they can to ensure that the other parts of this scheme are built at soon as possible so that other parts of the borough can also benefit from the advantages it brings.”

 

13.4   Motion in the name of Councillor Laban

 

The officers who work in the group offices do an exceptional job supporting past and present councillors. Enfield Council wishes to thank officers in both groups for their tireless dedication to the borough and its residents over many years. Their work has been greatly appreciated by councillors and residents.

 

13.5   Motion in the name of Councillor Laban

 

Enfield Council is committed to delivering fairness and equality. However, it currently has one of the highest levels of nepotism in Local Government. This council agrees to deliver on its promise to tackling inequality by reducing the level of nepotism that exists within the organisation. This act will give a strong signal to the local community as well as Officers that we are truly committed to delivering fairness and equality.

 

13.6    Motion in the name of Councillor Maguire

 

“The LGA has estimated that councils face a funding gap of £7.8 billion by 2025 – just to maintain current service levels.  By 2020, the Government will have cut a staggering £16 billion from core funding since 2010.  Here in Enfield, the Government has cut £161 million from our funding since 2010 with yet more to come.

 

These massive cuts threaten Enfield Council’s ability to deliver the services that the people of Enfield, whether residents or running businesses, expect and deserve.

 

This Council believes that this punitive action by this Government against local authorities shows a callous disregard for the young, sick, elderly and vulnerable who rely on council services to have a decent quality of life. 

 

This Council supports the LGA campaign – Moving the Conversation On – to build the case for long-term, sustained investment in local government as the way  ...  view the full agenda text for item 10.

Councillor Susan Erbil moved and Councillor Yusuf seconded the following motion: 

 

“As schools prepare to return after the summer, Enfield Council continues to be concerned about the immense pressure on our schools as a result of the Conservative government’s policies and austerity agenda.

 

The latest analysis by the Institute for Fiscal studies has shown that schools in England have been cut in real terms by 8% per pupil since 2010. Rising pupil numbers - and cuts to local authorities and sixth form funding - have seen a real-term reduction in school spending.

 

England's schools are also facing a ‘severe shortage’ of teachers. According to the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10.

Minutes:

Councillor Caliskan moved and Councillor Laban seconded the report of the Director of Law and Governance on the designation of the Chief Finance Officer (Section 151 Officer) role.  (Report No:  73)

 

NOTED

 

1.               That James Rolfe, the current holder of the role of chief finance officer was leaving the Council on Friday 28 September 2018. 

2.               It was proposed that Fay Hammond, his deputy, would be designated as the Section 151 officer until after a new permanent appointment was made.

3.               The Leader took the opportunity to offer her personal thanks to James Rolfe.  He had been one of the first officers to welcome her as a new backbencher and had always been generous with his time, support and understanding.

4.               James Rolfe had joined the Council in 2007.  He had made an immense contribution and provided excellent public service as depended upon by members. 

5.               His remit had included finance, legal, democratic and cultural services and he had been responsible for setting up the council companies, Housing Gateway and Enfield Innovations. 

6.               The Leader put on record the Council’s thanks and wished James luck in his new role at Anglia Ruskin University. 

7.               Councillor Laban also thanked James for this great contribution and noted that he had been appointed by a Conservative administration.  He had had cross party support.  His initiatives had included making sure that more women were included at a senior level and that the Council kept a balanced budget every year.  She thanked him for his hard work, commitment and dedication. 

 

AGREED to designate the Head of Finance as the Chief Finance Officer (Section 151 Officer) until such time as a permanent appointment be made to the post of Executive Director of Resources and a further report was bought to Council.

Annual Treasury Management Report 2017/18 pdf icon PDF 226 KB

To receive a report from the Executive Director of Resources presenting the Council’s Annual Treasury Management Report for 2017 -18 in accordance with Treasury Management Practices. 

 

It is a regulatory requirement for Council to receive this report by 30 September each year.                                                               (Report No: 25)

                                                          (Key decision reference number: 4527)

 

Minutes:

Councillor Maguire moved and Councillor Levy seconded a report of the Executive Director of Resources on the Annual Treasury Management Outturn 2017/18.  (Report No:  25)

 

NOTED

 

1.               This was a statutory requirement, detailing how much the Council had spent, from where, interest paid and investments made over the past year. 

2.               It reflected the excellent work of James Rolfe and Fay Hammond in their stewardship of the Council’s finances.

3.               The concern of opposition members about the significant increase in the amount of borrowing that had taken place over the past 8 years of past Labour administrations.  Concern about the increase in interest payable to service the borrowing.  Concern about the viability of projects such as the Lee Valley Heat Network and the Meridian Water Station which were being funded with borrowed money. 

4.               The response from the majority group that borrowing was not a crime, but an investment in the future.  It was sensible to borrow to invest when money was cheap.  Enfield has invested in the local economy to create jobs and provide homes for local people. 

5.               The need to acknowledge that all Councils were facing financial problems as a result of the Government’s austerity agenda.  Several Conservative Councils were in crisis including Northamptonshire, Surrey, Somerset and Norfolk.  In contrast Labour Council’s such as Enfield were very well run. 

6.               Concern that net borrowing had increased from £258m to £683m in 17-18 an increase of 165% and a fear that this was unsustainable.  Interest payments had also increased to £12.5m a year which meant less money for front line services. 

7.               Concern about the Housing Gateway Project and the view that the money would have been better spent on building new homes, rather than buying up existing homes.

8.               The response that Housing Gateway had been a great success and had enabled the Council to house hundreds of families and to save £2.5m.  The project had also attracted a lot of attention from other local authorities, seeking to copy it. 

9.               The Council had also invested in successful projects such as Energetik, helping to fight fuel poverty, the redevelopment of Ponders End, the Ladderswood Estate and in Meridian Water which would bring much needed jobs for Enfield. 

 

AGREED that Council approve the 2017/18 Treasury Outturn Report. 

14.
