Opposition Priority Business - The Local Plan and Housing Delivery pdf icon PDF 156 KB

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 Smith introduced the issues paper, prepared by the Opposition Group.

 

1.            Issues highlighted by Councillor Smith were as follows: 

 

·         The Local Plan, which was about to go out on consultation, was an important document which would shape the future development in the borough until 2036.  If we got it wrong, there would be consequences. 

 

·         His feeling that the Labour administration believed that the borough’s population was due to rise substantially, increasing housing need, leading to the need for more building. His concern that the administration were proposing to allow building on the green belt in areas such as Crews Hill, to increase back land development and to permit high rise blocks in town centres. 

 

·         The view that building on green belt land would not conform to the Mayor of London’s draft London Plan.  Opposition members queried therefore why such proposals had been included in the consultation document. 

 

·         It was felt that the main reason for the housing shortage was due to Council’s failures, including delays to large regeneration schemes such as Meridian Water and even to the small housing site schemes.

 

·         Concern about the possibility of enormous fines if the Meridian Water Station development was not completed by May 2019.

 

·         Fear that these new proposals, if they went ahead would change, for the worse, the character of Enfield for ever and would damage Enfield residents’ quality of life. 

 

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

 

·      The Council were required to update the local plan under the National Planning Policy Framework.  Under the new plan, Enfield would need to increase house building targets to 1,900 properties per year, up from the 798 currently required and in contrast to the Government’s figure of 3,500.  Many more houses were needed. 

 

·      She argued that there was no point questioning population growth figures or thinking that migration would be reduced because of Brexit, as most migration was domestic; people would continue to come to London whether Brexit happened or not.  All predictions indicated that population would continue to grow. 

 

·      Without a good plan, it would not be possible to control or shape development in the borough.  Over the past 15 years the average price of houses in the borough had increased from £160,000 to £460,000, and average rents by £400.  Too many people could not afford the cost of housing.  Over 3,000 people were on the temporary housing register.  Half of all council housing had been lost since 1979.  New development was essential.  Work was also needed to tackle climate change, to improve infrastructure, to enable society to grow and prosper. 

 

·      The local plan was due to be published as part of the start of a 12-week consultation, at the options stage.  The Council was seeking the views of the public, before finalising the plan for submission.  It was a call for sites and a call for ideas from residents and other stakeholders. 

 

·      The designation of land as Strategic Industrial Land (SIL) was an issue,  ...  view the full minutes text for item 6.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Dogan moved and Councillor Bond seconded a report from the Director of Environment and Operational Services requesting Council approval of the Gambling Act Policy and no casino resolution.  (Report No: 118). 

 

NOTED

 

1.            The Council had a statutory duty to consult on the Gambling Act 2005 licencing policy every three years and could also re-consider their no casino resolution. 

2.            The principle of the gambling act was that activities may be permitted unless there were strong reasons against.

4.            Some minor changes had been made to the policy and the local area profile would now be presented separately, alongside the policy. 

5.            The local area profile has been updated and this now included data related to sensitive buildings such as schools and religious establishments to help protect young and other vulnerable people from exploitation  

6.            That the number of problem gamblers had grown hugely in recent years.  Recent reports cited that one in seven 11-16 year olds were involved in gambling.

7.            Gambling could cause enormous damage to people’s lives.

8.            Some concern that the consultation had taken place during the summer period.

Annual Treasury Management Mid Year Review 2018/19 pdf icon PDF 250 KB

To receive a report from the Director of Finance reviewing the activities of the Council’s Treasury Management function over the half year period to 30 September 2018.  (Report No: 107)  (Key Decision Reference:  KD: 4768). 

 

The report is due to be recommended for the consideration of Council, by Cabinet, at its meeting on Wednesday 14 November 2018.

 

Council is asked to approve the report. 

 

Any comments made at Cabinet will be reported to Council on the green update sheet at the meeting. 

Minutes:

Councillor Maguire moved and Councillor Caliskan seconded a report of the Director of Finance reviewing the activities of the Council’s treasury management function over the half year period to 30 September 2018.  (Report No:  107)

 

NOTED

 

1.            That Cabinet had approved the report and recommended it to Council at their meeting on 14 November 2018. 

2.            The report detailed the money borrowed and invested by the Council over the first 6 months of the financial year. 

3.            Table 1 on page 123 of the agenda detailed the current borrowing and Table 2 the amount loaned by the Council to its companies. 

4.            The amount of borrowing was carefully controlled within set limits and the Council only borrowed what it needed.  Table 3 detailed the Council’s investments.  These are secure and elicit the best returns.

5.            The interest rate was currently low, so it made sense to borrow.

6.            The Council has £750m worth of loans, an increase of £50m since April 2018.  The authority borrowed £100m of which £47m was used to replace maturing debt. And £53m was applied to fund new capital expenditure”. 

7.            The Council has 86 loans spread over 50 years the average maturity being 27 years.  The average rate of interest was 3.4%. 

8.            No rescheduling had been done during the year. 

9.            Net borrowing was likely to increase due to the uncertainty caused by Brexit. 

10.         The report confirms the steady position of the Council, which was taking a responsible approach to borrowing, investing for the future. 

11.         Concern on the part of the Opposition about the extent of current borrowing including the £8.9m for revenue spending.  There was also concern that the Council was borrowing to pay staff. 

12.         Although borrowing was within the set boundary, the Council itself had set the boundary and debts would have to be repaid.

13.         CIPFA had recently written to councils expressing concern about local authority borrowing levels. 

 

At this point Councillor Erbin Erbil moved and Councillor Caliskan seconded the procedural motion 14.11 (a) (ii) that the question now be put.

 

This motion was voted on and agreed with the following result:

 

For:  37

Against:  13

Abstentions: 0

 

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

 

For:  37

Against:  13

North London Waste Plan Regulation 19 Publication pdf icon PDF 326 KB

To receive the report of the Executive Director Place seeking Council approval of the North London Waste Plan (set out in Annex 1 to the report).  (Report No:  108)  (Key Decision Reference:  KD: 4709)

 

Council is asked to note that the plan was due to be agreed and recommended to Council by Cabinet at their meeting on 14 November 2018.

 

The Cabinet decision will be reported to Council on the Council update sheet at the meeting. 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Caliskan moved and Councillor Savva seconded a report of the Executive Director Place on the North London Waste Plan Regulation 19 Publication.  (Report No: 108)

 

NOTED

 

1.            That Cabinet had approved the report and recommended it to Council at their meeting on 14 November 2018. 

2.            That the waste plan was a policy document that Enfield had worked on together with six other North London boroughs.  It would help ensure that future waste development takes place in the right place and that in future there would be grounds to reject inappropriate proposals.

3.            Without a plan the Council could have to allow waste developments in sites set aside for Cross Rail 2 or Meridian Water for example. 

4.            Council were being asked to agree to putting the plan out for a final round of consultation, before the plan was submitted to the Independent Planning Inspectorate.

5.            Officers were to be congratulated as they had worked hard to ensure that this plan would work for Enfield residents.

6.            Any new waste site proposals would still have to go through the full planning permission process.  The plan would not approve new waste proposals.  There were no plans for additional waste facilities in Enfield. 

7.            If there were any changes proposed, the Council would have the chance to review the plan. 

8.            Concern from the Opposition Group that although there were now fewer waste sites proposed for Enfield than in the original plan, there were still worries about the possibility of increased traffic, especially on the North Circular Road, across the borough and the issue of wildlife on the Pinkham Way site. 

9.            That Enfield did already have a large amount of land given over to waste because of the North London Waste site in Edmonton, but that this plan would mean a reduction in the number of sites designated as potentially suitable for waste overall. 

10.         The Pinkham Way site was in the London Borough of Haringey, so it was felt that protesters should be addressing their concerns to the relevant local authority.  The Pinkham Way site was listed as strategic industrial land as well as being a site of special importance for wildlife. 

11.         Bowes ward councillors had abstained the last time that this issue had come forward, but this time there were no firm proposals for waste development.  Any future proposals would still be subject to planning permission. 

12.         This plan had been over ten years in development.  Mistakes were felt to have been made in the early stages by the seven boroughs, due to issues over consultation.

13.         Concern from Opposition members that, including the Ely Estate site, a site adjacent to the Edmonton facility, would increase waste in the borough and that more effort should be made to ensure that waste development was spread more fairly around all the other boroughs. 

14.         Councillor Caliskan summed up by saying the Enfield councillors had a duty to do what was best for the residents of Enfield.  The plan was  ...  view the full minutes text for item 9.

Motions pdf icon PDF 133 KB

12.1      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.”

 

12.2      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.”

 

12.3    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.”

 

12.4      Motion in the name of Councillor Nesil Caliskan

 

“London Borough of Enfield has significant inequalities. Enfield Council serves a complex borough with extremes of poverty and affluence and one of the most diverse areas in England.

 

This Council is committed to delivering high quality public services to create a borough of opportunity for all residents with vibrant, inclusive and economically strong communities.


Outstanding and responsive council services provide residents with an excellent quality of life. They are a catalyst to tackling deep rooted inequalities to ensure every resident can achieve their full potential. Public services also provide an essential safety net to support the most vulnerable from the worst excesses of Tory-imposed austerity. 


Outsourcing a local authority in its entirety is a long-held Tory municipal fantasy, first articulated by Margaret Thatcher in the late 1980s. Large Tory-run authorities in Cornwall, Suffolk and Barnet embarked on their own high-profile versions of this Thatcherite model, claiming that impoverishment gave them no choice but to pursue large-scale privatisation. 

 

Enfield Council rejects this failed Tory model of municipalism.


By 2019, local government funding will have been cut by 70% since 2010, and further cuts are planned. Local authorities are, therefore, reviewing how they deliver services in the light of severe budgetary pressure.  There is evidence that many councils are bringing a significant number and range of services back in-house to gain maximum value from decreasing resources. 


Enfield Council believes that bringing services back in-house is desirable.  The benefits of insourcing or direct council provision include: 
•       Improving efficiency and reducing costs 
•       Involving local people in the design of services
•       Delivering better satisfaction levels and outcomes
•       Enhanced public accountability and ownership 
•       Delivering genuine social impact
•       The ability to integrate a range of services 
•       Reducing cost and time spent managing contracts 
•       Greater staff motivation and improved service quality 
•       Creating expertise and capacity in the council

 

This Council will conduct a realistic analysis on a service-by-service basis to  ...  view the full agenda text for item 13.

Minutes:

The Mayor has agreed to accept the urgent motion set out below for the following reason.

 

The reason given as to why the motion had not been submitted earlier was because the motion had been about the incidents in Edmonton over the weekend, where some shooting and multiple stabbings had occurred.  Councillors have had many enquiries about the issue, and it was therefore felt that it was too important to wait until the next meeting.

 

Motion in the name of Cllr Terry Neville

 

Councillor Neville moved, and Councillor Laban seconded the following motion: 

 

“Following the shooting on Saturday 17 November of three men in Gordon Road and the soaring level of serious crime in Enfield and across the capital, the Council expresses its dismay at the continuing lack of action on the part of the Mayor of London and the Metropolitan Police Commissioner to re-prioritise the use of police resources to tackle this most serious problem. This has led to abysmally low detection and clear up rates. Against this background the council is also concerned at the cost of policing the increasing number of marches in central London (to which officers from all over London are drafted in to the centre), and urges the Mayor to seek to re -charge a fixed percentage of the policing cost to the march organizers, which would assist in funding additional officers for front line policing.

 

The council also condemns the Labour administration for not taking the issue more seriously and calls upon the cabinet member for community safety to bring forward proposals for tackling the root causes of gang related violence.

 

It further calls on the council to either instruct the Crime Scrutiny Panel to inquire into the problem, taking evidence from all interested parties, and to make recommendations to the council within six months, or to follow the successful precedent of the Conservative administration in2004/5 and set up a Special Commission to undertake such Inquiry.

 

Finally, it instructs the Director of Law and Governance to write to the Sentencing Council asking them to remind sentencers of both their power to depart from Sentencing Guidelines where, as now in respect of soaring levels of violent crime and burglary, deterrent sentences are required and to remind them that such sentences are exility provided for in section 142(1)(b), Criminal Justice Act 2003.”

 

During the debate, Councillor Ergin Erbil moved and Councillor Hasan seconded a procedural motion seconded the procedural motion 14.11 (a) (ii) that the question now be put.  This was not allowed by the Mayor, as she felt that sufficient debate had not taken place.

 

After further debate, Councillor Ergin Erbil moved and Caliskan seconded another procedural motion 14.11 (a) (ii) that the question now be put.  This was not allowed by the Mayor as she felt that sufficient debate had not taken place.”

1.            Urgent Questions

 

The Mayor has agreed to accept the following urgent question: 

 

The question was urgent because events had come to light since the deadline for questions had passed. The question related to Cllr Brett being dismissed, in a clandestine manner, from the Cabinet. 

 

Question from Councillor Alessandro Georgiou to Councillor Caliskan, Leader of the Council

 

“Would the Leader of the Council explain why she has removed Cllr Brett as the Cabinet Member for Public Health and who has the leader appointed as the new Cabinet Member for Public Health?”

 

Written Response from Councillor Caliskan

 

“I wrote to Jeremy Chambers on Friday 16th November to inform him that I was removing the Cabinet Member for Public Health from her post from immediate effect. I did not appoint anyone else to replace her. I stated at the time that I intended to reappoint the same Councillor within two weeks. In the meantime, I have taken responsibility for the Public Health portfolio.
