21/07/2021 - Places for Everyone Publication Plan 2021: A Joint Development Plan Document for 9 Greater Manchester Local Authorities (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) ref: 910    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 21/07/2021 - Cabinet

Decision published: 21/07/2021

Effective from: 29/07/2021

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I Paul Dennett, City Mayor in consultation with the Cabinet and in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution do hereby:

 

1.    Approve the Places for Everyone Publication Plan 2021, including strategic site allocations and green belt boundary amendments, and reference to the potential use of compulsory purchase powers to assist with site assembly, and the supporting background documents, for publication pursuant to Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 for a period for representations of 8 weeks commencing no earlier than 9 August 2021;

 

2.    Delegate to the Strategic Director Place authority to approve the relevant Statement of Common Ground(s) required pursuant to the National Planning Policy Framework 2019; and

 

The Reasons are: To continue making progress in the production of a Joint Development Plan Document of the nine remaining Greater Manchester districts (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) and provide an opportunity for the community and other stakeholders to make representations on The Places for Everyone Publication Plan 2021 (PfE) before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for examination.

 

Options considered and rejected were: Not to progress with the production of a Joint Development Plan Document. This option was rejected given there are clear merits in continuing to produce a Joint Development Plan Document, which include enabling districts to:

·         Progress the strategic policies that were in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) which commanded widespread support, for example net zero carbon development, affordable housing and space and accessibility standards for new housing

·         Maximise the use of sustainable urban/brownfield land and limit the need for Green Belt to accommodate the development needs of the nine

·         Align with wider Greater Manchester strategies for transport and other infrastructure investment

·         Utilise the evidence base already commissioned and completed, minimising the cost of producing further evidence

·         Spread the cost jointly of the independent examination

 

 

Assessment of Risk: Places for Everyone builds on earlier work that took places for the GMSF. Significant challenges were made to the 2016 and 2019 draft GMSF versions, from various parties including local residents, landowners / developers and statutory consultees. It is likely that such representations will also be made to Places for Everyone. Places for Everyone needs to found sound at Examination and it is important that the evidence is robust as part of this. Significant work has been undertaken in relation to this in order to minimise the risk of the plan being found to be unsound.

 

The source of funding is as follows:  The preparation and examination of the Places for Everyone Publication Plan 2021 generates a revenue cost for 9 local authorities. A substantial evidence base has been assembled to support the plan which has involved commissioning of specialist and independent experts. There are no current revenue implications. Following this consultation, the PfE plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State for examination. There will be further revenue costs associated with the examination process, including appointment of a Programme Officer(s) and the cost of the examination itself, including procurement of a venue, Planning Inspectors and legal advice. Further reports will be provided to the Joint Committee as appropriate.

20/07/2021 - City of Salford (Boothshall Way & Juniper Gardens) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) Order 2021. ref: 907    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Made at meeting: 20/07/2021 - Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Decision published: 20/07/2021

Effective from: 28/07/2021

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor McCusker, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby:

 

Authorise the making of the traffic regulation order in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the report.

 

City of Salford (Boothshall Way & Juniper Gardens) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting) Order 2021

 

The Reasons are: A request has been received from Worsley and Boothstown Community Committee following complaints from local residents to provide measures on Boothshall Way and close to its junction with Juniper Gardens to deal with road safety and access issues in the area. 

 

Boothshall way is a residential road in Boothstown which is fronted by St Andrews C.E. Primary School. There is also a priority chicane system to the north of the school entrance which narrows the carriageway and hence helps reduce vehicle speeds on the approach to the school.

 

Complaints have been received that particularly at school opening and closing vehicles are parking on both sides of Boothshall Way which is causing access problems for vehicles and also making it difficult for pedestrians to cross Boothshall way at this location. Parking is also restricting access at the Boothshall Way/Juniper Gardens junction by obscuring visibility.

 

The proposals, as shown on the attached plan seek to introduce No waiting at a time parking restriction (Double Yellow Lines) and daytime weekday restrictions opposite the school (Single Yellow Lines) as indicated on the attached plan.

 

It is considered that these proposed measures will improve road safety and access for both pedestrians and vehicles.

 

Assessment of Risk: Implementation of the restrictions would improve visibility for vehicles accessing leaving both Juniper Gardens and Leigh Road, it will also allow pedestrians to cross the junctions more safely with improved visibility thereby decrease the risk of collisions.

 

The source of funding: The scheme is being funded from Highways Block 3 devolved allocation for Worsley & Boothstown, 2021-2022.

 

Financial Advice obtained:

The cost of the proposed schemes will be met from the approved Highways Block 3 devolved capital and revenue allocations for Worsley & Boothstown, in the 2021-2022 financial year.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.

20/07/2021 - Security and Concierge Services in Pendleton. ref: 906    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Statutory Deputy City Mayor & Lead Member for Housing Briefing

Made at meeting: 20/07/2021 - Statutory Deputy City Mayor & Lead Member for Housing Briefing

Decision published: 20/07/2021

Effective from: 28/07/2021

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Tracy Kelly, Statutory Deputy City Mayor and Lead Member for Housing, Property & Regeneration, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby approve:

 

The service charges for the security and concierge service in Pendleton following the transfer from Salix Homes to Salford City Council.

 

The Reasons are that following the decision to transfer the security and concierge service in Pendleton back to the council in February 2021, we are now in a position to confirm the revised costs for the service and serve legal notice on the residents affected of the reduction in service charge.

 

Options considered and rejected were - a number of alternative security delivery services were considered in the February 2021 decision and rejected as part of the review.

 

Assessment of Risk: Medium

Investigations show that the system can be transferred back to the council and a mobilisation plan has been developed to ensure the service remains operational during this period.  The costs in the report reflect recent discussions with staff affected by TUPE and contractors’ assessments of the work required to transfer the service back to the council.

 

Legal Advice obtained: Tony Hatton, Manchester Legal

The report sets out the Council’s intention to bring back in-house the security and concierge services to Council-owned tower blocks in Pendleton. A Service Level Agreement (SLA) with Salix Homes for them to provide remote and on-site concierge services, CCTV monitoring and mobile patrols to the blocks is currently in place, but it is not clear in the report when that “Either party may terminate the provision of the Services by Salix under this Appendix by giving not less than six (6) months’ written notice to the other party",so the arrangement may be terminated by the Council serving 6 months' notice to terminate on Salix, without financial compensation becoming due. Salix are also obliged to continue to provide the services during the notice period, and to cooperate with the Council when the services are transferred to a new provider - the Council.

 

The Council is under a duty to provide "Best Value", and hence reserves the right to provide the services through whatever resources will provide that best value, which gives the Council flexibility to consider in-house provision without going out to the wider market.

 

The Council has carried out consultation exercises with tenants, residents, and partners and made a robust analysis and assessment of the service provision, concluding that bringing the service in-house will deliver best value for residents and the Council.

 

There are likely to be TUPE implications with the proposal, and no doubt HROD and Employment Legal Teams can provide more advice as the project develops. Whilst it is not clear how many employees may be in scope for TUPE, there is an obligation on both transferor and transferee (Salix Homes and the Council) to inform and consult with employees/unions, “long enough before the transfer” to enable consultation to take place, including any measures to be taken following transfer.

 

The Council will undertake an exercise to obtain Employee Liability Information (information about employees who are in scope to transfer with the service which Salix must provide to the Council at least 28 days before any transfer) as part of its due diligence exercise to enable the Council to form a reasonably accurate assessment of liabilities, costs etc of the staff transfer.

 

For information, if not already done as part of the assessment and options appraisal undertaken so far, as part of the due diligence exercise the Council should ascertain whether there are any; commercial agreements/contracts associated with the service which will need to come over and novated to SCC?; business assets which will need to be transferred to the Council; property, licence or lease issues, assignments or transfers to the Council may be required; and early engagement with ICT to ensure systems are transferrable/compatible with Council systems to maintain the service upon transfer.

 

Financial Advice obtained: Paul Guest, Finance Officer, 925 1136

Further analysis and review of the TUPE and other associated costs of the transfer of the Security & Concierge Service, from Salix to SCC, was undertaken between Service/Operational Managers, HR and Finance staff as well as consultation with existing Security Service staff in respect of rota requirements. This exercise resulted in a revised annual cost of service of £316,703 (as outlined in the body of the report). The full saving from the transfer will be passed directly back to the tenants in the form of reduced weekly Service Charges. All cost will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that the service charge to tenants are providing best value.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: Deborah Derbyshire

The advice provided is that this is a service that will be brought back in house with the potential of TUPE.  Procurement recommend that a variation to the current contract in relation to the termination clause to be reduced from 6 months to 3 months. 

 

HR advice obtained: Michelle Brass

The Salix employees that are employed directly on the security contract will TUPE transfer to the Council on existing terms and conditions of employment (Salix contracts) as of 1st September 2021.  Under TUPE, the employees are protected entitling them to the same terms and conditions, with continuity of employment, as they had before the transfer.  To date there are 6 security guards employed who are in the scope of this transfer.

 

Salix have been carrying out formal consultation with the employees affected as part of the TUPE process, of which SCC have also been in attendance to ensure meaningful dialogue has taken place in advance of the transfer.  The measures initially suggested have since been amended following on from these consultation meetings, resulting in the requirement for the additional recruitment of 2 members of staff based on SCC terms and conditions.  This is currently out to advert.

 

The formal Employee liability information must be provided by Salix no later than 28 days prior to the transfer of the undertaking, it would be expected that Salix would work closely with the council HR & OD department on the implications of the transfer and provision of meaningful employee data prior to the 28 days to enable a smooth transition of employer/service provider and to enable the council to determine if any measures need to be introduced and consulted on.

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Paul Dennett, City Mayor , in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council Constitution do hereby:

 

1.    Approve the submission of a detailed application to the Regulator of Social Housing to register Derive RP as a Registered Provider and to delegate any further negotiations to the Interim Strategic Director of Place.

2.    Approve Derive RP’s Business Plan and the lending of £8.485M to Derive RP with the drafting of the legal agreements and any associated documentation delegated to the City Solicitor.

The Reasons are: To enable Salford City Council to take direct action to increase the provision of affordable housing within the city. The setting up of a Derive RP within a 100% owned Derive housing group structure will enable the council to lead that programme of intervention and hold the properties moving forward.

 

Options considered and rejected were: Legal advice was sought on the different options available with the recommendation that a new corporate group structure to include a registered provider subsidiary was established.

 

Assessment of Risk: Low

 

The source of funding is: SCC capital and Homes England grant funding.

 

Legal Advice obtained: Peter Hassett – Shared Legal Services & Matthew Waters Bevan Brittan LLP

 

The power to appoint to external bodies is a function exercised by the Elected City Mayor.

 

The Council has the power to provide funding under a range of powers including s.1 Localism Act 2011 and s.24 Local Government Act and s.24 Local Government Act 1988 (1988 Act), the latter providing the power to provide financial assistance for privately let housing. S.25 1988 Act requires that s.24 1988 Act (or any similar power) is not exercised without the consent of Secretary of State. Consent C of the 2010 General Consents provides a broad consent for financial assistance which would cover the proposed loans.

 

Financial Advice obtained: Chris Mee – Strategic Finance Manager – SCC

 

The capital and revenue cost implications for Derive RP are set out within the Part 2 report. There is provision within the councils approved 2021/22 capital programme for the proposed loan to Derive of £8.485m

 

Procurement Advice obtained: Not applicable at this stage.

 

HR Advice obtained: Not applicable.

 

Climate Change Advice obtained: In consultation with Mike Hemingway – Principal Officer – Climate Change SCC

 

The intention is for the homes owned and managed by Derive RP to make a positive contribution to the city’s efforts in relation to climate change and the low carbon agenda.? The planned homes are being designed and built to achieve a low carbon/low energy standard, using a fabric first low carbon/low energy approach helping to support policy priorities at a city and GM level for all new builds and ensuring on-going low energy costs for residents.?

The procurement of contractors to date has also included reference to social value which allows contractors to consider positive environmental impacts.??
