Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

UPGRADE OF THE CIVICA AND POWERSUITE IT SYSTEMS.

 

I, Councillor David Lancaster, Lead Member for Environment and Community Safety, in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council’s Constitution do hereby approve the virement of £0.200m within the 2020/21 Place (Regulatory Services) capital programme to finance the upgrade of the Civica and Powersuite IT systems. 

 

 

The Reasons:

 

The current contract for two systems used by Regulatory Services and Cleansing- Civica App (Regulatory Services software) and Powersuite (Refuse Collection Rounds Management Software), is coming to an end in March 2021. The software supplier for these systems is Civica.

 

Corporate IT have undertaken an option appraisal and recommend that Civica are re-contracted to provide upgraded web-based versions of both systems.  The upgrade can be undertaken as a capitalised one-off cost at £200k if an order is placed by 21 December 2020. 

 

Assessment of Risk is Low: There is a low likelihood the resource being vired to finance the upgrade will be required from Enforcement team by 31 March 2021

10/11/2020 - Salford City Council (Swinton Greenway, Various Streets, Swinton and Eccles, Salford) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting, School Keep Clear, Loading Parking Places, 20 mph Speed Limit Zone, Footway Conversion to a Shared Use Unsegregated Footway ref: 760    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Made at meeting: 10/11/2020 - Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Decision published: 17/11/2020

Effective from: 25/11/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Derek Antrobus, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby authorise the making of the amended Traffic Regulation Order to introduce Salford City Council (Swinton Greenway, Various Streets, Swinton and Eccles, Salford) (Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting, School Keep Clear, Loading Bay, 20 mph Speed Limit, Footway Conversion to a Shared Use, Unsegregated Footway/Cycle Track, Zebra and Toucan Crossings, Road Humps and Amendment) Order 2020, subject to consideration being given to the following:

 

Junction 10 Folly Lane

 

§  Reducing the extent of the proposed parking restrictions to provide some additional space for alternative parking in the area.

 

§  Investigating the possibility of implementing the suggestion made by one of the objectors, for the residents affected by the restrictions to be offered the option of a dropped kerb being installed to the front of their property, enabling them to create off-street parking spaces should they wish to do so.

 

§  Providing an enforceable disabled parking bay for the objector residing at No. 206 Folly Lane to be located as near as possible to his property.

 

Junction 13 Pine Grove

 

§  Removing the No Waiting At Any Time restrictions from the scheme.

 

The Reasons are:

Salford City Council has developed plans to improve the cycling routes between Swinton and Monton, extending Salford’s existing traffic-free cycle network. The Swinton Greenway proposals will improve both off-road and on-road links to encourage cycling and walking in Salford, promoting more sustainable travel and helping to create healthier and more attractive neighbourhoods. It is designed in conjunction with proposals to ensure connectivity to Salford’s wider walking and cycling network.

Swinton Greenway will include the 2.5km route between Manchester Road, Swinton and Monton Road, Monton with several additional links to schools, colleges and the wider community to improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists as much as possible.  

The majority of the off-road link is an existing route (mainly definitive footpath) that extends from Monton Road through to A6 Manchester Road in Swinton, which will be widened in places and upgraded to facilitate an upgraded shared cycle and pedestrian route. There are various junctions, where the off-highway route links into the adopted highway. The proposed highway works will provide continuity to the route, which, in turn, connects to a wider network of plans for improvements to existing infrastructure that will encourage and promote walking and cycling.

The scheme proposes to introduce shared pedestrian and cycle paths, new controlled and uncontrolled crossing facilities, introduction of 20 mph zones and new parking restrictions as well as amendments to existing restrictions to deliver the infrastructure and ensure that the full benefits of the scheme are delivered.

Details of the proposals can be viewed in the accompanying documents and plans.

 

Options considered and rejected:

With regard to Junction 10 Folly Lane, officers have undertaken rigorous investigations with a view to identifying a reasonable viable alternative location for the crossing point without success.  The introduction of a residents’ parking scheme on South Avenue is not considered to be appropriate as it would be unlikely to benefit the residents affected by the restrictions.  A safe crossing point has been a long-term ambition for the area in order to ensure the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. The above-mentioned considerations have been included with a view to mitigating the impact of the restrictions on the residents affected where possible.

 

Assessment of Risk: Low Risk

The restrictions will be marked out in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions. (TSRGD 2016).

 

Legal Advice obtained: N/A  

 

Financial Advice obtained:     

The proposed scheme will be funded from the Mayor’s Challenge Fund (MCF) subject to full business case approval. Works are anticipated to commence on site during Autumn 2020.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: N/A

10/11/2020 - Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) ref: 757    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 10/11/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 11/11/2020

Effective from: 04/12/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I, Paul Dennett, City Mayor in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution, and all other powers available to me do hereby withdraw the decision I made in consultation with the Cabinet on the 11th November 2020 as follows:

 

1.    Approve the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020, 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 between 1 December 2020 and 26 January 2021;

 

2.    Recommend that Council approves the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020 for submission to the Secretary of State for examination following the period for representations;

 

3.    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;

 

4.    Delegate authority to the Lead Chief Executive, Housing, Homelessness and Infrastructure, in consultation with the Portfolio Leader for Housing, Homelessness and Infrastructure to make minor or non-material amendments to the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020 and background documents prior to their publication.

 

The Reasons are:

 

Bury Metropolitan Borough Council have withdrawn their Cabinet decision of the 11th November 2020 relating to publication of the GMSF. If Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council decide to proceed with the GMSF at their Council meeting on 3rd December, Bury MBC will have to agree again to proceed. That will require a Cabinet meeting with 5 clear days’ notice and is therefore unlikely to be held before the 15th December 2020. Consultation could not start before then. As the existing Cabinet/Executive decisions have a start date for the consultation of 1st December 2020, a new consultation period would have to be agreed to again by all 10 Greater Manchester authority Cabinets/Executive/Mayor. Accordingly, this decision would have to be taken again.

 

Options considered and rejected were: Not to withdraw the decision and proceed with a call-in meeting arranged for 27th November 2020 in relation to the original decision of the 11th November 2020. As set out above, the decision will have to be reconsidered either as a whole or with reference to the consultation dates. As it is not a decision that will be implemented in its current form it is not relevant to scrutinise it in its current form. Any future decision will be subject to scrutiny procedures. Therefore, this option was rejected.

 

 

Assessment of Risk: As set out above, as this is not a decision that will be implemented in its current form it is not relevant to scrutinise it in its current form. Any future decision will be subject to scrutiny procedures.

 

The source of funding is: No finance costs associated with the Publication stage of the GMSF.

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:

 

5.    Approve the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020, 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 between 1 December 2020 and 26 January 2021;

 

6.    Recommend that Council approves the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020 for submission to the Secretary of State for examination following the period for representations;

 

7.    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;

 

8.    Delegate authority to the Lead Chief Executive, Housing, Homelessness and Infrastructure, in consultation with the Portfolio Leader for Housing, Homelessness and Infrastructure to make minor or non-material amendments to the GMSF: Publication Draft 2020 and background documents prior to their publication.

 

The Reasons are: To continue making progress towards adoption of the GMSF and provide an opportunity for the community and other stakeholders to make representations on the Publication GMSF document before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for examination.

Cabinet also recognised the important contribution the GMSF can make to Salford and Greater Manchester’s sustainable future, particularly due to:

-       The provision of 50,000 affordable homes;

-       Ambitions to reduce carbon through renewable energy schemes and by promoting zero carbon development from 2028. The GMSF supports extensive mossland restoration, with the significant majority of valuable habitats protected;

-       The brownfield-first approach, including proposals at the conurbation core for 75% of new homes to be delivered in two wards, which enables the impact of the delivery of new family homes to be minimised. 7.5% of new homes will be on land currently in the Green Belt, in wards which accommodate 50% of the City’s open space; and,

-       Proposals in Salford that would see a net increase in Green Belt. Salford is the only district where this would be the case.

-       GMSF will protect the City from unsustainable development, and is one of our best defences to avoid a chaotic approach to development in the City and planning by appeal.

 

Options considered and rejected were: Not to progress with the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework. Given the need for a strategic plan covering the whole of the city-region, work undertaken to date, and the council’s ongoing commitment to progressing the GMSF towards adoption, this option was rejected.

 

Assessment of Risk: The GMSF has been under production for a number of years. Significant challenges have been made to the 2016 and 2019 draft versions, from various parties including local residents, landowners / developers and statutory consultees. It is likely that such representations will also be made to the Publication Plan. The GMSF 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: No finance costs associated with the Publication stage of the GMSF.

In addition to the above Greater Manchester / Plan-wide background papers, additional papers have been produced that are specifically related to each of the proposed allocations. Copies of all these documents are also available at the link above.

 

Specifically relating to the allocations in Salford, the list below identifies the documents that have been published on the GMCA website. Note that as part of this, technical assessments that have been produced on behalf of the majority landowner in support of three of the GMSF site allocations which they are promoting in Salford were published (Hazelhurst Farm, East of Boothstown, and Port Salford extension). These documents have not been subject to a comprehensive review by the relevant departments within the city council or any relevant external organisations such as the Greater Manchester Ecology Unit. As such, they are not endorsed by the city council or the GMCA at this stage, but rather published for information as key pieces of technical work undertaken on behalf of the majority landowner of the site. The conclusions drawn in these reports are outlined for information, where relevant, in the Topic Papers for each of the 4 allocations.
