The Deputy Mayor noted that a number of items of business had been deferred to this meeting, as a result of the January Council meeting not completing its business, and whilst it was important that all the items on the agenda were dealt with, some items had a direct impact on the efficient and effective operation of the Council. To avoid the Council being disadvantaged by not dealing with these matters tonight, it was the Deputy Mayor’s suggestion to vary the order of business of tonight’s agenda by bringing forward items requiring decision. 

 

It was moved by Councillor Bright and seconded by Councillor Graham that items 14, 15, 16, 17, 22 and 23 be taken immediately after item 5 – Questions from the Public.

 

The motion was put to the vote and AGREED.

Questions from Members of the Public pdf icon PDF 57 KB

8 questions have been received from members of the public in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 10.

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Notice of eight questions had been received from members of the public:

 

PQ4 from Ms Reyes to the Leader of the Council – “Councillor Bright, you have representation in both Hertfordshire County Council and Hertsmere Borough Council and as we know REVIVA was allowed to be in Elstree and to stay in Elstree because of: Environment Agency, Hertfordshire County Council and Hertsmere Borough Council. Could you let us know why was REVIVA Composting allowed to operate in Woodcock Hill Farm first when according to its original licence their composting process was supposed to be in vessels, REVIVA was not supposed to be a nuisance to the residents and REVIVA was supposed to use only green waste and as we all know their composting process has been in open air, REVIVA has constituted not only a nuisance but a health hazard to not only residents of Elstree but surrounding areas and REVIVA had been using not only green waste and then after residents complains why was REVIVA allowed to move to green belt land in Elstree Hill South very close to a petrol station, 2 care homes, homes, 3 nurseries, 2 synagogues, a church, Centennial Park, few more businesses and The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital instead of shutting it down as they were in breach of their original licence?”

 

The Leader, Councillor Bright, responded jointly to both questions due to their common topic. He stated that the granting of planning permission was for a waste operation in Elstree and had to be addressed to Hertfordshire County Council, which was the waste planning authority, and not to Hertsmere Borough Council. 

 

Hertfordshire County Council approved the planning permission for the proposed change of use of land to a green waste recycling and composting operation at Elstree Hill South. Hertsmere Borough Council was only a consultee for this planning application and therefore provided comments on the proposed development back to Hertfordshire County Council. In the consultation response, Hertsmere’s Environmental Health stated  ‘we wish to bring to the attention of Hertfordshire County Council the possible detrimental impact this proposed site could have on the area, if planning permission is approved, due to the potential increase in air pollution, noise and odour. Composting does have the potential, where it is not properly controlled, to cause environmental pollution, harm to human health and nuisance through odours, leachate and potentially harmful bio-aerosols.’  It was also highlighted to Hertfordshire County Council that Environmental Health had in the past received noise and odour complaints from the operator’s existing composting site at Woodcock Hill Farm and felt that the same complaints would follow on to the next site, unless conditions were put in place to alleviate the problems. The consultation letter went on to outline that odour complaints from the old site had been received 500m and beyond, showing the extent to which the nuisance could travel. The current application also proposed to accept three times the quantity of green waste than Woodcock Hill Farm, which could potentially lead to an  ...  view the full minutes text for item 508.

The Leader reported on the following matters:

 

Executive meetings Update

 

13 December 2017

 

1.     Response to Policy Review Committee Recommendations - Street Markets Review

The Executive gave its formal response to the Policy Review Committee’s recommendations regarding the scrutiny review of Street Markets.  The Executive felt that, whilst the scrutiny review has produced some very sound recommendations, a measured approach should be taken therefore a panel of elected Members had been tasked with looking into the recommendations in further depth, and it was therefore agreed to extend the contract with the existing provider for a further two years from August 2018 to allow time to incorporate the relevant recommendations within the timescales and without adversely affecting the current financial position. 

 

2.     Commercial Development – Elstree Studios

The Executive received an update on the project to develop a new stage facility at the Studios. Regrettably, the current project had been put on hold as none of the bidders were able to meet the Council’s requirements.  On a more positive note, the Executive agreed to explore alternative development options which would be brought to the Executive for approval if and when identified, subject to demonstration of a viable case. 

 

3.     Executive Quarterly Review of Elstree Studios – Quarter 2

In accordance with the terms of the Governance Agreement between the Council and EFS, the second quarterly report on the financial performance elements of risk and business opportunities facing Elstree Film Studios was received.  Aside from the development project update mentioned earlier, the management accounts were in a very healthy state regardless of Brexit and that the outstanding issues with regard to the lease had now been resolved and the agreement close to being signed.

 

10 January 2018

 

1.     Budget Setting 2016/17

As part of the budget setting process, the Executive recommended the Council’s draft revenue budget for 2018/19 and the draft capital budget 2018/19 to 2020/21 for consultation by the Operations Review and Policy Review Committees, all Members and stakeholders.
