Minutes:

Apologies for absence had been received from Councillors Clapper, Donne, Kelly, Rutledge, A Sachdev, M Sachdev and West, and apologies for lateness from Councillors Graham, P Hodgson-Jones and R Butler.

 

The Mayor noted that a number of items of business had been deferred to this meeting, as a result of the previous meetings not completing their 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 Mayor’s suggestion to vary the order of business by bringing forward items requiring decision and taking similar items together.

 

It was moved by Councillor Bright and seconded by Councillor Graham

that items 28, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 20, 35 and 36 be taken immediately after item 5, followed by items 16, 17, 29, 6, 8, 10, 31, 7, 9, 11, 32, 12, 14, 13, 15, 30, 33 and 34.

Two Executive meetings took place since the last report:

 

Executive - 16 May 2018

 

1.    ICT Disaster Recovery Update

 

The Council approved funding last November to provide a public cloud disaster recovery solution and business continuity facilities at the Waste Depot.  Further to that decision and on the recommendation of the Society for IT practitioners in the Public Sector (SOCITM), the Executive agreed to amend the way the solution is delivered.  The new model would best meet the Council’s particular requirements and align well with the ICT Strategy.

 

2.    Empty Homes Strategy 2018 to 2022

 

This was considered earlier.

 

3.    2020 Vision Annual Report 2017/18 and Corporate Action Plan 2018/19

 

This was considered earlier.

The Executive examined the Council’s performance for the last Quarter of 2016/17.  Approximately 65% of the targets were classed as green.

 

5.    Granting of Leases

 

New leases were granted in respect of five sites: The Studios Estate, Borehamwood; Longwood School, Bushey; Borehamwood Football Club; Land at Oakridge Lane, Aldenham; and the former Bushey Fire Station.

 

Executive - 20 June 2018

This was considered earlier.

 

2.    Hertsmere Developments Limited Business Plan and Associated Matters

 

This was considered earlier.

 

3.    Insurance Contract Award

 

A number of the Council’s insurance contracts, due to expire at the end of this month, were awarded.  These include Employers and Public Liability cover as well as insurance to protect assets (property and fleet). Saving of £50k per year against the current insurance contracts would be factored into the Revenue Budget 2019/20.

 

·         Local Strategic Partnership - 12 June 2018

 

1.    NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans

 

The NHS WAS going through a process of change to enable the services they offer to become more sustainable. The presentation explained the progress made so far by the Hertfordshire and West Essex Sustainable and Transformation Partnership.

 

The partnership categorized Hertsmere as three neighbourhoods compromising of roughly 30,000 people. The partnership placed great value on the influence of the community to keep residents out of hospitals, GP surgeries and other care services. The proposed model realigned the services of commissioners and providers to be more integrated into our communities.

 

Another development was health providers in the borough were starting to work together for the first time through the Hertsmere Locality Forum. The next steps involved a greater involvement of Hertsmere Borough Council to work with these providers to share expertise.

 

2.    Whole Systems Approach to Obesity Pilot

 

Hertsmere Borough Council was recently invited by Public Health Hertfordshire and Leeds Beckett University to take part in the pioneering research stage of a national pilot which looks at a ‘Whole Systems Approach to Tackling Obesity’.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 119.
