Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

Grenfell Tower Tragedy

 

The Executive Leader announced that, given the nature of the tragic events at Grenfell Tower in London, he has asked the Chief Executive Officer to undertake a review of fire safety in all Council buildings.

 

The Executive Leader stated that this review will obviously need to take account of any lessons learnt from the cause of the Grenfell Tower fire, although at this stage it is too early to say what caused the fire to spread so quickly and the Council will need to understand the facts before completing its review.   The Executive Leader stated that the adequacy of Building Regulations will be one of the considerations of the public inquiry announced by the Prime Minister today.

 

Royal Visit

 

The Executive Leader announced that the Princess Royal will be flying into Solent Airport at Daedalus on the afternoon of Tuesday 27 June for an official business visit.  The Princess Royal will attend the Maritime Coastguard Agency’s search and rescue facility, CEMAST and Fareham Council’s Innovation Centre in recognition of the Council’s commemoration of 100 years of flying at Daedalus which the Council will be recognising with a families day on 16 September.

 

The Executive Leader stated that Princess Anne’s visit will help enormously in raising the profile of Solent Airport at Daedalus and indeed that of the Solent Enterprise Zone and the work of Fareham Borough Council’s investment in putting Daedalus firmly on the map for aviation, marine and aerospace advanced engineering jobs.

Executive Members' Announcements

Minutes:

Sainsbury’s Waste Less, Save More Project

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene announced that Sainsbury’s launched “Waste Less, Save More” in 2016, to help customers waste less food and save money.  The project works with local communities, led by a community group or local Council.

 

In 2016 the town of Swadlincote, Derbyshire was chosen to test a number of initiatives: and Fareham was chosen to be one of about 160 Discovery Communities across the country.

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene stated that in 2017 this group of Discovery Communities was invited to bid for a share of £1 million, under the next stage of the programme, and Fareham has been successful in receiving £30,000 of funding to work in local schools, and with Fareham Borough Council Housing and Housing Associations.

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene stated that a Food Saver Champion will be recruited by an agency to work on the Council’s behalf on the project and the project is also supported by Hampshire County Council as part of their waste prevention work.

 

The Council will encourage everyone to submit ideas and recipes, and to submit short video clips to feature on social media.

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene stated that the Council will run a competition for local schools to design a bag for restaurants to encourage diners to take home any food they cannot finish, to use later.  New housing tenants will be provided with Welcome Packs to help make the most of the food they buy, and a Packed Lunch Rescue will help parents providing packed lunches for school to avoid wasting food.

 

The project will focus on the Fareham South area - on one refuse collection round - where the Council can monitor the amounts of waste collected but it will, however, work with residents across the Borough, when requested, and as time allows.

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene stated that the Council will welcome any Members who are interested in becoming involved in keeping a food diary for a week and sharing their results.
