Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

The Executive Leader provided the Council with an update on the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Devolution bid.

 

The Executive Leader had recently attended a meeting in Petersfield which was attended by James Wharton, the Minister for Devolution. The Minister delivered a clear message that the Government was only interested in Devolution deals which include elected Mayors.

 

Following this, the Executive Leader had attended another meeting in Eastleigh last Friday with all Council leaders.  They discussed a number of issues around devolution, the first being the introduction of elected Mayors.  The Civil Servant present at the meeting confirmed that without opting for an elected Mayor for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, there was no Devolution deal available as the Government would be concentrating on those areas proposing elected Mayors.

 

The Executive Leader advised those present at the meeting that Fareham Borough Council did not support an elected Mayor for the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight geography along with the governance proposals which were being put forward locally and that was an almost unanimous view from those Council Leaders present.  The discussions moved on to consider whether negotiations should continue with the Government and the Executive Leader pointed out that an offer had been made to Government and that a response was still awaited either for the Government to agree or to come back with counter proposals.

 

Since then, the only noteworthy change was the Government announcing that business rates would be retained by all local authorities from 2020 and the other part of the offer included significant infrastructure guarantees and the ability to designate green belt.  In collecting opinions from those present at that meeting, the question was asked whether Councils would wish to continue with negotiations.  The response was that they wanted to hear from the Government what their offer might be but it was unlikely that there would be anything positive, although everyone still remained supportive of the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Devolution deal in principle providing various issues including governance could be satisfactorily resolved.

 

The general view in the room was they still wished to hear what the Government had to say and, asking around the room what people wished to do, a number of people – not a majority – thought that one option was to look at other options for Local Government which included Combined Authorities, Districts merging or sharing services or Unitarisation.

 

The Executive Leader confirmed that he has asked the Chief Executive Officer to investigate various structures around local Government and what they might mean for Fareham, highlighting the pros and cons of Combined Authorities, District mergers and Unitarisation.  This will be reported back to Members in due course and will reflect the current difficulty of a situation across local Government which will see revenue support from Government being removed in two years’ time, resulting in the need to make further savings.

Executive Members' Announcements

Minutes:

The Executive Member for Public Protection announced that he attended the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel at the end of last month where the main discussion was on the budget for 2016/17 which included the Police Precept. 

 

The Government announced in November that Police spending would be protected in real terms, but the Chancellor stated that the Police Crime Commissioner should plan on the basis that the overall referendum limit for Police Precept would be maintained at 2%.  It also became very clear during this discussion that the 108 additional Police Officers, as stated in the press, was incorrect, in that an increase of 1.99% would maintain 108 Police Officers.  A public consultation was held by the Commissioner which showed that 72% supported an increase in Council Tax of 1.99%.  This was agreed by the panel.  During these discussions, the Commissioner also agreed that he could find the additional funding to maintain the Hampshire Police Marine Unit.

 

Discussion took place on the Estates Plan, and it would appear the latest date for the Police in Fareham to move into the Civic Offices would be September 2016; a letter of intent has been received to confirm this and work has commenced with the PCC to finalise the terms.

 

Finally, interviews for the new Chief Constable's are currently taking place with 6 applicants.  The Commissioner's choice will be announced at the Crime Panel meeting on 11March and there will then be the opportunity to question the proposed Chief Constable and agree, or otherwise, on his or her position.

 

The Executive Member for Streetscene announced thatFareham Borough is backing the national 'Clean for The Queen' campaign which aims to give the country a tidy-up ahead of The Queen's 90th birthday in April. A special clean-up will take place from Friday 4 March - Sunday 6 March.

Fareham is holding its own 'Clean and Green for the Queen' campaign which will not only aim to clean up litter, but will also improve the horticultural features around the borough, alongside the Fareham in Bloom initiative.

Fareham Borough Council has a dedicated team that patrol and clean the Borough seven days a week, removing up to 700 tonnes a year of litter and debris from our streets and open spaces. Events such as this are welcomed to highlight the problem to the minority of residents who are not as considerate in disposing of their litter as the majority are, and to demonstrate that most of our residents do not want to see litter on our streets.

The Council is holding a clean-up event on Friday 4 March at Portchester car park and Precinct from 10am – 3.00pm, which anyone is welcome to attend and help out. Portchester Community Association, along with a team of volunteers, will be on hand to re-plant the shrub beds at the car park.

Residents can also get their own team of volunteers together to help make a lasting difference to their local area ready for the big event. The Council can provide some litter-pickers and plastic bags and will arrange for any litter collected to be picked up and disposed of.

 

The Executive Member for Leisure and Community informed Members that Hampshire County Council are holding a ten week Consultation in respect of Youth facilities.  This consultation will commence on Tuesday 23 February.

(Councillors B Bayford, Mrs S M Bayford, Miss S M Bell, J V Bryant, Mrs P M Bryant, T M Cartwright, P J Davies, Mrs M Ellerton, J M Englefield, K D Evans, G Fazackarley, Miss T Harper, Mrs C L A Hockley, L Keeble, T G Knight, A Mandry, Mrs K Mandry, D J Norris,  D L Steadman, D C S Swanbrow, N J Walker, D M Whittingham, and S D T Woodward voting in favour and Councillors R H Price, JP, Mrs K K Trott, P W Whittle and C J Wood voting against).

(c) a revenue budget for 2016/17 of £8,903,300; and

(d) a council tax for Fareham Borough Council for 2016/17 of £145.22 per band D property, which represents a £5.00 increase when compared to the current year.

 

15(3)

Council Tax 2016/17

Having made the necessary calculations in relation to its own budget, the Council must proceed to set the Council Tax for 2016/17 taking account of the amounts in precepts issued to the Council by Hampshire County Council, the Police & Crime Commissioner and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority. 

These precepts will not be issued before the publication of this agenda and therefore those that are available will be reported at the meeting, with provisional figures being given for those that are not yet approved. This is due to the timing of the Council Tax setting meeting scheduled for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority.

 

In order to enable Council Tax bills to be issued within the statutory timescale, it is recommended that the Council agrees to:

Delegate authority to the Director of Finance and Resources to amend the Council Tax for 2016/17, in the event that any of the precepting authorities change their precept calculation from that expected and reported at the Council meeting.

 

In accordance with the Local Authorities (Standing Orders) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2014, there will be a recorded vote on the budget decision.

 

(Note: a schedule will be circulated at the meeting showing the formal calculations the Council must make, incorporating any figures recommended by the Executive.  Members will also be advised of the wording of the formal resolution they must adopt to set the Council Tax for 2016/17, taking account of the requisite calculations and the precepts or expected precepts of Hampshire County Council, the Police & Crime Commissioner and Hampshire Fire Authority.)

 

Minutes:

RESOLVED that the Council agrees to delegate authority to the Director of Finance and Resources to amend the Council Tax for 2016/17, in the event that any of the precepting authorities change their precept calculation from that expected and reported at the Council meeting.

 

It was proposed by Councillor S D T Woodward and seconded by Councillor T M Cartwright that the Council accepts the recommendations of the Executive and approves:

(a)       the capital programme and financing of £36,959.00;

(b)       an overall revised revenue budget for 2015/16 of £9,174,600;

(c)        a revenue budget for 2016/17 of £8,903,300; and

(d)       a council tax for Fareham Borough Council for 2016/17 of £145.22 per band D property, which represents a £5.00 increase when compared to the current year.

 

The Council considered additional information tabled at the meeting: a schedule showing the formal calculations for setting the council tax and a graphical breakdown of council tax rates, as attached to these minutes.

 

In presenting the proposal, the Executive Leader reviewed the Council’s performance, success stories and outlined the agreed priorities.  He also reminded Members of notable achievements and looked to the challenges for the coming year. These included:

Fareham’s success in receiving a number of awards for various projects around the Borough as well as the Council receiving awards for some of the Partnership work the Council is involved with;

 

Four parks across the Borough have received complete refurbishments and 20 more receiving mini-makeovers.  A new Skate Park, designed by local skaters, was also completed;

 

Work on the Holly Hill Leisure Centre is due to be completed and open this summer with “Everyone Active” appointed to manage it.

 

The Executive Leader outlined how planning for the future is key: the adoption of the Welborne Plan and the Development Sites and Policies Plan sets out the long-term development plans for Borough, the latter covering the period to 2026 at the moment, and allocates housing sites within Fareham Town Centre and in other urban areas in the Borough.

 

Turning to the Council’s corporate policy to deliver new homes, tenants have moved to new properties and new thermally efficient homes are being built within the Borough.   16 affordable homes are due for completion this spring and work has also started on a new sheltered housing scheme.

 

The Council’s work with Vanguard has achieved over £500,000 of savings with some made from the changes made to how we provide our services.

 

In March 2015 the Council took ownership of Daedalus and The Innovation Centre was completed. With an occupancy rate of 90%, the Council has also secured £7m of funding to fund the provision of roads and services for the next phase of development. The Council also has an agreement in principle to lease land at Daedalus, subject to conditions, to National Grid.

 

The Executive Leader outlined that with Government cuts to funding being announced, there is a challenge to realise the savings which need to be made. Funding has changed since the Council first set its Council Tax and increases are required to meet the budget gap.  From 2018/19 the Council will receive no revenue support grant and will be solely reliant on income from businesses rates and Council tax.  Furthermore, the Transitional Grant Funding  received over the next two years, it is proposed will be set aside to assist with efficiency plans going through to 2019/20.

 

The Commercial Property Investment Strategy which has been established by the Council to look at new ways to invest its money was outlined and to date, £8m has been spent acquiring commercial properties.  Renting out surplus office space will also generate an income.

 

Looking at the Council’s capital programme, The General Fund capital programme for the next 5 years is a very generous £37m, focussed on delivering schemes on a prioritised basis. This is a fully funded programme, paid partly from resources that the Council has accumulated, and a large proportion attracted from external sources, thereby protecting the Council taxpayers. By 2020 it is estimated that there will be a surplus of £1.2 million but this relies on every scheme being completed on time and within budget.  Surplus resources are required to cover these situations and also for new schemes that may come online during the next 5 years.  Currently the capital resources are topped up by the use of the New Homes Bonus.  This however is unlikely to continue beyond 2016/17 as agreed policy allows the first call on the money to meet any shortfall in funding.

 

Turning to the revenue budget for Council housing expenditure, in 2016/17 this is estimated to be £12m with the principal source of income being rents. Alignment of Council rents with those of registered Landlords will bring an average weekly rent to £92 in 2016/17.

 

Summarising the budget, the Executive Leader outlined the following. The net budget for 2016/17 will amount to £8.9m; the budget is balanced: there is sufficient income to meet planned costs and it is sustainable; a robust budget will provide sufficient resources to fulfil our pledges; spending pressures known and accounted for in the budget; and sources of income to pay for services carefully estimated to reflect a realistic position and savings and efficiencies made and only those which are secured are included in the budget.

 

A Consultation exercise undertaken in January after the £5 increase option was made available to Fareham showed that 85% of respondents agreed an increase was a reasonable option with some indicating they would be willing to pay more; and 89% of respondents agreed that the investment in commercial property and renting out office space was the way forward.

 

The sum of £6,100,068 must be raised from the Council’s taxpayers.  Therefore, a Council Tax for band D properties will be £145.22.  This would be the first increase since 2009.

 

The overall position for Fareham’s taxpayers will be:

Fareham Borough Council £145.22, a £5 or 3.57% increase

Hampshire County Council £1079.28, a 3.99% increase

Police and Crime Commissioner £160.46, a 1.99% increase

Hampshire Fire and Rescue £62.60, a 1.99% increase

Total £1,477.56, which represents a 3.63% increase

 

Fareham has most properties in Band C and here the Council Tax for two adults will still be £129.08 or just £2.48 per week. This proposed £5 increase means an additional charge of less than 1p a day for those in a Band C property which still makes Fareham's Council Tax one of the lowest "district" rates in England.

 

On the recommendations being put to the meeting, it was declared CARRIED unanimously.

 

(Councillors B Bayford, Mrs S M Bayford, Miss S M Bell, J V Bryant, Mrs P M Bryant, T M Cartwright, P J Davies, Mrs M Ellerton, J M Englefield, K D Evans, G Fazackarley, Miss T Harper, Mrs C L A Hockley, L Keeble, T G Knight, A Mandry, Mrs K Mandry, D J Norris, R H Price, JP,  D L Steadman, D C S Swanbrow, Mrs K K Trott, N J Walker, D M Whittingham, P W Whittle, C J Wood and S D T Woodward voting in favour).

 

RESOLVED that the recommendations of the Executive be accepted and accordingly the Council approved the details as set out in the tabled schedule for item 15(3) as appended to these minutes, and:

 

(a)       the capital programme and financing of £36,959.00;

(b)       an overall revised revenue budget for 2015/16 of £9,174,600;

(c)        a revenue budget for 2016/17 of £8,903,300; and

(d)       a council tax for Fareham Borough Council for 2016/17 of £145.22 per band D property, which represents a £5.00 increase when compared to the current year.
