Executive Members' Announcements

Minutes:

Executive Member for Health and Public Protection:

 

The Executive Member for Health and Public Protection announced that, as a member of the NHS Fareham & Gosport and South Eastern Hampshire CCG Joint Governing Body, he had attended the Annual General Meeting last week and he explained that this Group is responsible for planning, purchasing and ensuring delivery of most of hospital, community and primary care NHS services.

 

At that meeting, it was stated that the NHS today is facing some of the toughest challenges it has ever had to address with increasing numbers of people to care for and pressure on finances, a growing elderly population and with difficulties in recruiting and retaining staff.  However, through the better local care programme, they feel they are having a real impact on the health and care of our local population and working more effectively with partners across the NHS, Social Care and the voluntary sector.  They are also developing and delivering new approaches to working more collectively and effectively on behalf of patients. 

 

The Executive Member for Health and Public Protection announced that on the finance side, it was reported that the CCG is responsible for funding of £573million and unfortunately, even after a lot of hard work, there will be a deficit of £5.2million for Fareham & Gosport at the end of the financial year.  This deficit triggered a Section 30 Report to the Secretary of State from the CCG's external auditors. 

 

At the meeting, they stated the focus for the 2018/19 would be the new care models which means supporting people to stay well, joined-up care for those with most complex needs, improving access to specialist care, integrating urgent and emergency care 24/7.  This means ensuring people only go to hospital when it is essential, and leave as soon as they are medically fit with the right support.

 

The Executive Member for Health and Public Protection said that it had been stated that GP Doctor recruitment was still a problem, but with plans ahead to perhaps change the way Doctors' surgeries operate in the future.

 

Executive Member for Leisure and Community:

 

The Executive Member for Leisure and Community was pleased to invite Members to join her in offering congratulations to the local independent charity, One Community, which has received the highest accolade for voluntary groups in the UK, the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.

Questions under Standing Order 17.2

To answer questions pursuant to Standing Order 17.2 for this meeting.

Minutes:

Question by Councillor P J Davies:

 

1.    Would the Executive Leader inform the Council when work will start on the Hampshire Rose site and when it is anticipated that the development will be completed?

 

2.    Would the Executive Leader inform the Council on the progress being made to develop land rear of Wynton Way adjacent to the former Kershaw Centre?

 

 

Response by the Executive Member for Housing:

 

  1. The planning approval for the site was issued on the 25th May following some final technical matters being resolved. This together with the Executive’s decision in April to progress the site means that Officers can now move forward with the steps necessary to develop the site. Due to particular ecology matters which need to be resolved on the site, development cannot commence until spring next year.  Officers will, however, continue to prepare for the construction phase to start late spring 2019, and anticipate that the works will be completed during the summer 2020.  A firmer programme will, however, be available once a contractor has been appointed.

 

  1. Since the site at Wynton Way was earmarked for potential housing development, two privately owned garages within the site have been purchased by the Council in order to secure the full site. The remaining portion of land is still owned by Hampshire County Council and terms had been agreed to acquire their land in 2015. Since this time there have been some changes for the adjacent Kershaw Centre with the original use ceasing and the building now temporarily being used whilst Fareham Day Centre is renovated. In due course, there may be increased clarity on the future of the Kershaw site which may provide an opportunity for a wider and more effective development. Officers continue to liaise with HCC about the site and at this stage discussions are ongoing in relation to land acquisition whilst we also consider the housing size and mix most appropriate for the area.

Motions under Standing Order 15

Members will be informed, prior to the meeting, of any motion duly notified in accordance with Standing Order 15 but received after print and dispatch of the agenda.

14(1)

Notice of Motion dated 04 June 2018 received from Councillors L Keeble and Mrs T L Ellis

“We propose that Fareham Borough Council writes to Hampshire County Council in respect of their weed spraying service.

 

Hampshire County Council undertake an annual weed spray service on Hampshire highways and paving as part of their weed control programme.  The frequency of the spraying, together with the fluctuations in weather is resulting in uncontrolled weed growth.  Apart from this making the Borough unsightly, it is also causing significant damage to the roads and pavements which in turn leads to far greater cost to the tax payer in repairs.

 

We would like this Council to support our Motion and write to Hampshire County Council asking them to increase the weed spraying frequency on highways and pavements within the Fareham Borough area”.

Minutes:
