Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

The Executive Leader announced that the Council has set up a collection point at the Civic Offices for items to be sent to the Ukraine via Jacob’s Well which has had a great response with many donations being received.  The Executive Leader advised that the Polish Embassy has stated, on behalf of the Polish Government, that whilst the donations and kindness of everyone is very much appreciated, due to the logistics of lorries getting through and the resources in sorting the items and getting them to those in need, it would be preferable if individuals made financial donations instead via recognised organisations such as the Red Cross.  This way the donations can be used to buy what is required locally and distributed directly.

 

The Executive Leader stated therefore that from 07 March the collection point at the Civic Offices will no longer be used and remaining items will be sent to Jacob’s Well who will arrange for the items to be sent to Romania by road.

 

The Executive Leader announced the Council has received a high number of enquiries from people who wish to offer rooms for refugees but at this time, the Council is waiting for Government advice from the Home Office, and he urged individuals to await that advice until the Council is in a position to understand what is required and how this will be managed.

 

The Executive Leader reiterated his thanks on behalf of the Council for all of the donations made to date.

Housing Scrutiny Panel – 03 February 2022

 

Minute 8 – Draft Housing & Rough Sleeping Strategy Adoption

 

At the invitation of the Chairman, Councillor Mrs T L Ellis addressed the Panel on this item.

 

The Panel received a report by the Deputy Chief Executive Officer which presented the Draft Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy and accompanying Delivery Plan for members consideration following completion of a period of public consultation.  The report set out the key findings of the consultation and asked that the Panel consider the Strategy prior to referral to the Executive at its forthcoming meeting on 07 March 2022.

 

Members raised concern that there may be an increase in homelessness and rough sleeping as a result of people losing their homes through fuel poverty and the rising cost of living.  The Head of Housing and Benefits advised that the Delivery Plan aims to assess data to provide an understanding of future needs so that a more strategic approach can be taken to ensure people in need ask for assistance at an early stage so that they can be signposted to organisations who can help.  The Panel discussed the need to ensure that services and assistance are well publicised and suggested that in addition to information being provided on the website, Council noticeboards and local community hubs could be used to raise awareness of help that is available.

 

RESOLVED that the Housing Scrutiny Panel:

 

(a)  considered the Draft Homelessness & Rough Sleeping Strategy attached at Appendix B to the report;

 

(b)  considered the Draft Delivery Plan attached at Appendix C to the report; and

 

(c)  recommends to the Executive that they adopt the Draft Homelessness & Rough Sleeping Strategy and Draft Delivery Plan at their forthcoming meeting on 07 March 2022.
