Matters Referred to the Cabinet by a Committee - Reference from the Resources and Services Overview & Scrutiny Committee - A.7 - Joint Use Sports Facilities Update pdf icon PDF 146 KB

To enable the Cabinet to consider its response to recommendations made by the Resources and Services Overview & Scrutiny Committee following that Committee’s consideration of an update on the Joint Use Sports Facilities.

Decision:

That the recommendation made by the Resources and Services Overview & Scrutiny Committee be noted and that the response of the Leisure and Tourism Portfolio Holder thereto be endorsed.

Minutes:

As reported in detail under Minute 146 above, Councillor Ivan Henderson had declared a Personal Interest in this matter but that he had been granted a Dispensation by the Monitoring Officer.

 

Cabinet was aware that, at its meeting held on 14 March 2022 (Minute 65 referred), the Resources and Services Overview & Scrutiny Committee (“the Committee”) had received an update on progress with the Joint Use Sports Centre transition process at Brightlingsea and Harwich, following the end of joint use agreements with the Sigma Trust on 31 December 2021.

 

As part of that update, the Committee was provided with a written report from the Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Tourism. That report had referenced, inter alia, the following matters:-

 

·      “Following on from the Cabinet report, Sigma Trust have agreed to keep their facilities open to the community and are working with Council Officers to accommodate as many of the existing customer base as possible.  Updates are being provided to the respective Town Councils via the Joint Use Facilities Transition Period and Engagement Group which has met regularly since the start of 2022.

·      The Council has arranged for a single point of contact at both sites, who are available to support existing users/hirers.  These Officers have and will continue to support hirers who may have challenges in making the transition.

·      To date over 90% of current hirers (50 out of 55) at Brightlingsea and Harwich Sports Centres have either agreed and signed new booking forms with Sigma Trust, or agreed in principal to the new conditions and Sigma are awaiting forms to be returned.

·      There has been a trend at Brightlingsea towards block bookings and at Harwich towards more casual use.  As the Sigma Trust cannot accommodate casual use, an action plan was devised of how casual use could be converted to hirers.  The plan which is being worked through by the single point of contact at each site is set out in Section 2 of the Portfolio Holder’s report.

·      In addition to the work above, local people have been asked if they are interested in establishing a new club or clubs, which would allow racket sports to continue under the management of the Sigma Trust.  The deadline for responses has now passed and a meeting with those interested is being arranged.  Around 20 people have come forward in Harwich and there has been no response in Brightlingsea to date.

·      Given the level of interest shown by users in Harwich to form a club, the Council will work closely to support the formation of a racket sports club to block book from the Sigma Trust, and will look to invest to support its development.

·      The Leader of the Council agreed at Council in February 2022 to include the proposal for investment in sports facilities in Harwich and Brightlingsea to come forward through the Corporate Investment Plan. He reiterated this point at Cabinet February 2022, and agreed that officers will develop options to be considered by Cabinet in March.

Leader of the Council's Items - A.8 - Freeport East Full Business Case pdf icon PDF 403 KB

To ask Cabinet to support the submission of the Freeport East Full Business Case, to approve the Council’s participation in the governance of Freeport, the approach to business rate retention set out in the report, and to recommend to Full Council seeking approval that Freeport East is consistent with the Council’s priorities and policy framework as set out in the Corporate Plan 2020-2024, in particular a growing and inclusive economy.

Decision:

That Cabinet -

 

a)     formally supports the Freeport East Full Business Case to be submitted by East Suffolk District Council to the Government;

 

b)     agrees to the approach to local business rate retention, as set out in the Full Business Case and summarised in the Leader’s report;

 

c)      agrees that the Leader of the Council and Officers can participate in the governance proposals set out in the Full Business Case on the principle that Tendring District Council becomes a member of the body set up to govern the Freeport;

 

d)     notes that any decision to formally become part of the governing body will be taken by the Leader of the Council, in accordance with previous delegations, following consultation with his Portfolio Holder Working Party;

 

e)     approves the Leader of the Council appointing a Member representative to that governing body;

 

f)       assigns £160,000 to pay for projects in support of Freeport East to be agreed through the Freeport governance structure and notes that the Full Business Case sets out the expectation that this sum should be repaid to the Council from future retained business rates; and

 

g)     recommends to Full Council that Freeport East be confirmed within the Council’s Budget and Policy Framework, and included as part of the Corporate Plan 2020-2024, as previously adopted by Full Council.

 

Minutes:

Cabinet gave consideration to a detailed report of the Leader of the Council (A.8) which sought its support for the submission of the Freeport East Full Business Case; to approve the Council’s participation in the governance of Freeport; the approach to business rate retention set out in the report; and to recommend to Full Council that it confirms that Freeport East is consistent with the Council’s priorities and policy framework, as set out in the Corporate Plan 2020-2024, in particular, a growing and inclusive economy.

 

It was reported that, on 13 December 2021, the outline business case had been formally approved by Government and that the three tax sites in Felixstowe, Harwich and at Gateway 14 near Stowmarket had been agreed, published on GOV.UK and the necessary Statutory Instruments laid to enshrine them in legislation. 

 

Freeports

 

Members were reminded that the Government aim for Freeports was to attract businesses that imported, processed and add valued to goods, and then to re-export those goods. At a Freeport, imports could enter certain sites with simplified customs documentation and without paying tariffs. Businesses operating inside designated areas in and around the port could then manufacture goods using the imports and add value before exporting them, again without full tariffs or customs procedures. If the goods moved out of the Freeport into another part of the UK, then they had to undergo the full import process, including paying any tariffs.

 

It was proposed that Freeports would be part funded by retained business rates, which was the share of business rates retained by central government.  Government had proposed that, for Freeports, the retained business rate scheme would offer the opportunity for billing authorities to retain more business rates than they otherwise would have.  This was effectively extra funding for the area.  Money would be available to be spent supporting the development and delivery of the Freeport sites themselves, and to deliver on the wider Freeport policy objectives of improving infrastructure, skills, innovation, investment, trade and net zero initiatives, benefiting residents in the area surrounding the Freeport, including almost all of the District of Tendring.

 

Freeport East

 

Cabinet was aware that Freeport East was based around the Port of Felixstowe and Harwich International Port, and included the Gateway 14 Site in Stowmarket, Suffolk.  It comprised 275 hectares of space and facilities across three sites eligible for tax relief (”Tax Sites”) at Felixstowe dock, Bathside Bay in Harwich, and Gateway 14 in Stowmarket.  Those sites were also eligible for customs duty relief, and there were four additional sites also eligible for customs reliefs (“Customs Sites”). 

 

Members recalled that the Harwich Tax Site was intended to be developed as a Clean Energy Hub and thereby create 1,900 jobs. The tax site was largely comprised of areas to be reclaimed from the sea in order to provide a development platform.  Significant third party funding in the region of £80m would be required for this site in addition to funding from the Port, the potential future users of  ...  view the full minutes text for item 151.

Cabinet Members' Items - Report of the Corporate Finance and Governance Portfolio Holder - A.2 - Digital Transformation Phase Two Completion Performance Analysis and Exploration of Further Digital Investment Opportunities pdf icon PDF 302 KB

This report covers the following two key strands:

 

1.       A review of the digital transformation phase two programme and report the deliverables, outturn and analysis; and

 

2.    To set out potential further investment opportunities for consideration via the Corporate Investment Plan.

 

Additional documents:

Decision:

That Cabinet -

 

(a)  notes the outcomes of the digital transformation (phase two) programme within the context of timescales, costs and outcomes; and

 

(b)  request Officers, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Corporate Finance and Governance, to develop the projects, as set out within Appendix B to item A.2 of the Report of the Corporate Finance & Governance Portfolio Holder, for  further consideration as part of the Corporate Investment Plan.

 

Minutes:

Cabinet gave consideration to a report of the Corporate Finance & Governance Portfolio Holder (A.2) which:-

 

1.      reviewed the outcome of the digital transformation phase two programme and reported the deliverables, outturn and analysis; and

 

2.      set out potential further investment opportunities for consideration via the Corporate Investment Plan.

 

Cabinet recalled that, at its meeting held on 16 February 2018, it had approved a Digital Transformation programme of works with estimated capital one-off costs of £865,200 and ongoing revenue costs of £220,500 per annum. That programme had comprised three key strands of investment, as follows:

 

1)      a new MyTendring council self-service web portal providing services 24/7;

 

2)      a Cloud Migration Strategy, migrating IT systems and data storage from Council-owned/ maintained hardware to rented pay-as-you-go Microsoft Azure platform resources; and

 

3)      a new Council smartphoneLoveTendring ‘Tourism and Events’ App to promote tourism events. This was a new technology opportunity trial for the Council. 

 

Performance details of the digital transformation programme were provided in Appendix A to the Portfolio Holder’s report. A summary of the key programme performance and deliverables was as follows:

 

·      From a programme time perspective the deliverables had been severely delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to divert limited resources to support higher council priorities e.g. IT enabled council business continuity and local economy supporting business grants enablement.

 

·      From a cost perspective the original / scoped programme had been delivered within budget.

 

·      From a deliverable quality perspective 19,382 registered subscribers used the MyTendring service - more than one in four Tendring households. Growth forecasts suggested 24,000 subscribers by June 2022 - one in three Tendring households. Promotional marketing was planned throughout 2022.

 

·      MyTendring service users rated their service satisfaction at 4.6 stars out of 5 stars average or 92% very satisfied and had raised 19,400 customer self-service requests during the last 12 months.

 

·      19,400 self-service requests equated to a council average resource saving of £59,173 per annum or 10.5% ROI per annum based upon the capital investment.

 

·      MyTendring self-service was a key local economy COVID business grant supporting access channel - 4,686 MyTendring self-service grant applications had been processed, and growing.

 

·      The adopted Cloud migration strategy had enabled seamless council business continuity during the COVID pandemic – TDC’s aging on-premises infrastructure simply could not have supported the necessary overnight switch to remote working and self-service. TDC’s disaster recovery response position was also greatly strengthened.

 

·      The Council’s cybersecurity had been significantly strengthened through Microsoft’s £5 billion investments in cloud-only cybersecurity protective services.

 

·      The re-engineered/ re-launched LoveTendring App had achieved 1,351 downloads between July and August 2021 - promoting leisure and tourism events and real-time District-wide beach crowding (social-distancing) information. Rated third overall in the Google Appstore ‘events App category’ ratings (September 2021) further enhancements were planned for 2022.

 

·      The programme had facilitated the development of an in-house digital developer skills resource delivering ongoing and new service efficiencies, cost savings, cost avoidances, innovative support applications, partner working opportunities.

To update Cabinet on the progress with the Corporate Investment Plan and to recommend investment in four projects along with the acceptance of grant funding to support the development of further projects.

Decision:

That Cabinet –

 

a)     notes the latest Corporate Investment Plan, as set out within Appendix A to item A.3 of the Report of the Corporate Finance & Governance Portfolio Holder;

 

b)     notes the review of Existing Earmarked Budgets, as set out within Appendix C to the aforesaid report and approves that the Category C budgets highlighted within that Appendix be brought together in order to establish a Corporate Investment ‘Reserve’ totalling £2,557,680;

 

c)      agrees that £265,000 from the Corporate Investment ‘Reserve’, along with £400,000 of external funding, be used to fund the following four items as set out later on in the Portfolio Holder’s report and Appendix A thereto:

 

i)        contribution to Freeport East - £160,000

ii)       support the Joint Use Sports Centre Transition - £25,000

iii)      host a ‘leg’ of the Elite Cycling Tour Series - £80,000

iv)      health inequalities capacity and projects - £400,000

 

d)     authorises Officers, in consultation with the relevant Portfolio Holders, and acting in accordance with the Council’s Scheme of Delegation, to agree the necessary arrangements to implement the above four items; and

 

e)     agrees to the acceptance of a grant from our Local Health Partner of £1.65m, and requests Officers to continue to develop schemes and projects that can be supported by this funding for consideration within the Corporate Investment Plan process.

Minutes:

Cabinet gave consideration to a report of the Corporate Finance & Governance Portfolio Holder (A.3) which updated it on the progress with the Corporate Investment Plan and recommended investment in four projects along with the acceptance of grant funding to support the development of further projects.

 

Cabinet recalled that, at its meeting held on 25 February 2022, it had agreed to implement a Corporate Investment Plan approach to investment and to establish a Corporate Investment Board. Cabinet had also asked Portfolio Holders to explore with Officers further items for consideration by the proposed first meeting of the Corporate Investment Board in March 2022.

 

Members were reminded that the Corporate Investment Plan approach included a pipeline of projects and a Corporate Investment Board that would regularly consider the pipeline of projects and give their view on those that should progress towards a formal decision. Priority drivers would help decision makers to prioritise and choose between competing proposals, and funding would be allocated, or reallocated, to a Corporate Investment Fund to enable the Council to put resources to the recommended projects from the pipeline. 

 

Cabinet was aware that the Corporate Investment Plan did not impact on the current decision making framework within the Council, with the same level of transparency for Officer, Portfolio Holder and Cabinet decisions and the associated scrutiny and “call-in” processes.

 

It was reported that the Corporate Investment Board had met for the first time on 15 March 2022 and had considered:-

 

·      the Terms of Reference for the Board, including the priority drivers from the February 2022 Cabinet Report;

·      the current pipeline of projects; and

·      from the pipeline, the projects proposed to move forward for decision.

 

That meeting had been attended by the Leader of the Council and the Deputy Leader of the Council, together with the Chief Executive, the Section 151 Officer and the Interim Corporate Director (Projects Delivery).

 

The Corporate Investment Board expressed its view that the following projects should be funded and progressed to the formal decision stage:-

 

Freeport East - £160,000 Skills and regeneration contribution

 

This contribution covered two years’ revenue funding from 2022-2024. It was proposed to enable the partner organisations to implement important regeneration activities alongside the infrastructure work on the Freeport sites in order to demonstrate progress on issues such as skills, innovation and net zero before the Freeport generated business rates income to re-invest.

 

Joint Use Sports Centres Transition – £25,000 contribution to support continued community use

 

It was proposed to provide financial support directly to local clubs and organisations in order to enable them to continue to undertake and provide sports and leisure activities to their local communities.

 

Elite Cycling Tour Series - £80,000

 

In order to support the cost of hosting a ‘leg’ of the national elite cycling tour series within the Clacton Town Centre during the month of May 2022. The event would attract visitors to the town centre and allow shops to remain open later and benefit from additional trade. Significant publicity was expected, including national and international  ...  view the full minutes text for item 154.

Cabinet Members' Items - Joint Report of the Corporate Finance and Governance Portfolio Holder and the Housing Portfolio Holder - A.6 - Freehold Purchase of a Residential Property in Clacton-on-Sea pdf icon PDF 327 KB

To seek approval, in principle, from Cabinet for the freehold purchase of a two bedroom residential property in Clacton-on-Sea to meet local housing needs.

Decision:

That Cabinet authorises, in principle, the freehold purchase of the property.

Minutes:

Cabinet had before it a detailed joint report of the Corporate Finance & Governance Portfolio Holder and the Housing Portfolio Holder (A.6) which sought its approval, in principle, for the freehold purchase of a two bedroom residential property in Clacton-on-Sea to help meet local housing needs. 

 

It was reported that this proposal was in respect of an opportunity to purchase a two bedroom ex-Council house that was currently being offered under the Right of First Refusal buy back period in Clacton-on-Sea.

 

Members made aware that, for a number of years, the Council had had a strong demand for two bedroom houses and that this property met the criteria set out in the Council’s adopted Housing Acquisitions and Development Strategy.

 

Cabinet was informed that that, in January 2022, the required Portfolio Holder approval had been obtained in order to initiate the Council’s Property Dealing Procedure; to obtain an independent valuation of the property; and to negotiate a price with the owners.

 

Cabinet was further informed that an independent market valuation had now been obtained and negotiations with the owner had been completed satisfactorily which would enable the purchase to be progressed to a conclusion.

 

It was felt that whilst the purchase of the property carried a financial cost it would bring an additional dwelling into the housing stock that would help meet a local housing need and would immediately generate rental income and it was therefore:-

 

It was moved by Councillor Stock OBE, seconded by Councillor P B Honeywood and:-

 

RESOLVED that Cabinet authorises, in principle, the freehold purchase of the property.
