Part C - General Information

1.

Full Licensing Committee - Change of Date

With the permission of the Chairman the full Licensing Committee scheduled for 1st April has been brought forward to Monday 9th March 2020. This was so the deadline could be met to forwarded on a report on Gabling Policy to the 7th April Council meeting for agreement. Having a Licensing Committee on 1st April would mean we could not meet the agenda deadline for that Council meeting.

 

As usual the Licensing Committee meeting will start at 2.30pm and be held in the Council Chamber.

Climate Emergency Motion - Response to Question at Full Council

At Full Council in December, Councillor S Neville asked the Leader what progress had been made following the adoption of the Climate Emergency Motion on 19 September 2019. This was in relation to the Council publishing an action plan on how they would achieve the target to become carbon neutral by 2030; and how the Council would monitor carbon emissions in the Epping Forest area to achieve the target.

 

Response:

Progress has been made in regard to appointment of Portfolio Holders for the Climate Change agenda, with Councillors Nigel Bedford and John Phillip being appointed at the Cabinet meeting on 6 January 2020 and the following actions have been progressed;

  • Funding has been secured for a Climate Change Officer post and a draft Job Profile has been drawn up. (NB. The job profile for this role has been developed in conjunction with the profile for the Council’s new Sustainable Travel Officer post and it is envisaged that these two posts will work closely together across the climate agenda). As agreed at Stronger Place Select Committee on 9 December, the draft Job Profile will be circulated to members to comment prior to going to advert.
  • An initial meeting has been held with the nominated Portfolio Holders and officers;
  • Work is underway to collate baseline data from across the Council;
  • A recruitment timeline has been agreed; and,
  • A strategic action plan has been drafted that will set out the timeline for delivering our objectives. This will include the development of a Climate Change Action Plan to achieve the Councils pledge to do everything within its power to make Epping Forest District Council carbon neutral by 2030

There are additionally several existing projects underway that are relevant to the work of the new post including the development of sustainability guidance to secure high standards in new development, the development of an air quality mitigation strategy for Epping Forest Special Area of Conservation and the development of a Green Infrastructure Strategy – a draft is due to be reported to Cabinet in March 2020 for wider consultation. 

It is envisaged that the Climate Change Officer will be in post by end of April.

Chairman of Council - Spoof Email

Members may have recently received email communication purporting to be from the Chairman of the Council, Councillor Richard Bassett.

 

The Chairman is aware that his personal Gmail account appears to have been hacked and members that may have received such communication are asked to disregard and delete these messages. Members should seek to be vigilant at all times with regard to the security of their own personal email accounts.

Chairman's Charity Event

It is with regret that Cllr Bassett has decided to cancel the ‘Prosecco, Pudding and Cheese Evening’ that was due to take place on Monday 27 January at the Cart Shed Restaurant, Epping.

 

Arrangements have been made for all cheques to be returned or direct payments refunded.

 

Cllr Bassett would like to thank everyone who had booked for their support and will try to rearrange another date later in the spring.
