Part B - Essential Information

New Process for raising IT issues

 

1.    Members should raise IT issues by contacting Member Contact via email at MemberContact@eppingforestdc.gov.uk.  Minimum information required; a full detailed explanation of the symptoms, preference for contact details, an appropriate time for IT to contact, and any screenshots of the issues experienced (if appropriate).

2.    Member Contact will raise the incident on behalf of the member with the ICT service desk by telephoning the ICT service desk on internal extension 4888 or external 01992564888.

3.    The Service Desk member will create an incident on behalf of the Member, with the full details. Please note that there may-be occasions when further information is required in order for the service desk to progress the ticket, In this instance the service desk will advise and support Member Contact and postpone the progress of the ticket until the appropriate information is provided.

4.    IT will then accept ownership of the issue and create a ticket.  During the lifecycle of the ticket there maybe be occasions where further information and collaboration is needed with the members directly, ICT will contact the member directly at the stipulated time on the appropriate number provided in the ticket.  Updates on the Tickets will be emailed directly to the member reporting the issue.

5.    In the event that IT have attempted to reach the member on 2 separate occasions and are unable to make contact the ticket will be resolved and escalated to MemberContact@eppingforestdc.gov.uk.  Member Contact or the Member will then have 10 days to reach out to the service desk in order to re-open the ticket and resolve the issue.

6.    Members are still able to raise tickets directly via the service desk by telephoning the ICT service desk on internal extension 4888 or external 01992564888.

7.    Any IT issues being reported to Democratic Services will be emailed to MemberContact@eppingforestdc.gov.uk

TREE PROSECUTION 10 REDWOOD HOUSE ORCHARD END ONGAR ESSEX

On 27th April 2021 2021 in Chelmsford Magistrates Court Mr George Alder of 10 Redwood House Orchard End Ongar Essex pleaded guilty to causing or permitting the lopping of a Redwood tree and the felling of a Pine tree at his property without the authorisation of Epping Forest District and which were protected by a Tree Preservation Order made in 2008

 

FACTS

On 10th June 2020 the Council’s Tree and Landscape officer was notified that work had been carried out to trees in the garden of Redwood House Orchard End Ongar Essex. The trees were protected by a Tree Preservation Order and no consent had been given for the work carried out.

 

The Council’s investigation also revealed that a Redwood tree in the garden had been severely lopped and a Pine tree had been felled without consent

 

Having pleaded guilty at the first available opportunity Mr Alder was fined

·         £1,000 in respect of the Redwood tree

·         £4,000 for the Pine tree

·         and ordered to pay the Council’s prosecution costs of £974.75 and a victim surcharge of £190.

 

The Magistrates stated that they believed the work had been an intentional and deliberate act. They had taken into account the fact that Mr Alder had been required to plant a replacement Pine tree at a stated cost of £1,200.
