Nursery worker accommodation task group update

The Nursery Worker Accommodation Task Group (NWATG) continues to meet every 2 months, or sooner if required, the purpose is to review progress of the project, the local plan as it related to the nursery worker accommodation and to agree the next steps.

 

The overall strategy is to resolve the outstanding planning issues, the drainage/water supply concerns and remove any immediate environmental health risksassociated with the accommodation provided for nursery workers.  Once this has been completed, in the case of caravans, a site licence application for a residential caravan site will need to be in place and for permanent structures full compliance with Housing lawswill be sort.

 

To this end, in September of last year we commenced fresh inspections of all sites.  Wherever possible in order to co-ordinate our actions and ensure that the site owners/managers are fully aware of their responsibilities, these inspections are carried out jointly by officers from the Private Sector Housing Team, Planning Enforcement and the Engineering, Water and Drainage Team.

 

Since September of last year:

 

·       33 out of a total 73 sites initially identified have been inspected.

·       A number (five) of new sites have been identified and will form part of the inspection programme.

·       All sites are expected to have been inspected by the end of September 2018 and all significant hazards posing an imminent risk should have been resolved.

·       The Engineering, Water and Drainage Team are progressing a number of cases for enforcement action for breaches of regulations. One site is pending prosecution and three further sites have been served notices in respect of water supply and one site served with an enforcement notice in respect of defective drainage (a further 10 sites are being considered for enforcement or requiring further investigation).

·       Planning applications have been made in respect of 3 sites – two have received approval and the second is subject to member decision following initial officer refusal. A further 3 applications are expected to be forthcoming within the next few months and site owners at another 6 sites have been notified of the requirement to submit planning applications or apply for a certificate lawful development.

·       Following confirmation from Water team that the site is compliant in terms of drinking water and foul drainagethe first caravan site licence is likely to be processed shortly.

Epping Forest District Community Safety Hub

Members are asked to note that Police officers funded by Epping Forest District Council are working collaboratively alongside the council’s Community Safety Team as an integrated Community Safety Hub. A sergeant and two constables work from the Civic Offices using a marked police vehicle. Officers activities are excluded from district policing demands unless there is an urgent need such as imminent threat to life or major incident.

 

The officers work activities are directed by tasking requests and must relate to priorities of the Police and Crime Plan or the Community Safety Partnership plan priorities for the district. To manage demand these will be strictly adhered to and tasking will be managed through Community Safety. There should not be any direct approach to the officers from members. Requests for consideration of tasked activity should be made via Community Safety generic email address: Safercommunities@eppingforestdc.gov.uk.members

 

The tasking priorities are set out below and consideration will not be given to any requests falling outside of them.
