Committee considered their work programme for 2021/22.
It was noted that this Committee now held all the ‘housing elements’ for review work, where previously it had been split with the former Healthy, Safe, Clean & Green Communities and Growth Scrutiny Committees. However, this Committee now had the waste collection element of Streetscene and the Head of Streetscene was currently looking at new legislation in relation to waste collection.
In relation to the Adapted Accommodation briefing presented earlier in the meeting, Members would need to agree the scope of the review within their Informal session. Further detail could then be considered at the September meeting.
It was noted that the Council’s Joint Homelessness Strategy, with North East Derbyshire District and Chesterfield Borough Councils, was currently under review. This would be presented by the Head of Housing Management & Enforcement to the September meeting.
Due to the change to Committee Terms of Reference following Council AGM, Audit and Corporate Overview Scrutiny Committee (ACOSC) would be reviewing the Council’s in-house procurement service and the Scrutiny & Elections Officer would speak to the Chair of ACOSC with regard to a Member from this Committee engaging in the discussion regarding procurement.
The formal meeting concluded at 1055 hours and Members then met as a working party to continue their review work. The working party concluded at 1115 hours.
