The Portfolio Holder for Public Protection and Enforcement advised Members that she had recently attended the Safer Neighbourhood Board Crime Summit and the meeting of the Safer Bromley Partnership Board. She had also recently chaired a meeting of the Bromley Mentoring Initiative which was designed to help young people who needed help, advice and guidance. There had been issues with ‘boy racers’ in various wards, particularly in Chelsfield and Biggin Hill. The Council was working closely with the police on this matter. The Portfolio Holder was due to have a meeting soon with Chief Superintendent David Stringer and would raise the issue with him at that time.
With respect to the performance overview report, the Chairman referred to issues that had been flagged as red; he commented that the matters concerning the ‘Challenge 25’ policy were self-explanatory and would disappear soon. The rest of the issues that had been flagged red were connected with the Food Safety Plan and this would be a looked at later in the meeting as it was an item on the agenda.
RESOLVED that the Portfolio Holder Update and the PP&E Performance Overview report be noted.
