The Assistant Director for Public Protection and Enforcement referenced the risk associated with the Out of Hours Noise Service. This was normally staffed on a voluntary basis, but the uptake of volunteers had been limited and so this was still an area of risk. More work was required to confirm arrangements for the future operation of the service, particularly if no external funding was forthcoming. An update report would be presented at the January PP&E PDSmeeting. The risk associated with the cost of the Coroner’s Service was discussed. The Service was requesting a greater financial contribution from Bromley. The reason for the increased costs had been attributed to ‘high risk post mortems’. The matter was being discussed by the four authorities in the consortium.
RESOLVED that the update on the PP&E Risk Register be noted.
