PARKING FEES AND INCOME REVIEW 2019 pdf icon PDF 160 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Report ES18090

 

Parking charges had been reviewed borough-wide (in line with the agreed Parking Strategy) with on and off street parking fees recommended, including permit fees and changes to Bromley Zone A. Proposed changes to parking controls in Sundridge Park Village car park and Biggin Hill were also recommended. The proposed charges had been benchmarked against inflation since the previous increase in 2015.

 

Report ES18090 proposed:

 

·  a 10p increase per hour to all on and off-street pay and display tariffs with the minimum charge increasing from 40p to 50p per hour;

·  a 20p increase at premium locations with a higher demand where the charge is currently £1.50 or more;

·  that charges in the Lebanon Gardens Car Park, Biggin Hill are not included in the increase (following a recent petition), leaving the charge at 40p per hour (to be the cheapest in the borough). 

 

Details of proposed charges for all on and off street parking bays were appended to the report. For parking permits, prices are based on the cost of scheme management including administration and level of enforcement needed (related to hours of operation for permit bays). Prices for all permits have been frozen since at least 2015. Any restriction of four hours or less is currently charged at £40 for an annual permit; any restriction over four hours is charged at £80. The charging differential covers extra costs of enforcement by Civil Enforcement Officers.

 

Proposed charges for Resident, Business and Visitor Vouchers are:

 

Resident Permits

For Visitor Vouchers, a charge is proposed for residents in Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) restricted for four hours or less and another is proposed for CPZs restricted over four hours. As such, the cost of a pack of 15 visitor vouchers for residents in a CPZ of four hours or less would increase from £35.00 to £45.00 (increasing each voucher from £2.33 to £3.00) and for residents in a CPZ of more than four hours, the cost of a pack (of 15 visitor vouchers) would increase from £35.00 to £55.00 (increasing each voucher from £2.33 to £3.66). A second pricing tier would add fairness and equality for residents of all CPZs. Currently, a visitor in a lesser-enforced CPZ pays the same for a two-hour restriction as a visitor parking in a ten-hour restriction. CPZs that would be affected by the £55.00 visitor voucher cost are:

COMMERCIAL WASTE FEES AND CHARGES pdf icon PDF 92 KB

Minutes:

Report ES19020

 

Report ES19020 sought approval to 2019/20 charges proposed for Commercial Waste Collection Services (CWCS)and for waste delivered to the waste transfer stations.  

 

Waste Collection Authorities (WCA) have a duty under section 45(1)(b) of the Environment Protection Act 1990 to arrange for the collection of commercial waste where requested to do so and the Council provides a reasonably priced alternative to private sector CWCS operators. The service is reviewed and fees set annually to ensure it covers all reasonable costs on a full cost recovery basis. Pricing applied to the CWCS comprises:

 

·  an analysis of the annual contract inflationary increase in service charges applied (or in this case the new contract prices);

·  forecasting increases in cost of waste disposal associated with the activity:

·  annual application of Landfill Tax impacting on a proportion of the waste disposal charges; and

·  a benchmarking exercise of regional London boroughs to establish competiveness of the fees and charges applied.

 

Results of benchmarking for the 2019/20 Fees and Charges were appended to Report ES19020 (covering collection and disposal of commercial waste and container rental for domestic waste). Current service fees are 18.5% below average benchmarked prices of analysed regional authorities, demonstrating flexibility for service fees to increase in pricing the CWCS and hire charges.  

 

The review also included consideration of new costs as part of a full cost recovery model (e.g. recovering the new waste management service contract costs for administering the service) as well as the waste collection and waste disposal costs from the CWCS along with:

 

·  a recommended 30% reduction in the CWCS for container rental;

·  a 36% increase in collection and disposal charge; and

·  an annual Waste Transfer Note administration charge of £110.

 

For commercial and industrial waste delivered to the Council’s disposal waste transfer stations, current prices were recommended to continue at £185 per tonne including VAT (however, a service charge cannot be applied for direct delivery of charitable waste to the waste disposal operation).

 

Members supported the recommendations in Report ES19020.

 

RESOLVED that the Portfolio Holder be recommended to agree: 

 

(1)  the application of increases in service costs for the commercial waste collection service as outlined at paragraph 3.5 of Report ES19020, comprising a 30% decrease for the rental charge of commercial waste containers, a 36% fee increase for collection and disposal of waste and an adjusted fee rate for administration of the waste transfer note documentation at £110;

 

(2)  a decrease in the charge for rental of domestic bulk waste containers by 30% to reflect recovery of actual costs, as outlined at paragraph 3.6 of Report ES19020;

 

(3)  that the recommended price applied to commercial and industrial waste delivered to the Council’s disposal waste transfer stations remains at the 2018/19 prices of £185 per tonne; and

 

(4)  that authority be delegated to the Executive Director of Environment and Community Services, through consultation with the Portfolio Holder, to apply further changes to fees for chargeable waste services due to the delay caused through mobilisation of the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 50c

PROPOSED MAKING-UP OF CLARENCE ROAD, BICKLEY (PART) - SECOND RESOLUTION pdf icon PDF 70 KB

Minutes:

Report ES19015

 

Concerning the making up and adoption of Clarence Road, Bickley (between Page Heath Lane and Southlands Grove) as a highway maintainable at public expense, a Resolution of Approval was sought under the Private Street Works Code contained in the Highways Act 1980. The Portfolio Holder made a First Resolution in respect of Clarence Road under S.205(1) of the Highways Act 1980, following the Committee’s meeting on 10th October 2018.

 

The unmade section of the street crosses a railway line via a bridge approximately half way along its length. The bridge is maintained by Network Rail but considered weak with a maximum 13 tonnes limit. Rather than the bridge bear additional road construction weight and the weight of additional traffic, including any heavy vehicles (not observing the weight limit), an experimental road closure is proposed between the southern boundary of 62 Clarence Road and the driveway access to numbers 79-87 Clarence Road prohibiting all vehicles except pedestrians, pedal cycles and Network Rail service vehicles maintaining the bridge. The closure would be reviewed after six months with a view to making it a permanent closure. As such, works over the bridge could be carried out to reduced design standards with the completed scheme supporting Bromley’s ambition to promote quality cycle routes in the borough.

 

Although a Member highlighted the cost of the scheme, an explanation was provided of its purpose and background and Members agreed to support the recommendations.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(1)  the Portfolio Holder be recommended to make a Resolution of Approval in respect of a scheme for Clarence Road and approves the specification, plans, sections, estimate and provisional apportionment, to be prepared by the Executive Director of Environment and Community Services in due course; and

 

(2)  in future, where the Committee recommends the Portfolio Holder makes a First Resolution in respect of a scheme proposed under the provisions of the Private Street Works Code, it simultaneously recommends that the Portfolio Holder makes the further Resolution of Approval upon receiving the necessary specification, plans, sections, estimate and provisional apportionments prepared by the Executive Director of Environment and Community Services.

DRAFT BUDGET 2019/20 pdf icon PDF 128 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Report FSD19007

 

Members considered the Portfolio Holder’s Draft 2019/20 Budget incorporating future cost pressures and initial draft budget saving options as reported to Executive on 16th January 2019.

 

Executive asked each PDS Committee to consider the initial draft budget savings and cost pressures for their Portfolio. Views from each Committee would then be reported to the Executive when considering recommendations to Council on 2019/20 Council Tax levels.

 

Outstanding issues and areas of uncertainty continued to remain for the Draft 2019/20 Budget - any further updates would be included in the 2019/20 Council Tax report to Executive.

 

In discussion, brief reference was made to the new Environmental Services Contract from 1st April 2019 particularly in regard to the Waste Disposal (Lot 1) and Waste Collection (Lot 2). This primarily accounted for an increased level of budget next year as there will be increased costs in Year 1 of the new contract. However, from Year 2 costs will decrease going forward.

 

On Highways, a Member felt that reducing the road maintenance budget would not be sensible given the condition of a number of roads in the borough. The Portfolio Holder indicated that a £1.17m lump sum had recently been provided from the Government’s announcement on local roads funding. This would support road maintenance in the borough and it could be expected that this investment together with Bromley’s own recent investment in highways would result in newer roads requiring less maintenance over the next few years. As such, a temporary road maintenance budget reduction should be able to be accommodated. Monitoring could also be undertaken by the Committee. However, the Member considered, taking account of the condition of the borough’s roads, that should £177k be removed from the budget, there would be increased costs longer-term.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(1)  the update on the financial forecast for 2019/20 to 2022/23 be noted;

 

(2)  the initial draft 2019/20 budget be noted as a basis for setting the 2019/20 budget; and

 

(3)  the Committee’s comments on the initial draft 2019/20 budget be provided for the Executive to consider at their meeting on 13th February 2019.

LIP3 CONSULTATION REPORT pdf icon PDF 81 KB

Minutes:

Report ES19018

 

Since previously considering L B Bromley’s Draft Local Implementation Plan (LIP) 3 on 10th October 2018, Members were updated on subsequent consultation results. In so doing, Members were asked to consider how the results might inform future policy and scheme development and to consider whether any further changes could be made to the LIP.

The consultation ran from 5th November 2018 to 13th January 2019 including a webpage dedicated to the draft LIP3 (https://www.bromley.gov.uk/localimplementationplan). Online responses were possible via a survey with more detailed comments emailed or posted.  A total of 526 bodies were also directly consulted, including statutory consultees. Additionally, a press release published via the Council’s Facebook and Twitter accounts was reported in the News Shopper, Bromley Times, and Bromley Borough News. Information on the consultation was further included in the Bromley Winter Newsletter emailed to some 50,000 residents (who had provided email addresses for this purpose). 

Following publication of Report ES19018, the consultation results were summarised for Members and Public (circulated to Members in advance of the meeting and tabled). This consultation document can also be seen via the following link to papers for the meeting (https://cds.bromley.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=127&MId=6464&Ver=4). A draft LIP3 post consultation was also tabled as was a summary of changes to the draft LIP3 post consultation. Both documents can be seen via the link above. Additionally, comments on the item from Cllr Kieran Terry (unable to be at the meeting) were tabled and again these can be seen via the above link. 

TfL had submitted a number of comments which it would like addressed or clarified prior to submission of the finalised LIP for approval in March 2019. The comments were generally minor without changing the broad approach of the draft LIP. No major changes are therefore required to the LIP although a number of small changes were made in response to stakeholder comments clarifying the Borough’s position/proposals or adding more detail to a proposal. It was highlighted that reference to a response from the Friends of Orpington Priory and Gardens was inadvertently missing from material tabled.

(Democratic Services Note: It was highlighted post-meeting that the consultation response from Ashfield Lane Road Safety Group (ALRSG) had also been omitted and has since been added to the consultation report).

 

A number of stakeholders provided detailed comments on particular locations in the Borough and these would be considered further as annual delivery programmes are developed during LIP3. 

 

Certain funding details were also provided in relation to the 2019/20 LIP allocation.

 

A Member commented that it was good to see that the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) and Bromley Cyclists were positive on the draft LIP3.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(1)  the LIP3 consultation results be noted; and

(2)  the final LIP allocation for 2019/20 be noted.

PARKING SERVICES - CONTRACTOR PERFORMANCE REVIEW, APCOA PARKING, YEAR 2 pdf icon PDF 152 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Report ES18089

 

Members considered performance of the Parking Services Contractor APCOA (enforcement of parking restrictions, maintenance of Council car parks, maintenance of pay and display machines, and back office functions). 

 

Although APCOA had a number of challenges in year one of the contract, the second year has seen an improvement in service areas and performance is satisfactory.

 

On enforcement, Report ES18089 provided figures on PCNs issued annually from 1st April 2013 to 31st March 2018 i.e. those issued by Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) and those issued as a result of CCTV cameras for bus Lanes and those capturing offences on school zigzag restrictions. Figures on PCNs predicted for 2018 /19 were also provided. Although fewer CEO issued PCNs are predicted, enforcement will no longer take place on shared use bays in seven roads from 18:30 – 20:00 during a review of Bromley Town Centre - the signage causing confusion for drivers. Compliance, rather than poor deployment, might have also increased and this is being investigated; however, enforcement requests had increased 132% in the previous three years with only 29% of requests this year resulting in a PCN. Such enforcement visits can take CEOs away from busier areas (e.g. town centres and car parks) and work is ongoing to maintain enforcement in these areas. The existing KPI on responding to enforcement requests within a set time (depending on time of day) is being considered in favour of a more targeted approach and website information on enforcement requests will be reviewed.

 

APCOA are also reviewing beat sheets (with Council assistance) to ensure adequate enforcement around the borough and intelligence led deployment. Since October 2018, APCOAhave additionally trialled a vehicle with ANPR camera technology in permit zones. Updated twice daily with permit information, the technology detects a vehicle without a valid permit and a CEO issues a PCN for a contravention. Data indicates a successful use of the vehicle enabling CPZs to be covered more efficiently with CEOs reallocated to busier parts of the borough. Investment in further ANPR vehicles will be considered upon a full analysis of the trial.

 

As a further initiative, virtual briefings in parts of the borough will enable CEOs to head directly to their beat rather than attend APCOA’s main office each morning. This is being considered to decrease CEO travel time and enable more enforcement.

 

To reduce staff turnover, ACPOA are reviewing the level of CEO remuneration and a new Contract Manager will start in February 2019. A joint compliance review will also start, with monthly reports analysing roads needing visits to ensure efficient enforcement borough-wide. Of defaults applied so far this year, 73.75% concern enforcement.

 

Concerning Council-run car parks, Parking Services are investigating reduced usage and will compare use to those of non-Council car parks in the area. An APCOA proposal to improve the Civic Centre Car Park is also being considered. Of defaults applied so far this year, 3.77% have related to car park maintenance, Pay and Display machine  ...  view the full minutes text for item 53.

FOOD WASTE RECYCLING CAMPAIGN - UPDATE pdf icon PDF 83 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Report ES19010

 

Members received an update on the food waste recycling campaign.

 

Although L B Bromley achieved its Environment Portfolio Plan ambition to recycle 50% of household waste in 2017/18 (with the borough ranked second highest in London for household recycling), its recycling rate has plateaued in recent years and the amount of waste produced per household has risen.

The food waste recycling scheme has also seen collected food waste decrease by 19% over the previous five years.

 

Sending food waste for disposal rather than composting costs £69 per tonne more under the current contract (at 2018/19 prices). On average, over the previous four years, the reduction in food waste recycled (510 tonnes) generates an additional £35k disposal cost per year. The 2016 Waste Composition Analysis indicated that 28% of non-recyclable refuse comprises food waste.

 

To build on the Food for Thought Campaign, a targeted engagement exercise was commissioned to motivate and re-energise residents to recycle more food. Following a successful funding bid to Resource London, L B Bromley was awarded £14.5k to develop campaign materials for the exercise.

 

Food waste tonnage and non-recyclable refuse analysed over a two week period in April 2018 identified areas with the lowest amount of food waste collections and the highest amount of non-recyclable refuse. Each lowest performing collection round was reviewed against housing types and local factors to ensure that no external factors might limit use of the scheme. The 21 collection rounds identified as lowest performing - covering 16 wards and 23,000 households - were selected for targeted engagement activity and details were tabled for Members as an appendix to Report ES19010.

 

A door step campaign of the 23,000 households was undertaken in October and November 2018 with communication materials distributed as well as a free roll of 50 food waste liners to 5,000 households in the four lowest performing food waste collection rounds. Additional borough-wide communication materials included:

 

·  Press release

·  Article in Environment Matters

·  Social media coverage

·  JC Decaux banners in Bromley High Street

·  Vehicle panels (for display on recycling vehicles from mid-February) 

 

All 23,000 households received campaign materials and 41% received face-to-face engagement on the food waste service.

 

Indicative results show that participation in the scheme increased by 2.5% following the campaign. The amount of food waste collected in December 2018 was 5% higher compared to the amount collected in December 2017. Further data analysis will look to see whether the increase can be fully attributed to the campaign and whether it will be sustainable over time. Building on the campaign, officers are reviewing how to continue working with residents to increase recycling and decrease waste management costs e.g. use the analysis of recycling and waste tonnages across different areas to generate a campaign competition between different parts of the borough.

 

For flats, recycling provision has a focus on dry recycling materials (with neighbourhoods working with Housing Associations) whereas the food waste campaign has more focus on kerbside collections. Blocks of flatted properties can have a compressed bin storage area  ...  view the full minutes text for item 54.

Report ES19005

 

From the Contracts Register presented to Contracts Sub-Committee on

11th December 2018, Members received an extract for the Environment and

Community Services (ECS) Portfolio. A further copy provided under Part 2

proceedings included commentary for each contract.

 

Key information for ECS was also provided for the preceding two months.

 

The following contracts had been flagged for attention due to tight tender timescales (rather than any performance issues delivering the contract):

Openview Security Solutions

317,971

31/05/2019

Depots Security

284,927

31/03/2019

Concerning the Openview contract, authority is being sought via a Gateway Report to extend the License/maintenance contract, one year at a time, for up to five years. Although Depots Security was to be included in the recently awarded bundle of Environment Services contracts, alternative delivery options are being examined with the possibility of inclusion by change-control notice in the wider LBB Total Facilities Management contract with Amey. Should this approach not be suitable, the current framework arrangement operated by the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) may be utilised for an extension period and/or arrangements for any competition to follow in autumn 2019. A budget of £158k is provided for the depot security contract with £136k recovered from depot occupants. The Council is therefore left with a net cost of £22k.

 

RESOLVED that the £50k+ Contracts Register (which also forms part of the Council’s commitment to data transparency) appended to Report ES19005 be noted.

FORWARD WORK PROGRAMME & MATTERS ARISING pdf icon PDF 84 KB

Minutes:

Report ES19014

 

Members considered the Committee’s remaining 2018/19 Work Programme.

 

In considering APCOA’s performance on parking services earlier in the meeting, the following items were requested for the Work Programme:

 

·  an update on the full results of the trial use of an APNR vehicle (for the Committee’s 9th April meeting); and

 

·  consideration of APCOA’s performance in a further six months to ensure continuation of progress;  

 

The Vice-Chairman suggested that the Air Quality Action Plan item scheduled for the Committee’s 9th April meeting also be taken to the Health and Wellbeing Board.

 

A Member suggested that Committee Members visit a successful waste and recycling centre operated by another authority. Although the L B Bexley site at Foots Cray, Sidcup was suggested, the Assistant Director of Environment advocated particularly forward thinking and radical options for future site development. As such he referred to the Rainham MURF facility and the Earlswood Community Recycling Centre, Redhill as possible viewing examples. Through Surrey County Council’s waste and recycling contract, reuse shops (Revive reuse shops) sold pre-owned items for the home and garden to reduce waste and support local charities.

 

In terms of site layout at the Waldo Road and Churchfields Road reuse and recycling centres, both sites were constrained to a point and it is a consideration about how to have the sites for the future. The Assistant Director offered to show Committee Members something of best practice and what future provision could be like. Accordingly, suggestions (on visits) would be provided to the Committee. 

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(1)  the latest 2018/19 Forward Work Programme (appended to Report ES19014) be agreed subject to -

 

·  an update being provided at the 9th April meeting on the full results of the trial use of an APNR vehicle

 

·  consideration of APCOA’s performance being scheduled for a further six months to ensure continuation of progress

 

·  provision being made for a future visit by Members to a progressive waste and recycling facility (suggestions for such a visit being made by the Assistant Director of Environment); and 

 

(2)  progress concerning Committee requests (appended to Report ES19014) be noted.
