Report from Councillor Barry

I have attended a Resources and Services Scrutiny Committee meeting on 29th July where I asked questions about the budget report with particular reference to spending on disabled access improvements, recycling costs, leisure centre overspend and the Lido budget settlement.

Councillors are finding it difficult to meet with officers due to holiday commitments but we have a series of questions to put in respect of waste collection, recycling provision and shelters on the Western Promenade, plus general beach management issues that arise every summer.

Report from Councillor Barry, Chapman and Steady

All 3 Tendring District Councillors attended the full Council Meeting on 6th August. The main items were:-

Declaration of a climate emergency – Aim is to make activities of TDC carbon neutral by 2030 all 3 voted in favour

Adoption of section 1 of the Local Plan Examination – all 3 voted in favour. Local Plan needed to control speculative developments.

Councillor Barry asked Cllr Talbot Environment Portfolio Holder a question about the implementation of the waste and recycling service strategy. He was not at all satisfied with the answer received from the portfolio holder and this is being followed up by the opposition group as a whole requesting he makes a full statement on the issue. Councillor Steady also asked Councillor Talbot if he thought that his portfolio was being managed efficiently and effectivity. The answer given was somewhat obscure.

Report from Councillor Steady

Following a request from TDC Officer, Kristy Childs, as to what developments on the Western Promenade could be subject to funding from S106, it was suggested that this would go towards renewal of the Skate Park.
