85. MATTERS ARISING FROM THE MINUTES ON 20TH SEPTEMBER AND 27TH SEPTEMBER 2006.

 

(a) Item 23 (c) 2000/2001 - Greenside and Beckfields Shopping Centres, Ingleby Barwick.

 

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter from Brown’s Estate Agents informing that the matters raised by the Parish Council have been discussed at their recent Directors Meeting.  With regard to the bollard it would appear that this has been replaced on a number of occasions, but is being damaged by vehicles delivering to the Supermarket.

It has been replaced in the past to prevent vehicles driving onto the block paving.

They have instructed contractors to replace this bollard and hopefully vehicles delivering to the Supermarket will not damage it yet again.

In relation to the bins, they have provided these on a number of occasions, and they are either being vandalised or removed by youths who congregate in the area.  Whilst they are doing everything in order to keep the place tidy, at times this is beyond their control, due to the youths gathering.

It is hoped that the CCTV will overcome this problem, and the area can settle down to normality.  

 

The Clerk informed that she has recently spoken with the Manager of the Teal Arms, who is progressing the possibility of a ‘No Ball Games’ sign being erected in the main paved shopping area.

 

No response has still been received from the Brewery who is responsible for the maintenance at the Beckfields Shopping area.

 

It was noted that the shrubs to the rear of the building previously used as Beckfields Medical Centre have now been cut back and tidied up.  The work has been carried out by S.B.C. under the instruction of the owner.

 

(b) Item 212 2005/2006 Cleveland Police, Neighbourhood Policing Consultation Meetings.

 

It was noted that the Neighbourhood Policing consultation meeting scheduled to take place on 5th October 2006 had been replaced by the public consultation meeting held at the Swallow Hotel, High Street Stockton, 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm.

At the meeting there was an opportunity to meet and speak with the Chief Constable, Mr Sean Price, the District Commander, Superintendent Dave Brunskill and the Chairman of the Police Authority, Councillor Dave Mcluckie.

 

The meeting was attended by Parish Councillor W. Feldon.

 

Chairman…………………………………..

                                                                                                                        4 of 17

 

Councillor Feldon informed that the meeting was well attended.  Two of the main items which he raised were in connection with crime figures. 

 

One being that as Ingleby Barwick has a low reported crime rate does this mean that there is a possibility that Police cover would be reduced.  He was assured at the meeting that this would not happen.

 

Secondly, how accurate are the crime figures provided?

 

Councillor Feldon outlined two incidents which had caused him concern as to the procedures for recording crime.

 

It was noted that the lack of Youth facilities in Ingleby Barwick was also raised.

 

Councillor Feldon informed that he had raised the matter of the previously proposed Police mergers and noted that thanks to Cleveland Police Committee supported by Ingleby Barwick Parish Council the mergers had been disbanded.

 

(c) Item 30 2006/2007 Parish Council Seat Adjacent to Stonechat Close, Ingleby Barwick.

 

The Clerk informed that she is still awaiting a date from S.B.C. for removal of the seat.

Suggestions were requested for a new location for the seat.

Lowfields Avenue, adjacent to the crash barriers was raised again as a possible site.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk progress the matter.

 

(d) Item 57 2006/2007 Barwick Way, Roundabout and Road Realignment Scheme

 

The Clerk informed that she had contacted the officer at S.B.C. who had overseen the contract to arrange a site meeting.

A number of issues were raised at the meeting to be dealt with by the Contractor.

(f) Item 69 2006/2007 Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, Sponsorship And/Or Reservation of the Mayor’s Annual Charity Dinner 2006 – Section 137 Payments.

 

The Clerk informed that she has now received written notification from NALC that the Parish Council is able to sponsor the charity event.  It is noted that the Parish Council may incur expenditure under section 137(3)(b) of the Local Government Act 1972.  Section 137(3)(b) provides that a parish council may incur expenditure on contributions to the funds of any non profit making body which provides a public service whether to the public at large or to any section of it in the United Kingdom.  In their view a local authority is a body which provides a public service.  It is advisable for the Parish Council to ensure that the donation is specifically ring-fenced for the fund raising event relating to the two local charities so that it is not used for any other purpose.  

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council agrees to sponsor the event to the sum of £50.00, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.

 

(g) Item 73(f) 2006/2007 Section 137 Payments – Sponsorship of two Ingleby Barwick Residents entering the New York Marathon to help raise funds for a children’s charity.

 

The Clerk reported receipt of advice from NALC stating that the Parish Council may incur expenditure under section 137(3)(a) of the Local Government Act 1972 by making a contribution directly to the charity concerned in relation to the two marathon runners.  Section 137(3)(a) of the 1972 Act provides that a parish council may contribute towards the funds of any charitable body in furtherance of its work in the United Kingdom.

The Charity concerned is ‘Get Kids Going’ which provides disabled children and young adults with specially built wheelchairs so they can get involved in sport.

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council agrees to make a donation to the children’s charity ‘Get Kids Going’ to the sum of £50.00, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.

86. EASTERN AREA TRANSPORT STRATEGY – UPDATE FROM MEETING ON 9TH OCTOBER 2006.

 

The Clerk reported receipt of correspondence from S.B.C. noting that following the Area Transport Strategy meeting on 9th October and the draft cabinet member report sent by S.B.C. on 6th October it is requested that the Parish Council confirm their support for the Puffin crossing on Ingleby Way.

 

The related information was circulated to Members at the meeting for their observation.

 

The draft report presents the findings of an investigation of a controlled pedestrian crossing in the vicinity of the existing school crossing patrol site on Ingleby Way west of Beckfields Roundabout.  It also seeks to confirm approval to implement the scheme in the current financial year.

 

The second scheme under consideration at the meeting on 9th October 2006 was a possible build out on Blair Avenue, Ingleby Barwick.  A report was considered which presented the results of an experimental scheme carried out to determine the effectiveness and suitability of a possible build-out.

Given the lack of a suitable location in terms of available visibility distances on this length of Blair Avenue, the lack of a reduction in traffic speeds near the schools, and negative public feedback, it was recommended that the scheme not be pursued.

 

It was noted however that provision of a school zone featuring speed indication devices will be implemented on Blair Avenue near Myton Park School Base this financial year.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information provided.

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council supports the implementation of a Puffin crossing on Ingleby Way, the Clerk to inform S.B.C. accordingly.

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter from S.B.C. noting that in May/June 2006, the Council carried out a consultation exercise into issues and options for the Local Development Framework Core Strategy Development Plan Document.  Nearly 70 responses were received in relation to this, and comments can be viewed on the Council’s website at www.stockton.gov.uk.

As part of the consultation, three options were put forward in relation to where most of the Borough’s growth and development should take place over the next 10-15 years.  This includes all types of development – housing, economic development, services and facilities.  The views and comments received have been considered, and have resulted in some rewording and amendments to the original options proposed.  Additionally, four alternative options are put forward for consideration. The Council is now seeking views on these, and is re-consulting on all 7 options.  They would like to know which, in the Parish Council’s view, would best meet the Borough’s development needs over the next 10-15 years.  The deadline for submitting comments is Friday 24th November 2006.

 

The Clerk stated that she has forward a copy of the information received to Parish Council Members for their observation.

 

RESOLVED that the matter be discussed at the next Parish Council meeting scheduled to take place on Wednesday 15th November 2006.

 

89. ENVIRONMENT AGENCY – THE TEES CATCHMENT ABSTRACTION MANAGEMENT STRATEGY.

 

The Clerk reported receipt of a copy of the Tees Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy leaflet from the Environment Agency.  They are reviewing how the water resources of the River Tees are managed.  The leaflet outlines how this will be achieved and describes how to take part in the consultation process.

 

Chairman…………………………………..

                                                                                                                        8 of 17

The Parish Council is invited to contribute to the consultation and the Environment Agency would welcome any comments or suggestions that the Parish Council would like them to take into account during the early development of the strategy.  At this stage they are particularly interested to hear about the issues that are important to the Parish Council in relation to management of water sources on the River Tees.  This will help them prepare the Consultation Document for the strategy due for publication Spring 2007.

 

General comments were raised on the mixing of bore water with fresh water to aid with water shortages.  However, it was noted that this causes hardening of the water which in turn causes pipes to fur up etc.

 

RESOLVED that the Parish Council submits a general comment to raise the issue of mixing water especially without prior information to customers.  

 

90. NORTH YORKSHIRE MINERALS AND WASTE DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK CORE STRATEGIC SPATIAL OPTIONS AND SITE ALLOCATIONS POLICIES DOCUMENT PUBLIC CONSULTATION EXERCISE.

 

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter and CD informing that the Minerals and Waste Planning team is beginning a simultaneous consultation exercise on two documents that will form part of the North Yorkshire Minerals and Waste Development Framework. 

The Core Strategy Strategic Spatial Options document sets out the overall strategic approach to be adopted for minerals and waste planning within the county.  This document is to be read alongside the North Yorkshire Minerals and Waste Development Framework Issues and Options Paper, published by North Yorkshire County Council in July 2005.  This current paper seeks views on the different ways that the Minerals and Waste Development Framework might deal with overall planning approaches to both minerals and waste development in North Yorkshire (excluding the National Parks).

The Site Allocations and Policies document is to provide a degree of certainty to local residents, the minerals and waste industry, and other interested parties, about where future minerals and waste development is likely to take place.  A number of initial consultation exercises were carried out in August 2005 and March 2006.  In those exercises, the County Council invited the minerals and waste industry, landowners and other interested parties to submit details of sites or areas that may be appropriate for future mineral extraction or waste management.  The sites submitted as a result of these consultation exercises are set out in this document, including a preliminary site appraisal for each of the sites submitted.  It is important to note that the sites identified in this consultation document have been proposed by the minerals and waste industry, landowners and other prospective developers.  They have been included for consultation purposes only at this stage and have not been endorsed by North Yorkshire County Council.

91. INGLEBY BARWICK COMMUNITY HALL – EXTENSION.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk arrange a meeting to take place end November/early December 2006, with the Funding and Strategy Officer at S.B.C. to discuss external funding i.e. the Big Lottery Fund etc.  Representatives of both the Parish Council and Community Hall Management Committee be invited to attend the meeting.

 

The Clerk informed that she had contacted Allianz Cornhill regarding the Officials indemnity section of the Parish Council’s policy as requested.

They have confirmed that providing the three Councillors who represent the Parish Council on the Community Hall Management Committee are working at the request of the Council and under the Council’s control then the Officials Indemnity section will cover the Council.

However if they were three persons on the committee but it was just a coincidence that they happened to be Councillors there would be no cover.

 

It was noted however that following the recent telephone conversation they are to understand that the Parish Council are Custodian Trustees of the Community Hall and the trust deed states that there must be Council representation on the Hall Committee.

As advised on the telephone the fact that the Parish Council are Custodian Trustees means that they cannot insure the hall building as they have no insurable interest in the property.  This must be insured by the Management Committee.  They await the Parish Council’s further confirmation of as and when the Hall insurance transfer has taken place.

 

The Clerk advised that she has raised this matter with the Treasurer of the Management Committee and both parties are liaising with the insurance company to resolve the matter.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk be delegated the responsibility in liaison with the Vice-Chairman to initiate any alterations required to be made by the Parish Council in respect of the policy, on the advice of the insurance company.

RESOLVED that the Clerk submit the following comments to S.B.C. in respect of the proposal:

 

Facilities for a wider age range are required in Ingleby Barwick, particularly for the youths.

There are very limited youth facilities currently provided within the estate and there is a desperate need for a youth club/café.

If this Children’s Centre is required, given that there are already many of the proposed facilities available in Ingleby Barwick at this time, the Parish Council would suggest that it also incorporates provision of a youth facility.

It is suggested therefore that at this early stage the possibility of a bigger centre being provided be investigated, to accommodate a multi-use building taking into account storage requirements etc.
