12/11/2020 - EASTWOOD VEHICLE NUISANCE PUBLIC SPACES PROTECTION ORDER ref: 610    For Determination

Decision Maker: Community Safety Committee

Made at meeting: 12/11/2020 - Community Safety Committee

Decision published: 09/04/2021

Effective from: 12/11/2020

Decision:

The Committee discussed the enforcement of the PSPO, with particular reference to measuring how successful an order had been.  It was noted that a lack of enforcement could show that the order had discouraged anti-social behaviour and was of benefit to the local community by preventing the offending conduct.  There was concern that problems might be moved to other areas and it was noted that should this happen powers of dispersal or further PSPOs could be used. 

 

RESOLVED that in accordance with the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, the making of the Eastwood Vehicle Nuisance PSPO, as detailed in appendix 1, be approved.

13/01/2021 - HOUSES IN MULTIPLE OCCUPATION IN BEESTON ref: 682    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Jobs and Economy Committee

Made at meeting: 13/01/2021 - Jobs and Economy Committee

Decision published: 26/03/2021

Effective from: 13/01/2021

Decision:

The Committee had been asked to considered when the Article 4 Direction concerning Housing in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) in Beeston should come into force.  It was noted that once the Committee had made a decision regarding the implementation date of the Direction, a six week consultation would need to take place and an extraordinary meeting of the Committee would take place to consider responses. 

 

During the debate it was stated that if twelve months had not passed between the confirmation of the Order and the Direction coming into force, then the Council could be liable for substantial amounts of compensation.  There was concern, however, that a number of developments would take place during the twelve month waiting period and that this would irrecoverably change the character of the areas where HMOs were becoming more commonplace.  

 

It was proposed by Councillor P Lally and seconded by Councillor D A Elliott that the Direction should come into force nine months from the confirmation of the Order and that the Council should proceed to the consultation stage as outlined in appendix 1.

 

A counter proposal was made by Councillor R I Jackson and seconded by Councillor D D Pringle that the Direction should come into force twelve months from the confirmation of the Order and that the Council should proceed to the consultation stage as outlined in appendix 1.  On being put to the meeting, the motion was passed.

 

RESOLVED that the Direction should come into force twelve months from confirmation of the Order and that the Council should proceed to the consultation stage as outlined in appendix 1.

The Committee discussed the Stapleford Town Investment Plan, and voiced concern that it did not adequately deal with the issues of job creation, resilience or vision.  It was noted that there was much to be commended about the plan, in particular the level of detail about employment in the Stapleford area.  There was also discussion about the uncertainty about HS2. 

 

Debate progressed, and it was noted that the people of Stapleford had been key in driving the plan in the direction of cycling, town centre improvement and an enhanced recreational offer.  It was stated that skills needed investment to attract highly skilled jobs to the area.  There followed a discussion about future engagement and consultation.  It was considered that some changes could be made to make the document more likely in succeeding to get funding from the Towns Deal Fund. 

 

RESOLVED that the Stapleford Town Investment Plan be APPROVED.
