The report therefore sought approval in principle from Executive for the Council to use its Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) powers to acquire the land needed should acquisition by private treaty fail together with arrangements for implementation of associated side roads orders and traffic regulation orders.

 

He introduced the report that gave details of the scheme, set out risks and options and how objections were proposed to be dealt with.

 

The Regeneration, Planning and Transport Portfolio Holder thanked officers for their work on the schemes.  He emphasised that the proposals would deliver junction upgrades to address congestion on the outer ring road that had been needed for a considerable length of time.  He added that officers would continue to engage with land owners regarding the acquisition of land.

 

The Strategic Director explained that the proposals included dedicated cycle facilities and pedestrian crossing facilities.  He added that officers were working with the Combined Authority and bus company to rationalise the number of bus shelters to realise the full benefit of the provision of additional traffic lanes.  He noted that new LED lighting would improve visibility.  The junction improvements would reduce the number of vehicles idling at junctions that would improve air quality. It was noted that a high level of assessments of air quality and a detailed evidence base were required by the Combined Authority.  High level monitoring of the impact of the scheme would be undertaken. 

 

The Portfolio Holder anticipated that improved bus routes would encourage more use of buses.

The focus of the Monitoring Visit was on the Front Door looking at contacts and referrals, child protection enquiries, step-up from and step-down to early help and no further action/sign-posting.

 

The findings were available from 29th March 2019.  This was the only Monitoring Visit letter that will not be published by Ofsted.

 

The report of the Interim Strategic Director (Document “BH”) provided a summary of the findings.  Appendix 1 to Document “BH” (Ofsted Report of Monitoring Visit – 6th and 7th March 2019) was Not For Publication as it contained confidential information as defined by section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 – Government restriction.  The letter was given to the Local Authority by Ofsted upon terms which forbad the disclosure of the letter to the public until after 29 March 2019.

 

The Interim Strategic Director of Children’s Services advised members that verbal feedback had been received.  This had indicated that in all cases that were looked at, there were no instances where children were not being properly safeguarded.  She added that most areas were showing positive progress and that the inspectors were impressed with the co-location of the early help gateway.  It was noted that real progress had been demonstrated and that this was a positive start to the improvement journey and monitoring visits.

 

The Leader thanked the Interim Strategic Director and her team for bringing the authority to its current position.

 

The Children and Families Portfolio Holder noted that the authority had taken the decision to publish the Ofsted report of the monitoring visit and that it would be reported to the Children’s Services Overview and Scrutiny Committee.  He thanked officers for the progress that had been made.  He highlighted that Ofsted had indicated that the authority was starting to make positive progress from a very low base in improving the services and response that children and families receive when requests for services are first made.

 

The Interim Strategic Director advised members of the action that had been taken to address the delays in assessing the needs of young people who present as homeless.  She reported that responsibility for 16-18 year old homeless young people had been moved into the front door MASH which offered a more holistic and timely response from a multi agency team.  She added that with immediate effect, all staff engaged with 16-18 year old homeless young people would explain that they had the right to become a looked after child and continue to offer this if at first they did not see it as  a positive option.

 

The Leader noted that his was the beginning of an improvement journey.  She reported that a new Strategic Director of Children’s Services had been appointed and thanked the Interim Strategic Director for her support in recruiting her successor.  ...  view the full minutes text for item 112.
