Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Further to Minute No. 159 of the meeting of the Cabinet Member - Technical Services held on 6 April 2011, the Cabinet considered the report of the Environmental and Technical Services Director which sought approval for amendments to the staffing establishment, in order to make adequate provision for undertaking new statutory duties relating to Flood Risk Management.
(1) the impact of the new duties, together with existing flood defence and coastal defence responsibilities, be noted;
(2) the Council’s specific grant allocations within the Local Government Finance Settlement of £120,600 in 2011/12 and £157,900 in 2012/13 be noted; and
(3) approval be given to the allocation of £70,000 out of the above funding to the Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management function, from April 2011 in order to facilitate adequate delivery of the new duties, through the creation of one full time equivalent new post, which would provide a redeployment opportunity for staff under risk of redundancy as a result of the Council’s budget savings in 2011/12.
