Declarations of Interest

Councillors Montgomery and Kerr, having previously declared an interest in the undernoted item, left the meeting and took no part in the discussion or voting thereon.

Councillor Steel also declared an interest during consideration of the undernoted item as he was a member of the Board of Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau and remained in the meeting.

"Core Funding for Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau

 

Council notes that Renfrewshire Council has been the principal funder of Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureaux (RCAB) core services, a core service being 'infrastructure' i.e. managing the service, volunteer recruitment and staff to deliver the minimum CAS-stipulated range of services.  Additional funding has also been granted to establish specialist projects such as financial inclusion and money advice.

 

Council further notes that following the newly introduced competitive open-market procurement process, RCAB has been funded to deliver a range of specialist services , but is no longer funded a sum to support core services.

 

In addition, under the previous grant settlements, RCAB was funded to support 800 clients per annum; RCAB is now contracted to support 5,000 clients per annum.  This translates to a significant increase in service requirements to be delivered with less financial resource.

 

Council accepts the need to maintain grant funding of £66.67k per annum over 36 months, paid quarterly, to run concurrently with the newly awarded contract Advice Services RC-CPU-17-098 for RCAB core services, to ensure the on-going sustainability of Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureaux core services and the overall survival of a key asset for our community."

10

Motion to Suspend Standing Orders

"Renfrewshire's ASN Children

 

Council believes that not enough is being done to support Renfrewshire's ASN kids during school holidays.  Council notes that despite having over a year to come up with suitable play schemes to support our children very little has been done leaving parents very frustrated.  Council also notes that ASN children in Renfrewshire are being disadvantaged in comparison to mainstream children, council resolves to correct this and make appropriate provisions in order that our ASN children are afforded the same opportunities as their peers."

"Grass cutting

 

In many areas across the council, residents are disappointed at the lack of grass cutting or large time gaps between each cut.  In situations where it has been a while since the last cut, the grass is long and when left lying makes the open spaces look un-kept.  Many residents ask for the grass to be collected rather than left lying.  It is recognised that with some types of machinery it may not always be possible to fit grass collection boxes.  The Director of Environment & Communities is asked to bring back to the Infrastructure, land and Environment Policy Board a report on the cost of adding collection boxes to the grass cutting machinery and where possible collecting and disposing of the grass cuttings."

"Understanding of cyclists behaviour on the road.

 

This council agrees to the following:

 

That there is a lack of understanding by motorists on the way cyclists should behave on the roads.  Many drivers think that it is wrong for cyclists to cycle two abreast when this is sometimes actually encouraged by cycling organisations, or that cyclists should not be cycling in the gutter and should take up a more prominent position on the road to protect themselves.

 

That Council writes to the Secretary of State for Transport and ask that an understanding of the way cyclists should behave on the road should be incorporated into the driving test.

 

That Council also encourages more road safety training for cyclists (e.g. through Bikeability,) for both adults and children."

"Adoption of roads in new developments

 

Council does not agree with the current lottery of adoption of roads in new developments.  It is unfair to expect residents living in a cul-de-sac to pay a factor to maintain their road on top of their council tax, when the same house perhaps only 200 metres away could pay the same council tax and no factoring fee, because their road got adopted for no clear reason.

 

Council agrees that any developers building new roads in Renfrewshire are encouraged to build them to a standard that could enable the council to adopt them."
