Report by the Director of Finance.

 

1
There was submitted a revenue and capital budget monitoring report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to revenue and capital budget expenditure and adjustments for the period to 8 January 2021.

DECIDED:  

(a)  That the projected revenue outturn position as detailed in Table 1 of the report be noted, considering that the forecast position was based on best estimates and confirmed government support to date, and may not incorporate the full financial implications of a sustained period of the current lockdown arrangements.  Forecasts were therefore likely to fluctuate considerably as the full service implications and associated costs of the pandemic became clear.

(b)  That the projected capital outturn position detailed in Table 2 of the report be noted; and

(c)  That the budget adjustments detailed at sections 4 and 6 of the report be noted. 
 

Report by the Director of Finance & Resources.

 

2
There was submitted a revenue and capital budget monitoring report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to an overview of revenue and capital expenditure for the period to 8 January 2021.

DECIDED:  

(a)  That the projected revenue outturn position detailed in Table 1 of the report be noted, considering that the forecast position was based on best estimates and confirmed government support to date and did not yet incorporate the potential costs associated with Council support for the mass vaccination programme.  Forecasts were therefore likely to fluctuate considerably as the full service implications and associated costs of the pandemic evolved; and

(b)  That the projected capital outturn position detailed in Table 2 of the report be noted.

Section 3

Report by the Chief Executive.

 

3
Under reference to paragraph 10 of the Minute of the meeting of this Policy Board held on 2 February 2021, there was submitted a report by the Chief Executive relative to the Chief Executive’s Service – Service Delivery Plan 2021/22 (the Plan).  A copy of the Plan was appended to the report and set out the priorities to be addressed; the key tasks to be implemented; the implementation timetable; and our measures of success.

The report advised that each year Council services developed and prepared a Service Improvement Plan; a three-year rolling programme setting out the key priorities and actions to be undertaken by the service and the performance measures and associated targets to be used to evidence progress.  However, this year, considering the significant impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the provision of services by the organisation overall, an interim change was made to the service improvement planning process for 2021/22, with Service Delivery Plans being developed for each Council service.  Although these plans still focussed on some of the longer term ambitions and priorities being progressed by services, there was a much greater focus on the next 12 months, and the work that would be undertaken as part of the ongoing Covid-19 response to stabilise and adapt the way in which services were provided.

The report also explained that in line with operational changes to the delivery of services, planning and development management services had transferred from the Communities, Housing and Planning Service to the Chief Executive’s Service.  As such, the Plan had also been submitted to the Communities, Housing & Planning Policy Board for approval of the actions and performance targets that related to the planning and development management functions and therefore came under the remit of that Policy Board.  

DECIDED:

(a)  That the elements of the Chief Executive’s Service – Service Delivery Plan 2021/22, as appended to the report, which came under the remit of this Policy Board be approved;

(b)  That it be agreed that an update on progress to deliver the Plan be submitted to this Policy Board in Autumn 2021; and

(c)  That it be noted that the Plan had also been submitted to the Communities, Housing & Planning Policy Board for approval of the elements covered by that Board’s remit.
 

Report by the Director of Finance & Resources.

Under reference to paragraph 9 of the Minute of the meeting of this Policy Board held on 2 February 2021, there was submitted a report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to the Finance & Resources Service – Service Delivery Plan 2021/22 (the Plan).  A copy of the Plan was appended to the report and set out the priorities to be addressed; the key tasks to be implemented; the implementation timetable; and our measures of success.

The report advised that each year Council services developed and prepared a Service Improvement Plan; a three-year rolling programme setting out the key priorities and actions to be undertaken by the service and the performance measures and associated targets to be used to evidence progress.  However, this year, considering the significant impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the provision of services by the organisation overall, an interim change was made to the service improvement planning process for 2021/22, with Service Delivery Plans being developed for each Council service.  Although these plans still focussed on some of the longer term ambitions and priorities being progressed by services, there was a much greater focus on the next 12 months, and the work that would be undertaken as part of the ongoing Covid-19 response to stabilise and adapt the way in which services were provided.

DECIDED:

(a)  That the Finance & Resources Service – Service Delivery Plan 2021/22 as appended to the report be approved; and

(b)  That it be agreed that mid-year updates on progress to deliver the Plan be submitted to the appropriate Policy Board in Autumn 2021 and early Summer 2022.
 

Report by the Director of Environment & Infrastructure.

There was submitted a report by the Director of Environment & Infrastructure relative to the Environment & Infrastructure Service Delivery Plan 2021/22 (the Plan).  A copy of the Plan was appended to the report and set out the priorities to be addressed; the key tasks to be implemented; the implementation timetable; and our measures of success.

The report advised that Council services typically reported on their performance and intended improvement actions through Service Improvement Plans.  However, this year the COVID-19 pandemic had had a significant impact on how services were delivered and on the needs of the community.  Consequently, services had produced Service Delivery Plans for 2021/22 setting out the actions they will take to assist in recovery. 

DECIDED:

(a)  That the Environment & Infrastructure Service Delivery Plan 2021/22, as appended to the report and as specific to the areas of activity delegated to this Policy Board, be approved; 

(b)  That it be agreed that progress to deliver the specific areas of the Plan that were delegated to this Policy Board be reported to this Policy Board in November 2021; and

(c)  That it be noted that the Plan would also be submitted to the Infrastructure, Land & Environment Policy Board to approve elements of activity covered within that Policy Board’s remit.
 

Report by the Director of Environment & Infrastructure.

DECIDED:  That it be agreed that no changes be made to the Renfrewshire Council Byelaws on the Employment of Children 2010 at this time.

Report by the Director of Finance & Resources.

 

8
There was submitted a report by the Director of Finance & Resources relative to revisions to the Council’s existing pay and grading structure for Local Government Employees and the redesign of the Council’s current pay and grading structure to meet the commitment of the Scottish Joint Council (SJC) to consolidate the living wage into locally agreed pay and grading structures as an hourly rate of pay for Local Government Employees.  The proposed pay and grading structure to be implemented with effect from 1 April 2021 was attached as an appendix to the report.  The proposed pay and grading structure did not apply to employees covered by Teaching, Craft or Chief Officials conditions of service.

The report advised that the proposed pay and grading structure: consolidated the Scottish Local Government Living Wage into the Council’s pay structure for Local Government Employees as the minimum hourly rate of pay; restored the pay differentials between grades within a pay structure that had been eroded by recent increases in the level of the Living Wage; removed all overlaps from the pay scales of adjacent grades in the structure, in accordance with best practice; and reduced the overall length of each pay scale, within the SJC spinal column points, to a maximum of five incremental steps by year 2025.

The cost of implementing the revised pay and grading structure was approximately £400,000, 90% of which would be invested within the first year of the new structure to the bottom four grades, impacting approximately 3000 of the lowest paid employees.  No employee would be in financial detriment because of the implementation of the revisions to the pay structure.

DECIDED:

(a)  That the implementation of the revised pay and grading structure as set out in the Appendix to the report be approved with effect from 1 April 2021, subject to agreement being reached with the recognised trade unions, Unison, Unite and GMB;

(b)  That the Head of Transformational & Organisational Development be authorised to carry out appropriate assimilation arrangements to transition employees to the revised pay and grading structure;

(c)  That the cost of the revised pay structure as detailed within the report be noted; and

(d)  That the positive outcome of the impact assessment undertaken by the Council’s recognised independent technical adviser as detailed in the report be noted.

The new strategy provided a 5-year framework, with three clear strategic outcomes, supported by range of organisational development and workforce planning activities to be delivered over the period.  Immediate priorities over the next 1-2 years would focus on supporting the workforce to respond to and recover from Covid-19.

DECIDED:
