Harlow’s Essex County councillor’s questions to council

Politics / Sun 12th Oct 2014 at 07:45pm

YH thought we would have a dip into the agenda at next weeks full meeting of Essex County Council.

Two Essex County Councillors from Harlow have submitted questions.

By Councillor K Clempner of the Cabinet Member for Libraries,
Communities and Planning

“Essex County Council is committed to working in partnership with other agencies to ensure that an appropriate balance is struck between the rights of local settled communities and the rights of
Travellers.

To this end it owns and manages a Traveller site at Fern Hill in Harlow. Regrettably approximately half of this site has been derelict for ten years and the County Council has not invested in it to
bring the available authorised pitches for Travellers into use.

Given that since October 2014 there have been more than sixty unauthorised and illegal Traveller encampments in Harlow, with the number of Traveller caravans varying between 20 and over 40 at any
one time, what steps is Essex County Council taking to bring the available authorised Traveller pitches at Fern Hill into use to relieve the negative impact unauthorised and illegal encampments are
having on the settled community of Harlow?’

By Councillor K Clempner of the Cabinet Member for Highways
and Transportation

Would the portfolio holder please inform the Council what progress in further consultation on the proposed junction 7A to the M11 is being made, and is he keeping the member of the division for North Harlow,
which is most affected by the proposals, fully informed, especially about local consultation meetings.’

By Councillor M Danvers of the Cabinet Member for Adults
Social Care, Public Health and Wellbeing

‘At a recent Cabinet meeting the statement was made that provision for therapy care would be ‘too expensive to contemplate’ in house as opposed to the private sector. Would the portfolio holder explain the evidence that has given rise to this statement?’

By Councillor M Danvers of the Cabinet Member for Adults
Social Care, Public Health and Wellbeing

Would the portfolio holder indicate what further progress is being made in writing into new contracts for care companies better conditions of service including a living wage and the avoidance of zero hour contracts that insist that the person does not apply for other paid employment
