10/09/2019 - Motion by Councillor Eddie Reeves ref: 7863    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: County Council

Made at meeting: 10/09/2019 - County Council

Decision published: 12/09/2019

Effective from: 10/09/2019

Decision:

With the consent of Council, Councillor Reeves moved an amendment to his motion as set out below in bold itailic/strikethrough:

 

“This Council welcomes the additional annual investment from government (‘DfT’) in our highways, through our maintenance block allocation, and any additional funding that we have been awarded through the pot hole fund and the challenge fund, which amounts to around £13,500,00 each year.

 

The Council has chosen to invest in highway maintenance from our additional £120,000,000 into infrastructure over ten years, plus investing £40,000,000 into street lighting.  This amounts to:

 

  1. £10,000,000.00 in the financial year 2018/19; and

 

  1. a further £15,000,000.00 in 2019/20.

 

This Council notes that the government allocated additional monies from the Highways Maintenance and Integrated Transport Block monies make Oxfordshire one of the most heavily invested counties in the South of England, with only significantly larger counties such as Hampshire and Kent receiving more funding in recent years.

 

This Council further notes the success of its internal and prudential borrowing policy, which is already yielding welcome improvements to roads across Oxfordshire.

 

This Council resolves to:

 

1.         review ways in which non-ringfenced DfT funds such as the Integrated Transport Block allocation of £3,700,000 can be leveraged alongside s.106. and Councillors’ Priority Fund (‘CPF’monies with a view to improving roads and school crossings where there is demonstrable need;

 

2.         consider extending the date for allocating any unspent CPF Councillor’s Priority Fund monies beyond January 2020 where members are in discussions with officers regarding complementary s.106 monies that may be used to generate more comprehensive solutions and said officers are in need of more time; and

 

3.         review traffic congestion management arrangements in our market towns with a view to working with both District partners and Thames Valley Police to explore opportunities for decriminalised parking and residents’ parking schemes in areas of acute need.”

 

The motion, as amended was agreed by 41 votes to 15, with 1 abstention.

10/09/2019 - Motion from Councillor Deborah McIlveen ref: 7864    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: County Council

Made at meeting: 10/09/2019 - County Council

Decision published: 12/09/2019

Effective from: 10/09/2019

Decision:

With the consent of Council, Councillor MclIveen moved her motion, amended at the suggestion of Councillor Charles Mathew as shown in bold italics and strikethrough below:

 

“Living costs in Oxfordshire are high and pay is relatively low. High housing costs mean that employers in the public and private sectors struggle to recruit and retain staff.  There are vacancies in all areas of the public sector and this is affecting service delivery. Housing costs in Oxfordshire have risen at a similar rate to those in London where workers in the Public Sector are paid a London Living Wage of £10.55 per hour.

 

Paying a Local Living Wage will enable people to take up job opportunities in Oxfordshire and according to employers would

 

?   improve staff’s quality of work;

?   decrease Absenteeism;

?   with better retention lower human resources costs.

 

It enables people to live on their wages and reduces in work benefits via Universal Credit. Paying the local Living Wage increases investment in the local economy.

Oxfordshire County Council asks the Cabinet to set up a working group with health partners and the Oxfordshire System Workforce Group to investigate implementation, including the cost to individual sectors of the Community, of a Living Wage policy in Oxfordshire (similar to London) and its countywide impact.”

 

The motion as amended was approved by 57 votes to 0 (unanimously).

Decision published: 12/09/2019

Effective from: 10/09/2019

Decision:

With the consent of Council, Councillor Atkins moved her motion, amended at the suggestion of Councillor Brighouse as shown in bold italics and strikethrough below:

 

“The way in which the County Council governs itself is a subject which should be carefully considered and regularly reviewed.  The selection of our Chairman and Vice-Chairman is particularly important, as we all rely on the Councillor in the Chair to bring at least some semblance of order and civility to all our proceedings, and to help us get our job as a Council done.

 

The current arrangements for the selection of Chairman and Vice Chairman, involving rotation of the posts between the 3 main political groups, have currently been in place for 6 years (having been set up many years ago, with a 4-year interregnum between 2009 and 2013) and so the time is right for us to consider whether they work well or could perhaps be improved.  

 

Council asks the Leader of the Council to set up a cross-party group to look at how our Chairman and Vice-Chairman are selected, and if necessary, to make recommendations to the Council for change, bearing in mind that any choice is always subject to the overriding requirement for the Council to accept any nomination.” consider changes to the current arrangements of selecting the Chair and vice Chair as part of the normal constitution review.

 

The motion as amended was agreed nem con.
