Report and presentation attached.
The report before Members set out the quarter 4 performance that was relevant to the remit of the Sub-Committee.
Two performance indicators had been included in the Quarter 4 (January 2019 – March 2019) report and presentation.
The Waste tonnages indicator had been assigned a green status, whilst the fly-tipping indicator had also been assigned a green status.
During discussion, Members suggested that consideration be given to bulk item collection at no cost to the resident, to aid in the reduction of fly tipping, however Members were advised that this might lead to an increase in waste and associated costs, however the exact implications would be reported back to the Sub-Committee.
A report on hot spots for fly tipping and a plan of action that the authority would be taking was requested to be presented to the next meeting.
Members views were sought on the potential new performance indicators that could be monitored for the 2019/20 financial year. Members agreed that all performance indicators would be reported to the next meeting, however members indicated an interest in the following indicators:
· Total household waste per head of population (kg), to include information on tracking HMOs
· Number of new HMO licenses issues
· Number of HMOs enforced against
· PCN appeals response rate (and issues), to include the number of appeals won against the Local Authority, categories and the plans to train officers to deal with the issuing of PCN’s in order to reduce the number of successful appeals.
