    1.  Public Question from Toby O'Connor

     

    What are the main challenges and opportunities for public engagement in planning processes in the coronavirus situation for example with the current consultations on the statement of community involvement, regeneration charters, the local plan EIP and planning committee meetings?

     

    Response

     

    We are reviewing the democratic processes in light of the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic. The current unprecedented situation will mean that some decisions and progress on adopting planning policies will be delayed. At the moment it is too early to give details but in the main we are working solely on supporting our residents through this crisis. 

     

    Mr O'Connor asked a supplemental question relating to public engagement during the covid outbreak.

     

    The Leader confirmed that public engagement would be considered seriously.  Addenda to reports on this meeting's agenda covered the issues, and decision-making would go forward following governmental regulations.

     

    LATE PUBLIC QUESTIONS

     

     

    2.  Public Question from Aysen, Wendover TRA

     

    I would like to know, what is the council's intention or plan to keep estates clean & hygienic. As I live on Aylesbury/ Wendover block there is no cleaning already. Are they going to deep clean each estate, where lots of people are living, which makes us more exposed?

     

    Response for questions 2 – 7

    Following the postponement of this cabinet meeting as a result of COVID-19 and in response to these questions the cabinet member arranged a meeting with Southwark Group of Tenant Organisation (SGTO) in which he answered these questions – you can find a recording of the meeting here:

    The cabinet member thanks you for your questions and will continue to engage with you throughout this process.

     

    3.  Public Question from Danielle, Lindley Estate

     

    What happens with urgent repairs for council properties, things like broken boilers, electricity outages, uncontainable leaks. Will the repairs service continue operating? Do we continue ringing the call centre in the usual way? How can households/tradespeople ensure they stay safe whilst social distancing measures are in place?

     

    4.  Public Question from June, Brandon Estate

     

    Are there any plans for a council tax amnesty? There is talk of mortgage and rent amnesty done by the Government. A service charge 3 month relief  holiday for leaseholders would help. A 3 month amnesty for charges for major works/heating again would be a big help to leaseholders.

     

    5.  Public Question from Chinelo, Bell Gardens Estate

     

    I have questions around cleaning communal spaces, in particular places that aren't often cleaned, if at all. For example, "outdoor" corridors guarded by balconies/hand railings. Will cleaning protocols be updated to be more inclusive and thorough?

    6.  Public Question from Grace, Southampton Way

     

    Is the council planning for when the situation gets worse and more staff go off sick? We will definitely need more care workers, street cleaners, meals delivery, childcare for key workers, housing for homeless - can the council recruit  ...  view the full minutes text for item 5.
