The following questions were then submitted in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11.1:

 

1. Development Control

 

Question from Councillor Vinson to Councillor Thorpe

 

Is the Cabinet Member aware that, despite the claims of his predecessor to have strengthened Development Control, there is currently a serious backlog in inspections and enforcement actions?

 

Answer

 

Yes, I am aware of this issue and it is being addressed. There is currently an enforcement backlog, due to particular resource pressures in this area; there are currently just two planning enforcement officers in post. However we are currently recruiting a further two enforcement officers; one is a new, temporary, fixed term post to deal with HMOs and the other is a vacant post.

 

 

2. Fly-tipping

 

Question from Councillor Turner to Councillor Thorpe

 

What measures will be taken this year to deal with the problem of fly-tipping in the City?

 

Answer

 

The Regulatory Services Division has taken the lead in coordinating teams across the council to tackle Fly tipping.

 

City Patrol, Environmental Health, Trading Standards, Streetscene & Community Safety, Waste Services, Housing, and others are working together with the police, Hampshire Fire & Rescue and neighbouring local authorities to deter fly tipping and hold those who repeatedly engage in this criminal behaviour to account.

 

Coxford Road, where it meets Lords Wood has been identified by the group as the city’s number 1 fly tipping hotspot.  As a result a specific action plan to tackle fly tipping in this particular location is being implemented.

 

The intention is to rollout this approach to other ‘hotspots’ and identify appropriate action at each to engage the local community, educate, deter and take enforcement action against those found responsible.

 

This work will link with the planned programme of Street CRED days (Crime Reduction and Environment Days) which will also focus on geographical areas of the City and take an inter-agency approach to dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour.

 

3. Young Carers

 

Question from Councillor Turner to Councillor Bogle

 

What is being done to ensure support for the education and personal development of young carers in Southampton?

 

Answer

 

The City Council contract with Southampton Voluntary Services to provide comprehensive support to young people who are carers.  The service ensures that young carers have access to personalised support, leisure activity, alternative learning experiences and health advice and guidance.  The service worked with approximately 120 young carers during 2011/12 and is continuing this work in 2012/13.
