Mr Trainer gave a verbal report to Members highlighting specific incidents Ingleby Barwick Enforcement Officers had either dealt with or were continuing to deal with.
Parking issues continue to be a problem in Ingleby Barwick which Officers deal with on a regular basis. A number of notices have been issued on resident’s vehicles which have been causing an obstruction. It was noted that the number of cars per household is increasing and with limited parking provided on properties this is forcing more cars onto the road. Enforcement Officers continue to liaise with residents on the matter as well as Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s (S.B.C.) Highways Department to ascertain if anything can be done to resolve the problem.
A lengthy discussion took place on the parking issues at all of the Primary Schools in Ingleby Barwick.

236. PROPOSED YOUTH CAFÉ FACILITY, INGLEBY BARWICK – MEETING TO BE ATTENDED BY KHALID AZAM AND LYNN SPARREY FROM STOCKTON-ON-TEES BOROUGH COUNCIL.
The Chairman introduced Khalid Azam and Lynn Sparrey from S.B.C. and welcomed them to the meeting.
It was noted that an informal meeting had taken place on 16th March 2009 with Lynn Sparrey and Khalid Azam which was attended by Town Councillors T. W. Bowman, W. Feldon, Mrs I. Machin, J. Myers and the Clerk. A general discussion had taken place on progress with the proposed Youth Café facility.
It was noted that the preferred site for the youth café would be a central location on the estate. Reference was made to the site opposite All Saints Secondary School which is an ideal location and to date no housing development has taken place in the nearby vicinity, therefore if sited there any potential house buyers would be aware of the facility.
The suggestion of the youth café being sited at Beckfields was raised. Various concerns were highlighted. It was noted that the Community Hall at the location, which is run by the Management Committee, a group of volunteers, is well used by a number of groups providing activities for a range of age groups. Reference was also made to the croquet pitch which is being provided on Beckfields green for the Over 50’s.
It was noted that the Town Council has sent a letter to Tesco raising the issue of a suitable location for the Youth Café and requesting that they consider providing some land on their site, possibly adjacent to Romano Park.
Reference was made to the millions of pounds raised for Comic Relief and it was questioned as to where the money is spent.

The Officers in attendance from S.B.C. gave an outline of the situation to date. It was noted that initially 10 sites had been identified as possible locations, of which a number had been ruled out due to their unsuitability. Members were provided with photographs of five of the locations which had been under consideration, one of which is the Beckfields site. A brief review was given of each of the locations.


It was noted that Youth Café provision has been looked at across the Borough. Sites had been easily identified in both Thornaby and Billingham; however Officers were now concentrating on finding a site in Ingleby Barwick.

Chairman…………………………………

6 of 29
Reference was made to North Stockton and to the award of £4,995,250 from the Myplace programme to create the new state-of-the-art youth facility known as ICE Centre in Stockton’s Tilery Area.
Officers outlined the overall funding available and noted that £113,200 had been allocated for 2008/09 of which there is anticipated to be a balance carried forward of around £60,000. Further funding of £113,200 has also been allocated for the financial years 2009/10 and 2010/11 from the Youth Capital Fund.

It was noted that given the limited funding available to provide a facility in Ingleby Barwick, land ownership had been a material consideration in identifying suitable sites.


A general discussion took place on the St. Francis of Assisi Church site adjacent to Barwick Way, however this site has now been ruled out.
Consideration has been given to siting the Youth Café on Beckfields green, however this has not been progressed further than having a soil survey undertaken to determine its suitability. Reference was made to a possible covenant on the land.
Officers outlined the costs of providing a good quality modular building which would be in the region of £200,000. To provide a suitable size brick built building costs would be in the region of £500,000.
It was questioned as to where the most suitable site for the youth café would be and it was reiterated that a central location on the estate would be most favourable.
Town Councillors Mrs G. Corr and Ms A. Hailes declared a personal/prejudicial interest at this point as the Tesco site was raised for consideration and both Members are employed by Tesco. Councillor Mrs Corr and Councillor Ms Hailes left the meeting room for the duration of the discussion on the matter.
A general discussion took place. A response is awaited from Tesco to the Town Council’s recent letter requesting that they consider providing some land on their site to locate the facility.
Town Councillors Mrs G. Corr and Ms A. Hailes returned to the meeting room.
The importance of finding a suitable site as soon as possible was highlighted.
Further suggested locations were raised which included the piece of land on the corner of Myton Way where it meets with Blair Avenue (adjacent to Barwick Lane) and the piece of land adjacent to Bannatyne’s car park which is possibly privately owned.
Chairman……………………………………….

7 of 29


Ward Councillor D. Harrington suggested at this point that he writes to Mr Bannatyne to ascertain the availability of the land for the provision of the Youth Café. This is to be progressed.
Reference was made to Phase 2 of Romano Park, the area of land to the rear of All Saints Secondary School. It was noted that this could be a possible location however until the Building Schools for the Future situation has been finalised this location is not under consideration.
It was reiterated that the Beckfields site should only be considered if all else fails.
It was suggested that Lynn Sparrey progresses a formal survey to be undertaken of the site with S.B.C. architects.
RESOLVED that the Town Council investigates the possibility of applying to Comic Relief for funding.
RESOLVED that a Working Group be set up to work with Officers on progressing the matter. The Working Group to consist of Ward Councillor D. Harrington and Town Councillors W. Feldon and J. Myers.

(a) Item 146 2008/2009 – Pedestrian Underpasses, Ingleby Barwick.

8 of 29

The meeting was attended by Town Councillors Mrs I. Machin, W. Feldon, the Clerk, a PCSO and two Enforcement Officers as well as the resident who has requested that consideration be given to closing off the footpath which leads into Greys Court from the underpass.


An update was given on the matter. The area is continuing to be monitored and arrangements have been made for the location to be regularly checked by the adjacent CCTV camera.
The Clerk circulated information which she had received from S.B.C. regarding the procedure for closing off a public footpath.
RESOLVED that the information be noted.
(b) Item 168 2008/2009 Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council, Green Exercise Scheme for People 50+.
The Clerk informed that the Over 50’s Group are awaiting receipt of the funding for the croquet pitch.
(c) Item 205 2008/2009 Bail Hostels.
The Clerk reported receipt of the response from Dari Taylor MP for Stockton South in respect of the bail hostels in the TS17 location.
The letter, which was circulated to Members prior to the meeting, states that there are two Bail hostels in Stockton South, neither of which are in Ingleby Barwick.

It is noted that the Ministry of Justice has contracted with ClearSprings Management Ltd to provide private rented accommodation for those on bail or Home Detention Curfew (HDC). Typically three or four people share in a similar manner to students sharing; they have their own bedroom and share a kitchen, bathroom and sitting room in a single gender house, and cook and clean for themselves.

There are additional supervisory obligations on all who reside at a ClearSprings’ property, developed with community safety in mind. Residents are required to live at the address and to comply with their residency obligations. If they do not comply with the rules they can have the service withdrawn and be breached, removed from the property and returned quickly to court or prison.

Compliance with the rules is monitored by a designated support officer. The individuals on bail are visited three times a week for one hour in the first three weeks and for one hour a week thereafter with an additional hour in the last week. The support officer helps each person to abide by their bail conditions, find a suitable move-on address, assist with re-employment and/or education and with life skills, and deters them from re-offending.


Chairman……………………………

Those on HDC will either be managed by probation or will have a ClearSprings support officer providing one, one hour contact session each week.

There are additional eligibility criteria for those residing at ClearSprings address: sex offenders and anyone charged with a sex offence, arsonists of buildings and anyone who poses a significant risk to the public or to ClearSprings staff are excluded from the service.

For HDC the existing limitations on eligibility apply – these exclude those who have previously failed to comply with temporary release or curfew and most of those who have committed a range of serious and violent offences. HDC is limited to prisoners serving sentences of 3 months to less than 4 years. All those released on HDC are tagged. Those on bail may also be tagged, at the court’s discretion. Immediate neighbours are provided with a contact number should they have any concerns about behaviour so that the matter can be dealt with promptly and appropriately.

The service was developed in response to requests from judges and magistrates who have been asking the government to provide bail accommodation, because they see many people who could be bailed safely if only they had somewhere to live. It is noted that there is no merit in unnecessarily placing people entitled to bail in prison; it is unjust and uneconomic. For context, the Courts bail around 500,000 people and around 14,000 prisoners are released on HDC a year. The vast majority of those who are released on bail and on HDC are living in residential areas in their own homes with no attention drawn to them.

It is stated that if bail hostels were not supplied, these individuals would be left sleeping on floors or ‘couch hopping’ and would be far more likely to return to a life of crime. The decency of giving people a second chance demands that bail hostels are provided.
RESOLVED that the information be noted.
(d) Item 213 2008/2009 Highway/traffic Issues, Ingleby Barwick.
It was noted that the give way lines/road markings have now been reinstated at Fountains Avenue, Ingleby Barwick however the centre lines have not been repainted which is to be pursued.
The Clerk reported that the road markings at Lamb Lane adjacent to Barley Fields Primary School and St. Therese of Lisieux RC Primary School are expected to be repainted in early April 2009.
(e) Item 218 2008/2009 Spaces for Play – Land Adjacent to Ingleby Mill Primary School.
The Clerk reported receipt of correspondence from S.B.C. informing that the Town Council will be provided with an update on this matter in the near future.

Chairman………………………………

The work is expected to be undertaken on Friday 17th April 2009. The Management Committee looks forward to release of the funding in due course.
Ward Councillors D. Harrington and K. Dixon left the meeting at this point.
239. GREENSIDE AND BECKFIELDS SHOPPING CENTRES, INGLEBY BARWICK.

Under the tenant agreement the tenant is responsible for all matters relating to the operation of the property as a Public House and for compliance with any Statute that would govern this activity.

The tenant was also asked to advise the Town Council of their current policy with regard to the general upkeep and cleanliness of the area. It was suggested that they may want to contact S.B.C.’s Care For Your Area team regarding the possibility of entering into a Service Level Agreement with them, whereby S.B.C. provide a regular cleansing service at an agreed cost. The tenant was offered the opportunity to meet with Town Council Members to discuss both this issue and any other relevant issues in respect of Greenside shopping centre.

A copy of the letter was sent to Trust Inns Ltd., for their information

Chairman……………………………………


11 of 29

It is noted that at this moment there is nothing concrete to say Barclays, with whom the Town Council banks, are in trouble but there are some question marks as to the assets they hold on their balance sheet.


Despite these rumours their ratings remain solid, and S.B.C. continue to use them. It is suggested that the Town Council continues to use them and if there is any change in circumstances S.B.C. will let the Town Council know.

Following a request for further advice S.B.C. provided information on HSBC and the Northern Rock, a copy of which is held on the Town Council’s file.

Ward Councillor Patterson gave a brief report to the Town Council on progress to date.
The importance of securing the bridge across to Preston Park was highlighted. This is also being pursued by Friends of the River Tees Heritage Park who are scheduled to meet next week to consider bids etc.

Ward Councillor Patterson stated that a further meeting had taken place with S.B.C. Officers on 16th March 2009 and he updated the Town Council on progress. It is noted that consideration is still being given to the land at Preston Park.

13 of 29
243. ROMANO PARK, INGLEBY BARWICK.
The Clerk reported receipt of correspondence from S.B.C. regarding the progress on Romano Park. It is noted that despite the poor weather, progress has been steady. The earthworks are around 90% complete; the drainage system is in and some of the pathwork construction has begun. Wet ground conditions have affected earthworks and to date 15 days have been lost. A two week extension of time has been agreed with the contractor. The site is expected to take shape during March and therefore a site visit by interested Members of the Town Council is proposed for sometime during week commencing Monday 23rd March 2009.
The Clerk had circulated the possible options of dates and times for the site visit to Members for their consideration prior to the meeting.

14 of 29
245. PUBLIC CONSULTATION EXERCISE, INGLEBOROUGH LANE AND FOUNTAINS AVENUE, INGLEBY BARWICK.
The Clerk informed that arrangements have been made for the public consultation exercise to ascertain resident’s views. Residents of Ingleborough Lane and Fountains Avenue as well as the adjacent cul de sacs have been informed that a drop-in session is to be held on Wednesday 25th March 2009 between 5 pm and 7pm at Ingleby Barwick Community Hall.
Mr Steve Lumb Community Engineer will be in attendance.
RESOLVED that Town Councillors Mrs I. Machin, W. Feldon, Mrs J. Kirby, D. Sanderson and the Clerk attend the drop in session to liaise with residents and take comments.
246. PROPOSED SPEED INDICATION DEVICE – LOWFIELDS AVENUE, INGLEBY BARWICK.
The Clerk informed that the Town Council has received correspondence from S.B.C. enclosing a drawing showing the proposed location of the vehicle activated sign to be sited on Lowfields Avenue (previously circulated to Members in December 2008 and discussed at the Town Council meeting on 17th December 2008 when no comments were raised).
An alternative suggestion for it to be located adjacent to the pedestrian refuge 100m to the south east was made and has been carefully considered. However, on balance, it is felt the location as shown on the drawing provided (original location) would have a greater impact on road users for the following reasons:


  • The pedestrian refuge itself should act as a traffic calming feature, and a speed survey previously undertaken in the vicinity of the refuge, indicated speeds below the enforcement threshold, which would appear to support this.

  • Vehicles turning left from Middle Road onto Lowfields Avenue are unlikely to have gained sufficient speed to trigger the device.

  • The proposed location would act as a deterrent to vehicles re-entering the built up area around Burdon Garth and who may be accelerating having negotiated the pedestrian refuge.

The Town Council are requested to confirm whether they are in agreement with the outcome of the consultation exercise and that the sign be erected in the location originally suggested.

Chairman………………………………….

15 of 29


Given the short deadline for the Town Council’s response as the order for the erection of the sign needed to be placed as soon as possible, the Clerk circulated the information to Members for their comments prior to the meeting. No comments were received and Members were in agreement that the sign be sited in the original position proposed. The Clerk advised S.B.C. accordingly.
RESOLVED that the information be noted.
A general discussion took place on how to resolve the issues with speeding.
RESOLVED that the Town Council send a letter to the Police expressing concerns in respect of vehicles speeding along Lowfields Avenue, as vehicles regularly exceed the speed limit of 30 mph on the road which is a serious concern, given that two primary schools are located within close proximity i.e. Whinstone Primary School and St Francis of Assisi Primary School. The Police be requested to monitor the area on a regular basis with speed cameras to help deter offenders.
247. INGLEBY BARWICK TOWN COUNCIL – INSURANCE COVER.
The Clerk informed that following completion of the Council’s Annual Risk Assessment it had been agreed that Personal Accident cover be added to the Town Council’s insurance cover. The Clerk informed that she had received the proposal form from Allianz Insurance Plc for addition of the cover to the Town Council’s policy.
It was noted that the addition of Personal Accident covers any council member, clerk, council employee or voluntary worker between the ages of 15 and 75 against accidental bodily injury. The compensation payable is as follows:


  • Death and permanent total disablement £20,000. The compensation payable for permanent total disablement will be in accordance with the scale shown in the policy.

  • Temporary total disablement £50 per week (up to 104 weeks).

The cost of cleaning, repairing or replacing lost or damaged clothing or personal effects up to £100.


Medical expenses incurred in connection with any temporary total disablement for which compensation is payable for up to 15% of the total compensation payable.

Chairman………………………………………

16 of 29

Option to extend cover for the upper age limit for council members and clerks from 75 years to 80 years with compensation for death and permanent total disablement reduced to £10,000.

It was noted that the Town Council would require the age limit for Councillors or Clerks to be increased to 80 years.
RESOLVED that Personal Accident cover be added to the Town Council’s insurance policy with the age limit increased to 80 years. The Clerk to complete the proposal form and forward the required paperwork to Allianz Insurance accordingly.
248. DOG FOULING.

The Clerk reported receipt of a response from Teesside Magistrates’ Court in respect of fines for dog fouling, which she had circulated to members prior to the meeting.


The letter states that it would be open to the local authority to choose to prosecute for dog fouling rather than imposing a fixed penalty. However the magistrates’ court could not give an undertaking about a specific sentence. Fines vary chiefly according to the means of the offender, which means very wide differences in fines for similar offences.
For people on a low income or benefit the fine imposed by the court would be a little more than the fixed penalty amount. For people on a good income, it would be very much more.
Community sentences are not available for offences which are not punishable with imprisonment, so the only sentence available for magistrates for dog fouling are discharges and fines.
The letter then outlines fines in more detail and notes that the offence is punishable with a maximum sentence of £2,500.
A discussion took place on the matter.
RESOLVED that the Town Council sends a letter to S.B.C. stating that a stronger approach is needed to deal with litter and dog fouling issues. This problem is not isolated to Ingleby Barwick. The Town Council to request that S.B.C. gives serious consideration to offenders being prosecuted through the Magistrates’ Court rather than the current procedure of being issued with a FPN.
249. BUS SERVICES, INGLEBY BARWICK.

It was noted that bus services had been discussed at the recent Parish Council Liaison forum where Members had received an overview of Public Transport Powers and also a presentation on the contracts for Boroughbus Services 2009-2011.


Chairman……………………………………

17 of 29
It was noted that the Local Transport Bill gained Royal Assent late in 2008. The Act is designed to ensure that local authorities and bus operators are able to work more closely together to improve bus services. It proposes several mechanisms to achieve this, taking into account the fact that bus operation is a private sector business and subject to the competition act.


In respect of the Boroughbus Services, the present contracts for Council supported bus services are due to expire on 31st March 2009 and tenders for replacement contracts have been obtained from bus operators. The Joint Public Transport Group (JPTG) conducted the tendering process on behalf of the Council. After receipt of all the tenders, it was apparent that the total costs of all services tendered for considerably exceeded the amount available in the Council’s budget.
After evaluation of all the services, Cabinet Member approval was given to issue new contracts for all the present subsidised services for schools, early morning, daytime and De Minimis contracts (De Minimis contracts are for diversions to commercial routes paid for by the Council).
It was agreed to defer issuing any contracts on the revised 20 daytime service until it was clear that there would be continuing support for the service from Middlesbrough Borough Council and Durham Tees Valley airport, who contribute to the costs. Retention of early morning, daytime and De Minimis diversions best preserves access to employment, healthcare, shopping and other services that are predominantly available during the day by public transport.
Consideration of evening and Sunday services, with the exception of the 556, has been deferred pending a further assessment based on cost, available budget and the potential for alternative provision using the Council’s own bus fleet (e.g. demand responsive services like Community Lynx), especially where demand is too low to justify conventional subsidised services. It was also agreed not to issue a contract for the proposed X6 evening and Sunday service because insufficient funding was available to support more services. To enable the Council to meet legal requirements for notification of service changes, the existing contracts for evening and Sunday services are being extended pending the outcome of the assessment.
A general discussion took place on the matter.
250. UK NATIONAL HONOURS.
The Clerk informed that the Town Council had received correspondence stating that Prime Minister Gordon Brown is calling on the nation to make sure local heroes who make a big difference to their communities are honoured by the nation.
Chairman……………………………………

18 of 29


A nomination form and appropriate guidance have been provided, a copy of which had been circulated to Members prior to the meeting.
A discussion took place on the matter and several suggestions were made however it was noted that the Town Council would need more detailed information on any particular person for whom they were either asked to provide a letter of support or to nominate for an honour.
251. TEES VALLEY TOWN AND PARISH COUNCILS ETHICAL GOVERNANCE WORKSHOP, FRIDAY 8TH MAY 2009.

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter from S.B.C. advising the Town Council of the arrangements for the proposed training workshop for Town and Parish Councils in the Tees Valley.


The half day event will take place on 8th May 2009 and will include presentations on the current code of conduct and proposed revised code, and also on the local assessment arrangements for the determination of allegations of member misconduct.
There will, in addition, be opportunities for whole group discussions and questions, as well as smaller group exercises around code of conduct case studies.
It is noted that the event will provide an excellent opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from many other Town and Parish Councils in the area.
Given the number of such councils in the Tees Valley, each parish and town council is initially being offered two places at the workshop.
A programme for the event was enclosed for assistance.
The Town Council considered the information; however no Members were available to attend.
RESOLOVED that the Clerk replies to S.B.C. accordingly.
252. PARISH COUNCIL LIAISON FORUM, MONDAY 16TH MARCH 2009 AT 7.00 P.M. AT THE COUNCIL CHAMBER, TOWN HALL, HIGH STREET, STOCKTON-ON-TEES – REPORT BACK.

253. FINANCE:

The Clerk/Responsible Financial Officer circulated copies of the Town Council's current financial statement, showing a total balance including reserves of £ 59,717.77, a copy of which is held on the Town Council file.


It was noted that the cheque for the sum of £47.00 for purchase of the Clerks Manual had been returned to the Town Council unpresented, as the document is currently out of stock. This amount is therefore now included in the balance.
The Community Hall Extension Account has a balance of £ 518.22.

(c) Thornaby & Ingleby Barwick Football Club (TIBS) – Application for Funding.


The Clerk referred to the letter received from TIBS which states that further to recent communications between members of our respective organisations they hereby apply for the Town Council’s support towards the continued development of their club and its facilities.
Any contribution which the Town Council deems appropriate to grant will be gratefully received and will contribute towards the installation of land drainage on their Thornaby Road Ground. As the Town Council can no doubt imagine with the particularly wet summers we seem to be having recently the pitches are all too frequently waterlogged, and they have had to postpone numerous fixtures as a consequence. They are seeking quotations for this work at present: however they do expect the associated costs will be significant. A copy of a quotation was provided for undertaking the works for the sum of £14,705.25.
Further, they also continually seek to develop and improve the Club and to do so requires investment. Examples of this are as follows:


  • They have this season added a further two boys Under 8 year old teams, both of which represent the club in the Teesside Junior Football Alliance, and a second Girls team, which represent the club in the North Riding & Tees Valley Girls League.

Establishing new sides costs the club a significant amount of time, effort and of course money. Aside from the obvious costs of new strips and match balls for each team, each team receives the necessary training equipment (balls, bibs, cones etc.). Further costs they incur include additional administrative costs, such as league fees and insurances, and others such as pitch fees or ground maintenance costs.




  • In advance of an anticipated Football Association initiative they have recently invested in pitch side barriers. This initiative is intended to make the playing area safer for the children by keeping parents and spectators a reasonable distance away from the touchlines. This also allows the coaches to be properly heard by his or her players, without the need for raising their voices.




  • The club are also continuing with their plans to advance to FA Development Club Standard from their existing Charter Standard. This requires them to ensure that all of their coaches are qualified to at least FA Level One, and at least two to be qualified to level two or above. This comes at a considerable cost.

Chairman....................................................

21 of 29

The Club enclosed a copy of their accounts up to 31st May 2008, showing a balance across their three accounts of over £17k. This however needs to be considered alongside the fact that they currently owe S.B.C. £30k with regard to the balance between the cost of the design and construction of their changing pavilion, roads and car park, on Thornaby Road, and the grant received from the Football Foundation in respect of the same.


The Town Council has shown tremendous support towards the football club for a number of years and they would like to take the opportunity to express their heartfelt gratitude for this support.
The Town Council considered the information provided.
The Clerk informed that the Town Council has £ 4,000 allocated for TIBS in their Reserve Accounts.
It was proposed and seconded that the Club be granted funding for the sum of £4,000 towards the required land drainage works. The matter was put to the vote, the majority of Members voted against the proposal and therefore the motion was not carried.
It was proposed and seconded that the Club be granted funding for the sum of £2,000 towards the required land drainage works. The matter was put to the vote, the majority of Members voted in favour of the proposal and therefore the motion was carried.
RESOLVED that TIBS be allocated funding for the sum of £2,000 towards the land drainage works, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.
(d) Section 137 Payments – Grant Applications
1st Ingleby Barwick Brownies

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter from 1st Ingleby Barwick Brownies regarding late application for a grant of £250.00, to be used towards the annual pack holiday. This year they are going to Durham Scouts Moor House Adventure Park and activities will include archery, abseiling, climbing tower and grass sledging. All the girls in the unit are residents within Ingleby Barwick. A copy of their bank statement was enclosed.


RESOLVED that the Town Council approves a grant for the sum of £ 250.00, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.
2nd Ingleby Barwick Brownies

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter from 2nd Ingleby Barwick Brownies requesting that consideration be given to grant funding of £250.00 to enable the group to keep their obligations to existing members and prospective members that are on the waiting lists.


Chairman……………………………………

22 of 29


The grant would be used to further the Brownie and Girl Guide ethos, enabling the group to take the girls on pack holiday, to a new location for the first time. They will also hopefully be visiting an adventure park were the girls will experience lots of different outside activities. Any grants received will be used solely to support the activities of the group that is made up of junior residents of Ingleby Barwick. The group’s most recent bank statement was attached.
RESOLVED that the Town Council approves a grant for the sum of £ 250.00, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.
Ingleby Barwick Rangers

The Clerk reported receipt of a letter requesting a grant for Ingleby Barwick Rangers. The group currently meets twice per month at St Francis of Assisi Church Hall.

Rangers are the Senior Section of Girl Guiding UK covering the 14-26 age range. The emphasis is on the girls planning and organising their own meetings, for example the next meeting is a music night and in the summer term they have planned a cook out, kayaking and archery amongst other things.

Just over a year ago the Senior Section resource changed from a paper format to a CD Rom. All the girls have been issued with a copy of the disk, which is given to all new starters, however the group lacks anything to view the CD on which has been a problem when planning the meetings and looking for ideas. It is requested that the Council consider a contribution towards purchasing a laptop computer and associated software. Enclosed was a copy of their most recent bank statement.

Having researched the price of laptops and software, they need approximately £460 to purchase the equipment needed. It is requested that the Council considers assisting them with a grant of £400 for the laptop which will directly benefit the young people of Ingleby Barwick.
RESOLVED that the Town Council approves a grant for the sum of £ 250.00, the Clerk to arrange payment accordingly.
254. PLANNING APPLICATIONS.
The Town Council considered the list of planning applications circulated with the Agenda for the meeting.

The Clerk referred to the Planning Applications Schedule, which states the comments made by Ingleby Barwick Town Council in relation to the planning applications listed.

The Schedule indicates the current position of the planning applications.
RESOLVED that the information be approved, a copy to be held on the Town Council’s file.

(m) Cleveland Local Councils Association, Remembrance Day Parades/ Display Energy Certificates - Receipt of correspondence stating as follows:
Remembrance Day Parades

The first concerns a Royal British Legion (RBL) briefing sent out to branches prior to last years Remembrance Day Parades which appears to make the suggestion that local councils have a duty to take responsibility for parades. Having consulted their legal team NALC are of the view that there is no duty on local councils to take responsibility for Remembrance Day Parades. It is possible that the RBL have confused duties and powers. Local Councils would have the power to contribute financially or assist the RBL in holding a parade but are under no legal obligation.


They have contacted the RBL to point this out but also to point out that many local councils already play a role in facilitating these parades. Hopefully at a national level we can work a bit closer with the RBL to avoid this confusion in future. If councils have any feedback or issues to raise on this NALC would be grateful to hear from them.
Display Energy Certificates – request for info as to its impact

A concern has been raised with NALC regarding the requirement for Display Energy Certificates in public buildings. Under the Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates & Inspections) (England & Wales) Regulations 2007, public buildings with more than 1000m2 of usable floor area require a Display Energy Certificate which must be reassessed annually.


Chairman…………………………………..

25 of 29


There are no requirements to set targets or improvements to energy consumption within the regulations.

While the principals around the regulations are sound in principal it has been argued that the problem with the Display Energy Certificates is the requirement for an annual assessment each year whether changes have been made to the building or not and the costs (£500-£700 per building assessed) provide little benefit to the organisation or to the public. In addition, there are fines for not displaying a certificate but there is no obligation to act on any findings.

NALC would appreciate further opinions on this issue from other councils to see how it impacts on the tier and to see whether it is an issue we need to take further. It is likely that this issue will predominantly affect some of the larger councils though not exclusively.
