On the agenda at Council, 13 December

by Gemma Melling

Knowsley’s full Council meeting takes place on Wednesday, 13 December 2017 at 4pm.

The future of parks and green spaces will not be on the agenda at this meeting

There are no items on the agenda at Council in relation to the recent decision of Cabinet regarding the ‘Shaping a New Future for Knowsley’s Parks report’. This is now subject to a call-in process, and is due to be considered at a meeting of the Sustainable Boroughs Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday 19 December. Therefore, in order to not pre-empt or unduly influence the work of the Scrutiny Committee, questions relating to this report will not be considered at the Council meeting, from either elected members or members of the public, in line with the Council’s Constitution.

The items that are up for consideration at the meeting are as follows:

Community Safety Plan 2017-2020

Council will be asked to endorse Knowsley’s Community Safety Plan for 2017-2020 – a multi-agency plan outlining what priorities will be addressed and how.  The plan has been developed in consultation with the local community and partners.  The priorities for 2017-2020 are domestic abuse, addressing anti-social behaviour (including vehicle misuse), protecting vulnerable victims, exploitation of children, serious and organised crime and supporting offenders to change their behaviour.

Notices of Motion

Two notices of motions will also be considered.

Firstly, Councillor Christina O’Hare will propose a notice of motion seeking cross-party support for increased resources for support services for victims of violence against women and girls, along with introducing a statutory requirement for partner agencies to participate in Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences and provide appropriate funding to support the effective implementation and dissemination of findings of Domestic Homicide Reviews.

The second Notice of Motion is proposed by Cllr Andy Moorhead seeking support for the union’s campaign for those employed by ISS Facilities Management Limited at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust – many of whom of Knowsley residents – around access to a fair and reasonable sick pay scheme.
