Questions Under Standing Order 23 pdf icon PDF 47 KB

To receive questions from Councillors in accordance with the requirements of Standing Order 23.4(a).

Minutes:

Questions received under Standing Order 23 and their related responses are set out below:

 

Question 1 from Councillor Davis to Councillor Wilson

 

With Reference to Nitrate Neutrality... If the UK leaves the EU on 31st October...Will this Council and Builders in the Borough still be bound by the Dutch Court Ruling on Nitrate Neutrality?

 

Response: The need to undertake Habitats Regulations Assessment, including assessing the impact on water quality, comes from the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations. These are UK regulations. It has been confirmed verbally and through draft regulations that Government do not intend to weaken the environmental standards in the Habitats Regulations.

 

 

Question 2 from Councillor Davis to Councillor Bowerman

 

I find the Havant Council website difficult to use, even frustrating to find what you are looking for... Could you put the "Customer Services" Telephone number on the front page? 

 

In Councillor’s Bowerman’s absence, a written reply to be provided after the meeting.

 

Question 3 from Councillor Davis to Councillor Bowerman

 

Reference the Customer Services Telephone number... It has a number of menu's you have to go through before getting to the one you think is the correct one. Are they all necessary? Could they be reduced?

 

In Councillor’s Bowerman’s absence, a written reply to be provided after the meeting.

 

Question 4 from Councillor Davis to Councillor Bowerman

 

The Customer Services auto system did not recognise "Universal Credit". Could this be added to the recognition system and a redirect to the DWP telephone/website added?

 

In Councillor’s Bowerman’s absence, a written reply to be provided after the meeting.

 

Question 5 from Councillor Francis to Councillor Pike

 

With the increasing need for us to address the need for Havant to play its part by making reductions in our emissions of C02, how are we planning to be able to accelerate our programme? Are there even more ambitious projects such as solar farms or wind turbines to produce more of our own electricity?

 

Question 6 from Councillor Francis to Councillor Pike

 

Could you tell us more about retrofit installations and the publicity campaign to encourage residents to save energy, carbon and money through the Energy Company Obligation. (Please tell us what it is.)

 

Response:  If a resident is on a low income, but their home is high cost, or if the resident has certain health conditions which mean they are vulnerable to living in a cold home. Retrofit Partners make applications to HBC, and we approve the work. The Retrofit partner applies directly to the obligated energy company. All money flows from the obligated energy company to the installer who undertakes the work. There are plans to publicize this activity once all existing retrofit partners have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding which covers areas like safeguarding, data protection, GDPR and industry standards. A short paper describing the retrofit can be provided if required.

 

The short explanation of how funding for retrofit measures are delivered through the Energy Company Obligation are broadly in line with criteria in a  ...  view the full minutes text for item 23.
