A representative of the Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) providing an update on the creation of the Neighbourhoods Team and outlining the duties of the Officers within it.

 

Officers also reported on a proposal to hold a Neighbourhood Day of Action in each area of the Borough.

 

The following comments were made/issues raised:-

 

·         The purpose of the changes was to give the area of work more of a neighbourhood focus and increase the resilience of the team.  It was clarified that the proposals were financially neutral.

·         Brinnington and Central Ward Councillors requested that the Ward be split into two for the purposes of the Neighbourhood Day of Action, with one event in Brinnington and one in the town centre.

·         The Council needed to publicise its responses to issues through its social media channels. Members were advised that the Neighbourhoods Team would have its own twitter account and utilise the Council’s website to publicise issues.

·         The new structure would mean a change of job role for a number of staff who would require training as a result. It was important that the changes were embraced by Officers and that they felt connected to the area of the borough for which they were responsible.

·         The regular highways meetings between Ward Councillors and Officers worked well so it was hoped that the proposed regular meetings with the Neighbourhoods Team would be equally productive.

 

RESOLVED – (1) That the report be noted.

 

(2) That Mark Calderbank be thanked for the work he undertook as the former Public Realm Officer for the Central Stockport area.
