·         Members were advised that the overall picture was positive. In terms of domestic refuse and recycling there was a small overspend due to extra resources being put into place and therefore contributing to costs.  The performance in this area to date was excellent but the winter months were still to come.

·         Members asked about the recent flooding and the impact that this had had.  In response, Members were advised that Totally Local Company were the first port of call when there was a flood.  The cost of this is within the budget across the piece and so was not listed as a separate item.

·         Members of the Committee wished to record that they were very pleased with the response to the flooding.

·         The support from the highways capital team at Stockport MBC was proving to be very helpful.

 

RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
