Minutes:

80.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that provided an update on the City Environment Modernisation Programme, provided updates relating to several Cityclean service areas and sought approval to changes to the issuing of Flyering licenses across Brighton & Hove.

 

80.2      In response to a question from Councillor Fowler, the Head of Business Support & Projects explained that it was true that new markets had not been found for the recycling of the inner linings of some drink cartons however, the consultation was undertaken by central government and the council had given feedback to that end under that process.

 

80.3      In response to questions from Councillor Brown, the Head of Business Support & Projects confirmed that advice on contamination of recycling would be provided in the new information leaflets sent to residents. Progress on graffiti removal had been hindered by staff changes however, a letter would be sent in the near future to statutory undertakers updating them on updated policies on graffiti removal. In relation to staff agency costs during the pandemic, the Assistant Director, City Environment stated that this figure wasn’t to hand but could be provided in writing after the meeting.

 

80.4      In response to questions from Councillor Appich, the Head of Business Support & Projects clarified that data on the review of communal bin collection was currently being gathered for the remaining wards and officers would be liaising with ward councillors, staff and unions on the findings in the near future The Head of Business Support & Projects explained that the allocation of further funding at Budget Council for flytipping prevention was relatively recent and officers were currently reviewing how best that funding could be allocation and would update Members in due course. Further, the Head of Business Support & Projects acknowledged that the current government consultation on food waste may lead to a directive mandating a collection service and that decision may come before the council’s own feasibility study had been finalised.
