14/02/2024 - Seamer Road Park and Ride, Scarborough, YO12 4DT ref: 4779    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Assistant Director - Property, Procurement & Commercial

Decision published: 14/02/2024

Effective from: 14/02/2024

Decision:

1.Purpose of Decision Record
To record the decision of KERRY METCALFE to take enforcement action under the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 in accordance with her delegated powers contained within the Council’s Constitution.
2.Background and Action to date
On Wednesday 31st January 2024 NYC was notified that up to eleven unauthorised caravans had parked on Seamer Road Park and Ride site. A site visit and welfare needs assessments have been carried out on Saturday 3rd February 2024 by CEA Limited. This has established that there may be one welfare concern on site relating to a lady who is seven months pregnant – health care support has been offered by CEA Limited and was refused. No other welfare needs were identified.
Where a welfare need is present NYC’s policy states the following:
‘The Council will seek to identify any relevant welfare needs of the site occupiers. Where needs are identified the Council will try to assist or refer the matter to the relevant service or agency.
Where welfare needs are identified the case will be assessed on its own merits and any appropriate occupation period agreed. The situation will be monitored and the occupation period will be extended as the Council deems necessary.’
As the individual with a welfare need has refused health care support. It is considered that the eviction should proceed as planned in accordance with the Policy.
Seamer Road Park and Ride is currently closed for the winter, but it should become operational in advance of Easter. Failure to take swift action with the eviction may result in problems re-opening the site at the planned time due to clear-up and repairs to the site once vacated.
3.Legal
The Council has a power under s77 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 to give a direction to leave land to people residing in vehicles, including caravans on land forming part of a highway, other unoccupied land or occupied land on which there are residing without the occupier’s consent.
The Council may give a direction that those persons and any others with them are to leave the land and remove the vehicles and any other property they have with them on the land.
If a person knowing that a direction under s77(1) has been given which applies to him / her –
(a)Fails, as soon as practicable, to leave the land or remove from the land any vehicle or other property which is the subject of the direction, or
(b)Having removed any such vehicle or property again enters the land with a vehicle within the period of 3 months being with the day on which the direction was given,
commits an officer and is liable upon summary conviction to a fine.
Then the Council may apply to the Magistrates Court for an order under S78 requiring the removal of any vehicle or other property which is present on the land and any persons residing in it.
4.Other
A welfare needs assessment was conducted on 3rd February 2024. Having regard to the Human Rights 1998 and Equality Act 2010 in particular in regard to the occupiers needs and welfare it would be proportionate when balancing individual needs against the wider public interest having regard to the unacceptable location of the unauthorised encampment to serve a direction under s77 for the removal of the vehicle(s) and person(s) from the site. Given that the location is unacceptable, relevant authorities are aware of the welfare needs on site and an appropriate occupation period has been afforded to the families, it is now in line with the Authorities Policy to serve notice without delay.
Failure to have the ability to open the Park and Ride site could create reputational damage to the Authority and have an impact on the wider tourist economy of the local area.
5.Recommendation
Therefore, I Kerry Metcalfe authorise action to be taken under Sections 77 and 78 Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 to secure the removal of those vehicles or other property and any persons residing in it from Seamer Road Park and Ride site in order to prevent trespass and protect the Council’s interests and enable the Council to continue to carry out its functions on the site.

15/01/2024 - Accelerating Reform Fund for Adult Social Care ref: 4541    Recommendations Approved

To agree to submit an Expression of Interest (Grant Application) for the Accelerating Reform Fund

Decision Maker: Assistant Director - Resources (HAS)

Decision published: 15/01/2024

Effective from: 23/01/2024

Decision:

Approval has been given to submit an Expression of Interest for the Accelerating Reform Fund for Adult Social Care.

This is for up to £42.6m nationally for local authorities working in partnership with other local authorities within an Integrated Care System. The funding will be over two years to support innovation in social care, growing and accelerating projects with a focus on supporting unpaid carers.

A consortium has been formed with Humber and North Yorkshire and other local authorities with North East Lincs as the lead authority. The organisations have worked together to look at the priorities outlined in the guidance and selected two projects. The first being the provision of shared lives and the second to support unpaid carers to have short breaks. If successful, the consortium will receive £300k. NE Lincs will project manage and administer the fund. Top up funding is intended to cover some programme costs. The amount of funding which North Yorkshire Council will receive is likely to be around £300k over two years. This is non recurrent funding.

Following recent changes to the Financial Procedure Rules, the Executive Member Finance has also been consulted on the funding submission.
