The Director of Finance and Business Improvement introduced the 3rd quarter financial update, stating that whilst Covid-19 had contributed to a significant loss of income experienced by the Council, the Committee was projecting a favourable variance of £471,000.
It was highlighted that amendments had been proposed to crematorium charges following the decision that there should not have been increases to interment fees for residents of the Borough.
The Senior Business Analyst introduced the performance monitoring report, explaining that 8 of the 15 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) had missed their target mainly due to Covid-19. The KPI for Percentage of unauthorised encampments on Council owned land removed within 5 working days missed its target due to the Community Protection Team being unable to remove the encampment due to Covid-19 restrictions, but the site had been monitored for anti-social behaviour. Since the data was produced, the unauthorised encampment had moved from Council land.
Several reported cases of Covid-19 within the Depot Team affected the two KPIs related to fly-tipping. It was also highlighted that the Waste Team had experienced delays in receiving data, and so the report had captured data up until October 2020. However, the data which informed percentage of household waste sent for reuse, recycling and composting for November 2020 had been received and was 50.49%. It was stated that updated outcomes would be circulated when data for December 2020 was available.
It was highlighted that the KPIs relating to gas safety certificates and electrical safety certificates were missed due to contractors being refused entry to homes due to Covid-19 concerns. This had since been rectified. Although the KPI for the percentage of successful Relief Duty outcomes was missed, it was highlighted that the outcome was better than the national average.
In response to questions, the Waste Manager confirmed that results of the communications campaign regarding recyclable waste had not yet been evaluated.
