Please bring to the meeting your copies of the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (Green Book) June 2021 and July 2021.
The Executive considered the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information (Green Book) June 2021 and July 2021. The Leader reported that the exception report, which highlighted where performance significantly differed from target, would be re-introduced to the front of future Green Books.
Regarding long stays in B&B accommodation, the Executive was informed that the figures had been skewed by single person households staying in the Woking Hotel through the Government’s Everyone In Initiative. It was noted that families in B&B accommodation were usually moved on by two weeks.
Following a question, Councillor Davis, Portfolio Holder for Waste and Recycling, provided an update on the difficulties facing the green waste collection. Councillor Davis assured the Executive that the Joint Waste Partnership was working together to do all it could to get the service operational again. It was noted that Officers were working with Surrey to make recycling centres more accessible to residents. Regarding HGV driver shortages, the Executive heard that retention packages were in place to retain staff. The physicality of the job was acknowledged, as well as the extra hours worked to catch-up on missed collections.
The Leader agreed to investigate the inclusion of future projections in terms of strategic property in future Green Books.
That the Performance and Financial Monitoring Information, June 2021 and July 2021, be received.
