259 DECLARATIONS OF INTEREST
260 MAYORAL ANNOUNCEMENTS
1. The Mayor was delighted to attend the recent “Aiming High” event in
support of disabled young adults and children held at Bridgend Recreation
Centre. He thanked the officers in the Children‟s Directorate who had
worked hard to provide a very informative day for families and
2. The Mayor announced that the Civic Trust for Wales had presented
Bridgend County Borough Council with an award for its efforts to preserve
the architectural heritage of Bridgend Town Centre. The special award for
conservation and re-use recognises the restoration of Dunraven Place. To
date, more than £1.6 million had been invested in Phase 1 and the first
part of Phase 2 of the scheme. The Council was currently preparing to
apply to the Heritage Lottery Fund for further money to finish the second
phase in full. He thanked the Officers in the Communities Directorate for
their hard work on this important project.
3. The Mayor announced that he had met former land army girl and Bridgend
resident Joyce Collins recently and presented her with a medal to mark her
efforts in World War two. DEFRA had chosen to recognise her
contribution. The Mayor asked Members to invite their constituents who
were members of the land army and were interested in receiving a medal
to contact the Mayor.
4. The Mayor announced that the First Baptist Church in Louisiana had
visited the Borough during the summer and he had undertaken a return
visit where he had spent a week visiting churches and schools and had
attended lunches hosted by the Mayor. He informed Council that the
church intended to make a return visit to the borough in July 2010.
261 LEADER‟S REPORT
1. The Leader was extremely pleased to announce that he had sat behind
the wheel of a digger recently to mark the start of building work on the new
community resource centre at Waterton. The centre, when it opens in
2011 will offer a wide range of services for adults with learning difficulties.
He thanked all the officers who had worked so hard to prepare the site in
readiness for this important project.
2. The Leader announced that he had the pleasure of welcoming Welsh
Local Government Minister Dr Brian Gibbons to Bridgend County Borough
Council recently and to show him the excellent work provided by the
Assisted Recovery in the Community Service commonly known as ARC.
ARC provided help and support for adults with mental health issues and Dr
Gibbons was very impressed when he met a number of services users and
talked about the service which they receive. The ARC team currently
operated from the Ty‟r Ardd Centre in Sunnyside but would move shortly to
a new £2m Mental Health Centre in Bridgend Town Centre. He wished the
ARC team well in their new home.
3. The Leader was pleased to attend a recent event which looked at how Bridgend
County Borough Council might deal with climate change and energy shortages
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
in the next two decades. The event considered what actions which could be
taken now to ensure that essential services for residents were continued to be
provided. He thanked the authority‟s Sustainable Development Team for
organising the event.
4. The Leader congratulated the Trading Standards Team who had received yet
another award for their work. The Team was awarded a trophy for their
significant contribution to Consumer Advice and Education during the last year
and were praised for their ongoing commitments to a number of initiatives such
as the Validate Proof of Age Scheme. The Team was also commended for their
Consumer Advice Service and added that the officers do an extremely important
job in helping residents and the accolade was well deserved.
5. The Leader announced that for the second year running the Council had
entered a team in the Local Government Chronicle Challenge, a management
exercise which replicated a fictional management team in an English two tier
Council and some of the experiences and challenges they face. There were
forty three teams who had entered mainly from larger councils and Bridgend
was the only Welsh council represented. He stated that the team did very well
to finish ninth in the challenge, given that the team was at an obvious
disadvantage because of the variations between English and Welsh Local
Government. The team was captained by Gary Jones from the Cabinet
Committee Section and the team members were:-
Andrew Parry Jones - Physical Regeneration
Lawrence Darley - Scrutiny
Martin Morgans - ICT and Customer Contact
Mark Beauchamp - Pupil Services
Ceri Evans - Porthcawl Pavilion
The Team was observed and overseen by Gareth Moss - Corporate Director
Resources. All members of Council congratulated the team on their
262 QUESTIONS TO THE LEADER AND MEMBERS OF THE EXECUTIVE
Councillors E M Hughes, M C Wilkins and D A Unwin asked the following
questions to Members of the Executive.
Councillor E M Hughes to Cabinet Member - Wellbeing
What is being done in Bridgend County Borough to ensure that local people are
supported to live active and healthy lives either through the facilities that we
operate or through services within the community?
The „Better Health, Successful Sport‟ strategic review of sport and recreation in
the County Borough, will clarify what facilities and services are most appropriate
to address the health related challenges of modern living and also what is
required to preserve or enhance the proud sporting tradition of Bridgend County
Borough. Over 90% of those consulted on draft plans are in agreement with the
proposed way forward.
Recent investments into our leisure buildings have seen the opening of the
Ynysawdre Pool and Fitness Centre (£6 million plus), the installation of the Family
Changing Village at Bridgend Recreation Centre (£310,000) and the installation of
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
the Technogym fitness equipment and industry leading Wellness system at
Bridgend, Ynysawdre and Maesteg (£500,000 plus).
Expanding the principle of making our schools available to the public beyond the
school day will be realised through the development of the new Archbishop
McGrath school project in Brackla, which will feature sports hall, all weather sports
areas, dance studio and use of playing fields.
Our partnership with Sports Council for Wales will support investment into children
and young people of over £350,000 per annum through primary and secondary
school initiatives of the National PE and School Sport programme.
The principle of improving health by providing free holiday time swimming for
young people and regular free access for the over 60‟s will continue to be
supported with £160,000 of Welsh Assembly funding.
Over 1200 people with poor health status will be supported by the National
Exercise Referral scheme as a more cost effective intervention than medication or
hospital attendance. Further support from the Local Health Board will enable a
mobile service to evolve.
Over 3800 people from low-income backgrounds have been supported via the
„Access to Leisure‟ scheme to increase their levels of physical activity. A
consultation exercise has highlighted that, 83% have identified a benefit to health
and 89% recognise a change to family lifestyle. The Cabinet Member informed
Council that a scheme was being run at present at Ynysawdre Pool for people
with pulmonary problems who had been referred to the centre by the Hospital as
part of their rehabilitation.
Over 70% of local people who have membership of the Bridge Card scheme are
benefitting from concessionary pricing to remove barriers to taking part in health
related sport and activity. The scheme provides specific support to groups
including looked after children, „at risk‟ young people etc.
An average of 80 community clubs or voluntary sector groups are supported by
the Community Chest scheme with over £55,000 per annum invested into sport
and physical activity.
In a supplementary question Councillor Green asked whether the access to the
leisure scheme would continue to be supported by the new Local Health Board.
The Corporate Director - Wellbeing advised that the new Local Health Board had
stopped providing funding for the scheme but the Council had continued its
In a further supplementary question Councillor Smith asked whether there were
any plans to close the swimming pool facility at Maesteg. The Cabinet Member -
Wellbeing advised that there were no plans to close Maesteg Swimming Pool and
options were being looked at for its continued use.
Councillor M C Wilkins to Cabinet Member - Children and Young People
Both myself, as Borough Councillor for the Pen-y-Fai Ward and parents of
children attending Pen-y-Fai Church in Wales School are frustrated by another
delay reported in the recent public meeting. As a new public enquiry date has
been set for after Christmas, is the money provided by the Welsh Assembly still
being held in the coffers of Bridgend County Borough Council or are other wards
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
benefiting from the money, due to the delay of building this school and how many
more years does Pen-y-Fai have to endure sending their children to a decaying
temporary structured school?
The circumstances leading up to and relating to the adjournment of the Public
Inquiry was fully explained and debated during a two hour public meeting to which
Councillor Wilkins has referred. That meeting was attended by Carwyn Jones AM,
Cllr Alana Davies, Cabinet Member - Children and Young People, the School
Governors, the Headteacher, a large number of the parents and two officers
representing the Corporate Director Children and the Legal Department.
It was explained in detail at the public meeting that the adjournment of the Public
Inquiry was solely due to the fact that Mr Boland was being admitted to hospital
for treatment to a medical condition. The Inspector appointed to hear the case
considered that Mr Boland was an expert witness and his participation at the
Inquiry was necessary. The Council raised objections to the proposed
adjournment but the Inspector maintained his ruling.
The Public Inquiry is now adjourned to 2 February 2010 and will be held over 2
days. These were the first dates that all necessary parties were able to attend.
Officers fully share the publics and Members sense of frustration and annoyance.
However, the administration of the Public Inquiry is not something that the Council
is able to control.
Funding is in place for the construction of the school, although the source is no
longer the Welsh Assembly Government. The funding allocated to the school
from the Welsh Assembly Government‟s School Building Improvement Grant had
to be spent within a specified time limit and to avoid the loss of this funding to the
authority, agreement was received to vire the funds to other projects. This has
enabled the release of council funding for the new Pen-y-Fai Primary school. This
funding transfer has not reduced the amount of funding available for the scheme.
Again this was all explained at the public meeting
Until the outcome of the Public Inquiry is known, it is difficult to predict when the
new school will be ready for occupation. However, everything possible is being
done to ensure that the scheme can be progressed swiftly if, following the Public
Inquiry, the Minister grants the necessary Compulsory Purchase Orders.
In a supplementary question Councillor Wilkins asked the Cabinet Member
Children and Young People what would happen to the new build school at Pen y
Fai should the minister following the public inquiry not grant the necessary
compulsory purchase orders and whether there were any contingency plans. The
Cabinet Member - Children and Young People advised that she hoped that the
Minister was mindful to grant the necessary compulsory purchase orders and
confirmed that the Council did not have any contingency plans for alternative sites
for the school.
Councillor D A Unwin to the Deputy Leader
Given that in the last financial year, it was necessary for BCBC Environmental
Health officers to issue 554 written warnings and 55 Hygiene Improvement
Notices to a range of the 1209 food premises in BCBC subject to inspection, how
many of those 1209 premises are inspected at least once every year and given
that in the wake of the Pennington Inquiry on the e.coli incident, a further three
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
officers are being appointed, is this still felt sufficient to deal adequately with the
inspection regime, this most important of public health services?
We currently have at least 216 premises that are due to be inspected at least
once every year. This includes 26 A category premises and 190 category B
premises. The enforcement of the Food Safety Act 1909, the Food Hygiene
(Wales) Regulations 2006 and other relevant regulations are governed through a
code of practice which also specifies the risk assessment scheme used to assess
the risk associated with each food business and determine its priority for
The number of premises liable for high risk inspection will vary as new businesses
open and old businesses close, the aim is to inspect as many of the new
businesses as possible especially where they may be considered high risk. The
section also has to respond to food complaints and take appropriate enforcement
action where necessary.
Recent reports to Cabinet and Scrutiny recommended the appointment of an
additional three staff based on the already additional demands placed on the
service following the outbreak which had meant diverting resources away from
other front line services and the ability to respond to the recommendations relating
to the inspection of food premises.
There is currently an ongoing debate amongst other environmental health
professionals as to the level of additional resources required, until this has been
resolved and further guidance and advice is available from other regulators the
final resource implications cannot be finalised. That stated it was felt that Bridgend
should proceed as a matter of urgency in order to respond as effectively as
possible, taking into account the implications of the various recommendations.
The implications of the recommendations go beyond just inspection but will create
demands on officer time, there is considerable focus on businesses understanding
and complying with the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP)
system. Not only will this need to be enforced and inspected thoroughly at each
inspection, businesses are liable to need more advice and training on this.
Because of the recommendations and the need to ensure that officers are not
misled by food operators high risk premises especially will require inspection by
more than one officer at a time especially as there is also a call for a more audit
based approach to inspections these are likely to take more officer time.
Development of better use of IT and record keeping is also important and again
officers will have to spend more time ensuring they keep there file notes and
inspection history notes as detailed as possible, including records of discussions
with employees as recommended. This is in addition to ensuring that officers keep
an up to date knowledge of any changes to legislation, food operating procedures
The true extent of the demands on the service remains to be seen as it is also
important that the sections performance indicators are also met where possible
and that there is a continuous improvement and development of the department.
The food section is vitally important and aims to ensure that such incidents do not
occur but there are other front line services such as health and safety which have
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
also been affected by the impact of the inquiry and it is therefore vitally important
that other areas are also not detrimentally affected as well.
263 GAMBLING ACT 2005 : POLICY REVIEW : STATEMENT OF LICENSING
PRINCIPLES 2010 - 2013
The Deputy Leader sought the approval of Council of the Authority‟s Statement of
Licensing Principles for gambling premises for the period 2010 - 2013. Cabinet at
its meeting on the 6 October 2009 resolved to note and endorse the report to
Council in respect of proposed amendments to the Statement of Licensing
Principles as detailed in Appendix A to the report. Cabinet also recommended
that Council maintain its existing policy in respect of the issue of casino premises
The Council as the Licensing Authority was required to publish on a three year
basis the Statement of Licensing Principles governing the regulation and decision
making process relating to gambling premises. The current Statement of
Licensing Premises, published with effect from the 3 January 2007 was due for
renewal. Before publishing a new statement, for the next three year period, the
Council must undertake a statutory consultation process. The report outlined the
response to the consultation and made recommendations for revisions to the
Statement. The consultation process involved the statutory consultees including
those persons representing the interests of gambling businesses and those likely
to be affected by gambling premises. Consultees were invited to comment upon
any aspects of the proposed revision and a list of consultees was shown within
the Draft Statement of Licensing Principles attached as Appendix A to the report.
The Statement of Licensing Principles for the next three year period incorporated
subsequent changes to legislation and the revised guidance issued by the
Gambling Commission in May 2009. Two new sections had been included which
set out the Authority‟s proposed policy for issuing gaming machine and prize
gaming permits. Consultation responses had been received from the William Hill
Organisation Ltd relating to the wording of the draft statement in respect of
unfinished premises. It was therefore recommended that Paragraphs 2.3.2 to
2.3.4 be amended as shown in italics at Paragraphs 2.3.2 and 2.3.3 of Appendix
A. A response had also been received from the Safeguarding Manager,
Children‟s Directorate who had responded by way of updated details from the
body which is to advise the Licensing Authority on the protection of children from
harm. The response highlighted the need to revise Paragraph 2.8.1 of the policy
to reflect the latest guidance from the Commission relating to the access by
children to gaming establishments, for which it was recommended that an
amendment be made accordingly to the Statement.
RESOLVED: That Council:-
(1) Take no further action and retain the Policy Statement set
out in Paragraph 1.16 of the Policy attached at Appendix A
to the report.
(2) Note that no representations had been received on new
casino premises licences but that should any further
legislative amendments occur, or if representations are
received on this matter, Council had the option to review
this aspect of the Policy.
(3) Approve the Statement of Licensing Principles attached at
Appendix A to the report to include the revision to
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
Paragraph 1.16 referred to above together with the
amendments highlighted in Paragraph 1.6, 2.3.2, 2.3.3 and
2.8.1 of the Policy Statement.
(4) Authorise the Assistant Chief Executive Legal and
Regulatory Services be authorised to make the necessary
arrangement for amending and publishing the approved
policy document including the giving of the Statutory Public
Notice for publication.
264 DESIGNATED PUBLIC PLACES ORDER, PENCOED
The Deputy Leader reported that Cabinet at its meeting of 6 October 2009
received a report on a proposal to establish an alcohol control area for Pencoed
and recommended that Council adopt a Designated Public Place Order (DPPO)
for Pencoed, the extent of which was shown marked on the plan at Appendix B to
The Deputy Leader explained that the evidence required for the making of a
DPPO was that there was an alcohol related nuisance or annoyance to the public
occurring in the proposed area, which was supported in a preliminary report from
the South Wales Police detailing where alcohol related anti-social behaviour and
nuisance were occurring. A Task and Finish Group had been established to
consider a wider boundary which included the whole of Pencoed community which
was the subject of consultation. The responses to the consultation indicated
support for the proposal in order to tackle alcohol related anti social behaviour and
nuisance. One response outlined the positive benefits of the previous DPPO in
Bridgend Town Centre since its implementation last December. A further
response indicated that incidents of crime and disorder had been reported to
police and communities together (PACT) meetings in the area. The South Wales
Police sector Inspector who had responsibility for neighbourhood policing for the
town of Pencoed also supported the proposal. The South Wales Police had also
submitted a plan proposing an extension to the Designated Public Places Order.
This had the effect of incorporating areas of land immediately adjacent to the
A473 east of the town and an area of land to the south west of the town. The
Task and Finish Group recommended that the order cover an area equivalent to
the boundary of the Pencoed Settlement. In accordance with Home Office
guidelines, an assessment had been made of the likelihood that this problem will
continue unless these powers are adopted. The Police had supplied the initial
evidence of alcohol related problems and support the implementation of the Order
as a measure to reduce future alcohol related crime, disorder and nuisance. In
conclusion, on the basis of the evidence supplied, the implementation of a DPPO
would be a proportionate response to address the problems being experienced in
the Pencoed area. The proposed date for the coming into force of the Designated
Public Places Order is December 2009, the date to be confirmed subject to final
public notice of the proposal and erection of signeage.
Members welcomed the report on the proposed DPPO and comended Officers of
the Authority the Community Safety Partnership and law enforcement agencies on
their efforts in tackling on-street drinking and under-age drinking which was
supported by the DPPO.
RESOLVED: That Council:-
(1) Approve the making of the Alcohol Consumption in
Designated Public Places for the area of Pencoed Order
Number 1 2009, and set out in Appendix D to the report to
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
encompass the area marked on the plan at Appendix C,
(2) Request the Community Safety Partnership to undertake
the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the
Order as outlined in this report, and report back after six
months and yearly thereafter.
265 SIX MONTH REVIEW OF THE CHANGES TO DELEGATED POWER
ARRANGEMENTS FOR DETERMINING PLANNING APPLICATIONS
The Group Manager – Development reported that the Development Control
Committee at its meeting on the 22 October 2009 considered a report on the
review of the Delegated Power arrangements and recommended that the existing
Delegated Powers were considered to be working satisfactorily and a further
review be submitted to Council for consideration in twelve months time. He
advised Members that the Development Control Committee and Council had
earlier this year agreed changes to the delegated power arrangements for
determining certain planning applications. It was agreed by Council that a review
of how the revised system was working would be undertaken within six months.
He outlined the relevant delegated powers.
He reported that whilst the arrangements are relatively new, this had coincided
with other changes implemented by the Development Control Committee and
Development Department that all have contributed to a significant improvement in
recent performance in the processing of planning applications. Since the change
earlier this year the proportion of planning applications dealt with under delegated
powers had increased to 82.8% to 85.3%. There was likely to be some small
further improvements to the percentage figure of applications determined under
He also advised that a questionnaire had been circulated to all Members of the
Council to ascertain whether they had experienced any problems with the revised
delegated arrangements for planning applications and whether they wished the
arrangements improved and if so how. All the replies received indicated that
Members were content with the arrangements but on a separate procedural
matter, one Member expressed the view that very controversial applications be
the subject of a separate meeting of the Development Control Committee. Whilst
the change to the delegated arrangements may have appeared relatively modest,
there was already an observable improvement which is helping to further increase
Bridgend‟s planning performance. It also appeared that Members were generally
satisfied by the arrangements that were in place.
RESOLVED: That the report be accepted and a further review on
Delegated Powers be submitted to Council for consideration
in twelve months time.
266 DEPARTURE PLANNING APPLICATION
The Group Manager - Development reported that the Development Control
Committee at its meeting on the 22 October 2009 had considered planning
application P/09/376/FUL as a departure from the Development Plan the
Development Control Committee were not disposed to refuse. The application
had been referred to Council requesting that it resolve to grant the application.
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
He reported that the application was to convert listed buildings to office use,
demolish shed and replace with office, new office unit and associated works‟ at
land at Merthyr Mawr House, Merthyr Mawr, Bridgend.
He considered that the proposal represented a development that had been made
to a very high standard, both in design and in supporting documents which had
provided reasonable and justified arguments in favour of the development. The
very special circumstances of the site and particularly the restoration and return to
use of three listed buildings as part of a group of listed buildings were judged to be
convincing material considerations to set against the normal policy presumption
against development in the countryside and the objection raised by the Group
Manager for Transportation and Engineering (Highways). The commercial use
proposed would complement the adjoining land use. It was considered to be the
most appropriate means of securing a sustainable future for the listed buildings. It
contributed to the viability of the whole estate and to the preservation and
enhancement of the conservation area and the built and historic heritage of the
locality. The proposal would also represent a potential exemplar development
within Bridgend County Borough Council to the benefit of the architectural and
economic fabric of the area.
RESOLVED: That Council approve planning application P/09/376/FUL,
subject to the conditions contained in the report.
267 REVISED INVESTMENT STRATEGY 2009/10
The Section 151 Officer sought approval of the proposed changes to the
Investment Strategy for 2009/10. The original Investment Strategy was
incorporated in the Treasury Policy Statement 2009/10 which was approved by
Council on the 18 February 2009.
He stated that the Council‟s Treasury Management activities were regulated by
the Local Government Act 2003 which provided the powers to borrow and invest
as well as providing controls and limits on this activity. In accordance with
legislation, the Council was required to undertake any borrowing activity with
regard to the CIPFA Prudential Code for Capital Finance in Local Authorities and
to operate the overall treasury function with regard to the CIPFA Code of Practice
for Treasury Management in the Public Services. The Code was formally adopted
by the Council in April 2004 and a primary requirement of the Code is the
formulation and agreement by Council of a Treasury Policy Statement, which set
out the Council‟s and Chief Financial Officer‟s responsibilities, delegation and
reporting arrangements. CIPFA‟s Treasury Management Panel had recently
sought comments on the revision of the Treasury Management Code. One
proposal was that there is a mid year review of the Treasury Policy Statement as
part of the Treasury Management Strategy.
The Section 151 Officer detailed the reasons for a revised Investment Strategy
2009/10 which were attributed to the global credit crunch. The proposed revisions
to the Investment Strategy 2009/10 were as follows:-
The Non- Specified Investment limit to be increased from £15m to £20m
(applicable to sections 4.4 and 4.11)
Deposits with Building Societies in the top twenty ranked by value, the
maximum period of investment will be increased from six months to 364
days (section 4.5)
COUNCIL - 4 NOVEMBER 2009
Short term investments with building societies without a F1 or P1 short
term credit rating - category limit to be increased from £5m to £10m
Non-specified investments will only be entered into with prior advice from
the Authority‟s Treasury Management Consultant (Sterling) - to be
amended so that this only applies to investments longer than six months
An extract of the revised Investment Strategy 2009/10 which outlined the
proposed changes which were shown in Appendix B to the report.
The Section 151 Officer responded to questions from Members in relation to the
revisions to the Investment Strategy.
RESOLVED: That Council approve the changes to the Investment
Strategy 2009/10 as endorsed by Cabinet on 6 October
268 INFORMATION REPORTS AND MINUTES FOR NOTING
