Appendix A

LENGTHMAN’S REPORT – AUGUST 2020 

Very busy month with litter collection and bin emptying due to the school holidays and exceptional use of the play equipment areas. Grass cutting has been virtually non-existent this month as it has been so very dry. However, with the recent rain growth has now come back with a vengeance. Hedge cutting is in full swing with just a couple left to do. We have taken delivery of the NO PARKING sign and line paint. These will be installed next month. The buildings and equipment are all in good order.

REPORT TO BLEWBURY PARISH COUNCIL SEPTEMBER 2020

FROM CLLR MIKE FOX-DAVIES

Oxfordshire update

  • In the 7 days up to 28 August, there has been a total of 63 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Oxfordshire, this is a decrease from 88 cases in the previous week.
  • This is equivalent to a weekly rate of new cases of 9.1 per 100,000 residents.
  • In Oxford, the number of confirmed case was 23, down from 41.
  • The weekly rate for Oxford currently stands at 15.1 cases per 100,000 population. The city is now at yellow alert status, down from amber the previous week. This means coronavirus is still circulating and remains a risk.
Cases of coronavirus by district
Area name Total cases Cases in 7 days up to 28/8/2020 Weekly rate per 100,000 population Weekly rate alert status
Cherwell 751 7 4.7 dark green
Oxford 1020 23 15.1 yellow

Vale of White Horse 534 17 12.5 light green
West Oxfordshire 564 7 6.3 light green
Oxfordshire 3,519 63 9.1 light green

 

Data correct as at 5pm on 1 September. It is important to note data is constantly being updated, so the picture is dynamic and can change quickly.

Welcoming children back to school safely

The new academic year has almost arrived, and our Learning & School Improvement team have been working closely with schools and colleges to make sure that all children are welcomed back safely. Risk assessments have been carried out and hygiene measures are in place across all educational settings, and all educational providers are following Department for Education, Public Health England and County Council guidance.

We recognise that some parents may feel anxious, particularly in light of the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Oxford. We have therefore written to parents and carers across Oxfordshire to reassure them about the preparations that have taken place for the safe return of children. 94% of schools in Oxfordshire have remained open since the start of lockdown and we have not seen any significant outbreaks during this time. Moreover, research by Public Health England shows that coronavirus outbreaks and infections in schools and early years settings are very rare. Out of more than 1 million children attending pre-school and primary school in June, just 70 children were affected.

For those children who are entitled to home to school transport, the OCC Transport Recovery Group has liaised with schools to identify a safe service. This has included a total of 40 additional routes to ensure children from more than one school do not travel together.

Independent report on different options for local government structures

In July, Oxfordshire County Council and Cherwell District Council jointly commission a piece of work to look at the various options for local government structures. This work is in advance of the anticipated Government Devolution and Local Recovery White Paper, which is due in the Autumn.

Independent experts PwC were asked to undertake the work and their initial high-level appraisal has now been published. The report does not seek to make recommendations but is designed to open positive conversations about how we can work more closely with all local authorities across Oxfordshire to achieve the best outcome for residents. More information and the full report can be found here.

Active Travel

Part of our work to enable Oxfordshire’s recovery from coronavirus has been to support a shift to walking and cycling so people are able to get around safely and sustainably as lockdown restrictions are eased. This is being partly funded by the Department for Transport through the Emergency Active Travel Fund.

Active travel tranche 1 :   continues to be delivered on time and projects will be completed in August as intended/required

Active travel tranche 2 :   bid was submitted by deadline 7th August, and we expect the DfT decision about mid-September.    Depending upon the funding granted we will then proceed to necessary consultations

DfT criteria and timetable which led to selection of projects mainly from LCWIP programme in Ox City, though there is a major project proposed for Witney and one for Bicester.

Coronavirus Update and Community Support

COVID-19 Community Support Hub

Whilst we don’t know how long the UK’s response to and recovery from COVID-19 will take, we do know it’s likely to be some time. One of the roles of the Community Hub when it was first set up was to help provide vital support to shielded residents (along with others who also need support), and even though the guidelines for those shielding has changed, we want all of our residents to know we’re still here to provide support and advice. The hours have changed due to demand, so it’s no longer open over the weekends and now reflects standard office hours of Monday to Thursday 8.30-5pm and Fridays 8.30-4.30pm. A summary of the number of COVID-19 cases across Oxfordshire, broken down to district level, is available on the following website and will be updated on a weekly basis each Wednesday: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/stopthespread.

To contact the Community Support Team:

call: 01235 422 600 Monday to Thursday 8.30-5pm and Fridays 8.30-4.30pm

email: communitysupport@southandvale.gov.uk.

Remember, for the most up-to-date coronavirus information relating to district council support and any changes to services, please take a look at the dedicated Vale webpage for updates: www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/covid19

New funding available for volunteer groups and organisations to help vulnerable residents affected by Covid-19

Voluntary and community sector groups in South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse can apply for a share of nearly £90,000 to help people affected by Covid-19 in the districts. The Vale of White Horse District Council has £43,077 to provide funds for voluntary and community sector projects that are delivering essential services to vulnerable residents in the districts who are struggling to afford food and other essential provisions as a result of COVID-19. Voluntary groups and organisations can now apply for grants of up to £5,000 to go towards:

  • projects directly helping vulnerable people affected by the effects of COVID-19, such as providing access to food and other essentials e.g. toiletries;
  • existing schemes supporting people struggling to afford food and other essentials, and where the need is greatest;
  • projects advising and providing information to people to help them access longer term support they might need, such as benefits;
  • projects that provide targeted support in areas of greatest need and deprivation, including rural areas.

Town and Parish Councils who are collaborating with un-constituted third-party groups e.g. COVID-19 community response groups, mutual aid groups will also be eligible to apply. The scheme is now open, and applications will be assessed on a rolling basis. The first deadline for applications is Midnight on Tuesday 15 September 2020. Further rounds will be assessed every two weeks thereafter, and the scheme will remain open until the funds are spent, so early applications are encouraged. We anticipate that funds will be spent by 31 October 2020. To apply, please read the application guidance notes before completing the online form which you can find here:

http://www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/services-and-advice/community-advice-and-support/grants . If you require any further information or have any queries, please contact the Community Connector Team at communityconnectors@southandvale.gov.uk

Climate and Environment

Harwell Cycling Update – B4493 Proposed Roundabout Design

We have been very encouraged to see how so many residents have engaged with this opportunity to proactively push for the changes in cycling infrastructure that you would like to see. We would like to thank all of the residents from Harwell and the surrounding area who have contacted us recently regarding the proposed design of the B4493 roundabout between Harwell and Didcot, as part of the plans for the Valley Park development. We acknowledge the concerns of residents regarding the accessibility of this roundabout for cyclists, who would have to divert a long way down the adjacent roads in order to safely cross the roundabout. It is clear this design needs to be reviewed and we can assure residents that we are currently raising this issue with the relevant decision-makers at all levels of local government (including recently meeting with our MP to discuss this and other issues around Valley Park).

We brought these examples of much-needed changes in cycling infrastructure in Harwell to the latest Vale full Council meeting in July. This formed part of the debate on a motion on active travel post-COVID, which was seconded by Hayleigh, and successfully passed. Although we have already been discussing the issues around cycling with our county councillor at every opportunity, this motion empowers the Vale to continue to put pressure on the County Council and to keep active travel as a key priority in future projects and plans. The video of the July council meeting, which was the first one to be held virtually, is available to watch online (the Active Travel motion begins at 1:37:40): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKUm1nUEf04

Cycle September

Staff and councillors at the Vale are taking part in Cycle September – a global event with a friendly competitive element, to help more people realise the benefits of riding a bike. We know that there are many keen cyclists among you so we thought that you might like to get involved as well, and encourage others to do the same. Throughout the month you can earn points by riding and encouraging others to ride too by logging on to this website

https://www.lovetoride.net/uk . During September, the council will also be encouraging residents to get out on their bikes via our social media platforms.

On the subject of cycling, here is a reminder of the Active Travel plans the County are working on across Oxfordshire that will benefit many cyclists in our districts: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/roads-and-transport/activetravel

Business Support

Discretionary Business Grants

Across South and Vale we’ve given out well over £1.5 million in Discretionary Business Grants. Last Friday was the deadline for applications to the fund and we’re pleased to say we’ve now paid out to all the successful applicants.

The fund was provided to us by the government to help support small and micro-businesses affected by Covid-19, particularly those not eligible for other business grants. Over the last four months our Economic Development and several other departments have worked incredibly hard to process the applications and make the final payments quickly. In the Vale of White Horse – 55 micro and small businesses each received a £10,000 grant – a total of £550,000.

Car Park charges – Vale Cabinet puts local business recovery first

Vale of White Horse District Council’s Cabinet has prioritised supporting local businesses recovering from COVID-19 ahead of addressing the council’s own longer-term financial pressures in deciding about changes to car park charges across the district. Earlier this month, Cabinet considered a range of options for the district’s council car parks. After listening to feedback from local residents and businesses, Cabinet members unanimously agreed to retain two hours free parking across the district in order to ensure that town centre shops and cafes can continue to benefit from the scheme while they recover from the pandemic.

Council Matters

Leisure Centres phased opening plans

You’ll be aware that we’re opening the district’s leisure centres in phases with our partners at GLL– it’s worth bearing in mind that given the changing national situation with the Covid-19 pandemic, the activities and facilities available at a given leisure centre may need to change, be temporarily closed or have occasional changes to opening hours and/or services. These changes are made in accordance with the latest guidance from the government, Sport England and Swim. GLL’s “Better” website lists the latest information on opening hours and services. Residents are advised to visit the website and follow GLL on twitter for the latest information.

Housing update – ban on evictions

The ban on landlords evicting their tenants in England and Wales has been extended until 20 September taking the total ban to six months. Our housing team continue to work with residents and advise them of their rights in this ever-changing situation. You can find the full government guidance here

Vale Cabinet Re-organisation

Leader of the Council, Cllr Emily Smith has made some changes to the Vale’s Cabinet that came into effect on 1 September. You can read her public statement on the changes on our website here. The new cabinet member responsibilities are below:

  • Councillor Emily Smith: Council Leader
  • Councillor Debby Hallett: Deputy Council Leader and Corporate Services and Transformation
  • Councillor Andy Crawford: Finance and Corporate Assets
  • Councillor Neil Fawcett: Strategic Partnerships and Place
  • Councillor Helen Pighills: Healthy Communities
  • Councillor Judy Roberts: Development and Infrastructure
  • Councillor Bethia Thomas: Community Engagement
  • Councillor Catherine Webber: Climate Emergency and Environment

Planning for the Future consultation

The government has started its consultation to overhaul the planning system and reform the way development is allowed. Its stated aims are to streamline processes, achieve community engagement early in the process and increase the use of technology in consultation and provide interactive maps, so it is more open and transparent. It suggests the reforms will drive our economic recovery, help build green, high quality homes and develop a framework of national green infrastructure standards.

Proposals include:

  • a 30 per cent discount to homes sold through the First Homes system with an emphasis on key workers
  • scrapping Section 106 agreements and introducing a new National Infrastructure Levy, with local decision making on infrastructure spending.
  • every area across England will have a Local Plan and can develop design guidance and/or codes, which will be binding on development decisions
  • strengthening planning enforcement and sanctions through a rule-based system.

There is a lot of discussion in the press about the proposed reforms, but we encourage you to read the consultation paper, link below, and get your comments to the Government by the deadline, 29 October 2020.

New council websites go live At the end of last week, we soft-launched our new council websites to gather public feedback, and we’d love to know what you think of them.

Visitors to our existing website will be given the chance to visit the new sites and offer feedback via an online form – if you’d like to try the sites out, please head to the relevant page below:

South Oxfordshire

Vale of White Horse

Do you have any events planned in your area?

We manage a local Safety Advisory Group, which has members of the emergency services, county and district councils to help give advice to event organisers to ensure their event takes place safely. If you know of any events happening in your community this year such as open fairs on private land, public firework displays, Remembrance Day parades/gatherings or Christmas events open to the general public, please would you provide the event organiser details via events@southandvale.gov.uk and we will make contact to gather the information required to pass on to the relevant members of the group.

As mentioned previously, we are unable to provide specific advice on COVID-19 safety at events. Event organisers will need to make themselves aware of current government guidance to manage their event and use their health and safety risk assessments to cover both general risks and those specifically for COVID-19. Please see our update on 19 August for more information and guidance.

Oxfordshire Investment Plan

The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP) has finalised its Oxfordshire Investment Plan, which – among other things – promises to deliver 24,500 new jobs to the county. The Investment Plan takes forward some of the ideas set out in the Local Industrial Strategy and turns them into a programme of actions until the year 2030.

The portfolio promises to deliver at least:

  • 24,500 new jobs (gross fulltime equivalents);
  • 344,400m² of new commercial and innovation floorspace;
  • 29,400 new homes (based on existing local plans and the Oxfordshire Housing & Growth Deal);
  • 2,700 qualifications (NVQ4+ and Apprenticeships); and
  • support for over 41,000 adult and young learners.

OxLEP will now engage with Ministers and officials as part of government’s preparations for the forthcoming Comprehensive Spending Review and development activity in support of the Oxford-Cambridge Arc programme.
