A Conservative motion which demanded Northumberland County Council overturn a decision, described by non-political officers of the authority as ‘lawful’, came within a whisker of landing the county’s taxpayers with a bill of £80,000 at an extraordinary meeting of the council on 11 July.

LABOUR SAVAGES TORY PLAN WHICH WOULD HAVE MEANT MORE TAXPAYERS CASH WASTED

Extraordinary meeting vote comes close to landing taxpayer with EXTRA £80,000 bill

A Conservative motion which demanded Northumberland County Council overturn a decision, described by non-political officers of the authority as ‘lawful’, came within a whisker of landing the county’s taxpayers with a bill of £80,000 at an extraordinary meeting of the council on 11 July. 

The figure which has been verified by officers has been disputed by leading Conservatives and Labour can reveal the figure would have been much higher if Tory councillors had won the vote in the extraordinary meeting. The cost of the original policy decision cost over £60,000 and if the Conservative motion had been successful then that cost would have been wasted and would have meant new consultations mirroring the cost of the first lawful policy decision.  

The vote was 34 to 30 in favour of the original policy decision which had already been implemented saving the council over £2.4m a year and local Conservatives have suffered a double blow when it emerged that a letter from the Prime Minister David Cameron’s office backed the council’s approach to the post 16 decision.

Labour are also pointing to the decision by the Conservative group to vote for the motion which would have overturned the policy as evidence that they ‘continued to live in denial’ over the damage which could have been caused if the motion had gone through and they’re calling for answers why the Conservatives didn’t call the original policy board decision in under rules in the constitution. 

A Labour group spokesperson said 
 "The figure of £80,000 released by the authority comprised of actions which would have happened had the Conservative motion for the extraordinary meeting been passed.

 If the Tories had got their way then the taxpayer would have been saddled with the £80,000 bill. The vote at the meeting meant the motion was defeated 34 votes to 30 and there was no requirement to revisit a lawful policy.

 We're happy to clear up any misunderstanding about the figure and while the £80,000 figure was not required, local Tories voted for the additional spending through their motion only to be defeated in the vote.

They may be trying to wriggle out of that now but they voted for a motion which cost the taxpayer over £15,000. Conservatives may want to ‘run away from that fact but they can’t hide’ and they still haven’t answered why Conservative group leader failed to call the original decision in three months ago? If he’d done that then there would have been no ‘extraordinary meeting”.

The government has claimed under fire Northumberland County Council is still paying significant travel subsidies for students

Council leaders under fire over the introduction of transport charges for students are still paying “significant” subsidies for travel, government bosses have said.
Labour run Northumblerland County Council has been criticised having decided to impose fees of up to £600 for those in post-16 education.
Prime Minister David Cameron even joined the attacks on the authority in the House of Commons recently when claiming “Labour costs us more.”
Yet now, department of education insiders appear to have sympathised with the council in saying the £600 charge, for students without access to public transport, “still represents a significant subsidy on the actual cost for the majority of students.”
The stance was last night welcomed by Labour who claimed it represented an “embarrassing flip flop” for the Conservatives.
Yet the Tories insisted education bosses were not at odds with the Prime Minister and once again criticised Labour for their reintroduction of the charges.
The council brought in charges blaming cuts to its funding from the government, but faced an angry backlash from parents, pupils and opposition politicians.
Mr Cameron joined in following a question from Berwick MP Sir Alan Beith, saying: “I certainly join him in agreeing that this is another example of the fact that Labour costs us more.”
One county parent recently wrote to the prime minister voicing concerns over the introduction of the charges.
A reply was sent to the parent by an official in the department of education which appears sympathetic to the council.
It says: “I note that Northumberland County Council has changed the arrangements for 2014/15, although the £600 charge for the provision of transport for those students without access to public transport still represents a significant subsidy on the actual cost for the majority of students.
“I also note that the council intends to continue providing free transport for students from low income backgrounds, and for those with learning difficulties and disabilities...
“I do, however, recognise that the majority of students entering post-16 education and training for the first time, in September 2014, will have to pay significantly more than they would have done previously.
“However, it is for the council to decide on the exact level of support in its area and arrangements may change from one year to the next, based on local circumstances and the council’s priorities.”
Grant Davey, leader of Northumberland County Council  
Last night, council and Labour leader Grant Davey said: “The ‘flip flop’ by the government is an embarrassment for Northumberland Tories who have shamelessly played party politics with the issue of post 16 transport.
“They forced an extraordinary meeting with the sole purpose of overturning a lawful decision by the council’s policy board and they shamelessly leant on public servants for their own party political ends.
“You won’t often hear me say this but I agree with the government and its a shame that the prime minister felt the need to stoke up the political hyperbole in Northumberland in prime minister’s questions.”
The Tories insisted the education department was not at odds with Mr Cameron, claiming both were stating that the decision to bring in charges was one for the local authority.
Leader Peter Jackson said: “Whatever reply the parents have had from sources at Whitehall, the situation on the ground is not acceptable and it is about time that the Labour run county council started doing something about this really serious problem.”
Seahouses parent Sue Patterson said: “It’s still unrecognised by politicians in London or even Morpeth for that matter how bad our transport links are.
“I think government made these changes, instead of being fobbed off they should be implementing ways of getting our children to schools/colleges.

“No-one is taking the blame here, they’re all just burying their heads and blaming each other, with lots of lies thrown in for good measure.”

Labour politicians in Northumberland have welcomed the latest figures which show the council now ‘pays its bills within 30 days on 94% of all payments made’ as further evidence of how the county council is positively influencing the local economy.

NEWS RELEASE
COUNCIL TRUMPETS IMPROVEMENT AS PAYMENTS TO BUSINESSES TOPS 94%
PAYMENTS TO BUSINESSES WITHIN 30 DAYS BOOST TO NORTHUMBERLAND ECONOMY

Labour politicians in Northumberland have welcomed the latest figures which show the council now ‘pays its bills within 30 days on 94% of all payments made’ as further evidence of how the county council is positively influencing the local economy.

When the council changed hands last year and Labour formed the new administration, it started to implement promises made in the party’s manifesto and they’re pointing to the new record figure as another example of delivering promises made to residents.

 Labour have already set in train the county’s most ambitious affordable housing scheme since the 1970’s with over 400 homes either built or in planning, started to set out the case to return council services to the county’s towns, tackled the pot hole ‘black hole’ inherited which has been cleared and set out a plan to allow local communities to implement free parking.

They’re also highlighting the benefit to the local economy of council actions such as making sure its bills are paid promptly.

Grant Davey, the Labour group and council leader said

“We’ve an important role to play as a ‘leader’ in local communities and that includes ‘paying our way’. It’s vital for local businesses cash flow that bills are paid on time and that’s another way to help businesses in tough trading times. We’ve already delivered free parking and are committed to returning council services to the county towns and we’re keen to push the idea of procuring locally with our commitment to reach 10% more contracts let to county firms creating and safeguarding county jobs’.

The water feature had been broken and Blyth families left disappointed but it is now fully working again

Families celebrate as Ridley Park water feature is fixed in time for summer
Jul 21, 2014  Journal

The water feature had been broken and Blyth families left disappointed but it is now fully working again

 Councillor Eileen Cartie and Councillor Ian Swithenbank at launch of the reopened water feature in Ridley Park, Blyth
Families in Northumberland are celebrating after the council fixed a popular water feature in time for the summer holidays.
The feature in Ridley Park in Blyth had been out of action, leaving youngsters disappointed at missing out on a refreshing splash on hot afternoons.
But after getting the right piece of kit, Northumberland County Council managed to get the water feature up and running just as the schools broke up for the holidays.
The water jet feature will operate daily from 10am to 6pm.

County Councillor Eileen Cartie joined local families to launch the reopened feature.
She said: “I am delighted the water park is up and running again. I am sure that many children will come along and enjoy this and everything else that Ridley Park has to offer.”
Northumberland County Council experienced a number of unforeseen difficulties with the equipment which runs the water feature, but is very pleased that it is up and running for the summer holidays.

The council expects that the feature will run every day throughout the summer although occasional interruptions for maintenance may be required to ensure the feature runs safely and smoothly.

Coun Ian Swithenbank, policy board member responsible for parks at the council, said: “We know how much this feature is valued and so we have been very frustrated not to have been able to launch it before now.
“We have been doing everything that we can, but have had to wait for essential parts to come from the manufacturer. We have given the system a full overhaul and are now very hopeful that it will run smoothly over the coming summer months.”
Ridley Park is on Belgrave Crescent in Blyth and includes tennis courts, a children’s play area, a cafĂ© recently re-opened as Mister Ridley’s Parlour, and open green spaces.



Labour are also pointing out Tory Guy Opperman’s position on the introduction of the ‘living wage’ and his public stance on tackling low wages in Northumberland and Labour are demanding that the MP ‘clears up his position on the proposal to sack and rehire council workers’.

‘COUNCIL WORKERS WILL PAY PRICE OF CONDEM FOLLY’
LABOUR ATTACK ‘TORY/LIB DEM’ PLAN TO SACK 9,000 COUNCIL WORKERS
AND THEN REHIRE THEM ON LOWER TERMS AND CONDITIONS

The controversial extraordinarily expensive extraordinary meeting on 11 July provided a fitting platform for the latest ‘hare-brained scheme’ to come off the ConDem ‘production line’ with both parties putting forward a proposal to ‘sack 9,000+ council employees and then rehire them on worse terms and conditions’.

The proposal was put forward as a way to fund the ‘reintroduction of free post 16 transport for students’ but critics including Labour councillors and trade unions have branded the proposal ‘a plan for poverty wages’. Unite/Unison trade unions have highlighted that many council employees already face a ‘cost of living crisis’ with wages falling in real terms as pay increases are pegged at 1%.

Labour are also pointing out Tory Guy Opperman’s position on the introduction of the ‘living wage’ and his public stance on tackling low wages in Northumberland and Labour are demanding that the MP ‘clears up his position on the proposal to sack and rehire council workers’.

A Labour group spokesperson said
“Guy Opperman needs to distance himself from the latest ‘barmy idea’ to come from his councillors in Northumberland. Does he support their proposal to sack council employees and rehire them on worse terms and conditions?”
Unison trade union recently released figures which show that their campaign to increase wages for hundreds of local government employees in Northumberland by £1 per hour would mean an over saving to the government as it would lift these employees out of ‘low paid welfare top-up’s’. They expressed their dismay saying ‘the proposals would mean a race to the bottom in Northumberland’.

Laura Pidcock, a Labour councillor from Cramlington said
“This is a dangerous but typical proposal from the Tories and Lib Dems, the Labour administration are definitely ruling it out. We’ve been here before when the Tories and Lib Dems entered into a ‘secret contract’ from 2008 which cost 1500 people their jobs.  This proposal shows the ConDems  have  a  very  destructive  plan  to  introduce  ‘poverty  wages’  for  their remaining workers. At a time when we have a cost of living crisis, when wages have stagnated and prices are rocketing the last thing any working person needs is an attack on their terms and conditions of employment!"
NOTES
·         The proposal would put the council on a collision course with trade unions and would effectively ‘rip up national terms and conditions’ negotiations 

·         It would potentially affect every employee.

Council leader Grant Davey said: “This is a key issue both for local people and the business community. We are keen to build a business case for dualling the A1 in Northumberland as well as looking at the case for investment in other transport projects along the route.

Dualling A1 could bring in nearly £400m to North East economy

Northumberland County Council report shows economic case of dualling the A1 North of Newcastle

Single carriageway section of the A1 in Northumberland
Dualling the A1 could hand Northumberland a £376m economic boost, a report has suggested.
Officials at Northumberland County Council have sent the Department for Transport the findings of a detailed look at the economic benefits of dualling the road north of Newcastle.
The report, also passed to the Highways Agency, says Alnwick, Berwick and Morpeth could benefit directly from dualling the road.
The council estimates that dualling could result in 2,000 new jobs and 12,000 new homes as well as generating £376m for the local economy.
Council leader Grant Davey said: “This is a key issue both for local people and the business community. We are keen to build a business case for dualling the A1 in Northumberland as well as looking at the case for investment in other transport projects along the route.
“This has been a long-standing priority for the council and we believe dualling will address accident problems, reduce delays and bring clear economic benefits. We are fully in support of the Highways Agency and the DfT study and will be working hard to make our case at national level.”
The council is now waiting to see if the road will be given a boost this Autumn when the Chancellor announces a new wave of infrastructure commitments.

My reply from House of Commons i did try!!!!
Thank you for your email of 1 July, addressed to the Prime Minister, expressing your concerns about the cost of transport to education and training for 16 to 19 years olds, in Northumberland. I hope you are able to appreciate the Prime Minister receives a large amount of correspondence and is unable to reply to each one personally. Your letter has been passed to this department as we have responsibility for this policy area and on this occasion I have been asked to reply.
Whilst I acknowledge your concerns, I should explain that the statutory responsibility for transport to education and training for this area rests with local authorities (LAs), enabling them to make decisions which best match local needs and circumstances.
The wide range of options available to post-16 students means that they often travel to a diverse range of locations and at different times of day - sometimes across a wide area and across LA boundaries. So we do not believe it would be right to require authorities to meet every student’s individual transport needs.
The law covering the provision of transport for young people aged 16 to 19 requires LAs to publish a statement each year, setting out the support they consider necessary for young people to access education or training. These arrangements do not have to include free or subsidised transport, but LAs are expected to make reasonable decisions based on the needs of their population, the local transport infrastructure and the resources they have available.
The actual transport provided by LAs varies but most young people (including in rural areas) do have access to some kind of discount or concession on local bus or train travel - either from their LA or from the local transport providers. The government supports local bus travel, including in rural areas, through the Bus Service Operators Grant.
I note that Northumberland County Council (NCC) has changed the arrangements for 2014/15, although the £600 charge for the provision of transport for those students without access to public transport still represents a significant subsidy on the actual cost for the majority of students. I also note that the Council intends to continue providing free transport for students from low income backgrounds, and for those with learning difficulties and disabilities. The Council’s post-16 transport statement can be found at:http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=457.
I do, however, recognise that the majority of students entering post-16 education and training for the first time, in September 2014, will have to pay significantly more than they would have done previously. However, it is for the Council to decide on the exact level of support in its area and arrangements may change from one year to the next, based on local circumstances and the Council’s priorities.
If you think that the Council is not fulfilling its post-16 transport duty you should take it up directly with officials at NCC and you can do that by contacting Barry Rowlands, Director for Local Services, via the following e-mail: barry.rowland@northumberland.gov.uk.
The Government does recognise that the cost of transport can be an issue for some young people and this is one of the reasons why it has introduced the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. The £180million fund is allocated to schools and colleges, and is distributed to financially disadvantaged young people who need additional support to help them with costs such as transport. Further information about the Bursary Fund can be found at:www.gov.uk/1619-bursary-fund.
I hope you find this information useful.
Your correspondence has been allocated reference number 2014/0046934. If you need to respond to us, please visit:www.education.gov.uk/contactus, and quote your reference number.
As part of our commitment to improving the service we provide to our customers, we are interested in hearing your views and would welcome your comments via our website at: www.education.gov.uk/pcusurvey.

Northumberland Gazette
All seven of the North East authorities, with the North East Local Enterprise Partnership, are coming together to showcase all that the region has to offer at the UK’s premier international business event next week.
Members of the North East Combined Authority (NECA) – made up of Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland councils – are uniting with the North East LEP to provide a single gateway for investors looking to work with the region, called Invest North East England, and will be presenting the North East’s offer at the International Festival for Business (IFB) in Liverpool. Invest North East England will make it easier for developers and enterprises interested in setting up in the area to get the support they need to do business here.
Providing a one-stop-shop for inward investment in the North East, the service will allow the seven local authorities to present one shared image of the region, playing to the area’s strengths in manufacturing and engineering; life sciences and healthcare; software and technology; subsea oil and gas, new and renewable energy; and professional, financial and business services
The authorities will attend the IFB on Monday and Tuesday, showcasing the region at Made in the UK, a series of conferences that focus on the manufacturing sector with anticipated attendance by developers and senior business people from the UK and overseas.

Chairman of NECA, Coun Simon Henig, said: “It is about showing the world what we have to offer in the North East, with one shared voice and a set of common strengths.”
