Is the Council up to Standard?

Written on . Posted in Community, Democracy, Older people, Our performance, Residents, Young people, Your council

Do you want to have a say on the actions of our councillors? Two vacancies on the Epping Forest Standards Committee have arisen that will allow you to do just this.

The two positions must be completely independent of the District, Town and Parish Councils for which the Standards Committee has responsibilities. Along with a third independent member they will share responsibilities with six councillors drawn from the District and local Town or Parish Councils.

Although the most visible role of the Standards Committee members is to hear complaints and adjudicate on the conduct of councillors, there is much more to the position. Standards committee duties also include monitoring and advising on the code of conduct to which local councillors are bound. It promotes the code and offers training to councillors as well as advice on ethical issues.

There are four meetings of the full Standards Committee each year which are held in the evenings and are up to two hours in length. In addition, various sub committees meet for the purpose of dealing with complaints. These are usually held in the daytime and can vary in length.

Independent members of the Standards Committee may receive a small allowance in the sum of £500 to cover the personal costs of their role. A larger allowance is payable to the Chairman of the Committee, a position which must be held by one of the independent members.

Potential applicants should contact Ian Willett, Deputy Monitoring Officer at Epping Forest District Council by telephone on 01992 564243 or by email via iwillett@eppingforestdc.gov.uk

District Council services range from planning control to environmental health, refuse collection and recycling. The Council provides public leisure centres and swimming pools, around 6,500 Council houses, shops and industrial units for small and medium businesses. Investment in capital schemes such as the Broadway Town Centre Enhancement boosts the district`s infrastructure.

During the recession the District Council is supporting residents and businesses. It has frozen car park charges, assisted small businesses with rent rebates during Town Centre Enhancement works and made small grants available to people in danger of losing their homes through rent arrears and repossessions.

Much of the funding for the Citizens` Advice Bureau and other voluntary organisations that have supported people through the recession comes from Epping Forest District Council. It has worked in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses and other employment organisations to boost local jobs.

Epping Forest District Council also collects the Council Tax precepts for the Police, Essex County Fire and Rescue Service, Essex County Council and 24 local Town and Parish Councils. Each organisation sets its own budgets and notifies Epping Forest District Council how much Council Tax to collect on its behalf.

Councillor Chris Whitbread, Finance Portfolio Holder for Epping Forest District Council said: We are a low-tax Council. We are debt-free and we have put money aside for a rainy day. With the country struggling to pull out of recession no one wants to see big increases in tax. Unlike many Councils, we have the cash we need to see us through the recession. We don`t need to make heavy cuts in services or big tax increases. Epping Forest District Council is playing its part in supporting local people at home and work. Other Councils will look on our position with envy.

Cafe Pays Price for Out of Date Food

Food products including ham, cheese and shrimps have been seized from an Epping Cafe by Environmental Health Officers from Epping Forest District Council following a routine inspection on 2 February 2010. The Officers seized the products from Belgique after discovering them to be past their use by date – in one case by more than a month.

The issue was referred to a Justice of the Peace at Harlow Magistrates` Court who agreed the food should be condemned and destroyed. Belgique were not represented in court but will have to pay for the cost of disposal of the out of date food products.

Two Hygiene and Improvement Notices have been issued to Belgique on `food management safety` and `staff training`. They have 14 days to comply with the notices and failure to do so could lead to prosecution.

Retailers Encouraged to Challenge 25

Written on . Posted in Business, Community, Local business, Older people, Residents, Supporting business, Your area, Your community

Essex County Council Trading Standards are encouraging retailers throughout Epping Forest to sign up for the Challenge 25 scheme, to help prevent underage sales of all age-restricted goods and crack down on antisocial behaviour.

Trading Standards will be working with Epping Forest District Council, Epping Forest Safer Communities Partnership and Essex Police to help retailers implement a Challenge 25 policy.

Anyone attempting to buy an age restricted product (including: alcohol, tobacco, knives, solvents, aerosol paints, fireworks and video recordings and games), who looks under 25 will be asked to confirm their age by producing a valid form of ID. This helps to reduce some of the uncertainty that staff face when selling age-restricted items.

The campaign is aimed at supporting local businesses and raising awareness about the consequences of under-age sales. Trading Standards will visit every relevant retailer in Epping Forest to promote the scheme and encourage them to voluntarily sign up for Challenge 25.

Premises that sign up for Challenge 25 are given posters and leaflets explaining how the scheme works, as well as verbal guidance to staff on how to spot a fake ID, how to avoid proxy sales and how to refuse a sale.

Councillor Syd Stavrou, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety & Transport Portfolio Holder said: We hope that all the retail outlets selling these products will sign up to Challenge 25.  This initiative focuses on those products that, when sold irresponsibly, cause the greatest anti-social impact on society.  The introduction of this scheme in Epping Forest District will help to reduce under age sales and identify those premises that might need closer supervision.  The Partnership fully supports its introduction.

Written on . Posted in Community, Conservation and listed buildings, Older people, Residents, Volunteering opportunities, Young people, Your community, Your environment

The final version of the Bell Common Conservation Area Character Appraisal & Management Plan has been published by Epping Forest District Council. This follows public consultation last year when local residents were invited to comment on the draft document.

Bell Common Conservation Area was first designated in 1985 and encompasses the open green space of Bell Common as well as all the buildings which surround it. The appraisal was compiled between August 2007 and December 2008 when the area was surveyed and photographed in detail.  A range of historic maps was consulted and documentary research carried out.

Bell Common Conservation Area

The purpose of a character appraisal is to define the character of the conservation area, review its boundaries and highlight any parts of it that may be in need of improvement. The character appraisal for the Bell Common Conservation Area covers topics such as public spaces, historical roots of the area and key views and characteristics as well as sites with potential for improvement or development.

  • A limited number of hard copies will also be available. These can be obtained by telephoning 01992 564582 (or 01992 564068) or by emailing contactLB@eppingforestdc.gov.uk. Alternatively, the appraisal will be available to view at the District Council`s Planning Reception from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, Civic Offices, Epping.

    The Council is currently working on Character Appraisal and Management Plans for the conservation areas within Loughton which are due to be available for public consultation in the near future.

Waltham Abbey Bible in Top 10

Written on . Posted in Community, Museum, Older people, Our attractions, Residents, Waltham Abbey, Young people, Your area, Your community

The Waltham Abbey Bible, on display at Epping Forest District Museum, has been selected as one of the top ten most important museum objects to reflect Essex`s history.

BBC Essex has joined up with museums across the county to choose a number of objects the people involved feel best reflect its unique place and past in the world. This is part of the BBC`s Nationwide history of the world project. A series of television and radio programmes will be broadcast on the BBC throughout 2010 with a vision to tell the history of the world through man-made objects.

Epping Forest District Museum Officer Tony O`Connor was interviewed about the significance of the Waltham Abbey bible by BBC Essex radio on Thursday 28 January. He said: The bible is one of our star items on display at the Museum. It dates back to about 1200 AD and is all that survived from the library in the Abbey Church, the last in the country to be dissolved by King Henry VIII in 1540.

Inscriptions inside the Bible tell us it was the property of the Prior (the second most important official in the Abbey). The lack of rich decoration suggests this book was used for private study and not for display within the church. Both the Old and New Testaments are written in tightly-packed Latin script on 238 pages of Vellum (Parchment), the standard writing material in medieval England, made from treated animal skins.

Tony O`Connor added: It is a real privilege for the Bible to be chosen as one of the most important objects in Essex`s history. The Bible does not just belong to the Museum but to all the residents of the Epping Forest district and represents an important part of local and national history.

The Waltham Abbey Bible, which was acquired with support form the Victoria & Albert Museum Purchase Fund can be viewed at Epping Forest District Museum.

Keeping High Streets Clear as Freeze Deepens

Written on . Posted in Business, Community, Older people, Residents, Travel, Young people, Your area, Your community, Your council, Your environment

As temperatures remain below freezing, Essex County Council continues the battle to keep the district`s main roads free of ice and snow. Although not strictly part of its role, Epping Forest District Council is also helping by diverting staff and contractors from normal duties to grit heavily-used pedestrian areas.

The District Council is set to take delivery of another three tonnes of grit on Friday 8 January 2010, supplementing supplies already being used in town and shopping centres, car parks and sheltered housing schemes for older people.

Councillor Mary Sartin, Environment Portfolio Holder for Epping Forest District Council said: Although Essex County Council Highways is responsible for gritting, we are working well in partnership. District Council grounds maintenance staff and street cleaners employed by our contractor Sita are supporting the County efforts on the roads by targeting the most heavily-used pedestrian areas of the district.

It is hard work but our teams are doing all they can, shovelling snow to the sides of pavements and laying down salt. They can`t do every path and pavement, we don`t have enough people. It is very low-tech but is of great benefit to high street businesses and local residents in need of shopping supplies during the freeze.

Staff are also gritting local pay and display car parks. Earlier this week Councillors agreed in principle to hold Pay and Display car park charges at current levels for another year and maintain free parking in the Council`s Long Stay Car Parks on Saturdays. Councillor Sartin said: It is another example of our commitment to supporting residents and local businesses.
