Neighbourhood, Environmental and Communities Cabinet Member – Minutes – 2 November 2009

79 (13) FOOD SERVICE PLAN 2009/10 – The Service Director Neighbourhood and Environment submitted a report seeking approval for the council’s Food Service Plan for 2009/2010.

Each Food Authority was required to prepare a Service Plan setting out its proposed activities for the administrative year. The Food Service Plan 2009/2010 detailed how the available resources would be deployed to deliver the broad range of activities required by the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

During March 2009 the FSA made recommendations following an audit relating to the regulation of Approved Establishments. The audit resulted in eight recommendations being made which had or were in the process of being actioned, these were set out in appendix 1 of the report.

Food fraud was one of the three enforcement priority areas decided upon by the Yorkshire and Humber Region Trading Standards Group for 2009/10. As in previous years resources would be deployed to secure high levels of compliance at the highest risk premises.

Resolved – (a) That the Food Service Plan 2009/2010 be approved, (b) that the specific issues for consideration be noted at this time and be subject to further reports should this become necessary, and (c) that a further report be submitted on the progress in actioning the recommendations arising out of the Food Standards Agency audit.

The following item contains exempt information as defined in paragraphs 1 and 2 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended)

80 (14) RESTRUCTURE OF FLEET PROVISION DIVISION – The Service Director Neighbourhood and Environment submitted a report seeking support for a revised organisational structure within the Fleet Provision division.

It was proposed to restructure the Fleet Provision division as a result of two independent reports by the Freight Transport Association and the impact of the impending move to a new depot in Grange Lane North.

Further details along with current and proposed structures were set out in appendices to the report.

Resolved – (a) That the implementation of the proposed structure shown at Appendix 2 of the report be supported, and (b) that the report be submitted to the Corporate Services Cabinet Member for approval.
