Highways & Neighbourhoods Cabinet Member – Minutes – 14 February 2012
57 (56) MONITORING OF POLYCYCLIC AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAH’s) – The Director of Neighbourhood and Environmental Services submitted a report to advise on the publication of the Final Contract report for the UK PAH Monitoring and Analysis Network (2004-2010) and to highlight the trends in PAH’s within North Lincolnshire.
It was explained that Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) were a group of over 100 different chemicals that were formed during the incomplete burning of coal, oil and gas and other organic substances. The principal sources of PAHs in the UK were road transport and industrial plant.
The measurement of PAHs was carried out to monitor compliance with air quality target levels. The report was published by the air quality contractor and included PAH results up to and including September 2010, and documented results for both of the North Lincolnshire sites in the context of national UK-wide data.
Resolved – That the continued monitoring and investigation of the concentrations of PAHs and the likely sources be approved.
The following items contain exempt information as defined in Paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).
58 (57) REGRADING APPLICATION – HEALTH WALKS COORDINATOR – The Director of Neighbourhood and Environmental Services submitted a report seeking approval for the regrading of the post of Health Walks Coordinator following a revision of the job description.
It was clarified that this was an established post that had developed over a period of time and now differed from the original job description. The main changes in the evaluation were detailed in the report.
Resolved – That the regrading of the Health Walks Coordinator from Grade 4 to Grade 5 be approved.
