Question and Response:

Q.1    Please provide electronic details of the deficit recovery plans that have been devised for Greenhead Primary School with length of term of each plan
a)    in May 2018
b)    subsequent to May 2018
c)    subsequent to the undisclosed sum of money being allocated to the School implied to be over 10 years.

A.1    In the present case the County Council takes the view that the information is exempt under section 43 on the basis that it is commercially sensitive. In this case the Authority relies on section 43(2).  Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 43(2): Information is exempt information if its disclosure under this Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice the commercial interests of any person (including the public authority holding it). 

Public Interest Test Considerations 

Section 43 is a qualified exemption which means that the information falling within the exemption still has to be released unless the public interest in disclosure is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining the exemption. The public interest test has been applied and although it is recognised that there is an element of public interest in transparency of spending in relation to public funds, revealing the detail of any such funds would have an overriding detrimental impact of the local authority's commercial interests in this instance. Therefore the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure.

Question and Response:

Q.1   How many council staff work in the centre of each Northumberland Town

A.1    We have assigned a town to each building as at 31 March for this year and the last two years. - please see the attached document

Q.2    How has this changed over the past 2 years

A.2     Please see the response to Q.1

Q.3    What investment has been made in Northumberland high streets.

A.3     The County Council is committed to working with Town Forums and similar partnerships to make the most of the county's town centres, targeting interventions and support where it will have the greatest impact.

Partners in towns across Northumberland are being encouraged by the County Council to develop proposals as part of the council’s new Town Investment Programme.  The councils priorities for town centre growth and regeneration are set out in the Northumberland Economic Strategy 2019-2014 and we are working with regional partners including the North of Tyne Combined Authority and Borderlands Initiative to deliver.

The council’s offer to towns includes drawing in support and assistance from across the authority including Advance Northumberland to work with project sponsors to develop their plans.  

The council’s town investment programme already includes major development commitments to support town centres such as the new leisure centre in Morpeth, works on Bedlington Town Centre, Amble Enterprise Park, Lower Prudhoe, Manor Walks in Cramlington and the development of Portland Park in Ashington.  

This was recently added to following further decisions by council in March 2019 focused on encouraging town centre development, this includes announcements to: 

To submit an expression of interest by 22nd March 2019 seeking support from the national Future High Streets Fund to develop a new, deliverable vision for Blyth town centre.  
To support the development of the business case for the new Berwick Maltings Theatre and Conference Centre that has the potential to transform Berwick town centre.  
To support the development of a feasibility study to establish how Alnwick bus station and the surrounding area can be improved as a key gateway into the town.  
The council is continuing to talk to towns across the county to deliver what will be a comprehensive Town Investment Programme.  There will be more news later this year as we identify projects which give us the best chance of attracting investment.  

This involves local County Councillors, their Town Council colleagues and other strategic partners with the intention of together demonstrating through town forums that we can work together to deliver solutions to make our town centres fit for the future.

Q.4   What assessment has the council made on Northumberland High Streets in relation to the Grimsey Review?

A.4 The Grimsey review and the national Future High Streets Advisory Panel have both guided the county councils approach to establishing its town Investment Programme and the development of Town Forums and similar partnerships.

The Grimsey review pointed to a number of actions that Local Government can take forward including:
 
  • Establish an empowered organisation or Town Centre Commission under strong, established leadership 
  • Ensure that this vision is underpinned by a comprehensive business/place plan. 
  • Accept that there is already too much retail space in the UK and that bricks and mortar retailing can no longer be the anchor for thriving high streets and town centres. They need to be repopulated and re-fashioned as community hubs, including housing, health and leisure, entertainment, education, arts, business/office space and some shops. 
  • Embed libraries and public spaces at the heart of each community as digital and health hubs that embrace smart technology. 
  • Establish common key performance indicators to measure the economic and public health of each town. Link the reporting through a data dashboard to provide independent, objective and current data on performance. Data gathered by the town needs to be delivered in Open Format (Open Data) so it can be shared. 
  • Local authorities should establish events teams to manage a comprehensive programme of activities that complement the Town Centre Commission Plan by driving footfall to local high streets.

The council is responding to this agenda picking up on Grimseys findings particularly about the need for ‘town centre commissions’, ‘comprehensive business/place plans’ and ‘common key performance indicators’ by:
 
  1. Providing a comprehensive Town Regeneration Support package
  2. Establishing a network of Town Forums developing and enabling the delivery of economic development and regeneration projects for long term benefit. Each of the 7 main towns (larger centres) has a town forum or similar arrangement established for 2019 onwards.  The forums include a focus on utilising the Councils own assets as effectively as possible.
  3. Supporting the development of a Town Investment Programme to fully establish comprehensive business / place plans with a future pipeline of interventions to boost economic performance in town centres.
  4. Establishing support to monitor town performance through the new NCC town economy matrix

Further detail about the councils approach is set out below.

1. Town Regeneration Support

The council provides the following support:
 
  • Directly providing coordination support in the seven main towns (larger centres) with a dedicated town forum, forums established to date are supported by officers from the Economy and Regeneration Service and Strategic Estates.  Each forum / partnership arrangement is at a different stage in development as they become fully established
  • Providing a dedicated link officer within the Economy and Regeneration Service to support and regular liaise with smaller main towns.  
  • Support for all settlements - The service provides assistance to a wide range of communities in Northumberland to support regeneration projects and partnership development
  • Targeted assistance linked to the above, Advance Northumberland lead on a range of priority investment projects in localities.

2. Town Forums

The purpose and focus of town forums is on developing and enabling the delivery of economic development and regeneration projects for long term benefit.  They provide a place focused partnership and flexible grouping (not a formal decision making body) to: 
 
  • Develop joint initiatives and support action 
  • Engage the public in the work of organisations
Support for town forums from NCC is as follows:
  • Town Chairs: Each main town (larger centres) has support from a senior officer, in most cases as Chair of the relevant forum
  • Cross service support: The above arrangements provide the basis to identify what support may be required including planning and technical support, and involvement from other services and Advance Northumberland and Active Northumberland.
  • Corporate Focus: The Council’s town regeneration focus is supported by the corporate Regeneration Investment Group (RIG) structure providing a regular focus on the place based agenda to ensure effective provision of funding, strategy and cross service support
  • Project Pipeline: Each town’s key regeneration projects are included in the corporate Regeneration Investment Pipeline
  • Performance: the Council has produced a new Town Economy Matrix to assist partners in understanding performance in towns.  This matrix enclosed with this briefing provides a summary of headline data regarding performance in the main towns and is intended to act as an aid to partners in considering the baseline performance of their town. 

3. Town Investment Programme

The council has been encouraging partners to work together to develop a Northumberland Town Investment Programme.  This involves working with Town Forums and similar place based partnerships, Town Councils, commercial and community partners.
 
  • Project Pipeline - the purpose is to fully establish a future pipeline of interventions to boost economic performance in town centres.  
  • Work to date - this build on work to date in a number of towns, e.g. Town Forums 
  • New Ideas - The council has made available an expression of interest process - to identify new ideas and outline proposals which now need to be tested and potentially worked up into business cases
  • Further work - This is an ongoing process through which the council will work with partners. The council is offering to develop place based business plans with towns appropriate to each locality. 

4. Town Performance
 
  • Economy Matrix - The council has produced the new NCC Town Economy Matrix available to inform local plans and proposals.  This draws together for the first time available information across the Council, this has been sent to key stakeholders in each town centre and its use encouraged through the town forum network and a recent all member briefing with county councillors.
  • Business Cases - The intention is to provide evidence to help inform the identification and preparation of strong business cases which justify intervention.  It provides a starting point to understand the relative performance of town centres
  • Support for 12 main towns - the matrix covers the 12 main towns (large and small centres).  NCC staff are available to help stakeholders understand and investigate available data for any town / settlement in Northumberland.  There are plans going forward to potentially commission further work to inform this such as developing a new approach to footfall data.

Question and Response:

Q.1   Appeal for Corbridge Middle School

As previously stated in our email dated 11th March 2019, we would like to confirm our intention to appeal the placement of the order for the roofing work for the above project with Bryan Crisp and Sons Specialist Services Ltd. We have requested details of the product proposed by the above-mentioned contractor in our email dated 12th March 2019, so that we may give a focused response but as yet, have had no response. Again we would ask for the full product information so that we may give a direct comparison between the clearly specified product and the alternative proposed, as we not aware of any other roofing system that gives the same performance, warranty and insurance criteria as that specified, along with the extensive support systems in place from the manufacturer. We would also take this opportunity to request the evaluation notes of individual evaluators and any notes of evaluation meetings.

A.1   Details requested of the product proposed by the successful contractor:

The product accepted is an ICB product and has a BBA certificate that confirms the product has been tested in accordance with British and European Standards and conforms to these standards. ICB are listed on the LRWA website members profile and the guarantee provided states that this for an ICB waterproofing system. This is an insurance backed guarantee for all products supplied. The product was suitably assessed by Northumberland County Council and their appointed consultant and was deemed comparable to the Sika System.
  • EU Tender Threshold
The overall project value was below the EU works threshold and therefore the requirements of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 regarding trademarks etc did not apply to this procurement process, however it is considered that the process was undertaken in an open, fair and transparent manner.
  • Drawings, Schedule of Works, Specification & Prelims
In addressing your point of specific references to products, the first item of the Schedule of Works clearly stated ‘Equal or Approved’ and therefore all subsequent references to products should have been taken as such. This provision ensured a fair process by not excluding alternative products.

It is noted that your company did not submit any clarification regarding this during the procurement process.

As stated within your letter, the Sika site report and specification documents were included as a reference guide for the scope of works required only.
  • Evaluation notes of individual evaluators
It is considered that this is commercially sensitive as per Section 43(2) of the FOI Act. 

Public Interest Test Considerations 

Section 43 is a qualified exemption which means that the information falling within the exemption still has to be released unless the public interest in disclosure is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining the exemption.  The release of this information could lead to unfair tender processes and/or could be detrimental to tender processes in the future, so whilst the council seeks to be open and transparent, the reasons for withholding this outweighs the reasons for releasing the information.
