Minutes:

The Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham Joint Waste Board considered the updated Waste PFI risk status report (risk register) which had been maintained during the various stages of the joint waste project. The report stated that thirteen risks are registered, with none being added nor deleted since the last Joint Waste Board meeting held on 30th September, 2016. There had been one downward movement in ‘current’ risk score, since the September, 2016, meeting, in relation to the Environmental Impact risk, which was due to the mitigation measures used by the contractor relating to the issues of noise and flies affecting the Bolton Road site.

 

Discussion took place on aspects of the insurance risk.

 

Agreed:- (1) That the updated information on the risk status report, as now submitted, be received.
