Officer Decisions

Officers exercise delegated decision making powers in respect of both non-executive and executive functions of the Council.

The present Scheme of Delegation from the Leader of the Council, which sets out how executive functions will be discharged, provides for delegated decision making by officers. Appendix 9 of the Constitution sets out the non-executive functions delegated to officers. All executive functions, other than those reserved by Cabinet, may be discharged by officers.

The Chief Executive and Strategic Directors of the Council have established their own sub-schemes of delegation detailing which and how both non-executive and executive functions will be discharged on behalf of the authority.

Decision records for the discharge of functions by officers are published below. These decision records set out the following information:-

The attached Integrated Incident Response and Recovery Plan seeks to achieve this statutory requirement.

That the recommended allocations for the Phase 2 of funding for host organisations for the Children’s Capital of Culture Traineeship Programme are approved.

Decision Maker:

(Including Job Title)

Polly Hamilton, Assistant Director, Culture, Sport & Tourism

Specific Delegation:

(If any)

Sub-scheme of Delegation

 

All financial matters relating to the management and delivery of cultural, leisure, green spaces, landscape design and sports services, including:

·       Awarding and distribution of grants

Brief Description of Decision:

That the 2024-25 funding allocations for traineeships are approved.

 

Reasons for the Decision:

The decision supports the delivery of the Children’s Capital of Culture traineeship programme, which provides paid job opportunities for local young people, increases capacity of local cultural organisations, and through this builds to the delivery of the Children’s Capital of Culture programme for 2025.

 

This enables seven organisations to provide paid, part-time employment to 17 x 16-to-25-year-olds from Rotherham, and to run a public-facing activity programme across the borough that is predicted to reach at least 50,000 people.

 

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

Do not allocate the funding – failing to allocate the UKSPF funding to trainee host organisations using an open and competitive process would mean Children’s Capital of Culture is unable to fulfil its agreement around the purpose and timescales of spending this funding. This would be a substantial reputation risk for the Council and its partners, and may mean that the UKSPF grant is withdrawn and that the Council is unable to access future rounds of funding allocated through the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.

08/07/2024 - Town Centre Events Grants - Summer 2024 ref: 1738    Recommendations Approved

We will require a decision on the recommended selection for the Town Centre Event Grants Summer 2024 rounds.

Grants have been advertised and event organisers have completed applications to deliver their own event in All Saints Square. There are five grants of £1500 available, one for each Saturday in August. This is the second grant scheme the Council has run: the first was in March 2024. The purpose of these grants is to create more free public events in Rotherham Town Centre, to drive footfall, and to support independent organisers to deliver their own events.

The Events and Town Centre teams have selected five for approval, based on: quality of application; appropriateness of budget; experience; if it’s suitable for family audiences; accessibility and inclusivity; and to offer a range of creative disciplines and cultural experiences.

A decision is required so that the applicants can be notified.  This will allow time to for awardees to promote and deliver the event.

Funding for the grants has come from UKSPF funding as part of an agreed RMBC Events’ Town Centre Events’ programme, and requires no RMBC Events budget.

Specific Delegation:

(If any)

Sub scheme of Delegation - Regeneration and Environment Oct 2022: All financial matters relating to the management and delivery of cultural, leisure, green spaces, landscape design and sports services, including:

 

  • Authorisation of grants up to a value of £25000 according to the Council’s criteria for cultural, leisure and events grants

Brief Description of Decision:

1.    To award 3 Event Grants of £1,500 to support community event organisers to undertake activities in the Town Centre over a three-week period.

 

2.    It is proposed that the charges associated with the Event Application pack for events taking place on Council land are waived for any events supported through the grants programme, however a completed pack will still be required for due diligence.

 

Reasons for the Decision:

To enable financial support for small event organisers and businesses to animate the Town Centre through the summer.

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

Do Nothing – Event organisation carries a range of costs such as venue hire, marketing, equipment hire, catering and paying performers. In addition, costs associated with Council fees and charges related event application packs for events taking place on Council land can make the cost of hosting event prohibitive. Without support from the Council organisers may not have the means to organise events which stifles talent development in the community and places additional pressure on the available resources within the Council’s events team.

1.2       The Director of Legal Services is authorised to make the order.

Reasons for the Decision:

The report considers the outcome of consultations about a proposal to implement a 7.5tonne environmental weight restriction in Maltby.

 

The proposal has been developed as part of the Local Neighbourhoods Road Safety (LNRS) project, based on submissions for road safety and traffic management improvements in the Maltby East Ward. This followed receipt of requests from Ward Members, Maltby Town Council and residents.

 

A majority of the responses received supported the proposal.

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

A wider area proposal including Grange Lane was considered, but this was removed due to a no suitable alternative route for HGV’s between Holme Hall Quarry and the A631.

 

Do nothing - due to concerns raised about HGV’s in the area from Ward Members and residents, this  could not be recommended.

Brief Description of Decision:

To approve the proposed parking fee of £5 and the use of Herringthorpe Playing Fields as a temporary carpark for The Reytons’ event at Clifton Park on 6th July 2024

Reasons for the Decision:

At £5, the proposed fee is significantly lower than the fees normally charged for parking at major events (which can be in the region of £10 - £15). This was suggested for the following reasons:

·        The only other event at which parking at Herringthorpe is offered is Rotherham Show. Unlike Rotherham Show which is free to enter and specifically for Rotherham communities, this event is private and its target audience is fans of the band who may be coming from outside Rotherham borough. Ticket prices for the event are £50.65

·        It offered the opportunity for the Council to test the feasibility of running music events of this nature within the park and at the same time achieve sufficient revenue from the event to recover the anticipated revenue cost of hosting it.

·        In setting the fee lower than other concert venues, it is hoped to encourage concert-goers to use the designated parking rather than parking on the street which could create traffic management problems and cause a nuisance to local residents

 

Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

-         Alternative site. There is no valid alternative site which could cater for the volume of cars expected.

-         Offer free parking.  There is a need to recoup the costs of hosting the event and a modest charge is a way to achieve this.

-         Charge more.  There’s a need to incentivise use of the event car park in order to discourage on-street parking and reduce the risk of nuisance to local residents.

Conflicts of interest declared by any Executive Member consulted by the decision maker which relates to the decision:

Cllr Sheppard, Cabinet Member for Social Inclusion declared a conflict of interest as he has already purchased tickets for the event
