9. Questions from Members of the Council

Any views or opinions expressed in the question set out in this Agenda paper are those of the person submitting the question and do not necessarily reflect the position, views or opinions of the Council.

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Bainbridge:

“The West of Carlisle is witnessing house building at a rate not seen since the 1960’s. Several hundred properties have been built, several hundred more given permission and several thousand more are due to be built over the course of the Carlisle Local Plan.

Increasing demand on GP Primary Care is a concern of many residents, and the concern of residents is that demand will overtake capacity. GP investment into modern developments on Eastern Way and in the North of Carlisle are welcome - does the Portfolio Holder agree that the West of Carlisle is approaching the point where it needs similar GP infrastructure investment?

What steps are being taken by Carlisle City Council in partnership with NHS England and the North Cumbria Care Commissioning Group to assess current GP capacity in the West of Carlisle? Have sites presently been identified as potential GP practice locations and what efforts are being made to market these to potential GP practitioner businesses?”

C.08/22

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services reported the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Bainbridge:

“The West of Carlisle is witnessing house building at a rate not seen since the 1960’s. Several hundred properties have been built, several hundred more given permission and several thousand more are due to be built over the course of the Carlisle Local Plan.

Increasing demand on GP Primary Care is a concern of many residents, and the concern of residents is that demand will overtake capacity. GP investment into modern developments on Eastern Way and in the North of Carlisle are welcome - does the Portfolio Holder agree that the West of Carlisle is approaching the point where it needs similar GP infrastructure investment?

What steps are being taken by Carlisle City Council in partnership with NHS England and the North Cumbria Care Commissioning Group to assess current GP capacity in the West of Carlisle? Have sites presently been identified as potential GP practice locations and what efforts are being made to market these to potential GP practitioner businesses?”

The Communities, Health and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder responded that as the Local Planning Authority, Carlisle City Council had a key role to play in identifying and supporting the delivery of the physical infrastructure requirements as part of any future planned housing growth. 

To support the now adopted Local Plan and its housing allocations, the Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) was drawn together with the full input from a range of infrastructure providers including the Cumbria Care Commissioning Group (CCG) and the Cumbria Joint Strategic Needs Assessment.   That process concluded there would be no major deficits in the physical provision of health care facilities buildings across the district and that the growth plans for Carlisle were in line with the CCG’s own investment plans.  Hence, no additional sites for GP practices had been specifically identified within the Plan, although generic policies supported the provision of new care facilities should they be required in the future. 

The infrastructure planning requirements were kept under review and the City Council was currently in dialogue with the CCG to update the position with regards to the emerging Local Plan for St Cuthbert’s Garden Village.  Based on the scale of planned growth for the Garden Village, the emerging Local Plan would need to identify land for new health care infrastructure

The Portfolio Holder stated that as it stood, it would appear that any existing capacity issues were less a result of the physical number and location of health facilities buildings but more one of the lack of trained and qualified general practitioners and other NHS staff needed to service any new practice within those practices to meet the demands arising from those moving into the homes.  However, this was not just specific to west Carlisle and was a recognised problem across other areas of Cumbria and in fact the whole of the UK.

The Council enjoyed a positive relationship with colleagues in the NHS and North Cumbria Care commissioning Group who were regular attendees at the Healthy City Steering Group at the City Council which the Portfolio Holder chaired.  There was an ongoing working relationship with the NHS and CCG exploring ways through which staffing capacity could be raised in the Carlisle Area for the needs of all Carlisle Residents. The Portfolio Holder reported that she had spoken to an officer at the Care Commissioning Group today who confirmed that the problem was one of a national lack of qualified staff Doctors and other NHS practitioners to service any new facility in the city.

The Portfolio Holder and Officers were also in correspondence with the University and had face to face meetings with the Dean of Health Facilities at the University of Cumbria to grow our own Health Staff, this was ongoing work.

There was a shortage nationally of GPs and to add to this a problem with the age profiling meant a large number were due to retire within the next few years.  The Government had been aware of the problem and asked Universities to increase their intake of medical students which they had done a few years back but it took 7 years from start to finish for a GP to qualify.

The Communities, Health and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder confirmed to the questioner that the City Council was working with its partners on the issue and would do what it could to facilitate any application for a new practice if and when that happened.  She would continue to have this as an agenda item on the Healthy City Steering Group and report back to Council if there was any change in the current position.

In accordance with Procedure Rule 11.6, Councillor Bainbridge asked the Communities, Health and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder if the health care capacity for the whole of the City would be taken into consideration in the formulation of the St Cuthbert's Garden Village Local Plan or if it would use a snap shot of the capacity in the local area to the development.

The Communities, Health and Wellbeing Portfolio Holder responded that consultation was taking place regarding the health provision at the Garden Village.  A detailed and inclusive consultation would be carried out on the whole infrastructure and health care provision was a priority.

14. Notice of Motion

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 12, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following motion submitted on notice by Councillor Alcroft:

“This Council notes:

- That analysis of the 2019 Local Election results by the Fawcett Society found that only 35% of councillors in England are women, up 1% since 2018. Of the seats that were up for election in 2018, 38% went to women, up just 3 percentage points on 2014 when these seats were last contested;
That the role of a councillor should be open to all, regardless of their background, and that introducing a maternity and parental leave policy is a step towards encouraging a wider range of people to become councillors, and is also a step to encourage existing councillors who may want to start a family to remain as councillors;
That parental leave must apply to parents regardless of their gender, and that it should also cover adoption leave to support those parents who choose to adopt.

 This Council resolves:

- To adopt a maternity and parental leave policy to give all councillors an entitlement to parental leave after giving birth or adopting;
To ensure that councillors with children are supported as appropriate.


     Draft Maternity and Parental Leave Policy for Carlisle City Council Members


- This Policy sets out Members’ entitlement to maternity, paternity, shared parental and adoption leave and relevant allowances for Members of Carlisle City Council.

 

    - Introduction
It also sets out the obligations of Members taking Maternity or Parental leave. The objective of the policy is to ensure that insofar as possible Members are able to take appropriate leave at the time of birth or adoption, that both parents are able to take leave, and that reasonable and adequate arrangements are in place to provide cover during any period of leave taken.
Improved provision for new parents will contribute towards increasing the diversity of experience, age and background of local authority councils. It will also assist with retaining experienced councillors – particularly women – and making public office more accessible to individuals who might otherwise feel excluded from it.
There is at present no legal right to parental leave of any kind for
people in elected public office. This applies to MPs as well as councillors,
and is the subject of ongoing lengthy debate. These policies can therefore
only currently be implemented on a voluntary basis.
Legal advice has been taken by the Local Government Association (LGA)
on these policies, and they conform with current requirements.
Members having or adopting children should be able to avail themselves
of the best provision possible, and should be fully supported to do that.

      1. Leave Periods
1.1 Members giving birth are entitled to up to 6 months maternity leave from
the due date, with the option to extend up to 52 weeks by agreement if required.
1.2 In addition, where the birth is premature, the Member is entitled to take leave during the period between the date of the birth and the due date in addition
to the 6 months’ period. In such cases any leave taken to cover prematurity of 28 days or less shall be deducted from any extension beyond the initial 6 months.
1.3 In exceptional circumstances, and only in cases of
prematurity of 29 days or more, additional leave may be taken by agreement, and such exceptional leave shall not be deducted from the total 52 week entitlement.
1.4 Members shall be entitled to take a minimum of 2 weeks paternity leave if they are the biological father or nominated carer of their partner/spouse following the birth of their child(ren).
1.5 A Member who has made Shared Parental Leave arrangements through their employment is requested to advise the Chief Whip of these at the earliest possible opportunity. Every reasonable effort will be made to replicate such arrangements
in terms of leave.
1.6 Where both parents are Members, leave may be shared up to a maximum of
24 weeks for the first six months and 26 weeks for any leave agreed thereafter,
up to a maximum of 50 weeks. Special and exceptional arrangements may be made in cases of prematurity.
1.7 A Member who adopts a child through an approved adoption agency shall be entitled to take up to six months adoption leave from the date of placement,
with the option to extend up to 52 weeks by agreement if required.
1.8 Any Member who takes maternity, shared parental or adoption leave retains their legal duty under the Local Government Act 1972 to attend a meeting of the Council within a six-month period unless the Council Meeting agrees to an extended leave of absence prior to the expiration of that six month period.
1.9 Any Member intending to take maternity, paternity, shared parental
or adoption leave will be responsible for ensuring that they comply with the reasonable notice periods both in terms of the point at which the leave starts
and the point at which they return. The Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services
should set the notice periods and make them available
to Members as appropriate.

      2. Basic Allowance
2.1 All Members shall continue to receive their Basic Allowance from the
Council in full whilst on maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave.
3.1 Where a Member taking leave (other than paternity leave) is a portfolio-holder, shadow portfolio-holder, or holds another senior role, another Member may be appointed or elected to provide cover during the period of absence.
3.2 A Member taking leave shall return at the end of their leave period to the same post which they held before the leave began, or to an alternative post with equivalent status and remuneration. This provision does not apply if the Member taking leave is removed from their post at an Annual General Meeting of the Council whilst on leave, or if control of the Council changes during the leave period.
3.3 In all cases it shall be the responsibility of the Chief Whip, in consultation (in the case of multi-Member wards) with relevant Ward colleagues of the Member taking leave to ensure that casework, surgeries and other necessary Ward activities are covered during the period of leave.
3.4 The Chief Whip and Ward colleagues should ensure throughout a leave period that contact is maintained with the Member taking leave
and that all reasonable measures are taken to provide support.
3.5 Members taking leave should ensure that they respond to
reasonable requests for information as promptly as possible, and that they keep their Group informed and updated in relation to intended dates of return and requests for extension of leave.

     4. Resigning from Office and Elections
4.1 If a Member decides to leave office at the end of their maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave they must notify the Chief Whip and the
Council at the earliest possible opportunity. Payment of the basic allowance will cease from the effective resignation date.
4.2 If an election is held during the Member’s maternity, paternity, shared parental or adoption leave and they are not re-elected, or decide not to stand for
re-election, their basic allowance will cease from the Monday after the election
date when they would technically leave office.”

Councillor Alcroft moved and Councillor Wills seconded the motion.

Councillor Alcroft then elaborated upon the reasons for the submission of the motion.

Councillor Bainbridge gave notice of an amendment, copies of which were tabled:

This Council notes:

- That analysis of the 2019 Local Election results by the Fawcett Society found that only 35% of councillors in England are women, up 1% since 2018. Of the seats that were up for election in 2018, 38% went to women, up just 3 percentage points on 2014 when these seats were last contested;

 This Council resolves:

This council agrees to investigate the issue of adopting a maternity and paternity leave policy.

However rather than at this stage accepting a preprepared policy from the LGA, it will refer the matter to Carlisle City Council’s Independent Renumeration Panel, as established through The Local Authorities (Members Allowances) (England) Regulations of 2003. It will request that they investigate the following:-

- To adopt a maternity and parental leave policy to give all councillors an entitlement to parental leave after giving birth or adopting; either through the adoption of LGA guidance, or through establishing our own policy as other Councils have done.

- To ensure that Councillors with children are supported as appropriate, whilst wishing that as a result of any changes, Councillors do not receive a more advantageous maternity and paternity policy than is presently available to employees of Carlisle City Council.

Councillor Bainbridge outlined, in some detail, the reasons for the submission of the amendment.

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 14.6 Councillor Alcroft sought clarification as to whether the tabled amendment negated the original Motion.

The Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services advised that whilst the amendment did delete a lot of the original Motion, both the original Motion and the amendment sought to achieve the adoption of a maternity/paternity policy and therefore the amendment did not negate the original Motion.

Substantial debate ensued, during which various Members expressed their support for / opposition to the amendment.


During the debate the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services advised Council that all Members already had the rights set out in the Motion, the Motion codified the rights but they were not new or additional rights.

Having considered the amendment and the discussion the mover of the original amendment, Councillor Alcroft agreed to support the amendment so that the process of producing and adopting a policy could start as soon as possible.

Following voting, the amendment to the original Motion was CARRIED.

No further debate took place.

Following a further vote, the substantive Motion, as set out below was CARRIED.

"
This council agrees to investigate the issue of adopting a maternity and paternity leave policy.

However rather than at this stage accepting a preprepared policy from the LGA, it will refer the matter to Carlisle City Council’s Independent Renumeration Panel, as established through The Local Authorities (Members Allowances) (England) Regulations of 2003. It will request that they investigate the following:-

- To adopt a maternity and parental leave policy to give all councillors an entitlement to parental leave after giving birth or adopting; either through the adoption of LGA guidance, or through establishing our own policy as other Councils have done.

- To ensure that Councillors with children are supported as appropriate, whilst wishing that as a result of any changes, Councillors do not receive a more advantageous maternity and paternity policy than is presently available to employees of Carlisle City Council."
