Resolved unanimously – That the gratitude of this Court be extended to:-

 

Stuart John Fraser, C.B.E.

 

for his tireless dedication and outstanding service to the Ward of Coleman Street, the City Corporation, and the City of London over the past twenty-six years.

 

Elected to the Court of Common Council in 1993, Stuart’s extraordinary period of service has been marked by significant contributions not just to the City Corporation and the Square Mile, but to the financial and professional services industry and the United Kingdom as a whole.

 

It would be quicker to name the committees on which Stuart has not served during his time on the Court, such has been the breadth and range of his commitment. However, it is, perhaps, his key chairmanships which have left the greatest legacy, and for which we owe Stuart our particular gratitude.

 

Stuart’s time as Chairman of Planning and Transportation saw a number of achievements which fundamentally changed the look and feel of the City, positioning it for continued success. Perhaps most notably, he oversaw the approval of 30 St Mary Axe, giving impetus to the race to build tall buildings in the east of the City and leaving him with the moniker of ‘the Gherkin Chairman’. Beyond this, he also oversaw a resolution to the challenges of the “wobbly” Millennium bridge and the opening of the redeveloped Paternoster Square.

 

Building on the experience of one senior chairmanship, Stuart subsequently took on the mantle of Chairman of Policy and Resources at a critical time, with the economic downturn that occurred at the end of 2008 putting the City of London’s financial services industry in a difficult position. Stuart responded to these events with remarkable calmness and humility, allowing him to connect with key stakeholders and ensure the City’s message was successfully conveyed. Having

Resolutions of the Annual Wardmotes pdf icon PDF 70 KB

To consider Resolutions of the Annual Wardmotes from the Wards of Aldersgate,

Cheap, Cripplegate, Dowgate, Farringdon Within, Portsoken, and Tower.

 ...  view the full agenda text for item 10.

Minutes:

Resolutions of the Annual Wardmotes were considered as follows:-

 

From the Ward of Aldersgate

“That this Wardmote declares that it has no confidence in the City Corporation’s current “standards” policy and practice, and calls upon the Court of Common Council to make immediate and fundamental reforms so that:

 

(a)    our elected representatives are free to speak and vote on our behalf, including on matters in which they have a declared interest (unless the matter uniquely or especially affects them), so that we have the same level of representation as residents of other local authorities; and

 

(b)    our elected representatives do not feel intimidated into not speaking or voting on matters that affect us because they fear referral by the Corporation to a complaints process that has proved to be not fit for purpose – or worse, referral to the police – simply because they have a declared interest in a matter, even though they can derive no financial benefit from it.”

 

Resolved – That the resolution be referred to the Standards Committee for consideration and any necessary action.

 

From the Ward of Cheap

(i)    “That at the last Wardmote great concern was expressed regarding the number of people sleeping rough in the City of London. It was noted that during the period October to December 2018 individual rough sleepers increased significantly by 99 people to 212, indicating an increase of 87% from Q2. This compares with only 6% across London and is well above that of all other comparative local authorities according to a recent report from the Director of Children’s Services. The Wardmote welcomed the creating of a new Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Sub-Committee and supports its members to call upon the City of London Corporation to take urgent action to address the complex issues linked to rough sleeping

 ...  view the full agenda text for item 11.

Minutes:

The Court received a report on measures introduced by Parliament which might have an effect on the services provided by the City Corporation as follows:-

 

Statutory Instruments

The Tenant Fees Act 2019 (Commencement No. 3) Regulations 2019 S.I. No. 857

The Regulations bring the Tenant Fees Act 2019 into force in part from 15 April and in full from 1 June 2019. The Act prohibits landlords and letting agents from charging tenants letting fees. The Act will be enforced by the Court of Common Council acting in its capacity as a weights and measures authority.

 

The European Parliamentary Elections (Returning Officers’ and Local Returning Officers’ Charges) (Great Britain and Gibraltar) Order 2019 S.I. No. 886

The Order enables payments to be made for the services and expenses of returning officers and local returning officers in connection with the 2019 European Parliamentary elections and specifies the maximum recoverable amount in respect of the City of London as £22,206.

 

The Town and Country Planning (Permitted Development, Advertisement and Compensation Amendments) (England) Regulations 2019 S.I. No. 907

The Regulations make amendments to the definition of transport undertakers, make permanent certain temporary permitted development rights to enlarge dwelling houses, and impose standards for electric charging points used to recharge vehicles. New permitted development rights are created by the Regulations to allow for the change of use of a building from shops, financial and professional services, betting shops, and launderettes, to be converted to offices. Additionally, a new permitted development right is created to allow buildings used for hot food takeaways to be converted to a dwelling house. Of additional City relevance is the removal of the permitted development right to install or adapt public phone boxes, which were frequently installed to enable advertisements that would otherwise have been prohibited.

 

The Regulations apply to the

Questions

Minutes:

Carbon Emissions and Environmental Issues

Alderman Alison Gowman asked a question of the Chair of the Policy and Resources Committee concerning initiatives on climate change.

 

Responding, the Chair advised that the City Corporation had a Responsible Business Strategy which set out its commitment to a healthier planet. The Chair also listed some of the initiatives concerning climate change, such as the City Corporation’s new transport strategy, the Green Finance Initiative and the new set of London-specific proposals which will provide new adoptive powers for London local authorities to control emissions.

 

The Chair, whilst agreeing that some of these initiatives had been uncoordinated, advised Members of the new officer group aiming to deliver a Climate Action Strategy, which would report back to the Policy and Resources Committee on all the City Corporation’s activity in this area.

 

In response to a supplementary question from Alderman Alison Gowman asking how the City Corporation would seek to minimise carbon emissions, the Chair advised that the Property Investment Board was shortly to commence a review of all the City Corporation’s investment properties. This was with a view to establishing performance criteria and prioritising refurbishment to improve energy efficiency where required. The Policy Chair also reported that she had asked officers to look at the financial implications of accelerating the Carbon Reduction Plan on operational properties, so as to achieve the targets prior to 2025.

 

In response to a further supplementary question from Andrien Meyers which asked about a City Corporation-wide policy on responsible investing, the Policy Chair explained that a section of the Responsible Business Strategy was designated to this. She added that the City Corporation had demonstrated its commitment to this area by signing up to the United Nation’s Principles of Responsible Investment. Further, the Investment Committee had recently endorsed a proposal to undertake
