Report of the Town Clerk.
Members received a report of the Town Clerk, which updated Members on the progress in adopting and implementing recommendations developed during the January 2020 Community Trigger Review.
During the discussion on this item, the following points were noted:
· The ‘101’ service was commissioned nationally and, whilst there had been some historic problems with the service, this had improved. Members were asked to contact the Head of Community Service if they became aware of any further issues. There was a concern expressed in that the public might perceive failings within the 101 service to fall within the remit of the City Corporation or other boroughs. The officer agreed to compile the engagement undertaken on this matter and provide Members with more detail.
· Whilst there was not a suite of policies in place, Community MARACs brought all partners together. This was often the first opportunity to share information and engage in a frank discussion about an appropriate course of action, on a case by case basis. It was noted that Community Behaviour Orders were a last report; they were often framed as a supporting step and enforcement action did not always follow. Members asked the Community Protection Team to prepare a report on this matter, focusing on the mental health support aspects.
RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
