-     Task and Finish Groups (TFGs): The terms of reference for the Corporate Plan TFG presented to the Committee each year were broadly the same and the Committee could amend if they wished.  In formulating the TFG it was helpful for the whole Committee to have a broad understanding of the projects being monitored to help direct the TFGs in terms of where they should be scrutiny is best placed.  The Corporate Plan was available to all members to view if they wished to view the Council’s priorities.  When considering the Terms of reference, members would be able to identify the topics that the TFG should be concentrating on.  Officers undertook to provide the Committee with the terms of reference for the three TFGs.

-     Sickness Level Report - It was felt that a deeper investigation was required, in particular concerning staff workloads, which were considered a strategic issue:  Mrs Rudziak explained that the Committee’s discussions had resulted in the Absence Management procedure being revised and suggested that members wait to see the impact of the revisions before deciding if more work was required.  It was noted that sickness levels were already falling.  Mr Hyland undertook to circulate the papers previously circulated to the Committee so that members could see the work previously considered.  Add update report for six months’ time.

-     There should be more communication between the rural Midhurst, Selsey and Petworth vision delivery plans and the City Chichester Vision, with the sharing of ideas as some were relevant to both the rural and city areas, with equal focus on all:  Mrs Rudziak suggested that the Committee could add this as a future item in itself for the Committee to consider to see if there were any further particular issues that required further investigation.  The issue would be discussed further outside of the meeting, to include input from the Marketing and Communications Team, concerning communication and the perception that the Council was ‘citycentric’ and a paper reported to the Committee at an appropriate time.

It was suggested that members of the Council could promote items and talk to the parishes.  There could also be some involvement from the Communications Team. The Committee would like to encourage the public to see the scrutiny it was undertaking and to ask questions.

-     WSCC Highways Infrastructure – Current poor air quality areas and also the effect the planned infrastructure works would have on air quality: Officers advised that West Sussex Highways could be invited to the Committee to contribute to the Air Quality Action Plan item in respect of their WSCC Road Audit, Traffic Plan and the implementation of the different highways schemes.   It was noted that the various road traffic audits fed into the County and District Joint Air Quality Working Group.    Mrs Purnell addressed the Committee from the audience to advise that observers at the County local area committees were able to raise these issues at the meetings and ask what WSCC could do to alleviate the issues.  The Chairman advised that there were two aspects to this topic, the first was the District Council’s Air Quality Action Plan and the second was the air quality that was the responsibility of WSCC.  It was agreed that this topic would be worked on outside of the meeting to ensure both the District and County issues were dealt with properly.  Add to January.

-     Southern Gateway timing of meetings: Daytime public meetings about the project were likely to affect shopkeepers’ attendance.  Mrs Rudziak advised that they would be given other opportunities to be provided with the details, including at the Annual business rates meeting, and reports on the High Street would be considered in the next 6 months.  It was suggested that members speak to individual shopkeepers and report their views back.

-     Evening Meetings: The Chairman advised that, with regard to the involvement of the public and businesses in Committee business, where appropriate meetings should be held in the evenings.
