377     MEDIUM TERM FINANCIAL PLAN 2014/15 – 2017/18 (REF) –

 

Cabinet had, at its meeting on 11th August 2014, referred the draft Medium Term Financial Plan to the Scrutiny Committee for information.  The Head of Finance stated that the purpose of the Medium Term Financial Plan was to link the Council’s strategic planning process with the budget process, to ensure consistency between them, to inform Members and to suggest a way of dealing with the future financial pressures facing the Council. 

 

The draft Medium Term Financial Plan for 2014/15 – 2017/18 was attached at Appendix 1 to the report.  The Plan attempted to identify the main financial implications resulting from the increased pressure falling upon Council services, including pay and price inflation, legislative and demographic changes, and to estimate the reduced financial resources that would be available to the Council to meet these demands in light of the letter issued on 24th June 2014 by the Minister for Local Government and Government Business to all the Welsh Local Authorities regarding future funding settlements.  The Plan also attempted to match the predicted expenditure and resources and provide a framework to develop a financial strategy towards achieving a balanced budget for the next three financial years.  An Executive Summary was included at pages 2 – 6 of the Plan with the exception of the Minister’s letter, Welsh Government had also not yet given any indication of local government funding levels for 2015/16 to 2017/18. 

 

However, it was noted that the Council’s timeframe for the budget process necessitated the use of the best available information at the time if a balanced budget was to be achieved by the statutory date.  The assumptions made in the Plan were, therefore, based upon the contents of the Minister’s letter and the subsequent views of key commentators (including the Welsh Local Government Association) and the prospects for local government funding over the next few years.

 

Initial estimates presented the following picture which showed a projected savings target between 2015/16 and 2017/18 of £32m, comprising of £18m of savings already identified and £14m yet to be allocated.

The matching exercise indicated that there remained £1.3m of savings to be identified for 2015/16 and this was after already identifying £8.8m.  The achievement of the identified savings was by no means guaranteed, but failure to deliver this level of savings would significantly impact on the Council achieving its required financial strategy which would now be based on an estimated reduction of £32m by 2017/18.

 

As a result of the high level of savings required, there would be difficulties in maintaining the quality and quantity of services without exploring opportunities for collaboration and alternative forms of service delivery.  The only realistic option facing the Council in future years was to commence a programme of reshaping and transforming services.

 

To ensure that the budget set for 2015/16 continued to address the priorities of Vale residents and the Council’s service users, the budget setting process would incorporate in-depth, targeted engagement with a range of key stakeholders.  This would be a process of collaboration – with staff, trade unions, public sector partners, the voluntary sector, service recipients and the Vale’s communities (including its Town and Community Councils).  

 

A key outcome from the 2014/15 budget process was to re-examine the relative priorities between different services given the financial challenges which lay ahead and to reaffirm the specific financial strategies for Education & Schools and Social Services.  In light of the level of savings to be found by 2017/18, a further review would be necessary in order to ascertain whether it was viable to continue with these financial strategies.  

 

Other options recommended within the Plan for exploration as part of the 2015/16 budget process were:

  • Consider the results of the budget engagement process in determining priorities for future savings and service delivery
  • Review the appropriateness of the current financial strategies for Education and Schools, Social Services and Other Services
  • Review feasibility of increasing  the use of the General Fund Reserve as part of the financial strategy
  • Further reviewing the level of cost pressures with a view to services managing and reducing demand and mitigating pressures
  • Services funding their own residual cost pressures through reviewing their existing budgets and revised / alternative means of service provision
  • Services meeting their own pay and price inflation, superannuation increase etc., through reviewing their staffing structure in line with changes to service delivery and workforce planning requirements
  • Reviewing the priorities for funding statutory and non-statutory services, including establishing minimum levels of services provision
  • Pursuing options for reshaping services including means of alternative service delivery in order to attempt to maintain the level of service while reducing the cost of provision. 

In presenting the report the Head of Service advised that the Council was aware of certain issues that may impact on the Plan, for example the Housing (Wales) Bill, but that there could be others that the Council may not know about, although as soon as any new information was received the Plan would be amended as appropriate.  The Head of Service also tabled a presentation slide which referred to the Council’s current financial context i.e. where we are, the £61m savings required over 8 years, excluding schools, and future funding.  On the reverse the document detailed a graph highlighting future funding and spending for the average local authority in Wales as published by the WLGA.

 

In recognising that the next agenda item on the Committee’s agenda related to Reshaping Services, the Head of Service advised that the Council could not continue as it was and needed to look at how it provided services now and in the future to address the situation. 

 

Members queried the possibility of the Council being able to consider the use of the Education budget as part of the process, as they felt that all service areas should be included in the budget planning process and many had in their view 'been cut to the bone'.  Members also asked whether there was anything that they could do to assist with achieving the required savings.  In response the Head of Service stated that there would be hard decisions to make in the future for Members about service provision but that with regard to schools it was anticipated that Welsh Government would continue to direct the Council into how it spent that budget.  Members however, considered it was important that Education and Social Services took full part in the process and in particular it was essential that all staff be involved in the reshaping services exercise, as they may be able to offer suggestions for ways forward in the future.  Aware that many services were mandatory services, Members considered that the actual processes of how they were undertaken could be challenged and reviewed.

 

In referring to other savings suggestions for example energy aware that these were ongoing they also queried water consumption with the response that a report was currently being prepared for Cabinet and Scrutiny Committee on this matter.

 

Following consideration of the report it was subsequently

 

RECOMMENDED –

 

(1)       T H A T the quarterly monitoring reports to the Scrutiny Committee include reports on the savings achieved to date and future savings identified for each service area.

 

(2)       T H A T Cabinet be asked to ensure that the information outlined in Recommendation (1) is reported to Scrutiny Committees and Cabinet on a quarterly basis. 

 

(3)       T H A T the remaining resolutions of Cabinet be endorsed.

 

Reasons for recommendations

 

(1&2)  To allow for consideration by Members.

 

(3)       In view of the contents contained within the draft Medium Term Financial Plan.

 

           

378     RESHAPING SERVICES – A NEW CHANGE PROGRAMME FOR THE COUNCIL (REF) –

 

The report provided Members with details of the process by which the Council intended to address the challenges in the Medium Term Financial Plan and  proposed a Reshaping Services Strategy and associated change programme for the Council which was detailed at Appendix 1 to the report.

 

The Head of Performance and Development , in referring to the background to the report, advised that Central Government’s austerity drive had created a period of unprecedented financial pressures in the public sector and the Vale of Glamorgan Council’s budget had already been squeezed for 2014/15 with further substantial savings necessary in 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18.  Failure to deliver the required level of savings would not be an option for the Council and it was clear that the scale of the challenges to come would mean that business as usual, however well managed, would not be enough.  The challenge was therefore to consider alternative delivery models for services across the Council and only in this way could the Council hope to maintain a broad range of services and to an acceptable standard. 

 

The report highlighted that given the Council’s traditional low funding base (20th out of 22 local authorities in terms of funding per head of population) the Authority was well versed in working together to find savings and had a long established track record of achievement in this respect which would stand it in good stead in tackling future challenges.  It was anticipated that the programme as outlined would be driven and largely conducted in-house with existing staff.  However, additional external expertise would be required to advise in areas where in-house expertise was lacking, particularly in untried (for the Council) models of service delivery.  It was not possible at this preliminary stage to estimate what the costs would be, but it was anticipated that they would be met from existing resources. 

 

In relation to consultation, the report advised that given the scale and scope of the Change Programme, it was essential that the public, the Council’s partners and staff and other stakeholders were fully involved in its development.  Proposals for undertaking engagement were outlined in Appendix 1 under 'Engagement with Stakeholders'.  The report had been discussed with trade unions, however continual engagement would be crucial to the success of the programme and the exact mechanisms for engaging staff and trade unions would be brought back to Cabinet in the Autumn 2014.  Members were informed that a special meeting of the Community Liaison Committee had been arranged to discuss the report on Wednesday 17th September and the Voluntary Sector Joint Liaison Committee would be considering the report on 23rd September 2014. 

 

Members, in welcoming the report and the need for the Council to be radical and innovative in its thinking, raised concern about the proposed timetable of between three to five years.  The Head of Service stated that the timetable reflected the considerable amount of work required to be undertaken in order to ensure all service areas were covered and any recommendations addressed.  He also emphasised that the nature of the changes would vary widely between services; it was not simply a matter of implementing a single solution.  Some Members raised the issue of competitive tendering and the need to raise awareness of the issues facing the Council in order that the implications and budget situation of the Council could be understood by all. 

 

It was further suggested that the risks of each of the models would need to be carefully explained in conjunction with the benefits.  It was recognised that the reshaping services programme would be a complicated programme that would require careful consideration, with Members agreeing that staff engagement with the process would be essential to its success.  Following the comment that any suggestions by officers would be channelled through the Scrutiny and Cabinet process, it was subsequently

 

RECOMMENDED –

 

(1)       T H A T the proposal for a “Reshaping Services†strategy and change programme to be instituted be agreed in principle.

 

(2)       T H A T a further report be presented to the Scrutiny Committee in the Autumn providing the proposals for a more detailed way forward and apprising Members of comments received as a result of any initial engagement with stakeholders.

 

(3)       T H A T Cabinet be requested to consider developing a Communication Strategy for the Reshaping Services programme in order to educate stakeholders and encourage engagement.

 

Reasons for recommendations

 

(1&2)  To enable the Council to respond constructively to significantly diminishing resources by developing alternative means of service delivery in partnership with stakeholders.

 

(3)       In order that stakeholders can be fully apprised of the Council’s Reshaping Services programme.

 

 

379     OUTCOME AGREEMENT 2013 – 2016: END OF YEAR REPORT 2013/14 (MD) –

 

The Council had entered into four previous agreements with the Welsh Government (Policy Agreements in 2001-04 and 2004-07, an Improvement Agreement in 2008-10 and an Outcome Agreement in 2010-13).  These agreements were based on the premise that the Council would share common objectives and that agreements could be entered into to assist in achieving these objectives.  In order to reduce the reporting burden the Council only needed to report on delivery under part 1: Outcomes, this being a self-assessment of the extent to which the Council had delivered against its agreed outcomes.  The Council was not required to report under part 2: Corporate Governance, as the Welsh Government would have this information already. 

 

Appendix 1 to the report provided details of progress against actions and performance measures, along with a summary of the outcomes achieved.

 

Based on its own self-assessment, the Council had concluded that overall, the Council had been successful in achieving the majority of targets and actions relating to year 1 of the Agreement (2013/14).  A scoring of 9 out of 10 was achieved in the 'Outcomes' section however this was provisional pending negotiation with Welsh Government who would undertake their own evaluation upon receipt of ours.  A Welsh Government assessment of between 8 - 10 points would enable the Council to secure full payment for the outcomes section (70% of £1.2 million).  A small number of performance targets (shaded) although had  not been achieved reported that improvements had been made on the previous year's performance in some instances. Also, a few targets had been miscalculated resulting in performance missing target by some margin.  For those targets that were miscalculated, these would need to be re-negotiated with Welsh Government for the 2014/15 period.

 

In all of the above instances, proactive action was being taken to ensure all targets were achieved for 2014/15.  Quarterly monitoring of progress against year 2 targets in the Agreement would ensure performance remained on track.  First quarter performance reports were due to be reported to CMT, Cabinet and Scrutiny Committees during September / October 2014.  

 

The five outcome areas for the Vale were reported as:

  • Outcome 1: Support the local economy
  • Outcome 2: Increasing school achievement
  • Outcome 3: Improving the lives of older people
  • Outcome 4: Improving social housing
  • Outcome 5: Reducing landfill.

Welsh Government set aside £31m for 2013/14 for the Outcome Agreement for the whole of Wales.  If the Council was fully successful in achieving its intended outcomes and had no statutory recommendations or interventions over the life of the Agreement, it could expect to receive £1.2m each year in an unhypothecated grant. 

 

Following consideration of the report, it was

 

RECOMMENDED –

 

(1)       T H A T the achievement of Year 1 outcomes to date be noted.

 

(2)       T H A T the Scrutiny Committee undertakes closer scrutiny during 2014/15 of the areas where the Council had not achieved its actions and targets and that it takes proactive action to ensure that they are achieved in 2014/15, as detailed in Appendix 1 to the report).

 

Reasons for recommendations

 

(1)       To recognise the achievement of the outcomes listed in the Agreement.

 

(2)       To ensure that the Council is fully successful in achieving all agreed outcomes in order for Welsh Government to release the performance incentive grant.

 

 

380     IMPROVEMENT PLAN PART 2: ANNUAL REVIEW OF PERFORMANCE 2013/14 (MD) –

 

The Scrutiny Committee was requested to endorse the Improvement Plan for 2013/14.  The Draft Improvement Plan Part 2: Annual Review of Performance 2013/14 contained performance and information for Improvement Objectives that had been agreed in June 2013.

 

The Head of Performance and Development informed Members that the Part 2 Improvement Plan attached at Appendix 1 to the report was a document primarily looking back over 2013/14 and contained key performance measures, targets and actions which helped demonstrate progress towards the achievement of the Council’s Improvement Objectives. 

 

Although the Plan was substantially complete, further minor amendments would be required following changes to performance information provided by the Local Government Data Unit and from proof reading.  However, based on the Council’s overall assessment, it was concluded that the Council had been successful in achieving the majority of the positive outcomes intended in its Improvement Objectives for 2013/14, despite challenging financial times.  Overall, 7 out of the 8 Improvement Objectives that had been set for the year had been judged to have been successfully achieved with 1 partially achieved.  A summary of the conclusions of the 8 Improvement Objectives for the Vale was identified in paragraphs 8 to 19 of the report.

 

In referring further to the Appendix, the Head of Service advised that pages 65 to 86 detailed how the Council had performed against the 2013/14 national performance data set in comparison with the previous year and with other local authorities in Wales.  Data had been collected and reported on 44 national performance indicators (PIs) and, of these, 43 had data that could be compared with the previous year.  The key highlights included:

  • in total 9 indicators had achieved the best possible performance in 2013/14. Of these 9 best PIs, 6 of these indicators continued to maintain their best possible performance (either 100% or 0%) when compared to the previous year. There was only one indicator in 2013/14 that did not continue to maintain the best possible performance when compared to 2012/13.
  • 23 indicators showed an improvement (based on their PI value).  This was up on the previous year where 21 indicators had shown an improvement (based on their PI value).
  • 14 indicators showed a decline (based on their PI value) during 2013/14 compared with 10 indicators that showed a decline during 2012/13.
  • 8 indicators that had previously shown improvement in 2012/13 (based on their PI value) now showed a decline in their performance for 2013/14.
  • 6 Indicators during 2013/14 had shown no change in their performance when compared to 2012/13.
  • Percentage wise: 52% of comparable indicators improved, 14% maintained the best possible performance and 32% declined.  In comparison 70% of comparable indicators in Wales improved as did 74.4% within the South East Wales Region.  The Vale's performance was better than Wales in 25 (58%) of comparable indicators and similarly in 24 (56%) when compared against the South East Wales Region.

A breakdown of how the Council performed in each of the quartiles against other Welsh local authorities in 2013/14 was as follows:

  • 43% (19) indicators were in the upper quartile of performance.
  • 36% (16) indicators were in the middle quartile of performance.
  • 20% (9) indicators were in the lower quartile of performance.
  • This performance showed an improvement from the previous year in which the Vale achieved 17 top quartile, 11 middle quartile and 15 bottom quartile performing indicators.

Members were further informed that the report was being presented to the Scrutiny Committee (Corporate Resources) as the lead Scrutiny Committee due to the fact that publication of comparative information had been embargoed by the Wales Audit Office until 3rd September 2014.  Officers had therefore been unable to report to some of the Scrutiny Committees in time and the decision had been made to refer the report to Corporate Resources as the lead Scrutiny Committee, to Cabinet and subsequently to Full Council.  The Improvement Plan had to be published by 30th October 2014. 

 

In considering the report the Chairman and Members referred to the following concerns:

  • pages 35 to 37 – performance in respect of Disabled Facilities Grants (DFGs).  Members, aware that a further report was to be presented to the Scrutiny Committee over the forthcoming months in relation to DFGs, requested that the data information contained within the Improvement Plan be also detailed in that report for Members’ further consideration.  A further request was that the report also include detailed information in relation to the process / timescale for the receipt of applications, referral to OT and work undertaken. The Head of Service for Performance and Development also advised that the Wales Audit Office was currently undertaking a review of DFGs which would include consideration of the PIs for the service area.
  • With regard to the PIs in respect of NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training), the Chairman referred to the Welsh average of 3.7% and the direction of travel for the Vale worsening.  He suggested that further detail in relation to this PI be presented to the Scrutiny Committees (Lifelong Learning) and (Corporate Resources).
  • For Adult Social Services, again the direction of travel was deteriorating for the Vale when compared to the Wales average and Members requested that the Director of Social Services or his substitute attend a future of the Committee regarding this issue.
  • Similar concerns were raised in relation to Children’s Services regarding resources and future implications and again Members requested officer attendance a future meeting of the Committee in relation to this matter.
  • In referring to Leisure Services and the number of visits to the local authority leisure centres, it was suggested that the Scrutiny Committee (Economy and Environment) consider the implications of the direction of travel in relation to this PI.  The Democratic and Scrutiny Committee Services Officer advised that the Scrutiny Committee (Economy and Environment) was due to receive a report in respect of such matters in the next few months. 

In view of the fact the timetable had not allowed all Scrutiny Committees to consider the report, Members suggested that the relevant Scrutiny Committees where issues had been raised as outlined above, be given the opportunity to consider this Committee’s concerns.  

 

Having considered the report it was subsequently,

 

RECOMMENDED –

 

(1)       T H A T the Improvement Plan for 2013/14 be endorsed, and referred to Cabinet and Council for consideration and approval.

 

(2)       T H A T having regard to the comments referred to above, the relevant officers with responsibility for Disabled Facilities Grants, NEETs, Children’s and Adult Services be requested to attend a future meeting of the Scrutiny Committee, to advise on the issues affecting the performance in these areas in relation to the direction of travel as contained within the report.

 

(3)       T H A T the report and the comments of this Scrutiny Committee be referred to the relevant Scrutiny Committees responsible for the service areas for Disabled Facilities Grants, NEETs, Children’s and Adult Services for their further consideration.

 

(4)       THAT the comments of the Scrutiny Committee as above be referred to Cabinet for their consideration.

 

Reasons for recommendations

 

(1)       In order that the Council’s Improvement Plan can be considered and approved in the agreed timetable set by the Wales Audit Office. 2014.

 

(2)       In order for Members to be informed of the issues facing the service areas and the reasons for the deteriorating directions of travel.

 

(3)       In order that the relevant Scrutiny Committees can consider the report and the issues and challenges facing the service areas and the comparisons with the Welsh average.

 

(4)       To enable Cabinet to have an understanding of the views of the Scrutiny Committee (Corporate Resources).

 

 

381     REVENUE MONITORING FOR THE PERIOD 1ST APRIL 2014 TO 31ST JULY 2014 (MD) –

 

The report advised of the progress relating to revenue expenditure for the period 1st April to 31st July 2014 with the forecast for the 2014/15 revenue budget detailing a favourable variance of £365k and the Housing Revenue Account budget 2014/15 reporting to outturn on target.  The following table was also presented as detailed below:

In presenting the report it was noted that overall the Education Budget was projected to balance as at the end of March 2015, with any savings being identified between now and the year end being made available to be redirected into the School Investment Strategy or other reserves.  For Social Services the forecast was for an overspend of £800k.  In addition to increased demand for services there was also pressure on the Directorate to achieve its savings targets for 2014/15 onwards.  Visible Services and Housing Services was projected to have a balanced budget at year end, but this would be after the use of the Visible Services Reserve.  It was noted that there had been financial savings from previous years that had not yet been made and was putting pressure on the budget.  As full year savings would not be made in these areas and due to their size, it was therefore being proposed that the Visible Services Reserve be used to fund the shortfall.  The savings still to be made related to street lighting (£150k) and car parking (£340k).

 

For the Development Services budget this was currently projected to outturn within target at the year end and for the Managing Director’s area, the General Policy was forecast for a favourable variance of £1,165k as at the year end, this having arisen from a reduction in capital charges of £1,065k and an increase of external interest receivable of £100k.

 

Having considered the content of the report, it was subsequently

 

RECOMMENDED – T H A T the position with regard to the Authority’s 2014/15 Revenue Budget be noted.

 

Reason for recommendation

 

To apprise Members of the projected revenue outturn for 2014/15.

 

 

382     CAPITAL MONITORING REPORT FOR THE PERIOD 1ST APRIL TO 31ST JULY 2014 (MD) –

 

Appendix 1 to the report detailed the financial progress on the Capital Programme as at 31st July and for all schemes where it was evident that the full year’s budget would not be spent during the year, the relevant officers were required to provide an explanation for the shortfall which would be taken to the earliest available Cabinet meeting.

 

In referring to the report the Head of Finance made reference to the Housing Improvement Programme and budget which had been agreed by Cabinet on 24th February under Minute No. C2211 “That the Director of Resources, in consultation with the Cabinet Member responsible for Finance, be given delegated authority to make additions, deletions or transfers to or from the 2014/15 to 2018/19 Housing Capital programme as appropriateâ€.  In order to update the programme of works for the year, a delegated authority had been approved during August 2014 and the budgets shown in Appendix 1 to the report reflected these changes. 

 

For the Development Services Directorate reference was made to Section 106 Schemes and emergency powers that had been used to approve the inclusion of Section 106 monies into the Capital Programme as follows:

 

            The Herberts                                 £13,618

            20mph zone Llandough                 £20,000

 

In response to a query regarding Albert Road School, Penarth, and the delay in the works being undertaken, Members requested to receive detailed information by email for the reasons for the delay soon as possible.

 

Having considered the report, it was subsequently

 

RECOMMENDED – T H A T the position with regard to the 2014/15 Capital Programme be noted.

 

Reason for recommendation

 

To apprise Members.
