5511510  Ward Councillors Reports (For Information Only)

                Ward Councillor Tony Galbraith:

                (i)ERYC Snow Emergency – The ERYC Winter Plan is being carried out, however,

                there are clearly inadequacies in the plan and ERYC have been too slow and not up to

    the task. There is to be an Overview & Scrutiny meeting to be held in early February

    2011 for the Environment & Transport Committee and it was suggested that South

    Cave Parish Council send a letter to the Committee raising concerns, difficulties

    experienced and any suggestions for the future.

    (ii)Elloughton-cum-Brough Parish Council have had to use reserve funds along with

    the full award of ERYC grant monies in order to help with snow clearance, but have

    had to increase their precept by 1.5% for 2011/12 because of this.

    (iii)The Overview & Scrutiny Committee for safeguarding adults have introduced a

    better reporting system.  This has highlighted more cases of abuse of adults,

    particularly in residential care, such as neglect and physical abuse (by other residents).

    Extra training is to be introduced for care homes.

    (iv)A survey of migrant workers has been undertaken and there are an estimated three

    thousand workers in the Goole area, which is approximately 15% of the population.

    ERYC are aware of 7 registered ‘gang masters’ in the East Riding which has helped to

    reduce abuse of workers.
