Additional Resourcing Implications - FEP 2763

Minutes:

The Commissioner introduced the report, stressing that this report did not comment on the resources available at the time of the incident at Grenfell Tower, which was subject to a public inquiry.  The report contained an initial assessment of the extra specialist equipment and support LFEPA required to ensure the fire service is fully prepared for the challenges ahead.  It was noted that some of these items would require a procurement process and the Chair asked that progress be reported back to the Committee.

 

In response to questions it was acknowledged that the Authority had some reserves but if additional funding was not received from central government for this equipment, the budget gap was likely to increase significantly over the next four years. 

 

It was noted that officers were reviewing the actions in LSP6 and the possible effect on the 2017/18 Budget and would be reporting back in the autumn. This would include flexible crewing on which it was noted positive work was taking place with the FBU.

 

Officers confirmed that discussions were ongoing with regard to ULEZ charges for the fire service and would be reported back to Members in due course.

 

The Commissioner stated she believed the proposed increase in the establishment of Deputy Assistant Commissioners from 12 to 16 to provide greater resilience within the operational top management group would be sufficient.  Nevertheless the Chair indicated that if there was a need to revisit this, officers should report back. 

 

Following further discussion the motion was moved by the Chair – That the Committee:

 

  1. Notes the transfer of £6.8m into a new earmarked reserve to temporarily fund the initial revenue costs as set out in Table 1 of the report (FEP 2763);

 

  1. Agrees that officers can progress items R1 to R11 in Table 1 of the report, using funding from that reserve; and

 

  1. Notes the impact of the four year budget gap of up to £30.3m set out in Table 2 of the report.

 

The motion was seconded by Andrew Dismore AM, put and agreed.

 

Resolved – accordingly.
