This Action Plan has been prepared through consultation with a range of organisations and specialists within the Isle of Wight BAP partnership. It covers a ten-year period from 2005-2015, with a review in 2010. This plan sets out the importance and benefits of the natural environment, and proposes actions to enhance community and individual paticipation. A series of action plancs covering the major habitat types on the Island has been produced in the period 2002-2004, and some species plans are also in preperation.

This list represents a “Forward Plan” for property and gives an indication only of what premises may be brought forwards for
disposal. Its purpose is to enable transparency in the disposal process. Inclusion of a property on this list does not guarantee that it will be
declared surplus and offered for disposal (for sale or to let). Please do not assume therefore that all of these properties will be sold (or let).

This policy is aimed at helping Isle of Wight Council staff deal with complaints in ways which are demonstrably consistent and fair, comply with legislation and best practice, and in line with the Eco-Island Sustainable Community Strategy 2008-2020, the Council’s Corporate Plan and specifically the Council’s priorities of ‘Putting the Customer First’ and ‘Improving our Reputation with Residents, Visitors and Local Businesses’. It is an important and visible sign that the Council listens to and values customer feedback.



This policy recognises the statutory duties placed on the Council by the Local Authority Social Services and National Health Services Complaints (England) Regulations 2009, and The Children Act 1989 Representations Procedure (England).

Local Authorities are required under the Childcare Act 2006, Section 6 to ensure that there is sufficient, quality, flexible, sustainable childcare for parents and carers The Childcare Act 2006 defines childcare sufficiency as ‘sufficient to meet the requirement of parents in the (Local Authority’s) area who require childcare in order to enable them:

 

a) To take up or remain in work

b) To undertake education or training which could reasonably be expected to assist them to obtain work.

c) May have regard to any childcare which they expect to be available outside their area.

 

In order to meet the sufficiency duty local authorities are required to undertake a detailed assessment of the supply of, and demand for, childcare in their area. Qa Research was commissioned to undertake the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment on behalf of the Local Authority. The assessment included research and consultation with parents / carers, children and young people, employers, and providers.

 

This document presents the key findings of the assessment in line with nine indicators of sufficiency:

 

  • Sufficiency of Places
  • Range of Provision
  • Quality
  • Flexibility
  • Accessibility (geographical issues)
  • Knowledge and Information
  • Affordability
  • Inclusivity/Meeting Particular Needs
  • Sustainability

The Child Poverty Act 2010 enshrined in law the commitment to eradicate child poverty in the UK by 2020 and placed a duty on local authorities to:

•work with relevant agencies and named partners such as: Police, transport authorities, Primary Care Trust, Job Centre Plus - to reduce and mitigate the effects of poverty;

•prepare and publish a local Child Poverty Needs Assessment - to understand the drivers of child poverty and characteristics of those living in poverty;

•prepare and publish a Joint Child Poverty Needs Strategy - setting out the measures the Local Authority and named partners propose to take to reduce and mitigate the effects of child poverty

 

The Needs Assessment:

•will provide evidence and context for developing a strategic approach to child poverty by providing a deeper understanding of:

•the extent and distribution of child poverty on the Isle of Wight;

•the key drivers and characteristics of families living in poverty;

•the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to tackling child poverty

Minutes from the Community Safety Partnership meeting held on November 30th 2015

Where a person is liable to pay council tax, the Isle of Wight Council has powers to reduce liability in relation to individual cases or class(es) that it may determine and where national discounts and exemption cannot be applied.  The council will consider using its powers for any council tax payer in exceptional circumstances, where there is evidence of financial hardship or personal circumstances that justify a reduction in council tax liability.































































































































There are financial implications to awarding any discounts other than those currently available under statutory legislation and the financial burden of Section 13a discounts has to be met through an increase in the general level of council tax for other payers.

The Isle of Wight Crematorium fully understands the additional emotional strain that is being placed upon grieving families who have just lost a loved one during these unprecedented times.

In order to protect our staff, grieving families and friends, and the NHS during the past few weeks we have introduced restrictions on the number of people who are able to attend a funeral at the crematorium to maintain social distancing measures.

We are very sorry that we have had to put these restrictions in place and aim to keep the crematorium chapel open for as long as possible to allow close family to celebrate the life of their loved one.

We have also had to change the way in which a chapel funeral service is conducted as a direct result of national restrictions.

This leaflet contains guidance of what you can currently expect when making funeral arrangements and attending a cremation service.

Working as part of the Age Friendly Island partnership we have developed a set of ‘out and about cards’ part-funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, to help people move towards the ‘new normal’. 

The cards are to help people, feel more confident when they are out and about, having to social distance and follow other covid-secure measures that are in place. 

These cards are for people who:

Find social distancing challenging. For example they may have a visual impairment or have difficulty in understanding social distancing instructions.

Are exempt from wearing a face covering under the Government Guidance.

Find the use of face coverings by other people challenging. Face coverings make communication difficult for those who rely on lip reading and facial expressions

Feel they need time and space. They may have been shielding and are just starting to get back out and about.

Please download and print the cards to use as needed.
