Results Updated 16 Feb 2012

Thank you very much for all comments submitted to the savings proposals consultation. The staff and public consultation process have now concluded.  

Elected members have considered the final reports on this proposal including the staff and public views gathered during the consultation period. The decisions made are detailed below:

The grant to Rochdale Town Centre Management Company will be reduced.

This represents a 12% reduction in Rochdale Town Centre Management Company’s income but should have limited impact on the support that is provided to local companies.  The reduction means that the company will not pay Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) to maintain the town centre CCTV cameras.   This will in future be covered under the contract that the Community Safety service holds with RBH.

Proposed full year saving 2012/13: £11,300

Cabinet Decision: To be implemented as originally proposed

Overview

This proposal reduces the grant to Rochdale Town Centre Management Company.

Although this represents a significant reduction in Rochdale Town Centre Management Company’s income (12%), it should have limited impact on the support that is provided to local companies.  The reduction in funding will mean that the company is no longer able to pay Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH) to maintain the town centre CCTV cameras.  However, maintenance of these cameras should be covered under the contract that the Community Safety service holds with RBH.

The indicative saving for this proposal is £11,300
