We recognised that we were going to fail to hit this target before the end of the 2002–2003 and planned to correct it early in the following year by agreeing a pilot waste analysis to be undertaken at our Edinburgh office and laboratory. Our priority this year is to continue collecting baseline waste generation information for all SEPA offices and laboratories during 2003–2004 in order that informed targets can be arrived at for 2004–2005.
The buildings without meters are landlord E Tax Depreciation Schedules controlled and we are negotiating to have meters installed. Efforts are continuing to establish baseline consumption at all SEPA sites and we will use billing data at those sites with difficult meter access or where no meter is fitted. It was not possible to hit this target without accurate baseline consumption information (see above) although we recognise that our greatest water consumption occurs at our largest sites with laboratories.
The environmental procurement strategy to include procedures for supplier environmental Target Hit assessment as part of the tender process, subject to the public sector requirements of Best Value, by end of 2002. SEPA’s procurement team implemented this procedure and suppliers are now requested to provide environmental, quality and financial data as part of the approval process. SEPA’s management team agreed a procurement environmental policy that is used as part of the basis for supplier selection and evaluation of tenders.
For 2003–2004, our procurement team have now been asked to meet a target that addresses SEPA’s purchasing decisions. Each SEPA directorate has produced an environmental performance ‘Target Attainment Plan’ as part of its operating plans for 2003–2004 with actions designed to reduce business car mileage built in. In addition, and in line with our strategic goal of reducing our equivalent emissions of carbon dioxide, we have set a new target that captures all modes of transport and is normalised against our staff compliment. A pilot SEPA Intranet site, designed to assist car-sharing to work for our staff based at our corporate office in Stirling was established during 2002–2003. Investigations are continuing into the feasibility of extending the service to staff at other offices and to our business car mileage.
Whose carries the responsibility of inspection work of property for those who want to get advantage of TDS ?
It is responsibility of authority of what is the importance of claiming tax depreciation tax department to do inspection of the property. For doing control over the illegal activity going on in the market by non expert group such steps are to be taken off by the tax department. Resistance is more likely to arise where abolition of part 3 conditions rather than being related to well grounded strategies for service improvement and or a shared agenda for flexibility is (or is perceived to be) a way of cutting costs at the expense of staff, particularly relatively low paid staff. In this context the importance of premium payments in the composition of pay of certain female dominated groups (such as care assistants and home helps) described earlier in this report (chapter 3) should be borne in mind.
We feel that resistance is also more likely where staff see themselves as victims of change rather than partners in it and success is more likely where there is a joint problem solving approach to improving service delivery rather than a confrontational or adversarial relationship. Such problem solving relationships may be absent currently and need building, something we address later. They are not likely to be fostered simply by the removal of the part 3 provisions. The Commission view of the evidence available to it, therefore, is that problems of local ‘rigidity’ are not necessarily the result of the national agreement per se. Lack of flexibility may be more perceived than real may be a question of the ability to negotiate and manage change (and local capacity on both sides), and or vested interest in the status quo, rather than the constraints of the national agreement.
It is necessary to do control on the illegal activity going on in the market because that create really bad impression of the government in the eyes of the civilians. Many restrictions are to be imposed in the process of TDS and also there is also rules and regulation which is to be implied in the TDS. The contractual terms would remain as contractual terms in individual employment contracts and abolition would not address the issue of local level capacity. This foregoing analysis however does not lead us to the view that there should be no change in this part of the national agreement. This could mean, for example, that the national agreement might embody the principle that unsocial or extra hours working should attract a premium. unless an inclusive (higher) rate of pay recognizes this, acknowledging that there may be different ways in which this could be done.
rather than stating the rate at which specified working time should be remunerated. Such consideration locally would require a joint focus on service requirements, working patterns and employee needs for flexibility in working time. Thereafter it could go to Acas. It is assumed this will be done within three months. We have not been given evidence about the extent to which this mechanism is used and our impression is that it is not much used. Pending the outcome of any renegotiation as indicated above. There may be a role for provincial councils here, as now, but it seemed to us that currently these bodies varied in the extent.
The Carcross Interagency Group, representing all local agencies with an interest in community health, education and safety, will use $3,500 in Project Yukon funding for a Family Health Project aimed at supporting personal self-care and health prevention. The Kwanlin Koyotes, a volunteer-driven outdoor recreation program for children 7 to 12 years old, will get $18,665 to build a new ski hut adjacent to the Kwanlin Dun Health Centre. Volunteers will do the labour, with the help of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation.
hese projects epitomize the character of most Project Yukon applications, Community-driven projects typically provide a great deal of public benefit for a modest public investment. Project Yukon enables community groups to build, renovate or revitalize buildings; create enjoyable spaces for Yukoners and emphasize the importance of recreation and training for Yukon people. WHITEHORSE – The Yukon government is contributing $20,000 toward Team Yukon’s participation next month at the Canada Senior Games. The games will take place in Summerside, P.E.I. between September 18-21. More Detail: E Tax Depreciation Schedules
A Yukon contingent has participated in the Canada Senior Games only once before. I’m pleased that we’re able to lend some support to Team Yukon this year. I’ll be cheering for all team members, and wish them a safe and rewarding experience, Team Yukon’s 36 members will be participating in bowling, horseshoe, golf, tennis, eightball, track and field, swimming, bridge and cribbage events. Fundraising efforts are well underway to help reduce the cost for individual members to attend and participate in the Games. We are very pleased to receive this funding support for Team Yukon’s participation at the games. Staying mentally and physically active is important to maintaining good health and quality of life, especially for our seniors. The games help promote the benefits of active living and we look forward to showcasing the diverse talents and abilities of our Team Yukon members. More information on the Yukon Games, the Canada Senior Games, or the ElderActive Recreation Association can be obtained.
WHITEHORSE and the Yukon government announced today a cooperative arrangement for the resumption of mining activity at Elsa next spring. AMT and YTG reached an understanding that will form the basis by which AMT will continue to manage water treatment at the mine site over the winter with a view to re-opening operations in the spring under Yukon management after the Yukon assumes control of mineral resources on April 1, 2003.
There is government, people, E Tax Depreciation Schedules laws, rules and various other types of other things involved with the entire process of TDS. Whenever the changes are required they are carried out as per the requirements and necessities of the people. Benefit of the people is seen in the entire process of TDS various types of steps are taken with convince and requirements of the people. It is essential to ensure that the selection of indicators, monitoring methods and procedures for evaluation are tailored to fit the circumstances obtaining in an individual region. Standard national indicators should be avoided.
It is essential that each region should be allowed to develop detailed procedures and processes that reflect the established patterns of partnership and involvement in the region.
However it is essential to emphasise that whilst there will be a need to ensure positive interaction between transport and other elements central in RSS, the overall delivery of a coherent spatial strategy is the primary objective: RTS should enable the effective delivery of RSS, rather than lead the RSS preparation process.
but it should emphasise that transport planning should serve, not dominate, spatial development. There is a need for a more detailed statement and commitment to the provision of financial and professional support for community and voluntary bodies. The TCPA welcomes the use of umbrella groups in helping to widen involvement of stakeholders, however, this needs to be part of a wider approach. Many people are put off by the confusing nature of regional planning, or the language used in documents.
As will be the need and requirements of the people in the same way are the changes taking place always with convince and requirements of the people. Things keep on changing as per the latest updates coming in the entire process of TDS.
The proposals are likely therefore to increase financial inequity between areas. One way of overcoming this would be to operate the scheme nationally, redistributing the revenue collected between authorities on some sort of formula basis. However we recognise that this would break the link between local development and local benefits on which the consultation paper sets store, be a further erosion of local government and be more complex to administer. A preferable approach would be for the Government to operate a form of compensating mechanism in favour of poorer areas, perhaps by adjustments to the existing grant distribution formulae and capital allocations.
We agree that local authorities should have discretion to set different tariffs for different parts of their area, e.g. to favour brownfield over greenfield development, and to offer exemptions or lower tariffs to encourage certain types of development or development in needier localities (paragraphs 4.9 – 5.0 of the consultation paper). To have maximum impact on the location decisions of developers these variations in charges need to be set out very clearly in local plans, thereby minimising the need for developers to have make special cases or negotiate over figures.
The Consultation Paper places great emphasis on the use of planning obligations to secure affordable housing, however research on this subject indicates that planning obligations (in one sense a tax on developers) can only ever meet a small proportion of the nation’s affordable housing needs (which stand at about 15,000 homes per year according to a recent Joseph Rowntree Foundation Report), Buying New Home with Buyer’s Agent it should not therefore be relied upon for this purpose nor should other important works related to developments and their local communities (providing and maintaining public open space, recreation provision, transport infra-structure) become neglected as a result of prioritising affordable housing as top of the list in the proceeds from planning obligations. This said, we are generally in favour of the proposals for widening the scope of planning obligations to assist the provision of affordable housing.
We agree that commercial as well as residential development schemes should contribute and that local authorities should be free to devote a considerable proportion of the tariff to this objective where there is a strong need for additional affordable housing or for improving the existing stock. For example, whilst it would be necessary to remove the lower size threshold below which housing schemes would contribute to affordable housing, we do not accept that the guidance about such matters as on-site provision should necessarily be removed.
