Council to consult with businesses on annual budget plans

NEW News from Merton Council - 21 January, 2021 - 10:53

As part of Merton Council’s efforts to be a great place for business, the Leader of the Council and senior officials are to meet with local firms to ask their views on the council’s budget and business plan proposals, and to encourage take up of support for business available through the council.

Leader of the council, Councillor Mark Allison, will be hosting a virtual meeting on Wednesday 17 February 2021, 6–7pm along with council officers and cabinet members to answer any questions and address concerns business owners may have about the proposals for 2021/22 and the business plan 2021-25.

The meeting is part of the council’s annual consultation with businesses on the financial decisions it has to make to balance the budget and plan for the coming four years.

Merton has already paid £32.5 million to local businesses through initiatives designed to help those affected by COVID-19 and firms looking to get help can find out more at merton.gov.uk/coronavirus/business.

Details of the proposed Business Plan will be considered by Cabinet on 22 February 2021 and will be available on the council’s website after the meeting.

Merton Council recognises the importance of a vibrant local economy and the role local businesses play in creating jobs and prosperity. The responses to the consultation will all be considered as part of the business plan which will be finalised at Full Council on 3 March 2021.

Councillor Mark Allison, Leader of Merton Council, said: “I am a big supporter of Merton’s businesses, and I want this to be a great place for business. Our local firms are vital to the economic success of the borough.

“As a council we have adopted a business-like approach to the way we run our services and to the financial decisions we have to make and we have been praised by the government for the speed with which we have got support to local businesses that are struggling due to Covid-19. So these discussions with the business community are very important to me, and I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts on what we’re doing and how we can continue to make Merton a place that’s business-friendly.”

If you would like to attend, please email elaine.connaughton@merton.gov.uk to confirm your attendance. Joining instructions will then be sent to you.

Cabinet member becomes the first Merton councillor to take maternity leave

NEW News from Merton Council - 21 January, 2021 - 10:41

One of Merton Council’s cabinet members, Councillor Natasha Irons, is the first councillor in the local authority’s history to take maternity leave from her role as an elected member.

Councillor Irons, who is Cabinet Member for Local Environment and Green Spaces, begins her maternity leave this month after she gave birth to her son. Councillor Mike Brunt will be the first councillor to provide maternity cover when he takes on her portfolio.

This first-ever maternity arrangement is part of Merton Council’s commitment to families and to encouraging a wider range of people to become councillors and to support existing councillors, who may want to start a family, to remain as councillors.

It follows a decision to update the council’s policies from February 2020, making it explicit that councillors have an entitlement to parental leave after giving birth or adopting a child.

Council Leader, Councillor Mark Allison, said: “Merton is a great place for families and I am committed to ensuring that we have family-friendly arrangements in place for all our councillors.

“I was delighted to update the council’s policies last year. As a result, Merton now achieves a historic milestone, with Councillor Irons becoming our first Cabinet Member to take maternity leave. I am also very happy to appoint Councillor Brunt as our first ever interim cabinet member.

“We would all like to congratulate Natasha and her family on their new arrival and I look forward to working with Mike during the coming months.”

Councillor Natasha Irons said: “As I start my maternity leave, I’m delighted to become the first Merton councillor and mother to be able to take this important time with my new son and our family. I’d like to thank the fantastic staff at St Helier Hospital, where he was born. “I hope that the maternity, paternity and adoption leave for councillors will encourage a wider range of people to stand as councillors in the future and to support existing councillors to continue in their roles if they want to start or add to their families.”
