In respect of the Community Select Committee’s review of Void properties, the Leader referred to the serious Coroner’s case of a two-year old in Rochdale who had died from a severe respiratory condition as a result of the damp and mould in the social housing property in which he lived.  As the Community Select Committee had carried out a review of damp and mould in SBC-owned properties in 2016, officers were asked to bring the Coroner’s report, and in particular the associated recommendations concerning the Rochdale incident, to the attention of the Community Select Committee.


With regard to Minute 3(5) – Climate Change Annual Update: October 2022 of the Minutes of the meeting of the Overview & Scrutiny Committee held on 18 October 2022, the Leader and Portfolio Holder for Environment & Climate Change supported the Committee’s request that each of the 13 wards in the Co-operative Neighbourhood areas should be allocated a sum of £7,500 per annum for physical climate change-related improvements in their areas.
