Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
That the Cabinet Member for Housing & Safer Communities:
Harrogate District Street Aid is a very successful initiative that deserves to continue and grow.
To not continue with the initiative – this is recommended for rejection as Street Aid has proven to be a successful support for those street sleeping and begging in the district. It has also heightened multi-agency work around those street sleeping and begging.
To not agree to the re-name ‘Harrogate District Street Aid’ – this is recommended to be rejected. It is recognised that there are people in need across the district and it would not be possible to set up further separate Street Aids for areas – e.g. Ripon Street Aid.
