Composition

MR JUSTICE MOSES: claimant, MR Bewry, challenges the decision of Norwich City Council's Housing Benefit Review Board, decision date 8 August 2000. The Board decided that the claimant had failed TO establish that he was liable for rent in respect of his occupation of 11 Martins Road, Norwich. The board was chaired by MR Round. He and the other two members of the board were Norwich City councillors. 2. The claimant seeks TO impugn the decision of the Board on two main grounds. Firstly, that Board lacks appearance of INDEPENDENT and IMPARTIAL TRIBUNAL AND, thus, contravenes its constitutional RIGHT TO fair trial. The source of that right was expressed in two ways. It was asserted to be RIGHT under COMMON LAW AND, alternatively, RIGHT protected by Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights. It was contended that the Human Rights Act 1998 had effect in circumstances where this Court was required TO give a ruling after 2 October 2000. Secondly, it was submitted that the presence of MR Round as Chairman of the Board gives rise TO real possibility of bias. 3. Entitlement TO Housing Benefit is contained in section 130 of the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992, which provide: person is entitled TO Housing Benefit if-he is liable TO make payments in respect of dwelling in Great Britain which he occupies as his home. 4. By section 63 of Social Security Administration Act 1992: adjudication Regulations shall provide that, where person has claim-Housing Benefit. The Authority shall notify person of its determination of claim. Regulations shall make provision for reviews of determinations relating TO Housing Benefit. 5. By Regulation 81 of Housing Benefit Regulations 1987: person who has made representations under Regulation 79 May give or send TO the appropriate Authority write notice requesting further Review of determination within 4 weeks of the date on which determination on those representations was sent TO him. 6. By Regulation 81: subject TO paragraph 5, further Review shall be conducted by a Review Board appointed by the appropriate Authority and constituted in accordance with Schedule 7. 7. Under Schedule 7, where local Authority is the appropriate Authority, composition of the Board is State TO be councillors of that Authority. 8. I should point out at this stage that review boards have now been replaced by appeal tribunals pursuant to Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Act 2000 Schedule 7. Members of such tribunals are chosen by a panel constituted by the Lord Chancellor and will be INDEPENDENT of local authorities. The Housing Benefit Regulations 1987, TO which I have refer, have been revoked by the Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit and Discretionary Financial Assistance Regulations 2001 Schedule 2 Part 2, new system came into force from 2 July 2001. 9. Facts found by the Review Board are set out in very full decision date 8 August.

Coat of arms

Norfolk County Council Arms were granted on 3 July 1904 following the Royal Licence of King Edward VII date 11 May 1904. The King, in Royal Licence, specifically instructed on design of Arms to be granted in commemoration of our long residence in Norfolk, which refers to the Royal residence in Sandringham. Arms are blazon, or describe, as follow: Per pale or and Sable bend ermine on Chief Gules Lion passant guardant of First between two ostrich Plumes Argent quilled and each ensigned with Princes coronet thereon motto Ich Dien as borne on banner of King Edward III. The top part of Shield, Chief, shows Lion from the Royal Arms of England together with ostrich plumes and a coronet referring to the Prince of Wales, which is a very special honour for the County Council. Rest of Shield refers to Ralph de Gael or Guader, Earl of Norfolk from c 1069. These Arms were attributed to him later for he could not have bear them in his lifetime as Heraldry did not begin until about 1127. Ermine May well referred to Brittany as Ralph was Lord of Gael in that Duchy. On 22 December 1982, supporters were grant: on either side of Lion guardant or that on sinister dimidiating Herring erect Argent. The Lion represents Norwich and Lion / Herring Great Yarmouth. Supporters are further honour reflecting the stature of Norfolk County Council. Norfolk County Council Crest can only be used by Norfolk County Council. Organisations other than Norfolk County Council may only use Norfolk Shield.

The Challenge

10 candidates running for Norwich City Council have been asked plenty of questions in recent weeks, but they may not have been as tough as those posed on Wednesday night by four young people interested in the future of the City. 10 candidates running for Norwich City Council have been asked plenty of questions in recent weeks, but they may not have been as tough as those posed on Wednesday night by four young people interested in the future of the City. Norwich Youth and Democracy Challenge Candidate Forum brings about two dozen people to United Congregational Church, on Broadway, where students seek answers. Yobany Vargas, student at Three Rivers Community College, asked candidates if they would support allowing high school students on Council. Mark Bettencourt said he would. The biggest thing you can do is promote youth getting involve, Bettencourt say. Council President Pro Tempore Peter Desaulniers calls idea fantastic, and said new ideas often come from younger minds. We need to find way to get youths involved, he say. Charlie Jaskiewicz, chairman of the Board of Education who is running for Council, said the idea is in place at the state Board of Education. This is an untapped resource that we need to get, he say. Putting young people on the City Council in non-voting position is a great idea. Derell Wilson, President of NAACP Youth Council, asked what could be done about the city budget issues. Candidate Ron Ward said it was important for the city to work with its unions. Most of the budget goes to salaries, Ward say. The city must work better with collective bargaining units. Candidate Richard Caron says solving budget problems comes through business investment, while Candidate Sofee Noblick thinks the City should act like business. What can we afford to do what can we not afford to do, she say. We have to look at the big picture. Incumbent Candidate Laurie Glenney-Popovich said she was disappointed by the budget process in her first term, but thought a better system was on the horizon. I want to finish the job I start, she say. Candidate Susan Misenheimer said she would call on the state government to stop unfunded mandates that drain municipal and school budgets. Stop telling us how to educate our children and give those decisions back to us, she say. Angeliz Vargas, 16, asks candidates why they want to be on the Council. For incumbent Deb Hinchey, answer had to do with the learning process. I appreciate the honor voters give me when they take a chance on me, Hinchey said about her first election in 2009. In the last two years, I have learnt an incredible amount. I want the chance to continue that process. H. Tucker Braddock said he wanted to continue the work on revamping the citys downtown.

The Solution

Using web GIS solution from Esri UK, Norwich City Council works with its IT partner, Local Government share Services, to develop a new public-facing web application. Call MyNorwich, IT enables citizens to enter address to find out their waste collection dates or locate their nearest schools, parks, grit bins and much more besides. Next, Council embed GIS functionality into a range of online forms, which members of the public can fill in to report street scene issues to the Council. Some of these forms combine Esri mapping with integration capabilities, which enable them to be sent directly to appoint contractors. For instance, when citizens open councils ' online form for reporting illegal fly-tipping, they click on GIS map to pinpoint site of rubbish, and this accurate location reference is sent directly to the contractor responsible for clearing the area

The Benefits

Please be aware that the government is planning on making changes to Housing Benefit in 2013. This means if you receive Housing Benefit and are of working age, living in a Council / Housing association home that is larger than the government say you need, you may lose part of your Housing Benefit and you may have to pay more for this property in future if Government continue with its plans. You should therefore take this into consideration when you are accepting any offer of property. Further information is available from the Department of Work and Pensions. If you are single and aged between 25 and 34 and renting from a private landlord from 1 January 2012, you will only be entitled to share room rate, not one bedroom rate and you will be expected to make up any shortfall in rent. Consider carefully when bidding for or accepting an offer of accommodation of this type. Information on Local Housing Allowance rates and Housing Benefit can be found on Norwich City Council's website. We will update this information as proposed benefits changes become clearer. If you are concerned or would like to talk to someone about how these changes may affect you, please contact our Income Management Team on 0344 980 3333.
