Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which presented the Council’s Food Service Plan 2015-17 which had been produced in order to satisfy the Food Standards Agency requirements.

 

Officers outlined the report and advised that the plan considered the resources available and what could realistically be achieved and what would be delivered going forward.

 

The Executive Member commented that the expectation of the public was the same with limited resources and queried what the Council is doing to encourage businesses to continue to reach high standards. Officers confirmed that there was an element of pride in York amongst businesses that had achieved 5 stars and those businesses that had achieved 3 or 4 stars generally strived to improve their ratings. Local newspaper reporting and the use of an internet site also kept pressure on businesses to keep standards high.

 

The Executive Member requested that update reports be brought to future decision sessions on visits to premises and enforcement work.
