The purpose of the report is to seek approval to award a Business Improvement Grant in Lees District Centre.


RESOLVED - Approve a max award of £8,000 Business Improvement Grant to: Lees Bacaro Ltd (t/a Milan Bar) in respect of 13 Elliott Street, Lees

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - Do nothing. If the Council chooses to adopt this approach then the Council’s regeneration aspirations for Lees District Centre would be delayed.
Option 2 - Approve the award of the Business Improvement Grant. Business Improvement Grant applicants will enter into a contract with the Council, to ensure that works are being undertaken satisfactorily with claw back arrangements for non-compliance. Funding takes place once the contract is completed and the works completed to the satisfaction of the Council.

Alternative options considered:

Option 1
