Award of a Business Improvement Grant in the Failsworth A62 Corridor

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Economy & Skills (Leader - Councillor Sean Fielding)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The purpose of the report is to seek approval to award a Business Improvement Grant in the Failsworth A62 Corridor.


The Business Improvement Grant award is approved for £1,235, in respect of Unicar Auto, 153 Oldham Road, Failsworth.

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - Do nothing. If the council chooses to adopt this approach, then the council's regeneration aspirations for the Failsworth A62 Corridor would be delayed. There is potential that the appearance of these premises and the A62 would decline further.
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:

Options 1.
