Minutes:

The Sub-Committee gave consideration to a report of the Corporate Policy Lead which informed them that, following the District Review, a £500k Local Improvement Fund (LIF) was established to support district priorities.

 

The first round of the LIF launched in July 2019, with final applications reviewed by the Cabinet Sub-Committee in December 2019. In total the LIF received 19 full applications, with 14 projects receiving funding, totalling £391,521. This left £108,479 available for further projects.

 

The Cabinet Sub-Committee (LIF) was asked to review the final recommendations and comments provided by the Advisory Panel, and agree which applications should receive funding, totalling no more than £108,479.

 

Individual consideration was given to those projects recommended for part or potential funding and the Sub-Committee received further details of those proposals. 

 

RESOLVED that:

 

1.     Funding as set out in the report be agreed for Applications 1, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 12.

2.     Funding for the other Applications be not agreed at this time and may be considered in future.
