North East Local Area Committee budget report

 

 

6.1

The Committee considered a report of the Community Services Manager that advised each Local Area Committee had a £100,000 budget to address local priorities, identified within their respective Community Plans.  The report set out details of the spend in respect of the £100,000 that had been authorised by the Community Services Manager, in consultation with the LAC Chair and in accordance with the delegation granted in September 2021. 

 

The report showed funding allocated to the North East Local Area Committee for 2023/24, and set out proposals for its allocation and expenditure in line with the North East Local Area Committee Community Plan.

 

The report noted the expenditure made in 2023/24 used to address local priorities, sought approval of the proposed allocated expenditure against the £100,000 budget to address local priorities in the North East LAC in 2023/24, and included the underspend and committed spend from 2022/23, as detailed in the report. 

 

An additional proposal was outlined in the report which recommended that 50% (£45,000) of the North East LAC’s allocation from the LAC Cost of Living budget (£90,000) was awarded as a grant to Citizens Advice Sheffield to support its advice line.

 

6.2

RESOLVED: That the North East Local Area Committee:

 

6.2.1

(i)    Notes the expenditure against the £100,000 budget to address local priorities in the North East LAC in 2022/3 and includes the underspend and committed spend from 2022/23, as detailed in the report; and

 

(ii)   Agrees that half (£45,000) of the Cost of Living budget allocated to the North East LAC  be given as a grant to Citizen Advice Sheffield to support its advice line as detailed in the report.  

 

6.3

Reasons for Decision

 

6.3.1

The North East LAC is asked to approve the broad allocation of funding under the priority headings identified to assist its ability to monitor its budget, and to authorise the Community Services Manager to approve expenditure above the current delegated authority in certain circumstances so that delivery of the Community Plan is not delayed.

 

6.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected 

 

6.4.1

Decisions on any expenditure to support Community Plan priorities could be delegated to officers, however, this would restrict the LAC’s ability to monitor its delegated budget and delivery of the Community Plan.

 

All decisions on expenditure to support Community Plan priorities could be delegated to officers.  However, this would restrict the LAC’s ability to monitor its delegated budget and delivery of the Community Plan.
