Report of David Luck, Community Services Manager.

Additional documents:



Each Local Area Committee has a £100,000 budget to address local priorities, identified within their respective Community Plans.  This report sets out initial details of the proposed spending within this £100,000 budget during the 2022/23 financial year. 




RESOLVED: that the North Local Area Committee:

(i)             notes the proposed anticipated expenditure against the £100,000 budget to address local priorities in the North Local Area Committee Community Plan in 2022/23, as detailed in the report, and in particular:-


·       agrees that a grant of £11,302 be awarded to High Green Development Trust for the development of a youth base; and

·       approves a budget of £25,000 for parks improvements.


(ii)      to the extent that it is not covered by existing authority, authorises the Community Services Manager to make decisions on expenditure relating to the priorities set out in the report provided that:


·        the decision is taken in consultation with the Local Area Committee Chair;

·        the decision may not approve expenditure on any element in excess of the anticipated limit for that element set out in the report; and

·        a report detailing the delegated spending decisions taken by the Community Services Manager is presented to the next Local Area Committee meeting.


(iii)     agrees the attached action plan as a basis to develop future projects/ activity.




Reasons for Decision




The North Local Area Committee is asked to note the proposed allocation of funding to the projects identified to enable detailed planning to commence and delivery to begin in the coming months.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected




Decisions on any expenditure above the existing authority to the Community Services Manager could be reserved to the Local Area Committee but this would delay delivery of priority actions to address specific issues identified in the Community Plan.



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