Report of Lindsey Hill, Local Area Committee Manager

Additional documents:



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 described the proposals for the use of the remaining funding allocated for cost of living work in the North East area, to a sum of £45,000.




RESOLVED: That the North East Local Area Committee:


(i)    notes the expenditure made in 2023/24 used to address local priorities against the £100,000 budget to address local priorities in the North East LAC in 2023/24 and includes the agreed underspend spend from 2022/23; and

(ii)   agrees the proposals outlined in the report for use of the cost of living funding within the North East LAC area.




Reasons for Decision


The North East LAC is asked to approve the broad allocation of funding and expenditure 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.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected


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