This report seeks the approval to enter into a funding agreement with the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), and for the Programmes and Accountable Body Team within City Growth to act as Accountable Body for delivery of the above project.


A successful funding bid to Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has awarded SCC £763,000 revenue monies. This will provide much needed dedicated capacity.


This MHCLG funded project provides critical capacity to develop a 5-year strategy, cohesive spatial plan, and the outline business case for a bespoke delivery vehicle.
