Executive considered a report of the Portfolio Holder – Corporate Governance. The report sought endorsement for the allocation of funding from the first round of discretionary grant funding. The report also set out for consideration the criteria for allocation of discretionary grant funding from the forthcoming Additional Restrictions Grant.
Moved by Councillor Duncan McGregor and seconded by Councillor Deborah Watson.
RESOLVED - That:-
1) Executive notes the report and endorses the awards set out in full in Appendix A to the report that were made on the basis of the priorities and criteria set for the original discretionary grant funding,
2) Executive notes the details of the forthcoming Additional Restrictions Grant as set out in Appendix B to the report and endorses the proposals as set out in the recommendation.
REASONS FOR DECISION:
The original discretionary grant fund had been successfully utilised to support a number of businesses across the District. In addition, no application from any eligible business had been refused a discretionary grant. On this basis, it was recommended to endorse the awards made and the proposed criteria as set out in the report.
OTHER OPTIONS CONSIDERED:
The option to not make changes and ‘to do the same as before’ had been rejected for the reasons set out in paragraph 1.16 of the report.
