Proposals for the operation of the £500,000 from Council budget to Local Town Teams in Wirral following the application process.
A report by the Director of Regeneration, Housing and Planning followed the recent Council budget (Minute No. 317 refers). The report set out the approach for taking forward the £500,000 which had been made available to local shopping areas, through a bidding process, to help to improve the vitality of their centre.
The report outlined the approach to consulting and advertising the application process to help gain interest in creating a Town Team and bidding for the funding. The report also outlined the process for applications and the requirements that Town Teams would need to meet in order to be eligible for funding, as well as outlining the criteria which the applications would be considered against.
(1) the process and criteria for individual bids of up to £100,000 to be invited from Traders Groups in Wirral, for the creation of a number of Town Teams be agreed; and
(2) a further report be presented to the Cabinet for the approval of bids, once the application process has been completed.
