Wirral Biz Programme - Request for Further 3 Month Extension

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Awaiting Implementation

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Director of Regeneration submitted a report which sought the Cabinet’s agreement to extend the existing Wirralbiz business start programme for the period 1st July to 30th September 2009 whilst the contracting process with the North West Development Agency (NWDA) for the provision of their Regional Business Start Programme was completed. This would ensure that there was no discontinuity of service to people in Wirral who wished to start their own business during this period.


There was an allocation of £2.086m within the Working Neighbourhoods Fund to support the business start up programme in Wirral and the required £262,500 would be taken from this allocation.


Resolved – That £262,500 of funding from the £2.086m Working Neighbourhoods Fund allocation for the business start programme be approved to extend the Wirralbiz Programme from 1 July 2009 to September 30, 2009.
