Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Deputy Chief Executive/Director of Corporate Services presented a report which provided the Cabinet with the final position of the 2009/10 review and refresh of Wirral’s 2008/11 local area agreement (LAA).  The review and refresh had been managed by the Local Strategic Partnership Executive Board which reported to Cabinet, given that Wirral Council was the accountable body for the LAA.


The report also provided the Cabinet with Wirral’s final performance reward grant allocation of £7,933,232 for the previous LAA stretch targets.  It was noted that this successful achievement was 80.76% of the total performance reward grant available for stretch targets during 2006-09.


The report requested that £120,765 of the Council’s performance reward grant allocation be approved to continue funding the three temporary partnership posts to support the ongoing delivery of Wirral’s LAA and development of Wirral’s LSP.




(1)  the report and findings of Wirral’s LAA review and Wirral’s refreshed 2008/11 LAA be noted;


(2)  the LSP Executive Board’s recommendations for final allocations of performance reward grant as the accountable body for the LAA, as set out in section 5.2 of this report be approved; and


(3)  funds achieved over and above the 2009/10 and 2010/11 £1.4 million revenue allocations previously agreed by Cabinet, be allocated to continue temporary posts within the Corporate Performance Team, thus allocating £120,765 to continue to fund partnership performance and support officer posts.
