Meeting: 06/11/2008 - Cabinet (Item 256)
The Director of Finance presented a report which updated Members on changes to the composition and value of the Area Based Grant for 2008/09. The report also recommended Members to approve the allocation of the 2009/10 and 2010/11 grant in accordance with the indicative allocations provided by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).
The Leader of the Council moved a motion and it was –
(1) the allocation of Area Based Grant in 2009/10 and 2010/11 be on the indicative basis identified by the Government as outlined in the report;
(2) a report setting out a Business Case Methodology for the allocation of Area Based Grant in 2010/11 and subsequent years be brought to a future meeting of Cabinet in the current financial year; and
(3) In agreeing the allocation of area based grant of the next two years it is noted that this includes future funding for Tranmere Together. This further funding should be provided with a proviso that staff from Tranmere Together should work closely with Council officers to help transfer learning between the organisations with a view to informing any future development of neighbourhood and area based working through Area Forums.
