Approval is also sought for the Strategic Director Regeneration and Environment to finalise details of Wirral’s programme as part of a wider Combined Authority submission in consultation with the Strategic Director Families and Wellbeing and Director of Finance who will sign the letter of intent to commit funds on behalf of the Council.


Bidding for ESF is a competitive process and as such Appendix 1 of this report is exempt from public disclosure in accordance with paragraph 3 of part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 due to the commercially sensitive nature of the information.
