Acceptance of Grant Funding from the Department for Transport - Key Decision

Decision type: Key

Decision status: For Determination

Notice of proposed decision first published: 25/03/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The decision is urgent and cannot be delayed because although the Department for Transport (DfT) confirmed that the Council's bid to the Transforming Cities Fund was successful as part of the 2019/20 budget, the letter formalising the grant allocation was received on 20 March 2020. The DfT is proposing to pay the first instalment of the grant on 31 March 2020, so there is insufficient time to allow for a 28-day notice period before the decision to accept the funding is taken.

Decision due: Not before 27th Mar 2020 by Leader of the Council

Lead member: Leader of the Council

Lead director: Corporate Director for Development and Growth

Department: Development and Growth
