15/10/2020 - Local Restrictions Business Support Discretionary Grants ref: 4754    For Determination

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Economy & Regeneration

Decision published: 26/10/2020

Effective from: 15/10/2020

Decision:

The Cabinet Members for Resources, Commissioning & Governance and Economy & Regeneration have considered a report that confirmed that from 9 September 2020 the Government had put in place a grant scheme to support businesses that are required to close due to the implementation of localised lockdown restrictions.

 

The Council is required to set up and operate a grant scheme for eligible businesses that have been directed to close. There will be a scheme for businesses in the business rates system and a discretionary scheme for businesses outside of the business rates system based on an allocation of 5% of the value of the support needed for the business rates scheme.

 

The approach designed for the discretionary scheme takes a prudent approach to the allocation of the grant to reach as many businesses as possible while avoiding over-subscription.

 

The Cabinet Members for Resources, Commissioning & Governance and Economy & Regeneration have then given approval to the approach outlined in the report for the operation of a Local Restrictions Business Support Discretionary Grant Scheme.

1At this time a delegation was given to Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration, in consultation with the Cabinet Member Adult Care and Health and Director of Public Health, to determine the preparatory implementation and contract arrangements that need to be undertaken utilising the initial tranche of £36m of funding from Government to deliver the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) and other GM Clean Air Plan (CAP) measures

 

Consequently, and in line with the above delegation, the Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration in consultation with the Cabinet Member Adult Care and Health and Director of Public Health, has given approval to the proposal that the GMCA (acting by its officer, TfGM) undertakes the preparatory procurement arrangements that need to be undertaken to deliver the CAZ and other GM CAP measures on behalf of Stockport Council in accordance with TfGM’s existing Constitutional arrangements.

NOTE: This decision does not give approval for TfGM to enter into contracts on behalf of the Local Authority, but to run the procurement exercise with potential suppliers to final evaluation and to provide a report to allow the GM Authorities make a decision to award to the successful supplier(s).
