Decision details

Covid Local Support Grant – extension to end of September 2021

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Chief Executive is being asked to make an urgent decision on behalf of Council to agree the allocations for the Covid Local Support Grant (CLSG) from the DWP announced on 21 June 2021 as set out in the Decision Record.

The decision needs to be made in time for schools to organise spending their allocations before the summer break.

Reasons for the decision:

Officers and Cllrs agree that this is the best use of the limited resource. There is no funding available to bridge the gap to enable us to deliver what we have previously delivered in school holidays.

Due to the time constraints the need to submit to the DWP our proposed action for spend and the need for schools to be ordering vouchers before the summer holiday begins the decision must be made week commending 12/07/21.

Urgent item?: Yes
