Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


Due to the ongoing public health emergency the County Council has received a number of support packages from Central Government.  As funds are received the Council needs to determine arrangements to distribute, allocate or make other preparations for the appropriate use of funds received.


The relevant decision maker has been determined by the intended use of the allocated funds.  The Council may be required to comply with a number of conditions set out in the terms of the grant which may mean decisions need to be taken quickly due to the need to provide timely financial support related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Chairman of the Performance and Finance Scrutiny Committee has been consulted as required under Standing Order 3.47.


The Cabinet Member has approved a further allocation of £542k Emergency Central Government COVID 19 grant funding as set out at Paragraph 5 in the report to make a total capital budget of £624k to complete the demolition of the former Chichester High School Yr 7 Building project agreed by the Leader LDR01 2019-20
