Purpose:

The Council's delegated budgets scheme allocates budgets of £15,000 to each Ward covered for the financial year 2020/2021. The funding for this scheme can be spent on supplementing funding public services, for the benefit of the local community.

 

Councillors Galley and T Williams of Anchorsholme Ward have requested £15,000 as funding to the Parks Department for the purchase and planting of street trees on Anchorsholme Lane to enhance the community.

 

Councillors Burdess and Hutton of Clifton Ward have requested £7,000 as funding to the Parks Department for the purchase and planting of 2 Sustainable Christmas Trees in Clifton Ward for the festive season.

 

Councillors R Scott and Wing of Greenlands Ward have requested £1,247.90 as funding to Unity Academy to provide Christmas gifts to pupils attending the school during the distressful period of the Covid pandemic to give all attending the school a sense of community and cohesion.  This is a retrospective application due to the fact that the gifts were presented to pupils on the last day of the Christmas term and since then due to the Covid pandemic and national lockdown, it has taken staff many weeks to collate all the information required for this application.
