10        Extraordinary Business

 

10.1

Consideration of an item of extraordinary business

 

The local board considered an item of extraordinary business during item 20 of the meeting agenda to discuss a proposed interim funding approach for its local board area Arts, Community and Events venue partners.

To avoid the disruption of services or the potential closure of local area facilities, it was proposed that the local board urgently consider an allocation of interim funding to its community partners from its 2020/2021 financial year budget for July, August and September 2020.

The case for urgency was made noting that the local board’s next scheduled business meeting is 21 July 2020.  The interm funding will provide certainty to its community partners before the start of the new financial year (1 July 2020) to continue services to the local community.

MOVED by Deputy Chairperson L Corrick, seconded by Member K Smith:
