(a)  £6 430 of this is to be allocated to the Mobile Warden Schemes for 2020/21;

(b)  the remaining £3 570 is to be allocated to the Community Chest Grant for 2020/21.


To accept the recommendations of the Grants Advisory Committee (see above).

Reasons for the decision:

These decisions were considered in detail and agreed unanimously with the Lead Cabinet Member for Finance present for the duration.

Alternative options considered:

Other options discussed included moving the monies into reserve or allocating to another grant scheme but The Committee felt that allocating this, in the main, to the Mobile Warden Scheme would provide greater impact to the community as it would allow SCDC to grant all schemes for 2020/21 their requested amounts.
