Decision due:   December 2020

Lead officer:  Jackie Mould

Notice of proposed decision first published: 01/12/2020

Reason for urgency:

The Government have given the Council money to spend with an expectation and need for it to be spent quickly to help people and businesses in need. The timing of the notification of the money, the issue of the rules and guidance and the need to develop a fair and appropriate scheme to help those in most need mean that a decision needs to be taken as a matter of urgency. As such it is not practicable to give 28 days’ notice of the intention to take the decision.
