09/04/2021 - Domestic Abuse Bill Grant Allocation 2021-2022

To request delegated authority for the Domestic Abuse Bill funding allocation received from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

 for 20201-2022.

Decision Maker: Cabinet (Resources) Panel

Decision due date: 21/04/2021

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Lead officer: Hannah Pawley

Notice of decision: 09/04/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Due to a technical oversight, it was not realised that the key decision had not been published in the forward plan. The reason the decision cannot be delayed is the report asks for delegated authority around the £651,000 grant allocation from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to provide support for victims of domestic abuse within safe accommodation. This funding allocation and associated delivery must be completed during 2021-2022, therefore activity must be commissioned as soon as possible in order to ensure that delivery is met within the timescales and that the City of Wolverhampton Council are able to discharge their statutory duties outlined in the Domestic Abuse Bill.

Anticipated restriction: Open


09/04/2021 - Woodland Trust's Emergency Tree Fund - Grant Award

To seek approval to accept a grant award from the Woodland Trust for £129,500, to plant 10 hectares of woodland, and to sign the Grant Agreement.

Decision Maker: Cabinet (Resources) Panel

Decision due date: 21/04/2021

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Lead officer: Ric Bravery

Notice of decision: 09/04/2021

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
Due to an oversight by officers, it was not realised that accepting this grant required this level of approval until after the deadline had passed. The reason the decision cannot be delayed is to allow the signing of the Grant Agreement in line with the timetable agreed with the funder; a delay would jeopardise the funding and delivery of the project.

Anticipated restriction: Open
