Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 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.

Decision due: 21 Apr 2021 by Cabinet (Resources) Panel

Lead member: Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing

Lead director: John Denley, Director of Public Health
