The subject of the decision:
This report provided an overview of the funding secured through Historic England’s heritage led regeneration programmes. It also sought approval for additional Council funding towards the implementation of the Northallerton High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ) following a delay to the implementation and requirement to update the funding and spend profile.
Alternative options considered:
Options considered were as set out in the report.
The reason for the decision:
Cabinet was satisfied that the option to deliver the amended programme would offer best value for money for the Council and would help secure delivery of the project broadly in line with the original criteria.
That Cabinet approves and recommends to Council an increase of £120,000 to the scheme and agree to funding being vired from the Northallerton Complementary Schemes budget.
