Decision details

Inclusive Growth Fund - update

Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Leader (incorporating Policy, Strategy and Partnerships), Executive Leader (incorporating Policy, Strategy and Partnerships)

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: To update the Executive Leader on the development of projects as agreed at his September 2019 decision session.

The Executive Member is asked to note the progress made and agree funding for the first tranche of projects.

This item has been deferred to 15 January 2020 as it is essential that the council does not act in a way which might be interpreted as supporting candidates or a particular political party, therefore this item has been deferred until after the Election.

This decision will be taken in consultation with the Executive Member for Economy and Strategic Planning.



                      i.         That the progress that has been made on developing the agreed projects be noted and agreed that a future report would be brought back to the Executive Leader to ensure that outcomes were delivered;

                     ii.         That approval was given to the commissioning of those projects as set out in paragraphs 11 to 28 of the report;

                    iii.        That the Executive Leader delegated the funding decision for 14+ vocational training and work projects (paragraphs 21 and 22 of the report) to the Corporate Director of Children, Education and Communities in consultation with the Executive Leader.


Reason:     So that the Council develops a pipeline of projects that positively address inclusive growth in the City of York.
