This report recommends the award of a grant to the Anvil Trust in 2021/22 of £395,000 in line with the decisions taken by Cabinet on 9 March 2021. The award is subject to the submission of a satisfactory final Business Plan by the Anvil Trust.
In accordance with the decision taken by Cabinet on 9 March 2021, award the Anvil Trust a grant of £395,000 in 2021/22 subject to the Executive Director of Borough Development, in consultation with the Executive Director of Corporate Services, being satisfied with the Trust’s final Business Plan.
The proposed approach provides certainty to the Trust, if it is able to provide a suitable Business Plan, whilst ensuring that the council does not allocate a significant amount of money on the basis of a draft Business Plan that an independent review has concluded is not satisfactory, a view which is endorsed by officers.
To recommend a delay on any decision on the level of grant to be awarded to the Anvil Trust in 2021/22.
To recommend a grant of less that £395,000.
