Report of the Executive Director Corporate Resources and Customer Services.
The Council considered the report of the Executive Director of Corporate Resources and Customer Services in relation to securing over £2 million grant funding.
The report detailed that Sefton Council had received a direct award of £1.9M capital and £0.225M revenue funding to retrofit 215 poorly insulated homes for low income Sefton residents. The report set out that the funding had come from The Department of Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as part of the government’s post covid 19 response.
It was moved by Councillor Maher, seconded by Councillor Fairclough and
(1) the supplementary capital estimate of £1.9M and supplementary revenue estimate of £0.225M be approved; and
(2) the Executive Director of Corporate Resources and Customer Services in consultation with the Cabinet Member Regulatory, Compliance and Corporate Services be granted delegated authority to appoint a contractor via a direct award from the Procure Plus framework and then enter into the contract once the procurement process is completed in order to undertake the required works.
