Following discussions with District and Borough Councils it was agreed that there could be an opportunity to pool small amounts of the recently received Additional Restrictions Grant (ARG) to enable some complementary countywide offers to be developed, yet which were also bespoke to a particular locality. This report sets out a programme of activity that is deliberately designed to allow a number of authorities to pool funding as required. The programme is a combination of opportunities to top-up existing Countywide programmes, therefore working to guarantee outputs in certain localities and delivering new schemes that support skills development and businesses to “thrive” as we transition between lockdown and new Tier System, and face the ongoing challenges presented by Covid-19.
