Reasons for the decision:

Each application has been evaluated and scored by a multi-agency officer panel in accordance to the criteria set out in the NHB Community Fund Policy. The recommendations were presented to the award group panels made up of elected members who considered the recommendations as well as all applications submitted. Taking into account the New Homes Bonus Policy and the member award group priorities each group made decisions in respect of which applications would progress for Portfolio Holder final approval.

Alternative options considered:

Other options considered would have been to go with the initial officer recommendations, although this would have not been aligned to the Cabinet decision made on the 12th June 2018.
