TIP - Shortlist Presentation & Discussion

To receive a presentation on the TIP shortlist, with the aim of the Board providing endorsement for the TIP creation to proceed.

Minutes:

Jane Dalton, representing Groundswell attended the virtual meeting and gave a short presentation updating members on the community consultation process and the responses so far received.

 

Members then received a presentation by representatives from Hatch on the process undertaken to move from a longlist to a shortlist of TIP projects, with the Board being requested to agree and endorse a shortlist of TIP projects for a £25 million investment package.

 

There was a comprehensive discussion and debate during the virtual meeting and whilst the general consensus was that the majority of the projects Hatch had shortlisted were supported by the Board, further detail was needed to fill in gaps that had been identified in order to fully support the project shortlist.

 

It was agreed that the TIP Delivery sub-group would meet on Tuesday 1 December 2020 to review and further scrutinise the shortlisted projects and that a final list would be circulated to Board Members electronically requesting each members endorsement.

 

RESOLVED

That the decision of the sub-group would be electronically circulated to all Board members for them to agree the shortlisted projects virtually.
