Officer Delegated Decision:UK Shared Prosperity Fund Allocation to Additional Projects

In February 2023, the Chief Executive approved an initial skeleton programme of UKSPF projects and gave authority to the Development and Regeneration Manager to issue ‘call outs’ for additional project proposals. Two call outs were subsequently launched, and project proposals received in response to that call out have been appraised by an external specialist team. A final list of the recommended projects is attached at Appendix A.


Some UKSPF core funds remain unallocated and the allocation of these will be subject to further decision(s) in due course.


To authorise the spending of UKSPF on internal CEC projects does not negate the requirement for individual project leads to ensure they have in place other necessary approvals for their project such as ensuring capital projects are included in the capital programme and that any necessary virements are approved, that grant schemes are approved.
