Recommendation


The Overview and Scrutiny Committee recommends to the Executive Committee that Council agree to the Godalming Citizens Advice Bureau being advised that their request for additional funding is not approved, and they look to fund the costs from within their existing budgets or find ways of generating additional income from their accommodation.

[Wards Affected: N/A]

The purpose of the report at Appendix F is to advise members of the consideration given to this matter by the Corporate Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 25th June 2001 and to seek this Committee’s approval to widen the scope of the Sponsored Organisation Scheme to include organisations that do not already receive revenue funding from the Council. The Council has already agreed to this proposal, but the question as to how any additional funding might be allocated remains outstanding.
Awareness that this Scheme exists is slowly spreading and, should the Council decide not to expand the Scheme, then the decision would have to be communicated to the community.
There are resource, environmental, and “Opportunities for All implications contained in this report.
