Councillor M Johnson moved the Portfolio Holder update report.


Questions were raised on procurement and social value, the High Street Task Force and jobs in Cockermouth, Community Investment Funding linked with the Allerdale Community Partnership, sports and leisure, a feasibility study for the development of a BMX track in Workington, Maryport regeneration projects and safety aspects of the Solway Coast cycle track.


With regards to Revenues and Benefits, Councillor M Campbell-Savours asked the following;


‘Noting from a summary draft outturn report provided to the Executive in April, for the cost centre ‘Council Tax Hardship Fund’, it appears there is an approved budget of £246K of which the gross outturn at 31 March only appears to have been £10K, have we failed to distribute that money? Is the online form planned for introduction in September to apply for discounts and exemptions in respect of Council tax related to this? And if we have only spent £10K can someone tell me where is that budget now?’


In Councillor C Sharpe’s absence it was agreed a written response would be provided to all members following the meeting.
