The Director of Community Services submitted a report asking committee to consider a scheme of delegation for the delivery of the project and commissioning of services from Together an Active Future (TaAF) funding to facilitate development of the work.
He reminded committee of the background to the TaAF funding and the approach to it and purpose of it. The objective of the pilots being to change thinking and develop new ways of working, with sustainability being a requirement.
For Ribble Valley, the themes are Mental Well-being, Rural Impact on Physical Activity, Schools and how they can help Physical Activity and Creating Connection Between Partners.
There is a requirement from Sport England that each area has a mechanism by which funding decisions can be made. It was suggested that the Health and Wellbeing Partnership, chaired by Cllr Hindle would be a suitable vehicle to provide the governance for the project. This group would consider the schemes for commissioning that arise from the consultation work in the Pathfinder and Accelerator phases of TaAF, with the approval of these decisions being delegated to the Director of Community Services in consultation with the Chair and Vice Chair of Community Services committee and reported retrospectively to committee.
Councillor Berryman was given permission to speak on this item.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
Approve the delegation for project commissioning to the Director of Community Services in consultation with the Chair and Vice Chair of Community Services as outlined.
