Clarification regarding spend on two of the
projects approved for year 1 of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund
(UKSPF), for agreement following a previous decision (dated
Please note that there are no changes to the projects benefitting from the funding, or to the amounts each project is receiving. The concurrence is to capture a change to the aspect of the Jaywick Managed Workspace project which UKSPF will be supporting, and to clarify that the repairs to the seafront ramp proposed in the previous decision constitute revenue spend, not capital spend.
To approve the following changes to spend set
out in the previous decision:-
1. Seafronts maintenance
The previous decision stated the seafront ramp was a capital scheme. This will actually be funded from the UKSPF revenue allocation.
2. Jaywick Managed Workspace – Operational Revenue
The previous decision stated that £41k of revenue funding will be used to recruit an Operations Manager. This funding will now be split into a £31k revenue element, which will be used to support the operational costs of the Sunspot in its launch and through the critical 2023 summer season. A further £10k will be allocated as capital funding, to support construction costs at the site.
There are no changes to the projects benefitting from the funding, or to the amounts each project is receiving.
Option 1 - not publishing an amended decision.
This would not allow funds to be allocated on the projects agreed
in the previous decision, as the type of project work needs to
align with the funding profile provided by Government (which
included specific revenue and capital allocations). The previous
decision incorrectly stated a project which is actually considered
revenue, would be capital work.
