Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for Finance presented the report which set out proposals for a local restrictions business support grant scheme over two phases.  He thanked the officers involved in drafting the scheme and the Chairs of MVSC and Merton Chamber of Commerce who had agreed to sit on the panel with Council officers to administer the scheme.  A review would be undertaken at the end of phase one which would inform the criteria for phase two which would come back to Cabinet for a separate decision.

 

The Director of Corporate Services advised that dates had already been set up in January to process the applications.

 

The Chair echoed the thanks and welcomed the recognition by central government for the Council’s efforts in distributing money quickly to local businesses earlier on in the pandemic.

That the Additional Restrictions Grant Policy for Phase one be agreed.
