The Area Council Manager spoke to the report, reminding Members that at the Area Council meeting on 19th July, 2018 a further £20,000 had been devolved from Area Council budgets to the Ward Alliance Fund.
From a total allocation of £40,000, £13,980.54 remained to allocate. A number of applications have already been received to be considered at the next meeting of the Ward Alliance.
Members noted the review of the Ward Alliance Governance Framework which was ongoing, and discussed the possibility of devolving future Area Council finance to the Ward Alliance Fund to be prescribed for allocation to specific priority areas.
It was noted that preparations were being made for the Area Council to consider the Area Priorities in the near future, and that the Ward Alliance may also wish to do so.
RESOLVED that the report be noted.
