Agenda item

Commissioning, Project Development and Finance Update


The item was introduced by the Area Council Manager.  Members were provided with a financial positon and forecast for expenditure based on the projects that have been proposed.  It was explained that all larger projects are commissioned on a one year (plus one year) contract. 


The Housing Migration Officer post is now vacant.  The delegated report has been written and is awaiting sign off before a request to recruit can be made.  The Area Council Manager will be involved in recruitment in conjunction with Dearne Area Council and it is anticipated that a candidate will be identified for the North Area in August. 


It was felt that it would not be appropriate to recruit to the vacant Youth Participation Officer posts until the future of the Health and Wellbeing of Young People project is determined.


Members will need to decide by the end of the year whether to continue to produce a Community Magazine


RESOLVED that Members note:-


(i)            The budget position, current financial position and the forecast for future funding commitments and


(ii)          The current position regarding the Housing Migration Officer together with the recommendation regarding the Youth Participation Officers
