Members considered the notes from the meeting held on 18th November, 2019.
It was noted that the Head of Economic Development had made contact with reference to the Towns Fund from central government. Goldthorpe had been selected, with the potential of up to £25m available. Rather than creating a group to oversee this, it was suggested that the Dearne Approach Steering Group expand its membership to be able to take on this task. The local MP and members of local businesses had been invited to take part. Finance was already available to employ staff in order to create appropriate strategies and plans for the development.
Members questioned whether this was just for Goldthorpe, or the wider area, and it was thought that this would just cover Goldthorpe, however it was noted that Members would be briefed further when more information was available.
RESOLVED that the notes from the Dearne Approach Steering Group be received.
