To request Cabinet's approval of the Cultural
Investment Framework, following consultation.
(Cabinet Member with Special Responsibility Councillor Parr)
Cabinet received a report from the Director for Economic Growth and Regeneration, which sought approval for the Cultural Investment Framework following consultation.
The options, options analysis, including risk assessment and officer preferred option, were set out in the report as follows:
Continuing without a framework in place offers no identified benefits and risks public funds being used to promote activities that either do not provide value for money or offer no material benefit. Introducing the framework ensures fairness, consistency and transparency in terms of allocation of funds, resources and the Council’s expectations, aligning the delivery of outcomes with the Council’s priorities. The officer preferred option is to agree the draft Cultural Investment Framework.
Councillor Parr proposed, seconded by Councillor Dave Brookes:-
“That the recommendation, as set out in the report, be approved with a revision to the sustainable and deliverable business model/plan section to include ‘consider the carbon footprint of both our activities and that of the supply chain involved in their delivery.”
Councillors then voted:-
(1) That the draft Cultural Investment Framework as set out in Appendix A to the report, be approved with a revision to the sustainable and deliverable business model/plan section to include ‘consider the carbon footprint of both our activities and that of the supply chain involved in their delivery.’
Officer responsible for effecting the decision:
Director for Economic Growth and Regeneration
Reasons for making the decision:
The proposed Cultural Investment Framework is consistent with the Council Plan. The City Council invests and uses its resources to support arts and culture in the district. It is important that the Council establishes the arrangements necessary to ensure the best possible results from its contribution in a way that is fair, consistent and transparent.
