Reason for urgency:

  • We are under pressure from central government to ensure payments are provided to affected businesses as soon as practicable and we will have to provide weekly progress updates via Delta which will then be reported back nationally by BEIS/CLG in public environment.
  • The report is late because the government only confirmed the scheme, the conditions that apply to it, and the funds available under it, within the last few days.

 

b) COVID-19 Community Testing Support Measures

Reason for urgency:

  • The council has been successful in its bid for government funding to set up and run an asymptomatic COVID 19 testing programme across the borough. 
  • The council needs to engage a third-party contractor to deliver the service on its behalf. An urgent decision is required in order to put the contract in place, mobilise the service within the binding deadlines set by government, take all required ancillary measures, and to meet the council’s aspirations to do its part to halt the spread of this devastating disease.
