Decision details


Decision Maker: Head of Economic Growth, Regeneration & Housing Delivery

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


1) To register an Expression of Interest Form with the D2N2 LEP in readiness for future ESF funding opportunities.

2) For the Bolsover Partnership Team to work with Sheffield Futures to develop a Stage 2 bid under the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme, should they be successful at Stage 1.

Reasons for the decision:

1) NEDDC and BDC have worked together on the Ambition project which has involved NEDDC employing a team of Key Workers to help move 18-24 year olds into work. Registering an interest with the D2N2 LEP will position both Councils to work collaboratively on future funding opportunities, particularly in respect of employment support.

2) BDC have been working with Sheffield Futures to develop a bid for the BBO programme which covers the Sheffield City Region. If this bid is successful at Stage 1, there will be a need to continue work with Sheffield Futures and other partners to ensure delivery across Bolsover and North East Derbyshire accurately reflects and meets the needs of its eligible clients.

Alternative options considered:

1) Do nothing - this would limit the Council's ability to work collaboratively with other providers in the D2N2 area in relation to ESF funding opportunities.

2) Do nothing - this may result in a bid which is incompatible with the needs of local people.
