Coast to Capital European Structural & Investment Funds 2014 – 20
Decision Maker: Greater Brighton Economic Board
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
32.1 The Board considered a report that provided an update on European Structural & Investment Fund (ESIF) funding in the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (C2C LEP) area including a summary of the thematic priorities, match funding requirements and likely timescales. The report also provided information on the C2C ESIF Committee and sought a Greater Brighton representative and alternative to be nominated to sit on the Committee. The report was supplemented with a presentation.
32.2 John A. Peel added that the issue was a complex one. Coast to Capital as an area would not be making decisions and instead would make recommendations to central government for endorsement. Furthermore, there would be a very short timeframe to work to as progressed had been significantly delayed by a misunderstanding from the EU regarding the format of LEP’s.
32.3 RESOLVED- That the Greater Brighton Economic Board:
(1) Notes the update on the C2C ESIF Programme;
(2) Agrees the nomination of the Chair of the Brighton & Hove Economic Partnership as the Greater Brighton representative on the C2C ESIF Committee;
(3) Agrees the nomination of the Director of the Shoreham Port Authority as the Greater Brighton alternate on the C2C ESIF Committee, and;
(4) Agrees to task the Greater Brighton Officer Programme Board with continuing to develop a pipeline of ESIF projects, working with partners in Greater Brighton and across the wider C2C LEP area.
