Anglia Revenues and Benefits Partnership - Local Housing Allowance (LHA) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA) - Funding Update (Minute No. 07/09)

Meeting: 12/05/2009 - Cabinet (Item 51)

Anglia Revenues and Benefits Partnership - Local Housing Allowance (LHA) and Employment Support Allowance (ESA) - Funding Update (Agenda item 19)

Minutes:

The options available were to:

 

1)           note the report and approve the extension of this key post; or

 

2)           reject the report and repay the surplus to the DWP.

 

The reasons for the recommendation were to provide an update on the project and to extend the key post as it had proved invaluable in terms of maximising income received on behalf of the three partner authorities.  As the post holder had been seconded into this role, the post, Council Tax Officer, had also been backfilled on a fixed-term contract.

 

RESOLVED that a supplementary budget, to be funded from the Department for Works and Pensions (DWP), as outlined in the report be approved.
