(1) That the Council backs the bid to become UK City of Culture 2025. The bid will be led by a Culture Trust and supported by the Cultural Place Partnership and Cultural Voice Network.
(2) That Council be recommended to approve Section 9 - Option 3 of this report and allocate funding up to a maximum of £1,435,000 over 3 years, as detailed in appendix 3 and that this funding be made available to the accountable bodies concerned via existing Council annual grant application protocols or in the case of contracts for services that are awarded through compliant procurement procedures. It is noted that this investment will be used to leverage much greater external investment in the cultural sector in the District.
