Paper 6 - 29 September 2000 Meeting

ASSOCIATION OF HAMPSHIRE AND ISLE OF WIGHT AUTHORITIES 

29 September 2000

AREA COST ADJUSTMENT

 Report by the Policy Manager

RECOMMENDATION

That District Councils nominate a Member to represent them at the meeting on 17 October.

1. The "area cost adjustment" to the Revenue Support Grant compensates local authorities in the South East for the higher costs of our area. An officer group from the South East authorities has been working on research and strategy to support the retention of the area cost adjustment. There is now a need to report to Members at regional level and discuss tactics.

2. The South East England Regional Assembly is convening a meeting of Members from authorities across the South East plus Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Essex (in the Eastern Region). Each County Council and Unitary Authority is being invited to send a representative. Additionally a District Member is invited from each County area.

3. The meeting will take place on Tuesday 17 October, 10.30 am - 12.30 pm at 1 Carlton Terrace, London SW1.

4. The Chief Financial Officers’ Group is currently canvassing to propose a District Member, and nomination(s) will come forward at the meeting.
