Activities that are the core business of a Territorial Local Authority (TLA) or Council Controlled Organisation (CCO)

Applications, whether made by a Territorial Local Authority (TLA) or Council Controlled Organisation (CCO) or another individual or organisation, for projects involving activities associated with a TLA or subsidiaries of council (e.g. a CCO) need to demonstrate clearly how the proposed activity sits outside the TLA/CCO’s core business, by showing:

  • that the council hasn’t previously delivered this activity
  • that the activity is not included in any key planning documents e.g. arts and culture strategy, annual plan
  • that the activity is not identified in current agreed workplans and/or operating budgets

To demonstrate the above please include, as an attachment to your application, the relevant sections of key documents and make the above explicit in your application.
