A)    That Cabinet noted the September 2016 submission of a Round 2 Heritage Lottery Fund bid for the building of a learning centre and associated improvements to the garden at Hogarth’s House – a decision is expected at the end of November 2016.

B)    That Cabinet agreed the recommendations of the report as follows:


1.     Cabinet approved the underwriting of the fund-raising strategy for the Hogarth’s House Mulberry Project capital works 2016-19 in the sum of £360,000, in support of a grant application for £1.35 million Heritage Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), as HLF needs this commitment in order to decide on the Grant.

2.     Cabinet agreed the implementation of future governance arrangements for Hogarth’s House – reported in REG 296 September 2015- for the period following November 2018 (the date of the end of the Carillion contract) on behalf of the Council, by authorising the Executive Director for Regeneration, Economic Development and Environment (the ‘Director’), in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Public Health and Leisure, to complete the Articles of Association and all necessary documentation for transfer of management to a repurposed Hogarth’s House Trust.

3.     Cabinet agreed to set core support grant for Hogarth’s House Trust from 2018-19, based on the cost of Carillion’s management of the facility and a 25% cost reduction from December 2018.
