The Programme Director CCRCD presented a report to the JOSC in respect of the effective operation of its wider Investment Fund. She explained to members that the WIF totalled £495m and comprises HM Treasury Grant Funding amounting to £375m over 20 years and Council contributions of £120m. She advised members that the UK Competitive index was set out earlier this week and showed that Caerphilly was out of the bottom 10, however Merthyr and Blaenau Gwent were still there and this had not changed for 25 years. The City Deal has three major targets to meet – a 5% GVA increase, 25,000 new high skill jobs and leverage of £4bn additional private investment.
The Programme Director advised that within the report there were 40 activities in accordance with the provisions of the JWA in relation to the delivery of the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal that were deliverable.

She advised that the Framework and impacts would be set out to the Joint Cabinet on the 10 June 2019. She added that specific figures and targets would be included in the individual business plans once individual projects had been approved by the Joint Cabinet.
The Chair of the Joint Cabinet added that the model for the CCRCD was different in that there was no set list of projects but that the funds were open for people to approach them with propositions.
A member asked what the key risks were with regards to internal resources and what was needed for the CCRCD to succeed.
The Chair of the CCRCD Joint Cabinet advised that additional resource had just been approved by the joint Cabinet and the advertising of posts had already begun.
A member asked how the high level of social exclusion would be managed.
