2.2  Approve the revenue carry forward proposals listed in the tables in paragraph 3.5.

2.3  Approve that all over budgets are written-off as an exception to the Budget Management Rules for 2019/20.

2.4  Approve the transfer of the net underspend of £0.12m to the Revenue Budget Contingency Reserve.

2.5  Note the revenue virements for 2019/20 reported for information in Appendix 2(i)

2.6  Note the reserve positions and the use of flexible capital receipts shown in paragraphs 3.16-3.18;

2.7  Note the outturn position of the 2019/20 capital programme in paragraph 3.24, and the funding outlined in paragraph 3.26;

2.8  Approve the capital rephasing and write-off of net underspends as listed in Appendix 3. This reflects the outturn spend position on projects against final budgets as detailed in Appendix 4(ii).

Reasons for the decision:

This report provides information about the Council’s financial performance against its revenue and capital budgets in 2019/20.

Alternative options considered:

The option to carry forward over budgeted spend could be considered which would mean that services would have to make up any deficits in 2020/21 with a considerable impact on service delivery especially in light of the financial recovery measures already required in 2020/21 in respect of mitigating the financial impacts of Covid 19.
