For Cabinet to consider the draft budget and MTP


Cabinet received a report on the draft revenue budget and capital programme. Given the levels of uncertainty around government funding levels beyond 2021/22 and the difficulties with accurately forecasting the longer-term implications arising as a result of the pandemic the revenue budget proposed within the report is for 2021/22 only. This ensures that the Council does not make decisions based on assumptions which are impossible to estimate at this stage given the international, national and local fiscal impact of the pandemic.


RESOLVED: That the draft revenue budget and capital programme be approved and it be noted that a supplementary report, the formal Council Tax Resolution, will accompany the final Budget to Full Council.

Details of any conflict of interest declared: None
