The Housing Revenue Account was currently showing a balance budget position with income matching expenditure. A final account position for the training service which was transferred to Bishop Auckland during the year was currently being calculated.

 

Specific reference was made to paragraph 7 of the report which set out the significant balance sheet items in order to provide a wider perspective on the Council’s financial standing.

CAPITAL PROGRAMME EXPENDITURE AND FINANCING POSITION TO 31ST DECEMBER 2008 pdf icon PDF 128 K

Report of Director of Resources.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report detailing the actual capital programme expenditure and financing position as at 31st  December 2008, committed expenditure, probable outturn spend as at 31st March, 2009 commitments carried forward into 2009/2010 and estimated budget savings and pressures (for copy see file of Minutes).

 

Specific reference was made to table 2 which summarised the actual spend up to December 2008 across all portfolios.

 

Members noted that the gross spend in the first nine months to 31st December 2008 was £11.248m against the capital programme budget of £26.539m, which represented 42% of the total budget.  In addition some £5.253m of spend was committed giving a total of £16.501m of actual and committed spend, or some 62% of the total budget.

 

It was anticipated that some £5.15m would be needed to be carried forward into 2009/10 to enable the agreed capital programme to be completed.  Therefore the total revised estimated costs of the programme were £26.289m compared to a budget of £26.539m giving a saving of £0.250m.

 

RESOLVED :            That the updated nine month spend position to 31st                                          December 2008, the amendments to the Capital                                           Programme, the probable outturn position and the                                               commitments carried forward into 2009/10 be noted.
