Agenda item

2017/18 Revenue and Capital Budgets

Joint Report the Corporate Director: Regeneration and Local Services and the Corporate Director: Resources / Treasurer to the Joint Committee.



The Joint Committee considered a report which set out for Members’ consideration proposals with regards to the 2017/18 Revenue and Capital Budgets for the Central Durham Crematorium (for copy see file of minutes).


The Principal Accountant advised that the changes in comparison to the 2016/17 budget were set out within the report and noted that the updated positions in relation to the SLA and Fee and Charges as agreed at the previous items were incorporated.  Members were reminded of works as had been set out within the Service Asset Management Plan (SAMP) and agreed by the Committee at its September meeting, now included within the budget, though a number of these represented one-off works including the relining of one of the cremators.


The Joint Committee was reminded that the distribution of surplus to the constituent Authorities remained the same in 2017/18 and the Committee may wish to revisit this for the 2018/19 budget.  The Principal Accountant concluded by noting that the projected level of reserves as at 31 March 2018 was £1,533,237, giving a strong financial position for the Joint Committee going forward.




(i)       That the Joint Committee note and approve the revenue and capital           budget proposals contained within the report.

(ii)      That the forecast level of reserves and balances at 31 March 2018 be           noted.
