(Report of Director of Finance and Transformation)


The report provided information on the three key budget areas of salaries, major operational income streams and investment income.  The performance of these key budget areas, together with approved variations to the revenue budget and areas identified through revenue budget monitoring were summarised to provide an indicative overall budget position for the year.


Members were also updated on capital expenditure and variations that had been agreed in relation to the capital plan.


Attention was drawn to the fact that the projected funding gap had widened to that reported to the Cabinet in July, which represented a significant and challenging financial position for the Borough Council. 


Following consideration by the Finance, Innovation and Property Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Finance, Innovation and Property resolved that:
