Decision of Executive Councillor for Finance and Resources

  i.  Agreed the provisional carry forward requests, totalling £579,010 as detailed in Appendix A of the Officer’s report, recommended to Council to approve, subject to the final outturn position.

Any Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

Not applicable.


Scrutiny Considerations

The Committee considered a report from the Head of Finance.


In response to a question on the underspend on Finance General (p39, appendix A) and whether that meant that services had not been delivered as budgeted, the Head of Finance advised this information would be provided outside of the meeting as the cost centre was a mix of different corporate amounts and she would have to look at the detail. 


The Committee unanimously resolved by 4 votes to 0 to endorse the recommendation.


The Executive Councillor approved the recommendation.


Conflicts of Interest Declared by the Executive Councillor (and any Dispensations Granted)
