Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Approval is sought in respect of the provisional carry forward of revenue budgets from 2022/23 into 2023/24.


Matter for Decision

The report presented details of anticipated variances from budgets, where resources were requested to be carried forward into the 2023/24 financial year in order to undertake or complete activities anticipated to have taken place in 2022/23.


Decision of Executive Councillor for Housing

      i.         Agreed the provisional carry forward requests, totalling £440,840 as detailed in Appendix A, subject to the final outturn position.


Reason for the Decision

As set out in the Officer’s report.


Any Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

Not applicable.


Scrutiny Considerations

The Committee received a report from the Assistant Head of Finance and Business Manager.


The Head of Housing Maintenance and Assets said the following in response to a Member’s question:

      i.         The delay with the Water Conservation Project was due to a member of staff leaving and a procurement exercise being carried out. The request to carry forward funding was to allow the project to conclude. The Net Zero Retrofit Project Officer was now undertaking the work with consultants. An interim report was expected at Easter with a final report two weeks later. It was hoped that water conservation trialling measures would be started in May.


The Committee resolved by 10 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)
