Cabinet considered the report of the Leader of the Council and the Cabinet Member for Performance and Resources that sought Members to review the Council’s Draft Money Plan and budget proposals.

 

The Leader of the Council highlighted the key features of the report.  He thanked the Finance Team and Section 151 Officer for their work.  The Cabinet Member for Performance and Resources emphasised that this draft represented a best assessment of the Council’s financial position prior to the Local Government Settlement expected to be announced later in the month.  She further advised that the budget had been set with median estimates but that an impact from possible COVID-19 restrictions should be anticipated.  The Cabinet Member for Performance and Resources expressed her own gratitude to the Section 151 Officer, Financial Services, and Accountancy Managers.
