Decision details

Targeted Budget Management (TBM) 2009/10 Month 4

Decision Maker: Cabinet (pre 2012)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To update members on the Capital and Revenue financial performance of the Authority's General Fund and Housing Revenue Accounts at Month 4.



1.      That Cabinet notes the forecast outturn for the General Fund, Section 75 Partnerships and Housing Revenue Account (HRA) for 2008/09 as at month 4.


2.      That Cabinet notes that further recovery measures will be identified by month 6 to achieve a balanced budget.


3.      That Cabinet notes the forecast outturn position on the capital budgets as at month 4.


4.      That Cabinet approves the changes to the capital budget as summarised in Appendix 3 and detailed in Appendices 4 – 6.

Reasons for the decision:

1.      Budget monitoring is a key element of good financial management, which is necessary in order for the council to maintain financial stability and operate effectively.


2.      The proposed budget allocations and capital budget changes are necessary to maintain a balanced programme and effective financial management.

Alternative options considered:

The forecast outturn position on council controlled budgets is an overspend of £2.385 million. Any overspend that exceeds risk provisions and contingencies will need to be funded from General Fund reserves, which will then need to be replenished as part of the 2010/11 budget and MTFS proposals.
