The Director of Resources submitted a report asking committee to consider the future capital programme for this committee following a review of the existing capital programme with proposed amendments and the submission of new scheme bids.
For this committee there had originally been three schemes approved for the financial years 2022/23 to 2024/25, totalling £1,259,700. Following a review of these schemes an amendment was proposed to the Disabled Facilities Grants, totalling £138,000 over three years. This on-going grant scheme is included as an indicative value on the understanding that the actual scheme budget for each year would be set to match the actual Central Government grant funding received in that year. This equates to a £46,000 increase each year for 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25 respectively.
New capital bids had been requested to be put forward for 2025/26 and 2026/27. For this committee there had been six new bids including one for 2022/23, totalling £2,170,740. Any bids supported by committee would be considered alongside bids from all other committee by the Budget Working Group and Policy and Finance committee.
Members were reminded of the additional revenue impact that new capital schemes would commit the council to, in particular the Alternative System for Dog Waste/Litter Bins Emptying scheme, which had recurring annual revenue costs of £258,190.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
1. Confirm the schemes in the previously approved capital programme;
2. Request £138,000 of additional budget from Policy and Finance committee for the changed estimates on the Disabled Facilities Grants scheme between 2022/23 and 2024/25. This proposed increased budget is on the basis that it is fully financed by Central Government Disabled Facilities Grants finding each year; and
3. Approve all the new capital bids and consequential additional revenue cost for 2022/23, 2025/26 and 2026/27 to be forwarded to Policy and Finance committee to be considered as part of the Overall Capital Programme.
