The Director of Resources submitted a report asking committee to agree a revised revenue budget for 2021/22 for this committee.
Committee were reminded that at this time of year the estimates are revised for the current financial year in order to predict the likely outturn on the budget. The budget this year had been particularly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Whilst committee income and expenditure may increase or decrease at the revised estimate, items such as budgeted core government funding and council tax precept remain fixed. As a result, any compensating movement is within earmarked reserves and general fund balances. Decisions and actions required as a result of committee meetings have been incorporated into the budget setting process.
Committee were informed that the difference between the revised and original estimate was a decrease in net expenditure of £20,330, or £33,150 after allowing for movements on earmarked reserves. A summary of the reasons for the movements was provided for members’ information.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
Agree the revenue revised estimate for 2021/22.
