Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Resources and Deputy Chief Executive submitted a report asking Committee to consider the future capital programme for this Committee, covering the period 2024/25 to 2028/29.


For this Committee there were originally nine schemes approved for the financial years 2024/25 to 2027/28, totalling £1,842,500. No changes to the existing capital programme 2024/25 to 2027/28 were proposed.


It was noted that the Disabled Facilities Grants scheme was fully funded by Central Government each year. The 2024/25 and 2027/28 Disabled Facilities Grants budgets have been set at indicative amounts which are equal to the current year’s funding from Central Government. Should the Central Government funding in any year be higher or lower than budgeted for, then the scheme budget will be adjusted accordingly.


New capital bids had been put forward for 2028/29 for Committee to consider. For this Committee there had been four new bids totalling £893,000. £393,000 of this total is expected to be funded by Central Government.  As such, the total additional funding needed to support these new bids would be £500,000.




Approve the future capital programme for this Committee’s services for onward recommendation to Policy and Finance Committee for the period 2024/25 to 2028/29, based on the proposals included in the report.
