To review the budget, fees and charges, growth bids, savings bids and capital bids for the committee’s areas of responsibility.
The Chief Accountant advised the Committee that this year’s budget setting process had been amended to take into account feedback received from members following last year’s process. The report presented to the Committee was to consider only what was allocated to the Corporate Policy & Resources Cost Codes; a detailed report that covered all committees would be brought before the Committee on 20 February 2023.
The Committee were advised that savings had been identified by removing budgets that were no longer being used and that the miscellaneous figures were being looked at. Any amount over £5,000 showing as miscellaneous would have to be allocated to a budget.
The Committee resolved to agree the report.
