Reasons for Decision


The regular reporting of Revenue and Capital Budget Monitoring information provides detailed financial information to Councillors, senior officers and other interested parties on the financial performance of the Council. It also informs decision making to ensure that the Council’s priorities are delivered within the approved budget provision.


Other Options


The Council could choose to monitor its budgetary performance against an alternative timeframe but it is considered that the current reporting schedule provides the appropriate balance to allow strategic oversight of the budget by councillors and to also formally manage the Council’s exposure to financial risk.
