The Cabinet considered a report of the Chief Executive informing Members of the current position on the outstanding debt to the Council as at 31st July 2017.
1. That the current outstanding debt position as at 31st July 2017 and the position of debts written off to 31st July 2017 as set out in Appendices A and B of the submitted report, be noted.
2. That the write offs as detailed in Appendix B, be approved.
Reason for Decision
All reasonable steps to recover the debt have been taken and therefore where a write-off is recommended it is the only course of action available.
If the Council wishes to pursue debts for bankruptcy proceedings, it will follow the agreed and published recovery policy that covers this.
