Minutes:

The Executive Member received a report as part of the consultation on the 2011/12 budget process.  The report presented the 2011/12 budget proposals for Neighbourhoods and Housing. It included:

 

  • The national context regarding local government funding and the implications for City of York Council.
  • The approach that has been adopted to develop budget proposals.
  • The outcomes of the customer budget consultation.
  • The revenue budget for 2010/11 to show existing budgets.

  • The cost of pay and price increases and increments for the portfolio.
  • Proposals for service pressure costs and savings options for the portfolio area.
  • Fees and charges.
  • The Housing Revenue Account.

 

The Executive Member made the following comments:

 

  • The merging of the Communities and Neighbourhoods directorates had given scope to improve on efficiency and further reduce costs.
  • Important to protect street level services.
  • The letter from residents of the Glebe was noted and would be referred to the Executive as part of the Housing Capital programme.
  • The 77.7% increase in relation to adult interment at Dringhouses cemetery seems to be excessive and suggested that it be increased over the next two years.

 

The Executive Member thanked officers for all their hard work on the budget process.
