Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report which presented details of the Council’s financial position for the period covering 1 April to 30 June 2014 and provided an assessment of performance against budgets.

 

It was noted that financial pressures were forecast at £2,924k, compared to £3,722k at the same time last year and that it was proposed to allocate £600k of contingency to known Health and Wellbeing pressures, bringing the overall position down to £2,324k.

 

The Leader gave an overview of the forecast on a directorate basis as shown in Table 1 and detailed some of the main variations as reported in paragraphs 8 to 26. He confirmed that following the industrial action in July, that the one off saving of around £10k  would be donated to support the work of the food bank charity with the remainder going to assist Health and Wellbeing pressures.
