The Corporate Director of Customer & Corporate Services presented a report which set out the council’s overall finance and performance position for the period 1 July to 30 September 2018, together with an overview of any emerging issues.

 

The financial pressures facing the council were projected at £619k, broadly in line with previous years at this stage, and it was still anticipated that the council would out-turn within the approved budget.  Details of forecast variations within individual directorates and corporate budgets were set out in paragraphs 7 to 29 of the report.  Funding available from the Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool included an anticipated £2m from business rates income and the award of £1,395k for three schemes, as detailed in paragraphs 30 to 32. 

 

Details of performance under the individual areas in the Performance Framework of the Local Plan were set out in paragraphs 37 to 104.  Key statutory services in particular continued to perform well, having seen investment in recent years. 

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the finance and performance information in the report be noted.

 

                   (ii)      That the allocation of funding from the Leeds City Region Business Rates Pool set out in paragraph 30 be approved.

 

                   (iii)     That £125k be allocated from the waste reserve to provide additional resilience within the waste service over the winter months by providing a budget so that staff can be retained over the period prior to the recommencement of garden waste collections in April.
