Minutes:

The Interim s151 Officer presented a report which provided details of the council’s overall finance and performance position for the period 1 October to 31 December 2019, together with an overview of any emerging issues.

 

The financial pressures facing the council were projected at £2.3m after applying existing contingency.  This was higher than previous years’ forecasts at this stage.  The position within each directorate was summarised in Table 1 at paragraph 11 of the report and detailed in Annex 1.  The continuing pressures within Children’s and Adult Social Care reflected the national situation.  Actions being taken to address these and other budget pressures were detailed in paragraphs 5-11 and Annex 1.  The position would continue to be monitored carefully to ensure that overall expenditure was contained within the approved budget.

 

With regard to performance, progress had been made in all areas across the 8 outcomes of the new Council Plan, with no specific areas of concern regarding delivery within the plan period.  Highlights were summarised in paragraph 18 and updates against each of the 78 commitments in the plan were provided in Annex 2.  The 5 indicators with a good direction of travel based on the latest available data were set out in paragraph 25; the 2 with a poor direction of travel were shown in paragraph 26.  Further details were set out in Annex 3.

 

Resolved:  That the finance and performance information be noted.

 

Reason:     To ensure that expenditure remains within the approved budget.
