Minutes:

Cllr Lynden Stowe provided an update on the year-end forecast for the 2021/22 County Council’s Revenue and Capital Budgets.

 

The forecast revenue year end position based on January 2022 (Period 10) forecasts for the 2021/22 financial year was an overspend of £946k all of which is non Covid-19 related.

 

A balanced position was forecast in relation to Covid-19 expenditure and income.

 

The largest non-Covid-19 budget variance was the £8.893 million forecast overspend in Children and Families – this overspend was partially offset by the £6.524 million underspend in Technical & Countywide. The overspend in Children and Families reflected the continuing pressure on external placements. Social care staffing and disability services were also over-spending.

 

Capital –Theforecast outturn position for 2021/22 is £137.910 million, against the budget of £153.404 million, giving a forecast in-year slippage of 15.494 million.
