Decision details

Budget monitoring April to June 2023

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Purpose: to note the budget monitoring position to June 2023


Cabinet considered the head of finance’s budget monitoring report for the period April to June 2023, the first quarter of 2023/24. 


After carry-forward items had been removed, this showed a projected revenue overspend of £0.6 million at the year end.  The profiling of the capital programme was being reviewed.  Members noted that budget monitoring reports for later quarters in the financial year would give a better picture of likely outturn at the year end. 


In terms of the spend on agency staff, members noted that recruitment of staff was often a time-consuming process, and the use of agency staff during such periods could be an effective use of resources to improve efficiency. 


RESOLVED: to note the budget monitoring report for the period April to June 2023.
