Capital Receipts Update

-        Strategic Director of Resources to report.

Minutes:

Councillor Akhtar, Deputy Leader, introduced a report by the Strategic Director of Resources, which highlighted changes to the forecast of capital receipts and set out in summary the financial position.

 

The costs of preparing the assets for marketing and sale were netted from the disposal proceeds and where possible (and appropriate), the purchaser was responsible for fees.

 

Maintenance costs of Housing Revenue Account assets until sale were funded from the Housing Revenue Account account.  Maintenance costs of General Fund Assets until sale were currently unbudgeted.

 

As with all property transactions a capital receipt could not be guaranteed until the sale was completed. If the current economic climate continued to depress the property market, the risks associated with achieving targets would continue to increase.

 

Resolved:-  That the position on the current status of the capital receipts be noted.
