Minutes:

Further to Minute No. 208 of the meeting of the Cabinet held on 19th March, 2014, consideration as given to a report presented by Stuart Booth, Director of Finance, which provided details of the current forecast outturn for the 2013/14 programme and enabled the Council to review the capital programme for the financial years 2014/15 to 2016/17.

 

The budget process that led to the original Capital Programme for 2013/14 to 2016/17 ensured that the Council’s capital investment plans were aligned with its strategic priorities and vision for Rotherham.

 

In order to maintain that strategic link and make best use of the capital resources available to the Council, it was important that the programme was kept under regular review and where necessary revisions were made. This programme was initially reviewed in July, 2013, following the finalisation of the 2012/13 outturn capital expenditure and financing and had now been the subject of further reviews, the result of which was reflected in the Directorate summary table as set out in the report along with the detailed analysis of the programme for each Directorate.

 

Clarification was sought on the A57 Improvement Scheme, which was nearing completion, and whether the schedule of works completion date had slipped any.

 

Resolved:-  (1)  That the report be received and the contents noted.

 

(2)   That the recommendation to approve the updated 2013/14 to 2016/17 Capital Programme be noted.
