Joint report of the Chamberlain and the Director of Open Spaces.


The Committee considered a joint report of the Chamberlain and the Director of Open Spaces updating Members on the latest approved revenue budget for 2018/19 and seeking approval for a provisional revenue budget for 2019/20 for ‘The Commons’, for subsequent submission to the Finance Committee.


In response to a question regarding adequate funds to cover the additional 8% of assets to be maintained, the Chamberlain confirmed that the City Surveyor had bid for and approved the additional resources required.


RESOLVED – That, the Committee:


  • Approve the provisional 2019/20 revenue budget for submission to the Finance Committee;


  • Authorise the Chamberlain, in consultation with the Director of Open Spaces, to revise these budgets to allow for any further implications arising from Corporate Projects, departmental reorganisations and other reviews, and changes to the Additional Works Programme. Any changes over £50,000 would be reported to Committee;


  • Delegate to the Chamberlain any minor budget changes for 2018/19 and 2019/20 as a result of the completion of the asset verification exercise; and


  • Approve  the draft capital and supplementary revenue budget.
