Q3 Revenue and Capital Budget Monitoring 2021/22

Report of the Commissioner.


Members received a report of the Commissioner regarding the Quarter 3 Revenue and Capital Budget monitoring 2021/22.


With increasing inflation, Members voiced concern about increasing costs caused by delaying of projects within the capital programme and assurance was sought as to how this would be mitigated. It was felt that there were significant pressures from the Accommodation Programme and IT.


Members sought more information about the impact of vacancy management and the impact on Force delivery. It was noted that vacancies were high for both officers and staff at the Force.


It was noted that the Business Rates on New Street were being considered at appeal.


The Force would not be relying on net savings to deliver capital projects.


RESOLVED, that the report be noted.
