Report of the Executive Director of Community and Children’s Services.


The Committee received a report of the Executive Director, Community and Children’s Services which provided information on residential service charge expenditure for 2022/23. It also compared the outturn with the 2022/23 estimate and the 2021/22 actual expenditure.


Members noted that the presentation of the Service Charges had been raised at the City Corporation’s Finance Committee.  The Officer explained that this would be looked at with the Chamberlain and reminded Members of the challenges in respect of the revised energy bills, noting that the estimates had also been affected by last year’s pay award to staff. The Chair asked if the next meeting of the Committee could be sighted on the information sent to residents; redacted for data protection.  The Executive Director advised that the Service Charge Working Party already receives this information.  The Chair suggested an

an informal session with officers in respect of service charges, before the December meeting, by way of a training session for Members.

RESOLVED, that – the report be noted.
