Amendment 3 - Area Board Capital Grants:

Amendment status:Rejected

The proposal is to increase the Area Board Capital Grants to the previous level of funding of £0.800m prior to the re-allocation of £0.400m to Local Highways and Footpath Improvement Groups (LHFIG), an increase of the budget of £0.400m. It is proposed that this increase in the Capital Programme is funded by borrowing.

 

There is a revenue impact of undertaking additional borrowing to fund an increase in the Capital Programme, made up of interest and Minimum Revenue Provision (MRP). This impact will not affect the 2022/23 budget as any borrowing is assumed to be undertaken at the end of the financial year and therefore no interest cost is assumed and the MRP is charged the year following the expenditure.

 

The revenue impact of this proposal is £0.020m every year from 2023/24 and will have the impact of increasing the draw from the Budget Equalisation Reserve in 2023/24 to £9.122m and increase the budget gap in 2024/25.
