Budget monitoring

The annual budget is set every February and is monitored throughout the year.

As part of this process, monitoring reports are regularly presented throughout the year to Cabinet. These monitoring reports highlight key issues of spending, resources and the service implications of any predicted variations, plus make recommendations on the appropriate management action that needs to be taken to minimise these variations.

Revenue spending is on day-to-day costs.

Capital spending is on long term items, for example, land, buildings, new roads, major maintenance work, and vehicles.

Details will be added as and when quarterly reports are taken to Cabinet during the year.
