BUDGET MONITORING 2021/22

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Children, Education and Families

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Decision:

That the latest projected overspend of £1,706,000 forecast on the controllable budget, based on information as at May 2021 be noted.

 

Reasons for the decision:

The Resources Portfolio Plan includes the aim of effective monitoring and control of expenditure within budget and includes the target that each service department ill spend within its own budget.  Bromley’s Best Value Performance Plan “Making a Difference” refers to the Council’s intention to remain amongst the lowest Council Tax levels in outer London and the importance of greater focus on priorities.  The four-year financial forecast report highlights the financial pressures facing the Council. It remains imperative that strict budgetary control continues to be exercised in 2021/22 to minimise the risk of compounding financial pressures in future years.
