On 15th July 2021, the Executive received a report summarising the current position on capital expenditure and receipts following the 1st quarter of 2021/22 and agreed a revised Capital Programme for the four-year period 2021/22 to 2024/25. The Committee considered a report highlighting changes agreed by the Executive and Leader in respect of the Capital Programme for the Adult Care and Health Portfolio.
The Head of Finance for Adults, Health and Housing advised Members that as there were no new schemes, only a couple of changes had been made since the last report was presented. The changes within the Adult Care and Health Portfolio Capital Programme related to the net underspend 2020/21 being rephased into 2021/22, and the rephasing of the Learning Disability (LD) scheme from 2021/22 to 2022/23 as the majority of the expenditure was expected to be required next year.
In response to a question, the Head of Finance for Adults, Health and Housing said that the £10.7m total approved estimate for the LD scheme, listed in Appendix A, dated back a number of years and related to LD provision that had been decommissioned. This money was ringfenced for LD schemes – at the time the report was written it was anticipated that around £100k would be spent this year on furniture and equipment for day centres, however an increase to this figure may be seen in the Quarter 2 report.
RESOLVED that the Portfolio Holder be recommended to note the
changes agreed by the Executive on 15th July 2021.
