CABINET 


Report of: Director of Resources 
Date: 17 May 2021 
Cabinet Portfolio: Finance 


COUNTY COUNCIL BUDGET 
CAPITAL PROGRAMME UPDATE MAY 2021 
Purpose 
To approve: 


e Concept Bids — feasibility costs required to progress prospective capital projects to 
Full Business Case. Costs are the maximum required. 


Costs can be capitalised once they can be directly attributed to an asset. 


e Full Business Cases — new projects to be included in the current capital 
programme. 


Details of which are attached in Appendix A. 

Comments by Director of Resources 

Feasibility costs will initially be funded from the Programme for Administration Reserve. 

In respect of the new capital bids to be considered, Full Business Case cost of 
£11,095,779 will be offset by external funding of £10,318,267. Cost to the Authority will be 
£777,512, however this figure will reduce if additional external funding is secured. Unless 
funded from service revenue budgets, any borrowing costs will count towards the current 
£14.07m per annum capital financing costs cap. 

As illustrated within the County Council Budget 2021-22 and Medium Term Financial Plan 
2021-22-2024-25 reported for Full Council on 4 March 2021, an additional £10m prudential 
borrowing in 2021-22 shows there is only £0.06m capacity within the proposed cap before 
it is exceeded. Capital financing costs will be revised to take into account the updated 
Capital Programme.

Authority.
