As detailed in the recommendations.


            The Corporate Finance Manager introduced the Capital Programme 2018/19 (Month 9) report which summarised the changes made to the Capital Programme 2018/19 since it was set in February 2018 to the end of Month 9 (December 2018, along with expenditure to date and projected outturn.


            The Capital Programme had seen a net increase of £0.903m during the period, which comprised of:


·         Net increases in the programme of £3.133m (Council Fund £4.110m, Housing Revenue Account £0.977m); and

·         Net Carry Forward to 2019/20, approved at Month 6 (£2.230m).


Actual expenditure was £41.316m.


The final outturn for 2017/18 was a minor funding deficit of £0.068m.  There had been a number of capital receipts in year, a request for an additional allocation of £0.500m towards the relocation of services to Ty Dewi Sant and a small increase in capital funding announced in the Final Settlement.  In addition, in November Welsh Government (WG) announced an additional £100m of capital funding spread across 2018/19 to 2020/21.  All that together, taken with the original projected shortfall of £8.216m in the capital programme 2018/19 to 2020/21, put the current funding deficit for the three year period at £1.428m.  That was in advance of any additional capital receipts or other funding being released.
