C1287            CAPITAL MONITORING: 1ST APRIL, 2012 – 31ST JANUARY, 2013 (REF) –

 

The Scrutiny Committee (Corporate Resources) on 19 March, 2013 considered the above report of the Managing Director.

 

Details as to the financial progress on the Capital Programme up to 31st January, 2013 were appended to the report.  The Head of Financial Services referred to paragraphs 5 to 15 of the report which contained explanations from the relevant officers on those schemes where it was evident that the full year’s budget would not be spent during the year.

 

In response to a query in relation to the Llancarfan demountables, the Head of Financial Services confirmed that the funding would likely be slipped into the next financial year and the scheme reassessed.  When a question was raised as to the current position in relation to the Penarth Heights highways works and specifically the changes to the sequencing of the traffic controlled junction at Barons Court which had been programmed for February / March 2013, a local Member responded that no progress had been made.  The Head of Financial Services undertook to ascertain the current position and e-mail that information to all Members of the Committee.
