C3235 CAPITAL MONITORING REPORT FOR THE PERIOD 1ST APRIL TO 31ST MAY 2016 (L) (SCRUTINY COMMITTEES – ALL)
Cabinet was advised of the progress on the 2016/17 Capital Programme for the period 1 April to 31 May, 2016 and changes to the Capital Programme were requested.
Council on 2 March, 2016 minute no 884 approved the Capital Programme for 2016/17 onwards.
Appendix 1 as attached to the report detailed financial progress on the Capital Programme as at 31 May, 2016.
Appendix 1 as attached to the report did not include requests for unspent committed expenditure to be slipped from 2015/16 into 2016/17. A request for this slippage would be included in the 2015/16 Closure of the Accounts report.
For all schemes where it was evident that the full year's budget would not be spent during the year, the relevant officers were required to provide an explanation for the shortfall and this should be taken to the earliest available Cabinet.
Appendix 2 as attached to the report provided non-financial information on capital construction schemes with a budget of over £100k. Where a budget shown in Appendix 1 as attached to the report was more than £100k but was made up of several schemes that individually were less than £100k, the scheme was not included in Appendix 2.
At the meeting, the Cabinet Member for Visible, Leisure and Regulatory Services commented that the Boverton Flooding Scheme project would go out to tender in September, with the aim to start work in December. The Project would go out to tender as a Design-and-Build scheme and he noted that due to the nature of the site, considerable specialist piling work was required.
