(3)  Cabinet recommend to Council that:

 

(a)  The budget in respect of the General Fund as set out in Appendix 1 of the report be approved as the Current Budget for 2021/22

 

(b)  The budget in respect of the Housing Revenue Account (HRA) as set out in Appendix 3 of the report be approved as the Current Budget for 2021/22

To enable revised budgets to be prepared as early as possible within the financial year, in order to provide sufficient time to allow any planned changes to be delivered.

Careful budget management, use of reserves ring fenced for providing resilience when needed, and the ongoing progression of the Transformation Agenda has mitigated this.
