10/02/2022 - 10 Year Capital Strategy 2022 to 2032

The Committee considered a report by the Director of Resources and Deputy Chief Executive (circulated previously) regarding the 10 Year Capital Strategy for 2022 to 2032.


The Head of Governance highlighted the following:


·       The Capital Strategy was a high level review of the corporate priorities, capital investment ambition, available resources, affordability and risk management in the context of ensuring the long term financial sustainability of this authority.

·       The Capital Strategy contained the medium (MTFS) and long term strategies in relation to capital funding and affordability. 

·       The Capital Financing Requirement (CFR) was predicted to remain at a high level but would decrease over the longer term.

·       The cost for external borrowing was set to remain above £1.5m over the long term period.


RECOMMENDED that the Capital Strategy 2022/23 to 2031/32 be approved.
