Decision details

Report of the Director of Finance and Business Improvement - Medium Term Financial Strategy and Budget Proposals 2017/18

Decision Maker: Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To agree the Medium Term Financial Strategy and Budget Proposals 2017/18 for services within the remit of the Committee for submission to Policy and Resources Committee.

Decision:

1.  That it be submitted to Policy and Resources Committee that the proposed budget reduction of £45,000 within planning policy for 2017/18 is not supported, as it is believed that to make this cut would lead to a reduction in the service to a level of deterioration which would be unacceptable. It is therefore requested that alternative areas for savings be considered.

 

2.  That further comment on future years be deferred for consideration following the results of the planning service review.
