Executive Summary

The Financial Monitoring report for the 2022/23 year end shows an underspend of £1.1m after taking account of the £7.5m of reserve transfers made earlier in the year. This is based on an approved budget of £279.1m for the year. Capital was £6.7m underspent due to the timing of various projects.

Financial Regulations state that all budget virements over £0.5m and asset writeoffs must be approved by the PCC. These are included within this decision notice.

This is being kept under review so that risks can be managed.
