Reasons for the decision:

The capital programme is reviewed on a quarterly basis in accordance with the Council’s Capital Strategy. The forecast position is reported to the Council Capital Board with any required programme update reported to Cabinet and Council for approval. This is required to enable schemes in the programme to proceed and to approve additions and changes to the programme.

Alternative options considered:

Changes to the capital programme are undertaken within the resource constraints imposed on it.  No new schemes can be added unless specific additional resources are identified.  Alternative options for new capital spending are considered as part of the budget setting process in the light of the funding available and the overall financial position.
