The Council considered the report of the Deputy Chief Executive / Director – Resources and Section 151 Officer which sought approval for the Council’s Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) for the four financial years between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2025 (2021/22 to 2024/25). A copy of the Plan was attached as an Appendix to the report. The MTFP aimed to provide both Members and officers with a clear financial framework for delivering the Council’s Community Plan objectives over the next four years. Updating the MTFP was an essential pre-requisite to the annual budget setting for future years.
The MTFP showed that the Council was able to set a balanced budget for 2021/22, whilst being able to contribute funds to reserves in order to mitigate future anticipated shortfalls in funding. The Council would need to continually consider how best to manage demand for its services, as well as monitoring and reviewing how best to deliver services.
AGREED (unanimously) that the Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) for 2021/22 to 2024/25 be approved.
