Report by the Chief Financial Officer

 

8

Under reference to paragraph 12 of the Minute of the meeting dated 31 March 2016 a report by the Chief Financial Officer sought approval for the Board's Reserves Policy.

 

Discussion took place on the Reserves Policy and the implications of the amendment that reduces the reserves from 3% to 2%.

 

Mr Passmore stated that in line with paragraph 3.1 of the report it was clear that reserves were not there to alleviate core overspend.

 

The Chief Financial Officer agreed this was the case however although reserves were to be held to provide security against unexpected cost pressures they also could not be held if they were needed to ensure statutory work was carried out.

 

Thereafter the Board agreed to: 

  1. approve the Reserves Policy as detailed in Appendix 1 of the report; and

  2. the next review of the Policy taking place no later than March 2012.
