The report, which informed Members of the outturn for 2021/22 and sought approval of the requested appropriations to and from reserves, was introduced by the Head of Finance.


Officers also confirmed following Member questions around the reserves that:


·         The reserve for post Covid working arrangements would be targeted at Heatlh and Wellbeing and any costs arising from the blended working pilot.

·         Income had risen across all car parks and a strategy for enforcing charges was in place.

·         The Minerals & Legal reserve enables the Authority to make decisions as a Minerals Planning Authority and to follow up those decisions as necessary.

·         A set of principles would be created for the drawing down of monies from the newly created Authority Delivery Plan Support reserve by the Head of Finance..

·         The Covid reserve was set up to cover times of uncertainty and has not been called on and £356K is proposed to be apportioned to 3 separate corporate priority reserves, the Restructuring reserve, the Authority Delivery Plan Support reserve and the ICT reserve.

·         The “restricted reserve” related to two bequests

·         That having specified rather than a general reserves provided clarity to DEFRA.
