The Council approved its Capital Plan for 2024/25 on 24th January 2024.

The Council recognises five principal drivers for capital expenditure:

  • Legislative requirements
  • Efficiencies or spend to save projects
  • Maintenance of assets and operations at current approved levels
  • Service developments
  • Council priorities

Capital expenditure is funded from three sources: capital grants from Scottish Government and other sources; capital receipts from the sale of assets or from developer obligations; and borrowing.

When the Council borrows for capital expenditure, the capital financing charges incurred are met from the revenue budget. Therefore the Capital Plan has a direct impact on the revenue budget and the two are considered jointly at the same budget-setting meeting of Council.

A summary of the Plan can be reached from the link below:
