Capital Plan

The Council approved its Capital Plan for 2016/17 on 30 March 2016.  Carry forwards from 2015/16 were approved by the Council on 25 May 2016.

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 contributions; 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.
