Budget 2024/25 including Fees and Charges

In presenting the 2024/25 draft budget to Cabinet, the Flexible use of Capital Receipts Policy was also presented for approval.


In April 2022 the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities (DLUHC) announced that this initiative had been extended again. This time for the three years from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2025 although redundancy costs are not now covered, except where such redundancy costs are necessarily incurred and limited to the amounts available as statutory redundancy payments.


As a result of the above the revised policy was taken to Cabinet to be adopted.
