Management Accounting Information
The Council structure involves a single policy committee, called the Corporate Board (Previously Strategy Board), consisting of thirteen Councillors. Members of the Board work collectively in making decisions, meaning no Councillor has any individual decision-making powers outside of the Board.
The following links below will provide you with relevant papers that were subject to Corporate Board / Strategy Board approval. This includes such decisions as the annual budget and council tax setting, quarterly performance monitoring and the council's Medium Term Financial Strategy.

The Council is required to operate a balanced budget, which broadly means that cash raised during the year will meet cash expenditure. Part of the treasury management operation is to ensure that this cash flow is adequately planned, with cash being available when it is needed. Surplus monies are invested in low risk counterparties or instruments commensurate with the Council’s low risk appetite, providing adequate liquidity initially before considering investment return
The second main function of the treasury management service is the funding of the Council’s capital plans. These capital plans provide a guide to the borrowing need of the Council, essentially the longer term cash flow planning to ensure that the Council can meet its capital spending obligations. This management of longer term cash may involve arranging long or short term loans, or using longer term cash flow surpluses. On occasion any debt previously drawn may be restructured to meet Council risk or cost objectives.
