Treasury Management Annual Report 2018/19 pdf icon PDF 84 KB

To consider a report of the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Devolution.


The report seeks to inform the Cabinet on the operation and effectiveness of the Council's Treasury Management function for 2018/19.  Throughout 2018/19 the Council complied with its legislative and regulatory requirements.  The key actual prudential and treasury indicators detailing the impact of capital expenditure activities during the year, with comparators are found in the main body of the report. 


The Borough Treasurer confirms that borrowing was only undertaken for a capital purpose and the statutory borrowing limit (the authorised limit) was not breached.


This annual review report is a backward-looking review of the treasury management operation for the previous financial year and is the last report in the 2018/19 reporting cycle.


The Cabinet is asked to recommend that the Council Meeting:


        Approve the actual 2018/19 prudential and treasury indicators in this report;

        Note the annual treasury management report for 2018/19;

        Note that changes have been made to the Council’s Treasury Management Policy Statement and Practices during 2018/19 to accommodate the requirements of the revised CIPFA Codes published in December 2017.
