The attached report reviews treasury
performance during 2021/22 against the Council’s Treasury
Management Strategy. This is a historic review for noting by
The 2021/22 Annual Treasury Management Report was presented by the Finance and Assets Portfolio Holder. The report reviewed the treasury activities and the actual prudential and treasury activities and the actual prudential and treasury indicators for the 2021/22 financial year, meeting the requirement of the Local Government Act 2003, the CIPFA Code of Practice on Treasury Management and the CIPFA Code for Capital Finance in Local Authorities.
The level of external debt remained at £12.8 million, below the Capital Requirement of £24 million which showed that the Council had not funded revenue activity through borrowing, a key prudential indicator which has helped to avoid incurring higher borrowing costs in the future.
