24 Portfolio Holder Report - Finance and Assets pdf icon PDF 161 KB

To consider the annual report from the Finance and Assets Portfolio Holder on the progress made within the portfolio area and their plans for the future.


The Finance and Assets Portfolio Holder explained to the Committee that the latest portfolio holder report was in front of them, and that it contained a great deal of detail that wouldn’t be suitable to spend time discussing at the meeting.


He instead wanted to highlight the great achievements of the relatively small finance team, with particular thanks to the Finance Lead Specialist for her leadership. He informed the Committee that on top of their regular workload, they have maintained oversight and control of the Council’s finances during a period of great instability.


He also wished to point out the great progress that had been made with the Procurement Strategy and building works to Kendal Town Hall and South Lakeland House.


No questions were raised.


RESOLVED – That the contents of the report be noted.
