The Finance Specialist presented a report which gave the Licensing Committee the opportunity to consider the draft budget estimates and the funding available to deliver their services for the financial years 2020/21 to 2024/25, prior to its submission to Council on 25 February 2020.


The Finance Specialist referred to Appendix 1 which excluded recharges for current and future years and explained that this was due to the fundamental restructuring of the Council’s staffing as part of the Customer Connect Programme. It was planned to calculate internal recharges in autumn 2020 when the new operating model had been in place for six months.


RESOLVED – That the 2020/21 to 2024/25 draft budget estimates be noted.
