The Senior Finance Business Partner introduced the report of the Director of Neighbourhoods. The report provided a summary of the year-end revenue position for the 2022/23 financial year as at the end of March 2023 for the Tourism, Communities, Culture and Leisure Committee. The report also provided Members with an overview of budget performance to enable the Committee to take ownership of the budgets and provide robust challenge and scrutiny to Officers on the performance of those budgets.


Members were informed that the year-end revenue outturn for 2022/23 represents an adverse position of £5.890m on the Committee net revenue budget of £5.359m


Members queried the footfall in leisure facilities and were informed that the performance monitoring report would be presented to the July Committee. A further query was made regarding the Council overspend and members were advised that a report was being presented to Policy and Resources Committee and Council regarding this. Members also discussed the option of building new leisure facilities and maintenance of existing premises. Members were informed there is a comprehensive programme in place to tackle update of leisure services as well as maintenance of buildings. The Terms of Reference for the committee was mentioned and a request that any subsequent reports mirror this.
