The requirements of the code include the presentation of an annual Treasury Management Strategy (including the Annual Investment Strategy) outlining the strategy for borrowing and for managing investments, and a Capital Strategy setting out a high-level overview of how capital expenditure, capital financing and treasury management activities contribute to the provision of services. These strategies are presented to the Finance and Audit Committee prior to approval by the Full Council in March each year.
The CIPFA Code also requires us to prepare a mid-year report and an annual report on the council’s delivery of the Treasury Management Strategy. These reports are presented to the Finance & Audit Committee during the Municipal Year.
The latest Treasury Management Strategy and Capital Strategy can be located in the Policies, strategies, open data section.
