Summary cashflow 2021-22

Cashflow is the actual money that is moving in and out of the authority’s bank accounts.

The following statement shows that the authority had sufficient income to cover its outgoings for the period 2021-22. Figures for the previous year (2020-21) are also included to provide a comparison.

The decrease in the amount of cash held by us (£5.1m) was mainly due to the authority using the cash to fund its large scale projects instead of borrowing. The remainder of cash is used for Investment activity to earn interest which can have a substantial impact on cashflow.

Figures have been rounded up to the nearest £0.1m (£100,000). For full details of exact amounts, please see the full statement of accounts (currently only available in PDF format).
