The council places great emphasis on the importance of capital investment as a means to regenerate our communities and providing modern and safe buildings and infrastructure. Capital investment does not only lead to improved facilities and services but creates jobs and economic benefits for local people.
The Capital Programme for 2020/21 totals approximately £88m.
Where does the money come from?
Where does the money go?
The money is allocated to a range of investment projects including maintenance of buildings, highways and neighbourhood improvements such as maintenance of bridges and other structures and funding to improve our roads, and Disabled Facility Grants to enable people to live independently in their own homes.
The council is proud of its track record in attracting capital funding and successfully delivering high-quality projects on time and within budget and will continue to do so in the future.
