Capital Strategy 2012/13 to 2015/16
The purpose of this report was to set the Capital Strategy for the period 2012/13 to 2015/16, based around two over-riding principles:
§ The capital programme was priority led, in that it particularly reflected the need for growth on the Shropshire economy and flourishing local communities; and
§ That the revenue costs of the capital programme were affordable.
1.2 The updated capital programme contained in this report, incorporated the updated capital grant allocations for 2012/13 and followed a review of the programme to re-prioritise schemes based on current priorities and to ensure the programme was affordable based on the projected level of capital resources available to the Council.
