This report provides a summary of the
Council's Treasury Management activities during the first six
months of the year.
“The UK economy continues to face an uncertain environment in 2020/21, with Brexit negotiations and the impacts of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic. The County Council adheres to its Treasury Management Policy of using internal cash balances instead of borrowing money. This has delivered significant savings
for taxpayers, as the infrastructure to deliver more skilled, better-paid jobs is being funded at a lower cost.”
Mike Sutherland, Cabinet Member for Finance and Corporate Matters
