Effective treasury management will provide support towards the achievement of Council Plan aims and objectives. Treasury management is an integral part of the Council’s finances providing for cash flow management and financing of capital schemes and therefore underpins all of the council’s aims.
This page presents the restated Treasury Policy Statement and the Treasury Management Strategy Statement. The Strategy document is informed by guidance and advice provided by the council’s treasury advisors.
The council’s high level policies for borrowing and investments are:
- Borrowing will be affordable, sustainable and prudent and consideration will be given to the management of interest rate risk and refinancing risk. The source from which the borrowing is taken and the type of borrowing should allow the council transparency and control over its debt.
- Our primary objective in relation to investments remains the security of capital. The liquidity or accessibility of the council’s investments followed by the yield earned on investments remain important but are secondary considerations.
