Treasury management strategy

The Council sets a Treasury Management strategy before the start of each year. This details the Council's planned approach to managing the risks associated with investment and borrowing, including limits to investments with different counterparties. It also sets out the proposed framework for determining how much of the Council's revenue funds will be set aside to repay debt, i.e. the ‘Minimum Revenue Provision’.

The Treasury Management strategy has previously included the proposed ‘prudential indicators’ for managing the capital programme and associated borrowing. From 2019/20 there is a new requirement to prepare an annual capital strategy, which will include the proposed ‘prudential indicators’.
