Committee reviews Ross and Cromarty Capital Programme
A report on the current Ross and Cromarty Capital Programme was presented at the Area Committee today (Wednesday 14 August), giving members the opportunity to review progress and scrutinise the amount of money spent to date.
In the previous financial year £21,995,000 was spent on capital projects within the Ross and Cromarty area. The current year’s allocation for projects in the area is £29,141,000.
The report presented today gave councillors progress updates and details of the projects, how much was spent on these projects in 2018/19 and, for the first time, the cumulative spend up until the end of June this year.
Chair of the Committee Fiona Robertson said: “This programme delivers significant investment in a range of key projects across Ross and Cromarty. We are investing in schools, roads, bridges, flood prevention schemes and housing that will help the economy grow and which will benefit our local communities.
We recognise the need to make sure we manage our capital allocation well so I am pleased that the committee had this opportunity today to review progress of the projects. Moving forward this level of scrutiny will continue and we will all be working together to make sure we deliver the very best value for that we spend.”
