Capital receipts and redundancies

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

To the information officer,

I am emailing to request information from the council under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

For each of the following financial years: 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 (up to the date on which you received this request) I request the following information:

A) The total amount of capital receipts (in £) received by the council following the disposal of any type of asset

B) A breakdown of the use of capital receipts within each financial year by the following three categories:
i)To help meet the cost of borrowing related to capital expenditure
ii)To invest in new capital expenditure
iii) To finance the revenue costs of service reform (as introduced in March 2016 - https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk...)
iv) Other

C) A list of service reforms financed through capital receipts since flexible use of capital receipts was introduced in March 2016, including:
i) The date the reform began
ii) The amount (in £) of capital receipts used
iii) The savings target at the time
iv) The % of that savings target which has been met to-date

D) The amount of capital receipts (in £) used to meet the cost of redundancies made (or in the process of being made) by the council during each financial year

E) The number of redundancies made by the local authority in each financial year broken down by the service they relate to

I would like to receive this information electronically a spreadsheet, with the points above as the column headers if possible

If the decision is made to withhold some of this information using exemptions in the Act, please inform me of that fact and cite the exemptions used.

If you need clarification please contact me. Under your section 16 duty to provide advice and assistance I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way before the 20th working day.

I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Davies

Dear Lincoln City Council,
