Introduction
Budget Book 2007/08
Revenue Estimates 2007/08
Introduction
Each year service areas build up their annual budget. Guidance in the form of a budget manual is provided,
which stipulates the inflation rates to be used to uplift the current year base budget. Where alternative rates
are applied, justification is given and reviewed. In addition to inflation, departments identify commitments,
savings and make bids for growth, all of which are reviewed and agreed as part of the budget process.
Formal budget review is undertaken through the following:
Joint financial management services (FMS) and policy and performance review 
Officer challenge 
Member’s challenge
This process of review and challenge is in addition to the review and challenge undertaken within
departments by management and senior finance staff.
All elements of review combine to give assurance that the revenue budget is robust. Under Section 25 of
the Local Government Act 2003, the finance director (chief finance officer) has a statutory duty to include
a statement as to his view of the robustness of the estimates included in budget reports. This is achieved
by ensuring processes are in place to scrutinise and review budgets.
Other publications
Financial management services within strategic services also produces the following publications which
contain information on the Council’s finances:
l Council tax and business rates leaflet (issued each year with the respective bills)

Spending Plans and Council Tax
Budget Book 2007/08
Resources
Background
Last year (2006/7) saw a major change in the way central government funds local authorities. It introduced
the dedicated schools grant (DSG) to fund schools. This grant is mainly dependant on the number of pupils
attending Southwark schools as counted in the January Pupil Led Annual School Census or PLASC. Final
confirmation of pupil numbers is not known until after the 1 April and therefore an estimate has to be
made when setting the budget for the amount of grant that will be received and therefore the level of
expenditure permitted for schools. For 2007/8, the council expects to receive £167m in DSG compared
with an adjusted DSG of £156m in 2006/7, the latter taking into account transfer of schools to academies
and a fall in pupil numbers. The actual DSG received in 2006/7 was £168m. To estimate the DSG the
council must take account of schools that are scheduled to become academies in September 2007 and the
full year effect of those schools that became academies in September 2006. In both cases the number of
pupils for which the council is paid DSG is reduced.
The council tax requirement is now solely dependant on the council’s net budget requirement for non-
schools services and the government grant received for these services known as formula grant.
The ratio between funding from the government and council tax to meet the net budget requirement is as
follows:

Financial Year
As shown the council tax currently pays for 28% of the council’s budget requirement. In  2005/6 before
the introduction of the DSG, council tax paid for 17%. The increased level of council tax funding reduces
the gearing effect of budget changes. For example a 1% increase in budget requirement in 2005/6 would
have meant a 5.8% increase in the council tax requirement, whereas now in 2007/8 a similar % increase
would require a 3.6% increase in the council tax requirement.

Formula grant
Formula grant can be defined as revenue support grant and redistributed non- domestic rates (business rates).
The government calculates the level of formula grant based on how much it believes Southwark needs to
spend. Last year (2006/7) has seen a change in the underlying methodology for determining the allocation
of formula grant to authorities. 
The basis of allocation of formula grant moved away from formula spending shares and assumed levels of
council tax to a new four block model which is as follows:
Block
Description 
Relative needs
The formulae for calculating this block are designed to reflect the differences in
deprivation, population and other characteristics of an authority.
Relative resource
The relative resource amount is a negative figure reflecting the ability of an
area/authority to raise resources. This is achieved by looking at authorities council
taxbase data, which provides a measure of Band D equivalent properties.
Central allocation
The central allocation represents the allocation of the resources the government
has left for distribution after calculating the relative needs and resources blocks
for each authority. The allocation is on a per head basis.
Floor damping
This block is used to limit the impact of changes in funding. Each authorities
allocation is determined through the calculation of the blocks above. However to
provide some year on year stability, each authority is guaranteed a minimum
increase or floor percentage increase. To pay for funding this minimum increase
in grant, the allocation to authorities entitled to more than the floor increase is
scaled back/reduced.
For 2007/08 the floor increase was set at 2.7% by the government.
Southwark received a total of £211.8m in formula grant in 2007/8, which is broken down across the new
blocks as follows:

Spending Plans and Council Tax
Budget Book 2007/08
RSG together with redistributed national non-domestic rates and special and specific grants are classed as
external finance, which can be defined as financial support provided by central government for revenue
expenditure on services that impact on the council tax.
Specific grants can be defined as all government grants including special grants paid to local authorities
other than revenue support grant, capital grants and HRA subsidy.
Special and specific grants are budgeted for and reflected by departments in their net cost of services.
The level of formula grant or external financing excluding special and specific grants is as follows:

Budget strategy
Overarching framework
Our resources are deployed to support local priorities through our policy and resource strategy, the
framework within which our integrated business and budget planning process sits.
The framework ensures that:
l the highest priorities as set out ultimately in the community strategy are funded within a level of
council tax which is affordable in accordance with the Council’s medium term financial strategy
(MTFS);
l the allocation of resources is closely aligned with national and local priorities and other statutory
requirements;
l financial rigour maintained from the point of allocation of resources through to spending,
monitoring and evaluation;
l existing performance levels constantly challenged to achieve continuous improvement.  This
includes regular monitoring of performance indicators alongside revenue, capital, budget and debt
monitors;
l efficiency gains identified and implemented in accordance with the principles of achieving value
for money.
11

Objectives of setting the budget
In addition to the statutory requirement to set a budget (discussed below) the Council has its own
objectives in preparing and setting a budget.
l To set council tax.
l To give financial expression to the Council’s plans for service delivery in the coming year.
l To make a detailed allocation of available financial resources.
l To set a target against which performance may be monitored.
l To provide authority for chief officers to incur expenditure within the framework of financial
regulations, standing orders and the scheme of delegation.
l To meet the requirements of external auditors that proper financial control is being exercised.
Southwark council’s constitution;  Budget and policy framework procedure rules
The main process is as follows;
Budget proposals made to the executive
Scrutiny committees can respond to the executive re budget proposals
Executive recommend a budget to council assembly
Council assembly agrees budget and sets council tax
The areas covered by the procedures and rules include:
l Preparation of the budget
l Setting the annual budget and council tax
l Monitoring and control of the budget

Council tax
In 2007-08 the band D council tax for Southwark services increased by 3.9% to £877.06 compared to
£844.14 in 2006/7. The total council tax paid by Southwark taxpayers is higher (£1,180.94) as the Council
collects money on behalf of the GLA.

Council tax Calculation 2007/08
The council tax base is the measure of the tax raising capability of the authority. The tax base is calculated by
multiplying the number of band D equivalent properties in the authority by the estimated collection rate.
The council tax requirements for Southwark (£877.06) and for the GLA (£303.88), are added together to
give a total requirement for council tax of £1,180.94 for a band D (average) property, an increase of 4.3%
over the 2006-07 figure of £1,132.75.

Budget Book 2007/08
Precepts and levies
The council tax also pays for the services of the Greater London Authority. Money to pay for these services is
raised through an additional fixed charge on top of each taxpayer’s council tax bill. This is termed a precept.
In 2007-08 the Greater London Authority precept is £303.88 for Band D, an increase of 5.29% above the
2006-07 amount of £288.61.
In addition to the GLA precept, Southwark is levied by three other organisations. The total precept amount
and levies are shown in the table below:

Collection Fund
All council tax income is paid into the collection fund before being used to pay for Southwark and GLA
services.  If less council tax is collected than was originally estimated, then the deficit must be made up the
following year, similarly if more council tax is collected the surplus is redistributed back to the Council and
the Greater London Authority.

Children’s Services
Description of service 
The Children’s Services department is responsible for delivering Southwark’s contribution to the vision
agreed with partners through the Children’s Trust (Young Southwark) which is:
We want Southwark to be a place where every child and young person can have high expectations and
the best opportunities.  We will work together with children, young people and their families so that they
can grow up in good health, feeling safe and secure, and realise their full potential in life.

The department assesses the needs of Southwark’s children and young people in the context of the five
Every Child Matters outcomes (be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and
achieve economic well-being) and delivers services to support achievement of these outcomes and the
priorities identified in the Children and Young People’s Plan.
The specific outcomes which the Children’s Services department leads on are:
l Improved literacy and numeracy
l More for children and young people to do
l Less crime against children and young people
l Reduced rates of teenage pregnancy
l Reduced rates of childhood obesity
The following pages describe the specific services delivered by the department.  In addition, the following
service developments are planned for 2007-09 as the activities of the former component departments are
integrated:
l Co-ordinated community networks, extended schools and children’s centres
l Redesigned services for children with disabilities, continuing and complex care needs
l Common tools and processes
l Children, young people and their families participating more actively in service design and delivery
l Raised levels and child protection awareness across the system.

Description of service 
The individual schools budget is made up of the school budget share issued by 31 March 2007 for each of
the 95 maintained nursery, primary, secondary and special schools in Southwark.  Legislation and
regulations govern the level of planned expenditure, which is then distributed to schools based on the
locally agreed schools funding formula.

Explanation of movements
The main movements between 2006/07 and 2007/08 relate to individual school budget shares and the
impact of transfers to academy status, changes in pupils numbers and the application of the funding
formula, in association with the affects of inflation.
A further schools budget publication is planned, which will provide additional information in respect of the
Schools Budget 2007-08.  This is dependant on:
* Finalisation by DfES of dedicated schools grant allocation.
* Receipt of individual school budget plans 2007-08.
Outputs
The school budget shares are delegated to the governing body of each maintained school. The governing
body decides how to allocate this and other funding in order to achieve their objective of pupil attainment.
Pupil attainment at each school is measured and compared annually for each of the four key stages.

Individual Schools Budget Retained
Description of service 
The definition of individual schools budget changed last year in 2006-07. Planned expenditure on schools
budgets not issued by 31 March is required to be treated as part of the centrally retained schools budget. This
budget has been approved by the schools forum and will be fully delegated to schools before 31 March 2008.
In addition, this budget also includes the retained element of the dedicated schools grant to support the
ISB unallocated and other retained activities included within the access and inclusion, Community strategy
and management services budgets. It also includes some schools standards fund grant which has not yet
been allocated to individual schools.

Explanation of movements
For 2007-08, the anticipated income and expenditure in respect of standards fund is shown. There is a
very significant (in excess of £20M) variation in budget between 2006/07 and 2007/08 due to a change in
the way in which standards fund budgets have been loaded across the 2 years. In 2006/07 most of the
standards fund income and expenditure budgets were loaded as in year adjustments (one-offs) whereas in
2007/08 these budgets have been loaded on the basis of estimates at the start of the year (base budget).
As a result of these different approaches only a small proportion of total standards budget is shown for
2006/07 whereas in contrast, the whole budget is presented for 2007/8, resulting in the large variance
shown above.
Outputs
This budget provides for the dedicated schools grant contribution to the broadband connectivity grant,
which is passed on to schools to facilitate their connection to the London grid for learning. It also provides
for the Council funded contribution to the central co-ordination of the primary and secondary strategies to
support improved attainment.

Explanation of Movements 
The main movements between 2006/07 and 2007/08 are due to the transfer of expenditure budgets
related to the standards fund grant, transfers resulting from revisions to management arrangements and
the effects of inflation. The most significant individual movement relates to expenditure on grants and
subscriptions. This is largely due to preparing the 2007/08 budget using a different methodology than that
applied in 2006/07. Further work is required in this area, which, when completed will be published
together with more detailed service budget information later on in the year.

Explanation of movements
The main movements between 2006/07 and 2007/08 are:
An increase in the employee budgets which is mainly due to additional posts being created which will be
funded through sure start grant, neighbourhood renewal fund and dedicated schools grant. These extra
posts are to provide staff resources for localities development, localities management and regeneration
projects.
An increase in the services budget, which relates to costs of the schools leadership team which is funded
through neighbourhood renewal fund. In addition this budgetary increase is also partly accounted for by
an increase in funding for Southwark schools for the future funded by dedicated schools grant.
An increase in the miscellaneous budget relating to available neighbourhood renewal fund grant, which
has not yet been allocated to specific projects.
An increase in government grants. The majority of this is additional neighbourhood renewal fund and
additional standards fund.
The effects of inflation.
Outputs
Prepare and agree plans for up to 9 new children’s centres.
Open 12 children’s centres in phase one of the programme and have all 12 designated by the DfES.
The development of sustainable business plans for all children’s centres.
Develop and agree the strategic plans for extended schools.
Train all schools on the transformation to extended school status.
Prepare and implement a model for locality based commissioning and service planning, which will service
the 8 community networks within four localities.
Produce the strategic and outline business case’s for Southwark schools for the future. Gain approval for
this from the Secretary of State. Prepare for procurement of a local education partnership or alternative
vehicle.

Education
Budget Book 2007/08
Dedicated School Grant
Description of service
The dedicated schools grant introduced in 2006/7 is a specific ring-fenced grant paid to authorities to fund
schools.
The grant is based on the number of pupils attending school as determined by the pupil led annual school
census or PLASC multiplied by a pre determined fixed amount per pupil, which for 2007/8 is £5,525.05,
previously £5,169.89 in 2006/7.
Each year the council is required to submit a budget statement to the Department for Education and Skills
to covering both the schools and LEA budget.
The DfES require that this statement be submitted by 31 March of the preceding financial year. The
statement is still only an estimate of the authorities expenditure on schools as the funding is based on the
estimated dedicated schools grant. Although the PLASC takes place in January, the DfES will not confirm
an authority’s final pupil count until May and therefore the actual level of grant that will be paid.
Generally however it is expected that an authority’s estimate of pupil numbers based on PLASC returns will
not vary considerably from the number confirmed by the DfES. Changes are normally limited to
adjustments for pupils who may be registered in more than one authority or school.
The statement is normally referred to as a Section 52 statement and consists of a number of tables.
However the main table listing the budgets for different categories of spend is contained in Table 1 a copy
of which is reproduced below.

Children’s Social Care
Description of service
The objective of the service is to improve the life chances of vulnerable young people by providing
professional social care support channelled through a range of preventative and supportive measures.
The structure of Children’s Social Care has changed with the realignment into the new Children’s Services
Department. The services no longer sits within a standalone service for vulnerable children, but is now part
of an all-encompassing and more joined-up approach to meet the needs of children. The change in the
make up of business units and service areas has had consequences for comparative analysis of budgetary
information between the pre and post realignment structures and periods.

claw back of one off growth provided for projects in last financial year. These are shown in the
individual sheets of the services but also listed below:

Description of service
To deal with Southwark’s growing waste problem the Council has launched the resource programme, an
ambitious project that will enable us to recycle half of our rubbish by 2020 and turn the rest into a
resource. Instead of damaging the environment by rotting away in landfill, our rubbish will be turned into
something that could replace the use of fossil fuels to make energy, or be used instead for raw materials in
landscaping.

specific inflation, which is over and above RPI of £747k. Finally there is £1,825k of savings of which £502k

Explanation of movements
There has been a net upward movement of £865k from prior year. There is a general inflation increase of
£330k, a service related inflation increase of £157k. Increased commitment is due to a loss of income on
the joint commissioning contract. There is also an impact from loss of supporting people funding. A saving
reduction of £50k is expected from increased use of cheaper homecare packages rather than residential
packages.
Outputs
The main outputs are:
Residential and Nursing placements (including block placements)
l 212 clients at an average unit cost of £1,287 per week.
National Assistance/Homecare
l 167 clients at an average cost of £276 per week
l Placements are jointly funded with the PCT and these costs are gross of their income
l The Departmental activity funding requirement is constrained by budget allocations. Hence
committed volume increments are similarly constrained.
There are 18 staffing FTEs.

Housing Revenue Account
Budget Book 2007/08
Housing Revenue Account
Description of service
The Housing Revenue Account (HRA) reflects the statutory requirement under section 74 of the Local
Government and Housing Act 1989 to account separately for local authority housing provision. It is a 
ring-fenced account, containing solely the costs arising from the provision and management of the
Council’s housing stock, offset by tenant rents and service charges, housing subsidy, leaseholder service
charges and other income.
Following a review of housing services, strategic management arrangements have changed, with
responsibility for the housing revenue account services being delivered across a number of departments.
2007/08 Budget: Key Issues
l Reductions in the Council’s dwelling stock, primarily through the ‘Right to Buy’ (RTB) result 
in a loss of rental income, partly offset by increased leaseholder service charge income and
reductions in management and maintenance costs. Total stock loss during 2007/08 is estimated 
at 475 properties, of which 300 are likely to be RTB sales.
l The average rent increase has been capped at 5% in accordance with the Government’s annual
rent guideline increase, for a second consecutive year. This ensures the Council maximises the
amount of housing subsidy received from the Government.
l Void rates have been reviewed and adjusted to reflect anticipated activity in 2007/08, including 
the effects of major regeneration schemes, which have long-lead-in periods, with a view to
minimising the revenue effects.
l Heating account charges have been increased for the period up to 31.3.09 by 46.6% to take
account of energy price increases, primarily the supply of gas for district heating systems.

Regeneration
Description of service
The department delivers a wide variety of activities that affect the physical environment, the economy of
the borough and the lives of most of our residents. Regeneration is responsible for setting the strategies
that govern change, for delivering planning, business support and property services, and for ensuring that
the council’s approach to managing the neighbourhoods in Southwark is well co-ordinated. The
department as a whole is at the forefront of the council’s physical, economic and social regeneration. We
do all this by working closely with developers, businesses, regeneration partnerships and statutory bodies
and, above all, local people.

Elephant & Castle Development
Description of service
The division is in charge of the £1.5bn Elephant and Castle regeneration, which aims to transform a 170-
acre area over a 10-year period. This regeneration project, one of the largest urban schemes in the country,
was initiated in summer 2002 when Southwark Council announced its intention to prepare detailed
planning guidance for the area. The plans outline the demolition of 1,200 council estate homes, the
Elephant and Castle shopping centre and the realignment of the central road system. This will pave the
way for over 5,300 new and replacement homes, 75,000 square metres of retail space, five new open
spaces, two tram routes, a new market square and much improved physical, social and economic
opportunities for residents. The regeneration of Elephant and Castle is due to be complete in 2014.

Regeneration
Budget Book 2007/08
Explanation of movements
The main cause of the movement in the budget is the fall out of £168k funding from the general fund,
which plugged the gap following the cessation of SRB funding. The funding was agreed as a one-off.
Inflation accounts for £12k of the total movement in the budget, (£24k) relates to savings to be achieved
by recharging management overheads to grant funded areas and the balance of £2k is due to the increase
in the central support costs.
Outputs
No of FTEs = 6, 2 of which are to be incorporated into the Aylesbury project and regeneration and
neighbourhood department.
In the mean time, the services will continue to do the following:
l To promote the recently formed Elephant & Castle trust to act as a conduit for community

Capital Programme
Budget Book 2007/08
The Capital Programme
Capital expenditure represents the investment of resources in Southwark’s infrastructure. This expenditure
enhances our existing assets and provides for the acquisition and construction of new assets e.g. land,
buildings, roads, vehicles and equipment. All services of the Council can benefit from having new or
improved assets, and the capital programme covers services such as housing, schools, roads and street
lighting, leisure and community facilities, and social care provision. In addition, capital expenditure includes
the issues of grants and loans to others that are used for the type of expenditure outlined above.
There are major themes underlying the capital programme. These include the regeneration of the
Borough, improvements to the environment, and the safety of the community. These themes have been
developing over the last few years, and will continue to be a high priority for the future. The Government
and other funding bodies recognise the importance of these themes, and this is reflected in our ability to
attract high levels of external funding for these priorities.
Investment in services
The Council continues to invest in the services it provides by improving existing assets and developing new
ones. The Capital Programme for 2006/16 includes a Housing Investment Programme of £781m and other
investment of £339m and is shown by department:

Funding the Capital Programme
There are various forms of funding that are available to support the capital programme which are not
available for revenue budget purposes. The major sources of funds for capital are:
Loans, the council can borrow amounts for which it receives specific approval from the
government. There is also unsupported borrowing under the Prudential Code. The full costs of
unsupported borrowing have to be met from Council Tax or Housing Rents.
l the major repairs allowance which is a housing grant from the government;
Other grants and contributions, such as Lottery funding, planning gain receipts from
developers;
Income from the sale of council assets, although in some cases a proportion of this income
must be set aside to repay loans; and
Contributions from revenue or reserves.

A ten year programme has been established for capital investment which is within the remit of the
medium term financial strategy and accords with local priorities as expressed through Southwark 2016,
the community strategy and the corporate plan. During this period the delivery of the decent homes
standard, housing regeneration and the development of Southwark schools for the future are key
priorities. The major projects include the following:
