To the information officer,

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
