Will you disclose spending and what amount has been borrowed for;
A)     Purchases relating to land and property
B)     money spent on regeneration and building development
For each of the last 10 years and what you anticipate and plan on spending with regard to these subjects for future years.



Information on the Comhairle’s past capital expenditure and borrowing is available in the Comhairle’s annual  published accounts available on the Comhairle's website. Should you require  detail on specific projects  we can supply the detailed capital monitoring working papers for each of the last 10 years. Please advise accordingly.

The Comhairle in common with all other local Authorities operates a loans pool so borrowing is not associated with a particular asset. 

The Comhairle sets its capital programme for 5 years at a time, the current programme covering the years 2013-18.  This was approved by the Policy and Resources Committee in 28 March 2013 and is available on the Comhairle’s web site. The Programme evolves within the broad parameters set to deliver specific projects as these are brought forward.
