Total Budget Allocation 1,050,000 499,000 1,431,500

The above budget allocations are estimates that are subject to change or maybe deferred as other priorities and opportunities arise. The total expenditure currently shows a 25% over-budget spend to allow for delays, efficiencies, reprioritising and contingency. This will be monitored throughout the year to ensure the available budget is not exceeded and will defer projects as required.
