In addition to direct expenditure, the share of administration costs allocated to the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Portfolio is £5m. This gives a total net expenditure of £208m.
Explanation of Major Variances greater than £3m:
Note 1 Variance due to lower than anticipated staff and
administration costs, grant funding for the Coastal Communities
Fund and depreciation of the Ellis Building.
Note 2 £6m as a result of lower than anticipated grant awards from demand-led Scottish Land Fund. Further £4m following the revised timetable for uptake of Zero Waste grants and projects. Additional £2m through lower than anticipated Scottish Environmental Protection Agency working capital requirement with £3m in other minor variances.
Note 3 Voted Loans to Scottish Water are budgeted for on a net expenditure basis so that advances of £343m are shown net of repayments of £304m.
Remaining £1m consists of other minor variances across a number of programmes within the portfolio.
