The revenue and capital funds made available under the Waste Performance and Efficiency Grant (WPEG) represent an aggregate allocation for Kent county council and all the district councils in the Kent area. WPEG is linked to local area agreements in 2007-08 and allocations for all county and district councils are therefore paid as an aggregate sum for collective investment.

(c) No funds have been made available in the form of supported borrowing.
