They should be read in conjunction with the Treasury Management Code of Practice and the Prudential Code for Capital Finance.
This guidance provides practitioners with a practical interpretation of the Prudential Code. It will enable them to meet its key principles of ensuring that capital programmes are affordable, prudent and sustainable and explain this effectively to those charged with governance.
