BBC.co.uk’s baseline budget has risen by half a million pounds, from £133.8 million per year to £134.3 million per year, reflecting a housekeeping change in the way the BBC pays for its property.
Some services have seen budget reductions after finding savings, but BBC Online is amongst the services that are seeing a total £23 million budget reallocation due to a “planned and foreseen rise in property costs” because, the trust says, the BBC is switching its properties from a freehold to a rent-based, leasehold arrangement.
This doesn’t change anything in the bigger picture. Erik Huggers will still have to make the previously announced 25 percent cut to BBC Online’s budget by 2013.
