Annual Audit FY 2020-2021

Audit by GotCredit

Each year the Council undertakes an audit and publishes the results.

As a local elector, or an interested person, you have certain legal rights in respect of the accounting records of smaller authorities. As an interested person you can inspect accounting records and related documents. If you are a local government elector for the area to which the accounts relate you can also ask questions about the accounts and object to them. You do not have to pay directly for exercising your rights. However, any resulting costs incurred by the smaller authority form part of its running costs. Therefore, indirectly, local residents pay for the cost of you exercising your rights through their council tax.

Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 Sections 25, 26 and 27.
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234)
