Audit of Accounts 2021/22 – Notice of Public Rights

Our Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2022. This is now published on our website.

The Statement of Accounts is subject to audit and so may change.

From 1 August to 12 September 2022, any person may view our accounting records for the financial year to 31 March 2022.

You can inspect related documents. This includes books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, and receipts. To do this you can make an appointment to visit our offices at Causeway House. You may also make copies of the accounts and documents.

You can submit an application to Mark Jarvis, Financial Services Manager by calling 01376 5572525.

Or you can contact us by using our online form or by writing to the Council.

Our external auditor is Aphrodite Lefevre, Director of BDO LLP, of 55 Baker Street, London, W1U 7EU.

The external auditor will give electors or their representative an opportunity to make objections and question them about the accounts, until completion of the audit. This could be in regards to any matter, in which the auditor could take action. For example, an unlawful item of account, or could make a report in the public interest.

This will be at the request of members of the public and local government electors for any area to which the accounts relate.

An objection cannot happen unless the external auditor has before received written notice of the proposed objection and its grounds.

A copy of this notice must also go to Mark Jarvis, Financial Services Manager.
