Reporting and Governance 2018-19

Updated: 3rd June 2019

As a publicly accountable body, the governance and financial management of the Parish Council are subject to clearly defined rules. The Parish Council is also the custodian of information that is publicly available. We have therefore prepared the attached Guide to Information for anyone who may want to access that information.

The Council's financial year ends on the 31st March each year, this year we have submitted the Certificate of Exemption. The Annual Governance and Accountability Return also includes the Section 1 - Annual Governance Statement, the Section 2 - Accounting Statements, Annual Internal Audit Report and the Certificate of Exemption and can all be viewed by clicking on the link. The Notice of Public Rights and Publication can be viewed here.

You may also view the Parish Council's Bank Reconciliation and Reserves for the last financial year, including explanation of variances, the latest Assets Register and the latest Risk Assessment.
