The result of the Governments wish to hand more power to the public allowing them to hold Parish Councils to account has been to remove councils such as ours with a turnover not exceeding £25,000 from the routine external audit regime from 2017. Instead we are now subject to the requirements of the new Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities.
The new code requires relevant Parish Councils to make available, by publishing, information regarding their accounts and governance, their draft minutes, agendas and information on their own, or via the District Councils, website.
Using the links to the left you can access all the information which is now required to be published online all of which is also available directly from the parish clerk on request as it has always been in the past.
The Period for the Exercise of Public Rights Accounts for the Year Ended 31 March 2018 has now expired however anyone wishing to view the accounts for this period should contact the Clerk to the Council.
