Each year the Parish Council is required to make certain governance and financial returns to the External Auditor and post this information to the Council website as required by the Transparency Code.
On the advice of the Internal Auditor the Council have requested the External Auditor to undertake a limited assurance review on the 2019/20 returns. The notice of Public Rights and Publication of Unaudited Annual Governance & Accountability Return with supporting documents is included below.
Here are the returns made by the Council:
In April 2020 the Council joined the Small Councils Audit Network and commissioned a comprehensive internal audit for the 2019/20 year. The report of the internal auditor may be found here.
The Council have considered the report of the auditor and have drafted a comprehensive response and action plan which was approved at the August meeting of the Council. A copy of the Council's detailed response and action plan may be viewed here. The Council has considered progress reports against the action plan at each meeting thereafter.
