2022 to 2023 accounts

Paragraph 16(1) of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 requires the Council to publish a statement:

  • that the audit has been concluded
  • that the statement of accounts has been published
  • of the rights of inspection conferred in local government electors by section 25 of the Act and the address at which, and the hours during which, those rights may be exercised.

As the audit work necessary on Whole of Government Accounts for year ended 31 March 2022 and 31 March 2023 is still to be undertaken, we are unable to formally confirm that the audit has been completed.
