In order to provide transparency in all that the Council does, there are a number of statutory  requirements that must be met.  Part of this is the Annual Audit of Accounts (Annual Governance and Accountability Return, referred to as the AGAR).  The Council is required to declare their finances at the end of each Financial Year, and that the business has been conducted properly throughout the past year.  Records for the recent past are shown below:
Annual Return for Period 2020-2021 Parts 1 to 3
Notice of Conclusion of Audit (signed Sep 21)
Notification of Period of Exercise of Public Rights for 20-21

Annual return for period 2019-2020
Annual Return for period 2018-2019
