We are experiencing technical difficulties with our Council and committee pages.
We are working to resolve this urgently. Thank you for your patience.
Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014.
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.
As per Regulation 15 (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/234) as amended by the Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (SI 2021/263), this notification explains that the Councils are unable to publish the (unaudited) draft statement of accounts for the year ending 31 March 2023 in line with the publication date of 31 May 2023, primarily as a result of resourcing issues and an earlier publication date than recent years.
In accordance with Regulation 15 (2b), the Council is consequently unable to set the period for the exercise of public rights. Council officers are endeavouring to ensure that the draft statement of accounts for 2022/2023 are completed as soon as possible. The Councils will publish the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2023 and a notice detailing the public inspection period as soon as possible.Melissa Evans Director – Corporate Resources and Section 151 Officer
