Council Accounts

We are approaching that time of year when the public have unlimited rights to examine the councils accounts for the previous twelve months. The exact dates that a twenty working day period starts is unknown, it is dependent upon when the accounts are ready.

If there are any lingering questions about what the council has spent, and with whom, etc, in the last twelve months then now is the time to prepare to go looking

A guide as to the rights we have in this matter may be found through a link at http://www.audit-commission.gov.uk/about-us/contact-us/querying-council-accounts/council-accounts-a-guide-to-your-rights/ The rights under this act are considerable- NO COMMERCIAL CONFIDENTIALITY applies and the limited opportunity should not be missed.
