Statement of accounts

At the end of each financial year, we are required by the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 to publish a Statement of Accounts setting out the financial position of the council and the transactions that have been made during the year.

You have the right to inspect these accounts, and the associated documents, in accordance with the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014.

How do I inspect the unaudited draft accounts for 2015/16?

The unaudited statement of accounts 2015/2016 was made available for public inspection, along with the supporting accounting records and associated documents, from 1st July 2016 - 11th August 2016.

During this period, local electors were able to ask the external auditors questions about the draft accounts, or raise objections to them. Download the notice of public rights for more information.

What happens next? 

The accounts for 2015/16 have now been audited and approved by the council’s Audit and Governance Committee. You can now download the final audited accounts below, along with the audit opinion.
