Annual Governance & Accounts Return

Every year the Parish Council prepares a report on its Governance & Accounts in an Annual Return (AGAR) to be submitted for External Audit.

Voters in the Parish have the right to view the Annual Return for 2023-2024 as explained by clicking here. The Annual Governance Statement Section 1 and the Accounting Statement Section 2 were approved at full Council on 07/05/24 and can be found below. 

The Notice of Conclusion of Internal Audit 2023-2024 can be found below. The Audit was completed following rigorous inspection by an Independent Internal Auditor and the Internal Auditor's Report 2023-2024 can be found below.

The Annual Return (April 2023 - March 2024) has been sent to the External Auditors.

As part of the audit process, the Responsible Financial Officer is also required to produce a list of Variances to explain the differences in receipts and payments from the previous year and a copy of this document can be found below.



Parish Councils are required to discharge their duties and powers within the law and according to their governance policies on the conduct of meetings and financial matters.  These policies are reviewed annually and updated when appropriate.
