Pirbright Parish Council

PPC Governance

Every year the Parish Council prepares a report on its governance & accounts in an Annual Return to be submitted for External Audit.  

Voters in the parish have the right to view the Annual Return for 2018-19 as shown by clicking here: notice and the conclusion of audit notice

This was completed following rigorous inspection and report by an Independent Internal Auditor. The Annual Return with Governance and Accounting statements was approved by the Parish Council at its recent Meeting, held on 4 June 2019. 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.

The External Auditor has now completed the mandatory inspection of the Annual Return and other required documents.  To view the report and certificate click here


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.  We are currently expecting an updated model Code of Conduct to replae the version shown here.
