COUNCIL BUDGET 

The Council sets its budget each year in January. This in turn sets the precept – the amount the Council will raise from the Council Tax payer – for the forthcoming financial year. Our last three budgets can be downloaded using the links below: 
 

AUDIT AND ANNUAL RETURN 

The Council engages an internal auditor to assess its financial probity and governance arrangements during the year, and the auditors findings are reported to the Finance & General Purposes Committee. 
 
Our accounts and governance are also independently audited by an external auditor, based on an annual return submitted by the Council. The last three years’ annual returns can be downloaded below:
