Each year the smaller authority’s Annual Governance
and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor
appointed by Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with
this notice. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is
subject to change as a result of that review.
Any person interested has the right to inspect and
make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit
relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other
documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by
any person interested. For the year ended 31 March 2019, these documents will
be available on reasonable notice by application to:
(b) Ms C
Tilley Clerk & RFO
commencing on (c) Friday 20th June 2019
and ending on (d) Wednesday 31st July 2019
