Local Councils in England must complete an annual return summarising their annual activities at the end of  each financial year. The annual return is made up of 4 sections: Sections 1 and 2 are completed by the Responsible Financial Officer; Section 3 will be completed by the external auditor; Section 4 will be completed by the local council's internal auditor.

Any person interested has the right to inspect the accounts and make copies of the annual return and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts relating to the Accounting Statements.  These documents are to be made available on reasonable notice by application.  

Please find Accounting Statements for the year 2022/2023 in the links below.
