Parish councils are elected bodies that serve around 15 million people in England and spend about £500 million a year. Now, public spending watchdog the Audit Commission puts the spotlight on the timeliness and quality of their financial reporting.
Audited accounts are the main way public bodies show accountability for managing public money. Parish councils must publish their accounts within six months of the end of the financial year. They do this in the form of an annual return.
As required by the statutory Audit Regulations, Sulgrave Parish Council has published the above notice to the effect that the audit for the year ending 31st March 2012 was completed on 17th August 2012.
Local electors may examine the audited accounts between 9.30 am and 2.30 pm on working days, by appointment with the Clerk to the Council, Christine Coles, telephone: 01295 276229.
