Statement of accounts

Each year we produce a statement of our accounts that we publish online before 30 September. External auditors look at the accounts before we publish them and you can question them about their findings.

We also have to review the effectiveness of our governance framework each year, an exercise that involves teams across the council.

Councillor allowances

Each year the amount of allowances awarded to each councillor is made public. 

The councillor allowances scheme is reviewed at least every 4 years to comply with legislation. The next review is due in 2019.
