Publication of the final 2021/22 audited accounts


Please note that Regulation 16(1) of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 requires the Authority to publish a statement:


• that the audit has been concluded
• that the statement of accounts has been published
• of the rights of inspection conferred in local government electors by section 25 of the Act and the address at which, and the hours during which, those rights may be exercised.


As the audit has not yet been concluded, due to the value for money audit opinion not being relayed to the Authority, the Authority cannot yet issue this statement. When the audit opinion is issued, the audited and approved accounts will be published on this page as soon as practicable.
