The annual inspection gives members of the public and local government electors certain rights in the audit process.
Any person may inspect the accounts of the council for the year ended 31 March 2015 and certain related documents (comprising books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts) at West Offices. They may also make copies of the accounts and documents.
The council’s accounts are subject to external audit by Mazars LLP.
Following this period of public inspection residents can, from 24 August, question the auditor about, or make objections to, the accounts before they are signed off by Audit & Governance Committee on the 23 September 2015.
