Finance & Transparency

The Parish’s financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March.

The accounts are prepared by the Responsible Financial Officer (the Clerk) and are then subject to internal audit. Our current Internal Auditor is Mr John Plumb. The Annual Return and accounts are then subject to approval by the Parish Council, before being submitted to the External Auditor, Grant Thornton UK LLP.

The Parish Council is required to advertise the audit and display a notice of conclusion of audit. These notices are displayed here and on the Parish Council Noticeboard.

If you would like to know more about the Council’s accounts and your rights, more information is available here on the National Audit Office’s website, Local Authority Accounts: a guide to your rights and the Parish Council’s Financial Regulations are available to view here LW&GC PC Financial Regulations.
