Statement of Accounts 23-24

Our Statement of Accounts shows the annual details of our finances and performance, which is prepared in accordance with the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting.

The Annual Review and Statement of Accounts for 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 are currently in draft status because the External Auditors have been unable to undertake their audit for either year due to resource issues within their audit teams.  At this stage we do not have a date for the completion of any of the audits.

Under The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 we are required to publish our draft Statement of Accounts, Narrative Report and Annual Governance Statement for the year ended 31 March 2024, and to commence the 30 working day period for the exercise of public rights, by 31 May 2024.

Where we are unable to meet this deadline we are required to confirm this in a public notice which sets out our reasons. This statement fulfils that requirement, as specified in section 15 (1A) of The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015.

We have been unable to publish our Statement of Accounts, Narrative Report and Annual Governance Statement for the year ended 31 March 2024 by 31 May 2024 due to delays in receiving information from third parties. We will publish these documents as soon as they have been approved by the authority and signed on its behalf, and then issue a notice commencing the period for the exercise of public rights.
