You have a right to inspect our accounts each year. If you are an elector in the borough you may also ask our external auditor questions about the accounts, or object to the accounts.

 

Inspect the accounts

If you would like to inspect our accounts please make an appointment and we will arrange for you to view them on our premises.

You can also inspect documents that are relevant to the accounts and are not legally protected. You can make copies of the accounts and relevant documents, but you may have to pay a copying charge.

For dates, and information on how to arrange a viewing, please see the official notice above.

Question the auditor

If you are an elector in the borough you can ask the council's external auditor questions about the accounts for the year that they are auditing. The auditor does not have to answer questions about anything that is not relevant to the accounts.

For dates, and information on how to contact the auditor, please see the official notice above.

 

Challenge the accounts

If you are an elector in the borough you can object to the accounts if you think that the council has spent money unlawfully, or if you think that there is something in the accounts that the auditor should formally tell the public in a public interest report.

For information on how to object, please see the official notice above.
