Annual Governance Statements

It is a requirement of the Accounts and Audit Regulations that all local authorities must produce an Annual Governance Statement. The purpose of an Annual Governance Statement is to clearly set out the processes and procedures which ensure that:

  • We are efficiently and effectively run;
  • Our activities are transparent; and
  • We are accountable to our residents.

Set out below are our Annual Governance Statements for the last three years:
