Statement of accounts 2021-22 and subsequent years

Delays in the completion of the audit of previous years’ accounts, most notably in relation to 2019-20, has had implications for the following years. The Council has published its 2020-21 draft accounts, see above, and is currently preparing the accounts for 2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24. Once completed, these accounts will also be published in draft form and will then be available for public inspection and be subject to audit.
