Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015, Regulation 15(2) b and
Accounts and Audit (Amendment) Regulations 2021
The Council’s accounts are subject to external audit by Mazars LLP, 5th Floor Wellington Place, Leeds, LS1 4AP. Tel: 0113 3945316. Members of the public and local government electors have certain rights in the audit process:
Notice of rights in relation to the statement of accounts of Craven District Council for the financial year ended 31 March 2021
Rights to inspect the statement of accounts and accounting records
Sections 25 and 26 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 (‘the Act’) provide local government electors and journalists with the right to inspect and make copies of the statement of accounts, accounting records and all documents relating to those records, for the financial year ended 31 March 2021.
At present, the Council has not been able to publish its draft accounts and commence the period for the exercise of public rights. This is due to other work pressures, including the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the extended absence of key members of staff.
The period of public inspection will commence in due course for the statutory 30-day period. Notice will be given when the accounts have been published.
