Annual Accounts Open or Close
We deal with a huge budget each year. We handle the income we receive from grants, Council Tax, fees and charges and carefully manage the money we spend on delivering services and paying precepts to the parish councils, county council and Police/Fire authorities.
Each year we produce a Statement of Accounts; we hope that it helps to tell the story of how the money you paid became the services you received. It sets out an overview of where the money has been spent and highlights specific issues regarding the Council’s financial position during that year ended 31st March.

Financial Plans Open or Close
We are committed to good financial management and the ongoing review and improvement of our financial processes and services.
As part of the requirements of the CIPFA Treasury Management Code of Practice we are required to produce a Treasury Management Strategy every year which requires approval by full Council prior to the commencement of each financial year.
We have produced an Efficiency Plan which is based upon our established Corporate policy of continuing to deliver priority services to local residents whilst ensuring that the underlying level of expenditure remains in line with the underlying level of resources.
Treasury Management Strategy
The Treasury Management Strategy sets out how the treasury management function will support the capital decisions approved within the Medium Term Financial Plan and the parameters for all borrowing and lending associated with the day to day treasury management of the Council’s cash flow requirements.
