Statement of Accounts

An audited account of our finances and control arrangements for the year

The Council’s unaudited draft accounts are currently presented on our website for year ended 31 March 2018.

There have been a number of complex accounting and auditing issues during the audit that reflect the Council’s projects, including joint ventures, acquisitions and lease re-financing.  We have been working through these issues with the external auditor, and this has taken longer than we anticipated.  When set against the earlier closedown deadline this means that the audit will not be completed by the 31 July deadline.  Audited accounts will be uploaded to the website when completed.


The accounting statements that follow show the Council's financial performance. The style of presentation of the statement is determined by the Code of Practice on Local Authority Accounting 2016-17 that the Council is legally required to follow.
