Audit Committee

The Audit Committee is led by the Chief Finance Officer (Section 151 Officer)

The Audit Committee is a dedicated group of Councillors looking critically at our financial and risk management arrangements. They report directly to the full Council and are supported by the Council's Corporate Finance Officers and independent internal and external auditors. They aim to give taxpayers and other Councillors assurance through scrutinising financial management and provide challenge across the Council. The principal aim is to increase public confidence on the stewardship of public funds, encourage value for money and to ensure we have effective controls to safeguard our resources.

Agendas, agenda items and minutes can be found at the bottom of this page. If you require documents from meetings dating back further please contact Committee Services Team, who will be able to supply you with more information by using the contact form under Useful Forms below.

In accordance with Section 14.6.3 of the Council's Constitution the Council will make available for public inspection all records for six years after the date of the decision, together with copies of all reports considered in relation to such decisions.

After six years the Council will still make available its approved minutes.
