Parish Council Transparency Information

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 set out an audit framework for local public authorities which were previously covered by the Audit Commission regime.

Under this new framework, Parish Councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 may claim exemption from routine external audit. Such Parish Councils are required to publish key information to the public under the Transparency Code.

Listed below are those Transparency items published by Little Chart Parish Council (LCPC).  Please also see our Policies and Procedures.

In Financial Year (FY) 2020/21 LCPC’s yearly turnover slightly exceeded the £25,000 limit, due to a contribution to a Highways Safety Improvement Scheme. The documents below reflect the need this year to submit the relevant documents to a limited assurance external audit, rather than claim exemption.

Queries on the documents below or about the statutory accounting system generally may be made to the Responsible Financial Officer at any time. Please use the Contact Form on this website.
