Statement of accounts

The statement of accounts show and explain the council's financial position for a given year, bringing together expenditure and income on all of its services. They also include statements on the pension fund and other trust fund accounts.

The accounts for 2015/16, which are subject to audit, will be available for inspection from 1 July 2016 until 12 August 2016.
