Annual Governance Statement

The Annual Governance Statement is a statutory document, which explains the processes and procedures in place to enable the council to carry out its functions effectively.

The statement is produced following a review of the council's governance arrangements and includes an action plan to address any significant governance issues identified.

Until 2009/10 we were required to include the Annual Governance Statement with the statement of accounts and it was therefore published as part of that document. From 2010/11 the Annual Governance Statement does not have to be included within the statement of accounts.
