Transparency code disclosures

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which were previously covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under the new audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils, internal drainage boards, charter trustees and port health authorities, with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit. In place of routine audit, these smaller authorities will be subject to new transparency requirements laid out in this Code. This will enable local electors and ratepayers to access relevant information about the authorities’ accounts and governance.

A list of councillor or member responsibilities can be found on the Organisations page on this website. The Council owns no public land or building assets, but manages the Selmes Trust fields (between Lossenham Lane and the River Rother, approx 9 acres in total) on behalf of the Selmes Trust, registered charity no. 262501. The land is used as playing fields, for other recreational purposes, and when possible for sheep grazing. Minutes and agendas of formal meetings can be found above.
