Electors' rights

Each year the smaller authority prepares an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR).  The AGAR has been published with this notice. It will not be reviewed by the appointed auditor, since the smaller authority has certified itself as exempt from the appointed auditor’s review.

Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the AGAR, the accounting records for the financial year to which it relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. For the year ended 31 March 2019, these documents will be available on reasonable notice by application to Mrs Jill Pick, Church Cottage, Wansford, tel 01377 254741, e-mail Sandwplclerk@yahoo.co.uk commencing on Tuesday 25 June 2019 and ending on Monday 5 August 2019
