1. Date of announcement 31st May 2022


2. Each year the smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with this notice. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.


Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit 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 2021, these documents will be available on reasonable notice by application to:

Paul Nolan | Parish Clerk | carringtonparishcouncil@gmail.com

This information will also be freely available on the Finance section of the Parish council website in the 2021-22 Accounts section

commencing on (c) Monday 13 June 2022 and ending on (d) Friday 22 July 2022


3. Local government electors and their representatives also have:

  • The opportunity to question the appointed auditor about the accounting records; and

  • The right to make an objection which concerns a matter in respect of which the appointed auditor could either make a public interest report or apply to the court for a declaration that an item of account is unlawful. Written notice of an objection must first be given to the auditor and a copy sent to the smaller authority.

The appointed auditor can be contacted at the address in paragraph 4 below for this purpose between the above dates only.

4. The smaller authority’s AGAR is subject to review by the appointed auditor under the provisions of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 and the NAO’s Code of Audit Practice 2015. The appointed auditor is:

We can only spend public funds as described in The Local Government Act

The Local Government Act 1972 s137 states:

"A local authority (Carrington parish council) may incur expenditure which in their opinion is in the interest of, and will bring direct benefit to their area or any part of it or all or some of its inhabitants…”

So, in simple terms: our primary objectives are to serve the community, and improve living and working environments for all within the parish council boundaries. Always consulting the community with any big ideas or plans.
