The Accounts for 2016-17 are now completed and approved by Council on  20th June 2017. The audit has been concluded and the accounts have been certified by the External Auditor, MAZARS.   The rights of inspection conferred on local government electors by section 25 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 states these must be available for public access for not less than 5 years from the date the annual return was first published. The council provides the accounts for at least 5 years on the website, as seen below.

If you wish to inspect the return in person, this can be done by attending the Parish Council office at The Pavilion, Broomhall Lane, Sunningdale.  Appointments must be made with the Clerk prior to attendance.

Council maintains reserves having taken the view that we are entering uncertain times when the demands on reserves cannot be fully anticipated. Therefore a prudent level of reserves is maintained in line with the Governance and Accountability in Local Councils guidelines.

As a Parish Council, we make every effort to ensure good governance and the close scrutiny of our financial processes. We aim to take full advantage of any s106 money available to us.

We have updated the Business Plan for the future direction of Council. We continue to make improvements to the pavilion and the equipment necessary for delivering a good service for the Parish. At the same time we will work with the Borough to make other improvements including expanding the Christmas lights.
