Audits

The annual audit process is a formal external assessment of the Council's spending for each financial year, along with internal control and management of its business, with the most recent being year ended 31st March 2019.

It is a two step process with the first step being the Internal Audit which is performed by Northants CALC and takes place annually between March and June. The second and final step is via the External Audit, which is performed by PKF Littlejohn and takes place annually between June and September. The conclusion of audit is then published on the Parish Council website from September onwards.

The audit process for year ended 31st March 2019 began in April and has now concluded. All documentation pertaining to this is below for your review and download should you wish.

CIL Guidance & Policy

Amendments have been made to the 2010 Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) Regulation that require the District Council to pass a proportion of CIL receipts collected from developments in their areas, directly to parish and town councils to be spent on infrastructure or anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that development places on an area.

The District Council will pass accumulated funds to the parish every 6 months, and the parish council will be required to report on receipts and expenditure each year.

The charging authorities (the District Council) have to pass on a proportion of CIL receipts to parish and town councils from developments that take place in their area. The District Council is required to pass 15% of CIL receipts to relevant Parish and Town Councils arising from developments in their areas. This rises to 25% in areas with an adopted Neighbourhood Development Plan.

Please see the attached policy which reflects the approved CIL Policy for West Haddon Parish Council.
