Droitwich Spa Town Council

Review of the Annual Governance & Accountability Return (AGAR) for year end 31/03/2021

Thursday, September 9, 2021

The Audited AGAR for the Financial Year End 2020/2021 has been received as at 7 September 2021 and has been updated to the website. For the second successive year the External Auditors Opinion is fully satisfactory with no findings or recommendations raised.

 The Town Council resolved to join the membership of Worcestershire Calc in October 2019. The recommended Nalc Standing Orders and Financial Regulations were fully adopted by the Town Council on 27 January 2020. These replaced, updated and streamlined the original Standing Orders and Financial Regulations to accord with Calc and Auditor recommendations. Due to Covid 19 disruption the first effective date following adoption was the Council Meeting held on 15 June 2020.

 The Standing Orders and Financial Regulations are subject to a statutory annual; review by the Council, which was last completed at the Resources Committee meeting held on 8 February 2021. In addition conformity is part of the Internal and External Auditor governance processes for the Annual Year End Review.

Any final adjustment of the webpage template for the model Nalc Standing Orders & Financial Regulations specific to Droitwich Spa Town Council arrangements is anticipated to be completed during October 2021.
