Audit Committee

Purpose of committee

The Committee is responsible for approving the Council’s statement of accounts; considering the Audit Commission’s Annual Audit and Inspection Letter and monitoring the Council’s response to individual issues of concern identified in it.


The Committee also considers the Council’s annual review of the effectiveness of its systems of internal control and assurance over the Council’s corporate governance and risk management arrangements, and engages with the external auditor and external inspection agencies to ensure that there are effective relationships between external and internal audit.


Copies of the agenda are available beforehand from the reception area at the main entrance of the Town Hall in Albert Square. Some additional copies are available at the meeting from the Governance Officer. 


The Council is concerned to ensure that its meetings are as open as possible and confidential business is kept to the strict minimum. When confidential items are involved these are considered at the end of the meeting at which point members of the public are asked to leave.


The Council welcomes the filming, recording, public broadcast and use of social media to report on the Committee’s meetings by members of the public.


Agenda, reports and minutes of all Council committees can be found on the Council’s website
