Each year Staplegrove Parish Council prepares an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR). The right for the public to view the AGAR and associated documents is given in this notice. All the documents relating to the AGAR that have to be published can be found in the Finance or Policy and Audit pages on this website.
These documents are published as a requirement of the Annual Governance and Accountability Return for 2020/21. Staplegrove Parish Council is a smaller authority with a gross income or gross expenditure of £25.000 or less and therefore has certified itself as exempt from a limited assurance review. The accounts have been subject to an internal audit by an independent auditor.
