2023 – 2024

Cholmondeley & Chorley Parish Council

Transparency Code for Local Councils

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 set out a new audit framework for local public authorities. Under the new audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit, but in place of the routine audit, these smaller authorities will be subject to the new transparency requirements laid out in this Code. This will enable local electors and ratepayers to access relevant information about the authorities’ accounts and governance.

One of the requirements is the publication of the Council’s spend on any item in excess of £100.

This statement lists the Parish Council’s spend during the financial year 2023-2024.
