Al fresco Annual Parish Assembly
Novel measures were adopted to ensure this year's Annual Parish Assembly could go ahead safely on 11 August. Instead of meeting inside the village hall (which remains closed), it was held in the carpark. Socially distanced seating and handgel were provided, with some bringing their own chairs along. A couple of residents were able to join remotely via Zoom, using a laptop and 4G mobile router - another first for the parish! Gazebos were put up in case of rain but in the end were welcomed for their shade on one of the hottest days of 2020.
LWPM Year-End Accounts - Dates Confirmed
The Year-end financial accounts for 2019-20 were internally-audited on 4 April 2020, and will be scheduled for discussion and formal approval at the Annual Parish Meeting on 11 August 2020. The accounts will be made available for public inspection from 12 August 2020 until 22 September 2020.
LWPM Year-End Accounts - Revised Audit and Publication Dates
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have been advised that the dates for auditing and publication of year-end financial accounts has been deferred. Little Wolford Parish Meeting's (LWPM) accounts are normally internally-audited in April each year, and available for public inspection in June for 30 working days. Final regulations are due to be made the week commencing 6 April which will extend the statutory audit deadlines for 2019/20.
It is proposed that:
- The publication date for final, audited, accounts for local councils will move from 30 September to 30 November 2020
- The requirement for the public inspection period to include the first 10 working days of July has been removed. Instead, local councils must commence the public inspection period on or before the first working day of September 2020
Draft accounts must be approved by 31 August 2020 at the latest, or earlier where possible. Authorities must publish the dates of their public inspection period this year.
LWPM will provide an update once the audit and public inspection dates have been confirmed.
