Minutes:

At its meeting on 3 June 2015, the Board considered the draft Annual Governance Statement for 2014/15. It was reported that changes had subsequently been made to the document and the report enabled Members to further review and approve the updated Annual Governance Statement (AGS) for 2014/15.

 

It was reported that under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 the Council had to produce an Annual Governance Statement, in a format recommended by CIPFA/SOLACE, to accompany the Statement of Accounts.

 

Appended to the report for information was the updated 2014/15 draft AGS and a Development Plan that set out the actions agreed to further develop the Council’s governance framework.

1)    the updated Annual Governance Statement (AGS) for 2014/15 which accurately reflects the corporate governance arrangements in place at the Council be approved;

 

2)    the proposed action plan be endorsed; and
