To consider the draft annual governance statement 2012/13. 


RECOMMENDED: To approve the draft annual governance statement 2012/13. 


The committee considered the draft annual governance statement for 2012/13.  This statement would accompany the statement of accounts and was open to the committee and the council’s external auditors to suggest any improvements before the committee adopted the statement at its meeting in September. 


The committee suggested that the officers: 

  • reviewed paragraph 75 to better explain the council’s budget-making process in 2012/13
  • made reference in paragraph 115 to the committee’s role in dealing with code of conduct complaints against district, town and parish councillors


The chairman asked committee members to submit any suggested amendments to Democratic Services before the next committee meeting. 


RESOLVED: to amend the draft annual governance statement 2012/13 as set out above and consider any further suggestions from committee members before the next committee meeting.
