Public Interest Reports

The appointed external auditor, under the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014, has a duty to consider whether to issue a report in the
public interest when a significant matter comes to their attention which they believe the Council should consider or the public should know about. A public interest report is issued under Schedule 7 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014. The Act requires the Council to consider a public interest report at a public meeting within one month of the date of the report.

The auditor has a duty to send a copy of each report to the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and the power to send a copy to other appropriate persons such as the local Monitoring Officer.

Reports relating to previous financial years are available on the archived Public Sector Audit Appointments website.
