Contact our external auditor
Councils exist to serve the public. But, even in the best councils, things can go wrong.
If you want to question or challenge the council's accounts, the council's external auditor may be able to help you.
We were notified on 14 August 2017 by the Public Sector Audit Appointments (PSAA) that it intended to appoint Grant Thornton as our external auditor for the five year period 2018/19 to 2022/23. However, the appointment was subject to a consultation on the proposed appointment, and following the consultation, Grant Thornton was confirmed on 19 December 2017 and reported to Audit and Member Standards Committee on 22 January 2018.
