Annual Accounts – Notice of Public Rights

Each year the Great Oxendon Parish Council prepares an Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR).  The AGAR has now been published and can be viewed on-line here.

It will not be reviewed by the appointed auditor, since the Parish Council has certified itself as exempt from the appointed auditor’s review.

Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the AGAR, the accounting records for the financial year to which it relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested. For the year ended 31 March 2019, these documents will be available on reasonable notice by application to the Parish Clerk.

The Notice of Public Rights can be viewed here. This can also be viewed on the village noticeboard.

You can view all of our financial documents for 18/19 by clicking here.

The period of inspection commences on Monday 17 June 2019 and ends on Friday 26 July 2019.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

The Parish Council is all prepared for the new General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”). It has adopted and updated its relevant policies & procedures and also appointed a Data Protection Officer. Although similar to previous legislation the GDPR does impose new burdens on the Parish Council, including new reporting requirements and the potential for increased fines and penalties.

Residents can be assured that any data held by the Parish Council will be processed lawfully and the data would only be used for the purpose which it was provided for. We do not share your data and we do not store it any longer than necessary. Any data we do hold will be secure and this will be maintained on an ongoing basis to keep our records both accurate and relevant.
