1.    Councillor Allowances


Name: Mr N Furness


Why were the financial accounts for councillor allowances and expenses for the financial year ending April 2022 delayed for 5 months before being uploaded to the Council’s website? I remind him that the Local Authorities Regulations states a Council must publish the information “as soon as reasonably practicable after the end of a year to which the scheme relates."
