The finance department is responsible for the overall monitoring and control of the Authority's finances. This ranges from preparing the Budgets and Council Tax proposals during the year, to the preparation of the Annual Accounts at the end of the financial year. We have to review current legislation to ensure that we disclose all required information. We work closely with all Council departments to make sure that we are getting the best from the Council's funding.
