Committee details

Audit Committee

Our most important meetings, including Full Council, Cabinet, Scrutiny Boards and Planning Committee meetings are broadcast live on our YouTube channel.

Purpose of committee

The purpose of the Audit Committee is to provide independent assurance of the adequacy of the risk management framework and the associated control environment, independent scrutiny of the Authority's financial and non-financial performance to the extent that it affects the Authority's exposure to risk and weakens the control environment, and to oversee the financial reporting process. The Committee may make recommendations to the Governance Committee or full Council but has no direct decision making power.
