Annual Governance Statement 2020 pdf icon PDF 42 KB

Additional documents:


The Democratic Services Manager presented the final draft of the Annual Governance Statement and confirmed that she had applied the changes recommended by Audit Wales.


A couple of minor amendments were agreed in relation to the impact of the phosphates issue and to clarify the fact that the criticism of the Change Programme was in relation to its implementation rather than the principle.


A member reiterated the point that the size of the organisation did not justify the effort in producing the Annual Governance Statement.  She also posed some questions for members about their contribution to the organisation, and it was noted that these should be revisited when the Personal Development Reviews were carried out in the New Year.


RESOLVED:  That the Annual Governance Statement for 2020-21 be approved for publication with the Annual Statement of Accounts.
