Pendle Council gives good value for money

Published: Tuesday, 3rd September 2019

Pendle Council’s accounts have once again been given a clean bill of health by an independent watchdog.

External auditor Grant Thornton looked at how well the Council managed its finances and whether it provided good value for money for residents.

And the Audit Findings report for 2018/19, recently reported to the Accounts and Audit Committee, states that the Council had robust arrangements in place to ensure it continued to deliver value for money.

Susan Guinness, Chief Financial Officer, said: “This is an impartial and objective report on our financial performance and our use of public funds.

“Summing up our accounts the auditor highlighted that we have a good track record of managing our budget and identifying ways we can save money.”

Councillor Mohammed Iqbal, Leader of Pendle Council, added: “It’s good to be officially recognised for managing our money well.

“We’re continually working to be even more efficient as we strive to protect our frontline services in the face of severe funding cuts from government.”
