STC Council Failing to Publish Annual Accounts

Residents  have been asking me the reasons why the Swanley Town Council have failed to publish their annual accounts within the statutory time limit.

The Chief Executive informed Councillors of the delay on 8 June stating as the reason the “excessive workload currently being experienced at the Civic Offices.”

There was no discussion on this matter and the item was “noted for information.”

I have written to the Town Clerk on this subject and have been told we must wait up to 4 weeks for a reply to my request.

There are concerns about the capacity of the remaining staff in post to deliver the statutory requirements as well as unanswered questions on expenditure over the year.
