St Harmon Community Council – Inadequacies in Governance, Financial Management and Internal Control Arrangements
12 October 2021

This report in the public interest has been prepared in accordance with Section 22 of the Public Audit (Wales) Act 2004

Our report has identified significant failures in decision making, inadequacies in financial management and internal control and a breakdown in relations within the Council.

These failures mean the Council did not have proper arrangements in place to secure economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources.

There are lessons to be learnt not just by this Council, but by all community councils in Wales.
