Council Finances

Darley Dale Town Council, as a public body, is responsible for its own finances.

It is required to make arrangements for the proper administration of its financial affairs, which is the responsibility of an officer.

The officer whose job it is to oversee the finances of the council is referred to as the Responsible Financial Officer (RFO).

Darley Dale Town Council has combined the role of RFO with that of the Town Clerk.

The Town Council works within a legal framework that is specified within the Accounts and Audit Regulations.

It must ensure that its business is conducted transparently and in accordance with the law and proper standards.

We take our responsibility seriously for ensuring that public money is safeguarded, accounted for and efficiently allocated.

Each year we are subject to an internal and external audit of our procedures and financial management.
