Annual Statement of Accounts
Each year the District Council is required to produce a Statement of Accounts.
This document sets out a summary of our financial affairs and provides a commentary on our performance. Making sure we are accountable for our work is extremely important and our financial statements help to show how your money has been used. The Statement of Accounts is available to read by everyone; use the links to download a copy in PDF format. A hard copy of the signed accounts can be viewed at the main Mendip District Council Offices.
