Aust Parish Council Documents



The Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities (Department for Communities and Local Government, Dec. 2014) requires Parish Councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 to meet new transparency requirements and to do this with effect from 1 July 2015. 

According to the Code, such Parish Councils should publish:

  •     minutes, agendas and meeting papers of formal meetings
  •     end of year accounts
  •     internal audit reports
  •     annual governance statements
  •     all items of expenditure above £100
  •     the details of public land and building assets
  •     list of councillor responsibilities


On this page, we provide links to documents which meet these requirements. 



AGENDAS, PAPERS and MINUTES: documents relating to Aust Parish Council meetings

Here you can find the agendas, any formal meeting papers and the minutes for each of our Council meetings.  On this page, we provide links to the minutes of the last 12 meetings.  Earlier minutes are available from the clerk.  We will also publish here the agenda for each future meeting, at least 3 days before the date of the meeting, and the draft minutes of the most recent meeting which have not yet been approved.

Here are the annual accounts of Aust Parish Council for each of the last three years, in date order with the most recent accounts first. 

These sets of accounts itemise all items of expenditure. This exceeds the government's requirement that we should report all items of expenditure over £100.

The annual accounts for 2018-19 and a Notice of Public Rights which relates to them

The annual accounts for 2017-18

The annual accounts for 2016-17  





A copy of our most recent annual return is to be found here.   It includes the annual governance statement and the internal audit report.  Individual Councillors do not have specific responsibilities.  Here, you can see a notice to electors, explaining how to access the accounts.





The only land or buildings owned by Aust Parish Council is the Woodwell nature reserve at Littleton-upon-Severn.  It is managed by South Gloucestershire Council.
