Over one year ago, all members of my parish council were deemed as disqualified by the principal authority. The clerk resigned from their post over one year ago. The principal authority said it would reconstitute the parish council but to date the parish council remains unconstituted. The parish council have not published any AGAR for the past 3 financial years and as a result, I expect a further public interest report from the external auditor will be forthcoming along with their fee. In the spring of 2023, the principal authority will once again estimate the precept for the parish, collect it and pay into a bank account in the parish council's name. The principal authority have confirmed that it does not know who controls the bank account. Without a quorate parish council and a clerk, how can the principal authority allow this to continue?
Any advice would be most appreciated.
