Our RFO uploaded the one-page Public Rights notice for this year's inspection of annual accounts on the council website until two weeks after the date of announcement. Even then, it was not easy to find the notice as it did not appear on the home or front page but was hidden among council documents under the heading Finances. The RFO didn't put any AGAR/Public Rights notices on the parish noticeboards for 30 days after her announcement date, and then only pinned up the Public Rghts page because I wrote to ask where it was. I asked why it hadn't been properly published as per the statutory requirements, and the RFO stated that the notice need only appear on the council website, and that the display of this notice on the notice boards is good practice and not mandatory and so this doesn't affect the audit process. Is this true? Surely important financial notices should be published on notice boards first and the website second as they are intended to advertise the fact that interested parties have the right to inspect/copy and comment upon the past year's accounts. What about interested parties who might not own or use computers or have access to the internet? What about their rights? How can they be properly informed that they have a right to inspect last financial year's unaudited accounts unless the notice is properly and openly displayed in hard copy on all parish noticeboards?
