Hailsham Town Council’s Annual Accounts for the year ending 31st March 2024 will be available for members of the public to view at the Town Council Offices.

The documents report the financial position of the Council at the end of the year and all income and expenditure transactions throughout the annual period.

Any person interested will have the opportunity to inspect and make copies of the documents, including the unaudited Annual Return and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts.

These documents are available on reasonable notice to view at the Town Council Offices in Market Street on application to Mrs M. Webber, Inglenook, Market Street, Hailsham, BN27 2AE (or by email: between the hours of 9.30am and 3pm on weekdays from Monday 3rd June until Friday 12th July 2024.

From Friday 5th July to Friday 12th July, the accounts will be available to view at the former Free Church building in Western Road (due to the temporary relocation of the Town Council Offices).

“All local authorities are required by law to produce an annual accounts document at the end of the financial year, which is made available to members of the public to view,” said Responsible Finance Officer Michelle Webber. “These accounts, which have been presented in an easy-to-understand, user-friendly format, demonstrate to tax-payers effective stewardship for public money, whilst allowing them to hold us to account by seeing where their money goes.”

“Open local government is essential for good democracy and that’s why councils make their income and expenditure details available to the public – everyone has a right to know how their taxes are spent.”

The Town Council’s latest quarterly Net Expenditure and Fund Summaries, which report all financial transactions throughout the past year in more detail, are available to download from the Town Council’s website:
