The Chairman of the Audit & Governance Committee, Cllr P Bolton, presented a report requesting approval of the Council’s Anti-Fraud & Corruption Strategy.


Cllr P Bolton reported that the strategy remained largely unchanged, but the policy was now aligned with the UK Government’s Economic Crime Plan 2023/26. The Audit & Governance Committee reviewed the revised Anti-Fraud & Corruption Strategy at its meeting on 15 February 2024 and the Strategy is recommended to the Council for approval.


The Finance & Economic Development Portfolio Holder, Cllr J Philip, added that the key fraud risks detailed in the Strategy were particularly relevant to the Council and not just generic local authority risks, and also encouraged Members to attend meetings of the Audit & Governance Committee to be better informed of the risks faced by the Council.
