The accounts and related documents are available for public inspection from Thursday 30 June to Thursday 21 July 2022 (inclusive).  The accounts will be available to view electronically on the council’s website.

Due to the ongoing commitment to control the incidence and minimise the transmission of the Coronavirus, inspection will not take place on a face-to-face basis but instead any person interested may inspect a copy of the abstract(s) of the accounts to be audited, all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts related thereto, in so far as it is possible to provide them electronically.

Any person interested may object to the account or to any part of those accounts, no later than Friday 22 July 2022 by sending their objection in writing, together with a statement of the grounds thereof, to the auditor, Fiona Mitchell-Knight, Assistant Director of Audit Services (for South Lanarkshire Council) and Andrew Kerr, Senior Audit Manager (for Related Charitable Trusts). Any objections should be sent via email to the following email addresses: fmitchell-knight@audit-scotland.gov-uk and akerr@audit-scotland.gov.uk and by letter to any officer of the council who may be concerned, at Council Offices, Almada Street, Hamilton ML3 0AB.

The auditor shall, if requested by the person objecting, the authority, or by any officer of the authority who may be concerned, afford to that person or authority or officer, as the case may be, an opportunity of appearing before and being heard by the auditor with respect to that objection; and any such person or officer may so appear and be heard either personally or by a representative.
