In June 2010 the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government wrote to local authorities committing us to publishing items of spending over £500 by January 2011. The data we've published under 'Local Spending data' excludes:

  • all payments to individuals paid through payroll
  • payments to HM Revenue and Customs relating to Vat and payroll
  • all pension-related payments

We have included invoice and grant payments to individuals but have replaced personal data with the words 'Redacted personal data'.

Local Spending data


  • The data published relates to payments made by the Lake District National Park Authority
  • The Authority uses an accounting system called SunSystems
  • The date used to identify payments is the date that the transaction was authorised for payment
  • The purchase categorisation used is from BVACOP  - Best Value Accounting Code of Practice

Statement of Accounts 2019/20

Audit of Accounts

Notice of public rights under local audit and Accountability Act 2014 and The Accounts of Audit Regulations 2015

Publication of accounts

The Accounts and Audit (England) Regulations 2015 – Regulation 10

As Amended By

The Accounts and Audit (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2020
Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014

Notice is hereby given under Regulation 10 (2) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 that the auditor has not been able to conclude their audit of the statement of accounts, which means that the accounts have not been able to be published by the revised specified date of 30 November 2020.

The delay in being able to comply with the revised publication date of 30 November 2020 is due to a series of checks on the accounts that have yet to be finalised. We expect these to be completed in the next two to three weeks.
