Audit findings on the sale of Whitehaven Golf Course
There was an objection to the Copeland Council accounts for 2006/7 in respect of the sale of land at Whitehaven Golf Course.
In response to this the Auditor included the following in his annual governance report.
"During the audit I considered issues raised by an elector in respect of the arrangements in place for dealing with a sale of some council property. I concluded that I did not need to exercise my statutory powers in this respect but I made recommendations to the council to improve its arrangements. The council have agreed with all the recommendations and implemented them with immediate effect."
