Committee details

Audit, Risk and Governance Committee

Members of the public are welcome to attend our meetings to watch them in person at any of the venues across the County. Publicly accessible meetings held in County Hall will be webcast, and we encourage people to view them that way. If you want to attend a meeting in person at any of the venues, note that there may not be space to maintain a social distance from others in the meeting room. We respect your individual choice whether to wear a mask – they are not mandatory, but some people feel more comfortable wearing one. You should not attend if you have tested positive for Coronavirus or if you have any symptoms of Coronavirus.

Anyone wanting to attend a meeting in person should contact us first at

Purpose of committee

The Audit and Governance Committee replaced the Audit Committee on 1 July 2012.  The Committee provides independent oversight of the adequacy of the council's governance, risk management and internal control framework, and oversees the financial reporting process. On 26 October 2017, the Full Council approved a proposal to change the name of the Committee to the Audit, Risk and Governance Committee.


Full details of the Committee's functions can be found in the County Council's Constitution.
