Minster-on-Sea Parish Council is held accountable and monitored in many ways. It undertakes an internal audit each year to check that its systems and finances are run correctly. All invoices and cheques are double-checked and signed off properly. There is also an external audit which allows a period of time for electors to have access to the accounts and raise questions with the auditor. The outcome of both the internal and external audits are made public.
In addition, copies of its budget and accounts are available on request from the Parish Clerk.
