Transparency Code

In December 2014 the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) issued the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities. The Code is a requirement for smaller authorities to make information available for local people to increase democratic accountability.

This page allows you to access all of the information that we are required to publish under the Transparency Code and includes; all items of expenditure above £100, end of year accounts, annual governance statement and internal audit report Bank reconciliation, and Significant variances.

More details on the Transparency Code can be obtained here.
