  • Transparency Code - (for smaller Parish Councils)
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. The information for each financial year will be available after the end of the financial year on 31 March and by 1 July at the latest. The exceptions to this are the current list of councillors & their responsibilities, and the minutes, agendas and papers of formal meetings which are published on an ongoing basis. 

You can access all of the information that we are required to publish under the Transparency Code by following the links shown below...
