Transparency Code

In 2015, the Government updated the Local Government Transparency Code which sets out categories of information that all Councils should be publishing. We already publish much of the information set out in the Code and we are in the process of finalising any information that is not already available.

We are fully committed to the Code and have endeavoured to publish the information as fully as possible. There may be some cases where we are still working on publishing additional pieces of information that are not yet available. This is primarily down to changes required in information management systems where historically we have not collated or recorded information in a format that makes the information easily obtainable.

Information we publish quarterly

  •  Each individual item of expenditure that exceeds £500
  •  Details of any contract, commissioned activity, purchase order, framework agreement and any other legally enforceable agreement with a value that exceeds £5,000
  •  Details of all land and building assets.

Information we publish annually

  •  Details of all grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations.
