Transparency Code For Smaller Authorities

Since the abolition of the Audit Commission, the Government has introduced a Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities, which covers local government organistions such as our Parish Council. The Code requires us to publish significantly more information on our web site, and to make it available in perpetuity. So our web pages have been revised to enable access to documents back as far as 2014 - many of which have previously been published on this web site and on the Parish Council notice boards.
