Local Government 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.
