Transparency

We believe in being open and transparent in all areas of our work.

In line with the Government's commitment to freedom of information, we will publish requested data including information on spending, members and consultations according to our publication scheme. In accordance with the Openness of Local Government Bodies Regulations 2014, we will also provide a record of decisions and access to documents.

The Local Government Transparency Code 2014 was introduced to promote openness and accountability. We will provide the following information according to the code.

All the information included can be used and re-used under the terms of the Open Government Licence. As this is a new code and information is published periodically some may not be available but the table will be updated regularly.
