Local Government Transparency Code

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.

In 2015, the Government updated the Local Government Transparency Code. This sets out categories of information that all Councils should be publishing. 

We are committed to the Code and have endeavoured to publish the information. There may be some cases where we are still working on publishing extra pieces of information.
