In light of this our website carries a wealth of information in line with some legal requirements including:
Local Government Transparency Code
Designed to make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision-making process and help shape public services.
Freedom of Information Act
The Act means that we must be transparent and proactive about what we publish and to comply we are placing an increasing amount of information on our website.
We publish a range of information which explains how we use public money to provide services to our communities
Be assured that we are providing the information as required but there are overlaps and duplications between the various schemes which can make the data hard to find.
To improve this situation, we no longer indicate to which legislation a piece of information ‘belongs’. Instead, we have structured the information by grouping it by subject matter.
