In light of this our website carries a wealth of information in line with a number of 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
This means that we must be clear and proactive about the information we publish. To comply with this Act, we are placing an increasing amount of information on this website.
We publish a range of information which explains how we use public money to provide services to our communities
You can be assured that we are providing the information as required but there are overlaps and duplications between the various schemes which can make the information difficult to find.
To improve this situation we no longer indicate which legislation a piece of information ‘belongs’ to, rather we have structured the information by grouping it by subject matter.
