Transparency code for smaller authorities
This code is issued to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability.
It applies to the following types of authorities with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000:
- parish councils
- internal drainage boards
- charter trustees
- port health authorities
The code is mandatory from 1 April 2015 and requires the online publication of key spending and governance information on the occasions specified in the Code.
Edington Parish Council will publish their annual audited accounts below.
