Transparency

The Government has published ‘The Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency’ which effectively recommends parish councils which have a gross annual income or expenditure (whichever is the higher) of a least £200,000 to publish ‘Public Data’.

The Code of Recommended Practice for local authorities is to provide greater transparency of public bodies, which is at the heart of their mandate to enable greater democratic accountability over how council tax and public money is spent. However, Public Data does not include personal information as this would contravene the Data Protection Act 2018.

In accordance with the Code of Recommended Practice and general good practice, Haydon Wick Parish Council makes the following information available:
