Frampton Cotterell Parish Council - Data Transparency

The Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency

(Pursuant to Section 2 of the Local Government, Planning & Land Act 1980)

The Local Government Transparency Code came into effect in October 2014. This is a code of recommended practice on data transparency, and applies to Parish and Town Councils with a gross income or expenditure in excess of £200,000.

The Government wants to increase transparency through publication of open data enabling tax payers to see how local authorities use public money.  Frampton Cotterell Parish Council provides the majority of this information already on our website, but has taken steps to provide most documents in one area for ease of reference.

Please contact the Clerk if you require information on this subject, via
