Transparency Code

The Local Government Transparency Code was issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.  Transparency is the foundation of local accountability and the key that gives people the tools and information they need to enable them to play a bigger role in society.

The Transparency Code sets out the minimum information/data that local authorities should be publishing, the frequency by which it should be published and how it should be published.  A copy of the Department for Communities and Local Government’s (DCLG) Local Government Transparency Code 2015 can be found here:
