Parish Council’s Transparency Code Information & Policy Documents

The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 sets out a new audit framework for local public authorities which were previously covered by the Audit Commission regime. Under this  framework, parish councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine external audit. Instead, these parish councils are required to publish key information to the public under the Transparency Code.

[Note:- While great care is taken to ensure the accuracy of these documents, readers are advised that the formal documents and other Council records are held by the Parish Clerk. They are available for inspection by prior arrangement.  Please send any queries or clarifications to the Parish Clerk.]
