TheTransparency Code - Information being published by Everdon Parish Council in respect of the financial year ending 2015/16. (Annual publication should be no later than 1 July in the year immediately following the accounting year to which it relates). Information in respect of previous financial years are available on the menu.
The Code is designed to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. It applies to parish councils with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000. The code became mandatory from 1 April 2015 and requires the online publication of key spending and governance information. The Government considers that publication of the items in the Code will provide the local electorate and ratepayers with a clear picture of the activities of these smaller authorities.
