Transparency Code



The Transparency Code is issued to meet the government's desire to place more power into citizens' hands to increase democratic accountability.

It applies to parish councils and other types of authorities 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 on the occasions specified in the Code.
