New Parish Council websites are required to meet special Transparency rules by the end of March 2017. This involves the uploading of key information concerning the Council activities, policies and finances. The benefits to the community are greater access to Council information and activities. This process is also important in the lead up to changes in the External Audit procedures next year which will rely on more detailed information becoming available on Council websites. Contact the Clerk for further information.
