Local Government Transparency Code
The local government transparency code has been issued with the intention of placing more power into citizens’ hands and thus increasing democratic accountability. The code makes it a requirement for local authorities to publish a range of information, which is intended to make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services. The code can be viewed in full on the GOV.UK website. The current code was finalised in October 2014 and contains two sets of information; that which must be published and that which is recommended for publication. Wherever possible, Arun District Council has published information from both lists.
