Transparency Code: Is your Council Compliant?

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 16:21 by Bethany Hibbs

Eligible 'Smaller Authorities' (those with an annual turnover of £25,000 and under) should have been compliant with the Transparency Code since July 2015.

Being compliant, involves the council publishing certain material on a free to access website for their electorate to view. More »

At CALC, we are able to offer a website 'check' for your council to give view as to whether or not the council is compliant with the Code. If you would like us to check your site, pop Bethany an email on enquiries@cornwallalc.org.uk.

And don't forget...Funding is still available through the transparency fund but only for this financial year- so hurry and ask how the fund can help your council! » Less

Newsletter Survey Results

Many thanks to all of our members who kindly completed our Newsletter Survey.

The results are now in and I can reveal that the consensus was... that we publish our newsletter less frequently. Therefore we will be moving to issuing a monthly newsletter instead of a weekly roundup. More »

This may present a couple of issues in that any urgent items will need to be sent out on an as and when basis. It will also require that clerks regularly check our website for any updates they may miss via email.

Thank you again for providing such valuable feedback!
