Data Transparency

The Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency

(Pursuant to Section 2 of the Local Government, Planning & Land Act 1980)

The Local Government Transparency Code came into effect in October 2014, this is a code of recommended practice on data transparency and applies to Parish and Town Councils with a gross income or expenditure in excess of £200,000. The Government wants to increase transparency through the publication of open data enabling taxpayers to see how local authorities use public money. Keynsham Town Council provides the majority of this information already on the website but has taken steps to update this page with either the information required, or provided a link where it is already provided on this website.
