Transparency code

In 2015 the government published a Transparency Code[1] which applies to parish councils such as Waterbeach who have a gross annual income or expenditure exceeding £200,000. We list below items in the code and provide links to the information where it is currently available on our website.

  1. all items of expenditure above £500 (details of all payments can be found in the reports submitted to all Council meetings)
  2. end of year accounts[2]
  3. annual governance statement (note that all information about the audit can be found here)[3].
  4. internal audit report (see above).
  5. list of councillor or member responsibilities[4]
  6. public land and building assets[5][5].
  7. Minutes, agendas and meeting papers of formal meetings[6]
