Transparency data

The Local Government Transparency Code 2014 sets out the minimum data that local authorities should publish, the frequency it should be published and how it should be published.

Spending over £500

Details of council spending for amounts of £500 or more. The council is committed to transparency in all of its dealings and the publication of spending information enables residents to challenge how council money is spent.

The data provides details of each individual item of expenditure that exceeds £500, including items of expenditure, consistent with Local Government Association guidance.

Gender Pay Gap

The Gender Pay Gap legislation introduced in April 2017 requires private and public sector with employers with 250 plus employees to report the following information on an annual basis:

  • the difference between the mean and median average hourly rate of pay for male and female employees;
  • the proportion of men and women in each quartile of the pay bands;
  • the gender pay gap for any bonuses paid out during the year.

N.B. The Council does not pay any bonuses.


Details of the council's activity to detect and address fraud.

Councillor allowances

The council is run by 39 councillors who are elected by the local community.

Councillors are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the local community about local services and budgets, including the level of the council tax set by the district council.

Each councillor represents an area within the district – known as a ward - and serves for a period of four years.

Councillors are not paid a salary, but they are entitled to allowances and expenses to cover some of the costs of carrying out their public duties. All councillors abide by a code of conduct, part of which requires them to declare any financial interests, gifts or hospitality that could influence any decisions they make.

Open data

Our data is freely re-useable under the terms detailed on the Open Government Licence.

Social housing asset value

Local Authorities are required to publish details annually  of  the value of social housing stock that is held in their Housing Revenue accounts.  

The National Fraud Initiative

This is an exercise that matches electronic data within and between public and private sector bodies to prevent and detect fraud.
