Transparency Code for Small Authorities

This code is issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. Transparency gives local people the tools and information they need to hold local public bodies to account.

Under the audit framework smaller authorities, including parish councils, with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000 will be exempt from routine audit.

In accordance with the Code – Sutton Benger Parish Council hereby publish:
