The Elmstead Parish Council website holds all the information in areas as required by the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities. We are not a Smaller Authority but follow NALC guidelines for all councils with an annual turnover of less than £200,000 per year to comply with the above code.

In meeting these requirements we publish the following on this website:

  • all items of expenditure above £100 (these are found in our monthly finance reports)
  • end of year accounts
  • annual governance statement (annual return)
  • internal audit report
  • list of councillor responsibilities
  • details of public land and building assets
  • Agendas and meeting papers of formal meetings at least three days before the meeting 
  • Minutes within a month of the meeting

Should any errors or omissions come to light, these will corrected in good time thereafter.
