The Local Government Act 1972 enabled Parish & Town Councils to be established and gave guidelines as to their role and the powers and duties that they would have.
Parish & Town Councils are the first tier of local government and many would say the most important tier, as they are closest to the community. They are governed by statute and they have powers and duties that enable them to spend money.
At the Annual General Meeting of the Parish Council, the Standing Orders are adopted.
The Parish Council is now governed by the ‘Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities’. This code was first issued in 2014 to meet the government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. The Code shapes our audit regime and ensures that we are carrying out our duties in an open & transparent manner. It also defines the information that should be available and the format in which we must make it available.
The freedom of information publication scheme also lists public documents that must be available.
