To promote openness and transparency, local authorities are required to publish expenditure data for all transactions over £500. This is in accordance with the Local Government Transparency Code 2015.

The Council will publish a list of all payments we make on a monthly basis; providing details of the supplier paid, the amount, a description of what was purchased and the service area making the purchase.

Some data is either not published or redacted to ensure that we do not publish personal or commercially sensitive information. The VAT amount that cannot be recovered is not available until end-of-year accounts are complete.
