The Transparency Fund is providing grants of up to £500 to cover the costs of setting up a new website or updating your existing one so that it complies with the Transparency Code. The fund will run over three years (2015-18) and is administered by NALC.
The Transparency Code came into force in April 2015 and requires all smaller councils with a turnover of less than £25,000 to provide taxpayers with a clear picture of Council’s activities, spending and governance by publishing this information on a website. You can read more about it on our Transparency Code page.
The Transparency Fund was opened in September 2015 to cover the costs of complying with the Transparency Code and applications are being considered on a monthly basis, while funding remains available.
The Fund will be administered through the CALCs who will be dealing with both member and non-member authorities.
