Transparency Code 2015

A new Local Government Transparency Code 2015 has been issued by the Department of Communities and Local Government.

This Code is issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services. Transparency is the foundation of local accountability and the key that gives people the tools and information they need to enable them to play a bigger role in society. The availability of data can also open new markets for local business, the voluntary and community sectors and social enterprises to run services or manage public assets.

The code requires the publication of certain information by 1 July each year. Please see below or follow the relevant links
