The intention of the Code is to increase transparency in the publication of public sector data and particularly around how public money is being spent, in order to allow local people to hold local authorities to account over how their council tax is spent and the decisions that are taken on their behalf.
Part 2 of the Code sets out the information that is recommended is published by town and parish councils with a gross annual income or expenditure over £200,000.
Wokingham Without Parish Council is committed to being open and transparent in its decision making processes and in the spending of taxpayer’s money and will strive to meet the publication requirements set out in Part 2 as far as these are relevant to the Council.
Local authorities are required to publish, under the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 (Statutory Instrument 2015/234)41:
• the number of employees whose remuneration in that year was at least £50,000 in brackets of £5,000
• details of remuneration
No employee of Wokingham Without Parish Council was paid in excess of £50,000
