What We Must Publish

In accordance with the Transparency Code for Smaller Autorities , the Parish Council is required to publish the details of each individual item of expenditure above £100. This is because we have opted to be exempt from routine external audit.

Publishing a complete list of expenditure transactions will also meet this Transparancy Code requirement. Expenditure information need only be published for each individual spending transaction above £100 rather than each item bought per transaction.

The Parish Council has opted to publish a complete list of expenditure transactions. Below are the items of expediture that have been made to date in the current financial year, which runs from 1st April to 31st March.

Expenditure Control

All items of expenditure are approved by Council prior to execution and each payment is subject to dual authorisation. Each item is allocated a transaction identifier which is also recorded on the associated invoice. All invoices are available for inspection on request from the Parish Clerk. The expenditure for a given financial year is subject to an internal audit prior to completion of the annual return. The public has a right to inspect the Council’s accounts.

How do I navigate the Document List?

The List Length

The document list is initially displayed with the first 10 entries visible. The Show Entries drop-down selection box, above and to the left of the document list, may be used to show more (or less) entries at a time. The number of list entries currently shown and the total number of entries in the full list is displayed below the document list.


The Previous, Page No. and Next buttons below the document list may be used to navigate between the list pages if not all the list entries are shown at once.

The List Length and Pagination work together. Changing the List Length as above changes the number of pages accordingly.

Note that if the total number of documents in the list is less than 10, neither the List Length selection box or the Pagination buttons are displayed.


The documents are initially listed in a pre-defined order. The list order may be changed by selecting either the ID or Document Name column headings. The up/down arrow on the right side of the colum heading indicates the current sort direction. Selecting the column heading again reverses the sort order.

Note that changing the sort direction affects all the documents in the list, not just those that may be currently visible. When changing the sort order, the list is re-displayed from the first page if the list is currently paginated.
