Model Publication Scheme & Data Transparency

Town Council

The Department of Communities and Local Government has produced a proposed Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency. The Government wants to increase transparency through publication of open and reusable data enabling taxpayers to see how local authorities are using public money. Warminster Town Council wishes to follow the Code as published and will arrange for the following information to be loaded onto its website to become accessible to its readers:
