Empowering Parish and Town Councils in Northamptonshire

Transparency Fund Open For Business

The government has made funding available to assist parish councils to achieve compliance with the Transparency Code. A fund of £3.4 million over three years will be administered on behalf of government by the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and delivered through County Associations (CALCs).

The fund is available to parish and town councils whose turnover is below £25,000, where turnover is defined as the higher of the gross income for the year and the gross expenditure for the year.

You can download a copy of the Transparency Code from:

Funding is available for all sorts of things, from establishing a web presence, revamping an existing web site, purchasing IT equipment and staff time to scan and upload documents to web sites.
