Transparency Code

Government Funding is available to assist local councils with a turnover of less than £25k in complying with the Transparency Code for Smaller Councils. 

Last year SALC provided free funding of over £80k to parish councils in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and funding is still available in 2016/17.  If you did not apply last year, you may still apply.  For example if your council does not have its own computer/laptop or scanner.  You can also apply for setting up and maintaining a website, including staff training.  On going support for maintaining the website is also available.  Please see the new application form and guidance below where you can also download the Transparency Code for Smaller Councils (those with a turnover of less than £25,000) and the Transparency Code 2015 (for councils with a turnover of over £200,000).

Applications should be forwarded to SALC.
