Model Publication Scheme & Data Transparency
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:
Grants and payments under contract to the voluntary community and social enterprise sector clearly itemized and listed
- Warminster & Villages Development Trust (Information Hub)
Senior salaries which are above £58,200
The Council has no members of staff earning a salary in excess of this figure
An organisational chart of the staff structure
An annual budget of £1000 is set aside for the Mayor to draw upon for expenses incurred whilst attending Civic functions (see Mayor and Members’ Expenses Policy below). Town councillors do not receive an allowance or other expenses.
The Constitution is made up of the following documents:
Annual Town Meetings
Note: the 2020 meeting did not go ahead due to Covid-19 Restrictions.
