For Dalton Parish Council

Recently the Government put in place a Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities. This code is issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. Transparency gives local people the tools and information they need to hold local public bodies to account.

To meet the criteria of this Code, and ensure the public has access to the information the Government dictates should be published, all Parish Councils were required to set up a website.
