Finance and Accounts
All councils are expected to publicise payments over £500 under the Code of Recommended Practice for Local Authorities on Data Transparency.
Publication of these lists forms part of Upton and North Elmsall Parish Council’s commitment to be open and transparent with its residents. These will include all individual items the Parish Council purchases, payments made to contractors carrying out work on our behalf and other expenditure incurred in carrying out Parish Council business.
They will exclude payments made to staff, commercially sensitive information and any payments which may reveal personal details about an individual. Therefore, in some cases we will need to redact information to ensure compliance with the Data Protection Act.
