Warning

The form #15 does not exist or it is not published.

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 (the code) came into effect on 1 April 2015. The code is issued by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government in exercise of powers under section 2 of the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980, and replaces any previous codes issued in relation to authorities in England under those powers.

The code does not replace or supersede the existing framework for access to and re-use of public sector information provided by the:

  • Freedom of Information Act 2000 (as amended by the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012)
  • Environmental Information Regulations 2004
  • Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005
  • Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community regulations 2009
  • Sections 25 and 26 of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 which provides rights for persons to inspect a local authority’s accounting records and supporting documentation, and to make copies of them.

Crowborough Town Council meets the definition of a local authority covered by the requirements of the code, defined as ‘a parish council which has gross annual income or expenditure (whichever is higher) exceeding £200,000’.

The code requires local authorities in England to publish the following information quarterly:

Additionally, local authorities are required to publish the following information annually:

Crowborough Town Council complies with the requirements of the code by publishing the information on this website. Hard copies are available on request from the Town Council office.

Full details of the code can be found here Local Government Transparency Code 2015

Local authorities are already required to make their constitution documents available for inspection at their offices under section 9P of the Local Government Act 2000. Local authorities must also, under the code, publish their constitution on their website.

Crowborough Town Council’s constitution is made up of the Standing Orders, Financial Regulations and Code of Conduct, which can be found by clicking on the links below.

 

Standing Orders

Financial Regulations

Code of Conduct

The code requires that local authorities must publish the pay multiple on their website, defined as the ratio between the highest paid taxable earnings for the given year (including base salary, variable pay, bonuses, allowances and the cash value of any benefits-in-kind) and the median earnings figure of the whole of the authority’s workforce. The measure must:

  • Cover all the elements of remuneration that can be valued
  • Use the median earnings figure as the denominator, which should be that of all employees of the local authority on a fixed date each year, coinciding with reporting at the end of the financial year
  • Exclude changes in pension benefits, which due to their variety and complexity cannot be accurately included in a pay multiple disclosure

 

Crowborough Town Council’s pay multiple as at 1 April 2018 is 2.20

Welcome to our new Community Warden

A big welcome to Chris Harrison who will be joining us as our new Community Warden over the next couple of months.

Chris' work patterns will vary but he will aim to cover a variety of days, evenings and weekends. Chris will be familiar to many Crowborough residents as he served as one of the town's PCSOs for 11 years.
