The Transparency Code includes the following:-
"Smaller authorities should publish the draft minutes from all formal meetings (i.e. full council or board, committee and sub-committee meetings) not later than one month after the meeting has taken place."
"Smaller authorities should also publish meeting agendas, which are as full and informative as possible, and associated meeting papers not later than three clear days before the meeting to which they relate is taking place."
"The data and information specified in this Code must be published on a website which is publicly accessible free of charge."
The code is a requirement for all councils with a turnover of less than £25,000 and considered to be the minimum standard for larger councils.
