It applies to the following types of authorities with an annual turnover not exceeding £25,000:

The code is mandatory from 1 April 2015 and requires the online publication of key spending and governance information on the occasions specified in the Code.
The Transparency Fund
The Government provided grants for local councils to set up a website. However, this fund is now closed.
“Many thanks for all your help with this which has been very much appreciated.”
