Any decision requiring consultation will be scaled appropriate to the impact of the change or service design. This may include direct communication with our membership base and the wider public but in each case feedback will be available through this website.

Publication of spend over £25,000

The Government wants public bodies to be more transparent in their work to help the public hold them to account. This includes being more proactive about financial matters and publishing all expenditure over £25,000.

Information from April 2010 to September 2010 is already available and subsequent expenditure will be published by the 15th working day of each month, starting on 19 November with October’s figures.
