Guidance on monthly expenditure data

The government's transparency programme aims to hold public bodies to account, deliver better value for money in public spending and help cut the record deficit. As part of the programme, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government requested that all local Councils publish details of all their supplier spending over £500.

Councils are required to publish data in CSV files, on a monthly basis, no later than 30 days after the month end. Details for our expenditure, by month, are available below.
