Newstead Parish Council conducts the auditing process as outlined in the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2014.

The Transparency Code for smaller councils (under £25,000) and The Transparency Code for larger councils (over £200,000) does not legislatively apply, however the Council recognises best practice outlined in the Transparency Code for smaller councils, giving electors information they need to examine the Council, by publishing information about Council decisions and governance online.

If you need more information or further documentation please contact the Clerk at and they will do their best to assist you.
