Transparency Code

The Local Government Transparency Code 2014 was introduced to meet the Government's desire to place more power into citizens' hands to increase democratic accountability and make it easier for local people to contribute to the local decision making process and help shape public services.  The Government believes that transparency is the foundation of local accountability and the key that gives people the tools and information they need to enable them to play a bigger role in society.

Brading Town Council's Transparency Code identifies what BradingTown Council is required to publish where relevant.

Public Speaking at Meetings

All members of the public are welcome to attend any Full Council or Committee meeting at which they are entitled to make a public representation.  If you would like to speak at a meeting you can view Brading Town Council's Guidance for public speaking at meetings which sets out the procedure for doing so.

Broadcasting & Social Media

The right to record, film and to broadcast meetings of the Council, Committees and Sub Committees was established following the Local Government Audit and Accountability Act 2014.  The Guidelines for broadcasting or using social media set out the rules governing this right.
