Local government transparency code 2015

NLWA publishes the information it is required to publish by the local government transparency code 2015 . This information includes details of all payments to suppliers for invoices greater than £500, the Authority’s Standing Orders and information on land and building assets the Authority uses to deliver services. Information on senior employee salary details is also available in the annual statements of accounts.

Details of the information published are listed below. Further information on the 2015 local government transparency code, including definitions is available on the .gov website

  • Authority organisational chart - this is available in our annual report
  • Authority constitution or Standing Orders are available in the Standing Orders section of this website.
  • Senior employee salary details - these are available in our annual statements of accounts. The 2014/15 median salary multiple is 3.98

  • NLWA land holdings - the Authority's land holdings are available here with the plan attached showing the retained land at Edmonton listed on the schedule of land holdings.
  • Grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations - NLWA does not offer grants, but it does make payments for reusable nappies and for reuse and recycling credits (following receipt of successful applications). These payments will be identified in the monthly payments to suppliers for invoices greater than £500.
