Tax document published

A DOCUMENT will be published this month for people to see how their tax money is being spent.

Nottinghamshire County Council is publishing ‘All spend over £500’ to allow residents to see how the authority is using their tax money.

The move is in line with the Government requirement for all councils to publish their spending data to enable greater transparency and engagement with residents and encourage greater efficiency.

Cllr Reg Adair, the council’s cabinet member for finance and property, said: “Local authority spend has been shrouded in secrecy for too long and publishing our spend will allow the taxpayer to hold us to account.”
