A few notes about this website:
Its primary purpose is to provide the Bradford Abbas community with information about the the Parish Council according to the Transparency Code for Smaller Authorities which came into law in 2014.
This Code is issued to meet the Government’s desire to place more power into citizens’ hands to increase democratic accountability. Transparency gives local people the tools and information they need to hold local public bodies to account.
In due course, if there's a demand for it, Societies and other groups in Bradford Abbas could have their own space on the website .
