Review it

As part of the drive for openness and transparency, the Council has developed this area to bring together new and existing information to enable members of the public to research answers to their questions and help drive down costs.

We have achieved a key milestone in the Government's challenge for councils to provide greater disclosure of our activities online. The latest information is the publication of details of all payments for goods, services and grants.

Local spending data

The Government's guidance on publishing spending data requires all Local Authorities to publish their spending data in monthly files, starting in January 2011, and for these files to be in CSV (comma-separated values) file format. The content and layout of each file is also prescribed in the guidance.

In addition to the minimum requirements, Woking has also made available files back to April 2010, which will allow for more informed comparisons of the data going forward. We have also decided to publish details of ALL payments (not just those over the 500 limit suggested by the Government) and to provide additional copies of the files in PDF file format, which are generally easier for the casual reader to use.

The monthly files in CSV format are available here.

The PDF copies are available here.

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions on the information in these files, please e-mail Financial Services or complete our contact form.

We publish the minutes of all Woking Borough Council meetings on our website and it is possible to access them here. Also, members of the public can attend Council meetings and listen to the debates from the public gallery. The Council has recently granted permission for members of the public to access its wireless network from the Council Chamber in order to 'tweet' developments as they happen.

The Council publishes a range of information about performance in the monthly Performance and Financial Monitoring Information, commonly called the 'Green Book'. Current and back copies of the Green Book can be found here.

At the end of each quarter, Woking Borough Council's Executive receives a report on the progress of projects. These can be found here
