The provision of this data follows the Local Government Spending Guidance recommendations published by the Government in September 2010.
Spending data has been provided in PDF and CSV file types. PDF files are easy to read and printer friendly. The CSV format uses a standard column width so not all entries may be completely visible. This data is best viewed using spreadsheet software; you may need to expand the columns to an appropriate width.
Please see how to access PDF files.
Please note that prior to April 2012, data files did not include transaction details where the total value of each invoice was below £500 (exclusive of VAT). From April 2012 onwards, details of all payments are provided, except where the exclusions noted above apply.
