Cost of Living

With significant rise in the cost of living we know that some households will be struggling financially, emotionally or because they need practical advice and help. Here is some key information on what support is available and how to access it. As new schemes, advice and support becomes available this page will be kept updated.

Transparency

In February 2015 the Government issued the Local Government Transparency Code 2015.

Part 2 of the Code requires Boston Borough Council to proactively publish, as a minimum, certain categories of information.

This information includes Expenditure exceeding £250, Government Procurement Card transactions, Procurement Information, Local Authority Land, Social Housing Assets, Grants to voluntary, community and social Enterprise organisations, Organisation Chart, Trade Union Facility time, Parking account, Parking spaces, Senior Salaries, Constitution, Pay multiple, Fraud and Waste Contracts.

The Local Government Transparency Code 2015 does not replace or supersede any existing legal framework for access to public sector information provided by the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Environmental Information Regulations 2004 and the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015.

By complying with the requirements of the Code, we are working to improve the accessibility, relevance and value of data on our spending, revealing more detailed information than ever before on where your money goes.
