Transparency

With Coronavirus (COVID-19) now affecting many areas of our services to the residents and businesses of Amber Valley, we are keen to keep you right up-to-date with the changes we are being forced to make. Read more about your council services.

Amber Valley Borough Council is committed to being open and transparent about how we work, our decision-making processes and the services we provide.

We have used the local government transparency code, which recommends the data sets councils should make available as a minimum, as a starting point for deciding what information we should make available.

The data on this page is published under the open government license and is available for you to re-use as you like, including for commercial and research activities.

Please use the links below to view the data available under the local government transparency code:

    Details of each individual invoice of expenditure that exceeds £500.

    Governance is about how Amber Valley Borough Council ensures it is doing the right things, in the right way, at the right time to deliver our objectives. It is made up of all the systems, processes, culture and behaviours which direct and control the way in which we work and through which we account to, engage with and lead our communities. This code of corporate governance applies to the council’s elected members, officers and partnership arrangements.
