Payments to suppliers

The monthly reports below list payments made to external bodies and suppliers that are over £1,000 (excluding VAT). For data protection reasons, these exclude any payments made to individuals. 

Publication of these reports form part of the Councils commitment to be open and transparent with its residents. Data will be published on a monthly basis within 5 working days of each month end.
If you would like to know more about the type of business conducted with these suppliers, please email

We will aim to provide a response as soon as possible. We aim to be as transparent as we can but in some cases we will need to respect information that could be seen as commercially sensitive.
