About the Belchamp Walter Parish Council Website
This is the official website of the Belchamp Walter Parish Council. To fulfil the requirements according to the government.
Basically for a Parish Council or a small government agency this relates to GDPR and Transparency.
GDPR is making sure that you are careful with personal data, and that you publish a policy regarding how any data collected will be used and how it will be destroyed.

Transparency is the posting of financial data, such as items with a value of over £100 that form part of the accounts for the council and the accounts themselves.
