Under the Local Government Transparency Code, the Council is required to publish the following:
The Council does not have a Housing Revenue Account (HRA) as it sold all of its social housing stock in 2002 and closed its HRA. Council hostels are considered General Fund accommodation as they are for homeless residents of East Herts.
The Council publishes the amount of paid time off for union representatives to carry out trade union duties. This includes the total number of staff who are union representatives and devote at least 50% of their time to union duties.
The Council publishes the pay multiple in its Pay Policy Statement. This is the ratio between the highest taxable earnings for the given year and the median earnings figure for the whole authority's workforce.
