It's your right to hold Politicians to account

Your Councillors represent you on Sunderland Council, but what do they actually do for you? Our Transparency system uses open data in the public domain and presents it in a way that is easy to understand for all residents.

From now on, you can check in just a few simple clicks whether your Councillors work for you, or whether they work for themselves instead.

Note: Official Council records only date back to 2005 when legal requirements began, thus information prior to this date is therefore unavailable. More info →
