Councillors' declaration of interests


Councillors must register and declare any interests that could cause a conflict of interest or that could influence their actions as Elected Members of the Council. They must do this within 28 days of either:

  • their election or appointment to office
  • becoming aware of any new interest

Viewing councillors' declared interests

Councillors must provide information to be put onto a Register of Interests. This is a public document that demonstrates openness and a willingness to be held to account.

The information they provide is published on these web pages, see councillors' declared interests.
