Sections 133 and 134 of the Local Government Act 2020 requires specified persons to lodge initial and biannual personal interests returns, containing the matters prescribed by the Local Government (Governance and Integrity) Regulations 2020. Specified persons include the Chief Executive Officer and Councillors. Officers nominated by the CEO must also submit returns - these nominations will be monitored and expanded as required.
Biannual returns will be completed in March and September each year, with the most recent biannual return shown on the website. Where a Councillor or member of Council staff has resigned, these Personal Interest Returns are removed from the public summary, but are retained in Council's records.
In accordance with s135 of the Local Government Act 2020, the current summary of personal interests returns can be downloaded below:
