Register of Interests

A Register of Interests must be kept by the Chief Executive Officer of the Council, detailing the financial and non-financial interests of each Councillor and their immediate family. The CEO must not delegate the power to keep a Register of Interests.

A local government must ensure a public extract of a Register of Interests for Councillors may be inspected by the public at the local government's public office and on its website. The public extract will include information in the register relating to:

  • gifts received
  • hospitality benefits received
  • memberships of organisations

A Councillor must advise the CEO (on the prescribed form) within 30 days of knowing there has been a change in their status in the register.

The inclusion of a personal interest on a Councillor's register of interest does not make the Councillor exempt from making a declaration of either a material personal interest or a conflict of interest at a Council meeting.
