Elected Members register of interests

The purpose of the register of interests in accordance with the legislation in the Local Government Act 1999 is to inform members and the public about the ongoing interests of current members of council to ensure that council members are managing their conflicts of interests and making critical decisions in the public interest . The intention is that the Register is a ‘living’ document, to be updated from time to time with information from the relevant returns provided by members.
