Councillors Declaration of Interest

Members have a responsibility to declare any personal and/or prejudicial interest in any item of business.

There is a standing item on every Council and Committee agenda headed 'Declaration of Interests'. This item reminds Members of their responsibility to declare any personal and/or prejudicial interest which they may have in an item of business on the agenda either at the beginning of the discussion or when the interest becomes apparent and, in the case of personal and prejudicial interests (subject to certain exceptions in the Council's Code of Conduct for Members), to leave the meeting prior to discussion and voting on the item.

These declarations of interests are recorded in the minutes of the Council or Committee meeting and on the "Your Councillor" webpage.
