Which councillors need to register their interests?
The law requires (Local Government Act 2000) all members and co-opted members of district and parish councils are to complete a Register of Interests form to register their financial and other interests. A Register of Interests form must be completed within 28 days of being elected.
The register of interests includes:
- Details of any employment or business carried on by them.
- The name of their employer.
- Details of people who have paid towards election expenses.
- Contracts between themselves/their firm and the Council.
- Interests in any land in the area; details of any directorships.
