A2/22

Disclosure of Interest

Members and co-opted Members of the Council are reminded that, in

accordance with the Council’s Code of Conduct and the statutory

provisions of the Localism Act, they are required to consider in advance

of each meeting whether they have a disclosable pecuniary interest

(DPI), an other registrable interest (ORI) or a non-registrable interest

(NRI) in relation to any matter on the agenda. If advice is needed,

Members should contact the Monitoring Officer in good time before the

meeting.

 

If any Member or co-opted Member of the Council identifies a DPI or

ORI which they have not already registered on the Council’s register of

interests or which requires updating, they should complete the

disclosure form which can be obtained from Democratic Services at any

time, copies of which will be available at the meeting for return to the

Monitoring Officer.

 

Members and co-opted Members are required to disclose any DPIs and

ORIs at the meeting.

 

·       Where the matter relates to a DPI they may not participate in any discussion or vote on the matter and must not stay in the meeting unless granted a dispensation.

·       Where the matter relates to an ORI they may not vote on the matter unless granted a dispensation.

·       Where a Member or co-opted Member has an NRI which directly relates to their financial interest or wellbeing, or that of a relative or close associate, they must disclose the interest at the meeting, may not take part in any discussion or vote on the matter and must not stay in the meeting unless granted a dispensation. Where a matter affects the NRI of a Member or co-opted Member, section 9 of Appendix B of the Code of Conduct sets out the test which must be applied by the Member to decide whether disclosure is required.

 

The Chair will invite Members to make their disclosure orally at the

commencement of Agenda item 3, to be recorded in the minutes.

Minutes:

There were no disclosures of a pecuniary interest not already registered.
