Personal Interest Returns
The Local Government Act 2020 requires that all specified persons (for example a Councillor, a member of a delegated committee who is not a Councillor, a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or a nominated officer) must lodge an initial personal interests return with Council’s CEO within 30 days of appointment.
A biannual return must then be lodged by all ongoing specified persons in March and September each year with Council’s CEO.
The CEO must prepare a summary of the personal interests information disclosed.
The Act and the Local Government (Governance and Integrity) Regulations 2020 detail what information must be included and and excluded in the summary. The CEO must make sure the summary is available on Council’s website. A copy of the summary of personal interests is also available for inspection at the office of Council during normal office hours.
