Declarations of Interest

If a Councillor has a disclosable pecuniary interest in a particular item, whether or not it is entered in the Authority’s register of interests, or any other significant interest which they consider should be declared in the public interest, they should declare the existence and, unless it is a sensitive interest as defined in the Member Code of Conduct, the nature of the interest at the commencement of the consideration of that item or as soon as it becomes apparent.


Where Members of the public are not allowed to be in attendance and speak, then the Councillor with a disclosable pecuniary interest should withdraw from the meeting whilst the matter is under consideration. Councillors who have declared other significant interests should also withdraw from the meeting if they consider their continued participation in the matter would not be reasonable in the circumstances and may give rise to a perception of a conflict of interest.


Councillors are not obliged to withdraw from the meeting where a dispensation to that effect has been obtained from the Standards Committee.

Greening of the Housing Stock pdf icon PDF 726 KB

Hammersmith and Fulham’s council housing accounts for 83% of the organisation’s operational emissions and 8% of total borough emissions. It is essential to reduce this by driving energy efficiency, decarbonising people’s homes, and building energy efficient homes. Greening the housing stock is therefore important to address these areas and a ‘Retrofit Strategy’ is currently being developed that will outline the approach to achieve this. The aim of this paper is to explain how the strategy will influence council policy in 4 key areas:


1.    Increasing the energy efficiency of H&F homes

2.    Transitioning to low carbon heat

3.    Supporting fuel poverty

4.     Adapting the council’s stock
