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.


At meetings where members of the public are allowed to be in attendance and speak, any Councillor with a disclosable pecuniary interest or other significant interest may also make representations, give evidence or answer questions about the matter.  The Councillor must then withdraw immediately from the meeting before the matter is discussed and any vote taken.


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.

This item includes an appendix which contains information exempt

within the meaning of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act

1972 and is not for publication. The appendix has been circulated

to the Committee members only.


Any discussion on the contents of an exempt appendix will require

the Committee to pass the proposed resolution at the end of the

agenda to exclude members of the public and press from the

proceedings for that discussion



Proposed resolution:


Under Section 100A (4) of the Local Government Act 1972, that the

public and press be excluded from the meeting during the consideration

of the following items of business, on the grounds that they contain the

likely disclosure of exempt information, as defined in paragraph 3 of

Schedule 12A of the said Act, as it contains information relating to the

financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the

authority holding that information)
