Tim Prater: Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

D. P. I.It is important that all Councillors follow the rules regarding declaring their Pecuniary Interests for the councils they sit on.

By doing so, it allows the public, councillors and officers to be clear if the decisions they are taking part in are likely to have more impact on them than others in their area. So for example, you would expect a Councillor to leave the room and not speak or vote on a planning appliation next to a property they own or live in for example, as the impact would be potentially disproprtionately felt by them which may impact their view.

Sitting on four different councils, I had the joy in May 2019 of filling in Disclosable Public Interest Forms for each Council, which are then ALL passed to the District Council and available on their website.

For enthusiasts, my forms for 2019-2023 (although I'll need to update them if I move etc) can be found at:
