Register Of Interests
The Localism Act requires councillors to complete a Register of
Pecuniary Interests and to have their details placed on the website. Details
regarding a pecuniary interest for each West Moors Parish Councillor are shown
under the Parish Council tab, by clicking on the name of the councillor their Register of Interests will display.
This is to help demonstrate transparency in the decision-making process. If their interest arises on an item at a meeting, the councillor cannot take part in the discussion or in voting on that item (unless they possess a dispensation). Councillors are required to declare such interests if they arise in a meeting. Failure to declare such an interest may constitute a criminal offence.
