Code of Conduct and Register of Interests

All councillors must adhere to a Code of Conduct [88KB] . In order to be open and transparent, each councillor is required to complete a 'Notification of Interests' form detailing their 'Disclosable Pecuniary Interests' and other interests in line with our Code of Conduct for Members. The form provides details of interests such as their type of employment, interests in land, and membership of political groups and charities etc. 

Find a District councillor to view their Notification of Interest form.

To see a Parish or Town councillors' Register of Interest form, search for the Parish or Town Council and select the councillor from the list.
