Register of Annual Disclosure of Pecuniary Interests and Other Matters Returns

Under Council’s Code of Conduct Councillors and designated staff must submit a disclosure of pecuniary interests return each year.

The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009, the Government Information (Public Access) Regulation 2009 and Information Privacy Commissioner Guidelines, states that information in the returns is open access but subject to the public interest test.

Council has determined that there was an overriding public interest against disclosure of certain personal information contained in the Returns published online and specific information has been redacted to exclude signatures, personal addresses, personal information and to protect the interests of Councillors and Senior Staff.
