Essential maintenance

Due to scheduled maintenance some of our forms and online payments systems will be unavailable between 8am and 9am on Tuesday 18 February 2020. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Councillors' interests

You can view and download a copy of each Councillor’s Statutory Register of Members Interests from their Councillor page.

You can also read a copy of each Councillor’s Statutory Register of Members Interests at the Council House Reception Desk during normal office hours. You will need to pay a small fee if you want a copy of it.

What is the Statutory Register of Members Interests?

The City Council’s Monitoring Officer keeps a record called the Statutory Register of Members Interests. This is an official record which contains information about a Councillor that someone might reasonably think could influence their actions or words. This includes details of:

  • financial interests, such property, shares and dividends, and employment, including information about a Councillor’s partner’s employment
  • any company or organisation that a Councillor is involved with.

All Councillors must keep their Statutory Register up-to-date and tell the Monitoring Officer about any changes within 28 days of them happening.

What is a Gift Register?

Councillors must also tell the Monitoring Officer if they receive a gift, have a meal or attend an event free of charge in their role as a Councillor.  Again, they must tell the Monitoring Officer within 28 days of receiving the gift, meal or attending the event.

Not all Councillors will have a Gift Register.

Copies of the Gift Registers can be viewed from the Councillor’s pages and at the Council House Reception Desk during normal office hours.
