The Localism Act 2011 contains specific rules governing Disclosable Pecuniary Interests (DPIs) that apply to both District and Parish Councillors. There is a requirement for Councillors to register their DPIs and for this information to be available on the District Council website for public inspection. Failure to register a DPI is a criminal offence.
District Councillor interest forms are published on their individual web pages.
Parish Councillors’ Register of Interest forms can be found on the web page of each relevant parish council.
Councillors must not participate in any discussion or vote on any matter in which they are aware they have a DPI regardless of whether they are a Parish or District Councillor. More information can be found on our Standards page.
