My hobbies are DIY, current affairs, reading, gardening, keeping fit and walking.

I hail from Haydock in Lancashire (originally a small mining village) that has been decimated by developers who have totally ruined the character of the place, something that I am determined is NOT going to happen to our beautiful village!

You must promote and support high standards of conduct when serving in your public post, in particular as characterised by the above requirements, by leadership and example. 

Registering and declaring pecuniary and non-pecuniary interests 

You must, within 28 days of taking office as a member or co-opted member, notify your authority’s Monitoring Officer of any disclosable pecuniary interest as defined by regulations made by the Secretary of State, where the pecuniary interest is yours, your spouse’s or civil partner’s, or is the pecuniary interest of somebody with whom you are living with as a husband or wife, or as if you were civil partners.

In addition, you must, within 28 days of taking office as a member or co-opted member, notify your authority’s monitoring officer of any disclosable pecuniary or non-pecuniary interest which your authority has decided should be included in the register.

If an interest has not been entered onto the authority’s register, then the member must disclose the interest to any meeting of the authority at which they are present, where they have a disclosable interest in any matter being considered and where the matter is not a ‘sensitive interest’.

Following any disclosure of an interest not on the authority’s register or the subject of pending notification, you must notify the monitoring officer of the interest within 28 days beginning with the date of disclosure.

Unless dispensation has been granted, you may not participate in any discussion of, vote on, or discharge any function related to any matter in which you have a pecuniary interest as defined by regulations made by the Secretary of State.

1 A ‘sensitive interest’ is described in the Localism Act 2011 as a member or co- opted member of an authority having an interest, and the nature of the interest being such that the member or co-opted member, and the authority’s monitoring officer, consider that disclosure of the details of the interest could lead to the member or co-opted member, or a person connected with the member or co- opted member, being subject to violence or intimidation.

 

Councillors' register of disclosable pecuniary interests

The same Act requires these details to be published on a parish council's own website or via a link to the website of its principal authority.
