Personal Interest Returns

Section 133 of the Local Government Act 2020 (the 2020 Act) requires specified persons to lodge an initial person interest return with the Chief Executive Officer within a prescribed timeframe. Section 134 of the 2020 Act then requires a specified person (who continues to be a specified person) to lodge a biannual return with the Chief Executive Officer twice yearly. The matters contained in both the initial and biannual personal interest returns are prescribed in the Local Government (Governance and Integrity) Regulations 2020 (the 2020 Regulations).

A “specified person” means a Councillor, a member of a delegated committee who is not a Councillor, a Chief Executive Officer or a nominated officer. A nominated Officer means a member of Council staff who has been nominated by the Chief Executive Officer because of the nature of a power, duty or function connected to their role at Council.

Section 135 states that the Chief Executive Officer must prepare a summary of the personal interest information disclosed in the previous personal interest return. The summary must be published on Council’s internet site and available for inspection at the Council office.

It is important to note that the 2020 Act specifically states that the street address or number of the land that is a place of residence of any person is not be included in the public summary.

The summary of returns is managed by the Governance Department and can be located below.
