Register of Interests

Each councillor has to complete a Register of Interests form upon election. This provides  information about any financial interest which a councillor has, or any benefit which he or she receives, which others might reasonably consider to influence his or her actions or words as a member of the Town Council.  It should also include relevant interests of their husband, wife, or civil partner.
