Councillors' Register of Interests
Keeping a public record
All members of a Council are required by law to complete a 'Register of Interests' form to provide details of any interests that might give rise to a conflict of interest in their duties as a councillor.
Each councillor must register their interests as soon as they take up office, and they are obliged by law to keep their statutory register up-to-date and to inform the Council's Monitoring Officer of any changes within 28 days of the change occuring.
The Register of Interests of all councillors are a public record and must be available online for members of the public to view. These rules apply not only to District Councillors at Waveney, but also to all Parish and Town Councillors within the Waveney area.

Our District Councillors Register of Interests are also shown as part of each Member's profile.
