Code of Conduct
All councils are required by the Localism Act 2011 to adopt a code of conduct that sets out the rules governing the behaviour and registration of declaration of interests for their councillors when acting in their official capacity.
Tollesbury Parish Council Council has adopted the Local Government Association (LGA) Code of Conduct. It deals with behaviour such as:
- failing to respect others
- misuse of the Council’s resources
- failure to disclose pecuniary and non-pecuniary interests
- unlawfully disclosing confidential information
- misuse of the office of Councillor to improperly benefit somebody
Register of Interests
The Register of Interest sets out the nature of the interest which must be declared by each Councillor under the following headings:-
Disclosable Pecuniary Interests – Members are required to register not only their own interests under this heading but also those of their spouse or civil partner or of any person with whom they are living as husband and wife or as if they were civil partners and the Member is aware that the other person has the interest.
Other Pecuniary Interests – Members are only obliged to register their own interests under this heading and do not need to include the interests of spouses or civil partners or others.
Registerable Non-Pecuniary Interests – Members are only obliged to register their own interests under this heading and do not need to include the interests of spouses or civil partners or others.
The Monitoring Officer at Maldon District Council is required by the Localism Act 2011 to maintain a Register of Councillors’ interests and to publish the Register on the Council’s website. Members of the public can arrange to view Registers of Interest by contacting the Monitoring Officer firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 01621 854477.
