Declaration of Interest

Meeting: 25/08/2022 - Council (Item 224)

Declaration of Interest

To disclose the existence and nature of any Disclosable Pecuniary Interests, Other Registrable interests and Non-Registrable Interests relating to items of business on the agenda having regard to paragraph 9 and Appendix B of the Code of Conduct for Members.


(Members are reminded that they are also required to disclose any such interests as soon as they become aware should the need arise throughout the meeting).


Councillor W Stamp declared she was a Member of Essex County Council (ECC) and advised there were no items relating to the County Council on the agenda.  She sought guidance from the Monitoring Officer as to which category of interest this would fall under.


The Monitoring Officer advised that there was no need to declare membership of ECC if there was no relevant agenda item, however if there was it would be an other registrable interest as in part 2 of the Register of Interests form as ECC was a body that had public responsibilities and duties.


Councillor Stamp clarified that she therefore had no interest.


Councillor M F L Durham declared an other registrable interest as a Member of ECC.


Councillor Mrs J L Fleming declared a registrable interest as a Member of ECC.
