7. Declaration of interests

7.1 The Local Government Act, 1972 and the National Code of Conduct must be adhered to scrupulously so that not only is impropriety avoided but so too is any appearance or grounds for suspicion of improper conduct.

7.2 Members need to register and declare certain interests and this is covered in the Code of Conduct for Members. The guiding rule for both Councillors and officers is that they must not use their position to further private or personal interests rather than the public interest or give grounds for any suspicion in that connection.

7.3 Where a Member declares a prejudicial interest he or she must withdraw from the relevant proceedings and not seek improperly to influence them.
