Register of interests
Councillors are required to be open and transparent by notifying
the council of their personal interests -otherwise known
as disclosable pecuniary interests (DPIs).
For example, if a councillor is a partner of another
company or has land within the Medway area this would be considered
a DPI and must be declared.
Declarations are recorded in a register, which is open
to public inspection in the council's offices at Gun Wharf,
Chatham, and a register of interests form can be accessed for
each councillor online.
Councillors must also notify the council of any gifts
or hospitality they receive that are worth more than £100. This is
also recorded in the register.
More information on DPIs can be found in the Relevant
Authorities (Disclosable Pecuniary Interests) Regulations 2012
made by the Secretary of State and are set out in chapter one
of Medway Council's code of conduct.
