Summary of Personal Interest Returns

Personal Interests Returns are a new requirement under Division 3 of Part 6 (sections 132-136) of the Local Government Act 2020 (the 2020 Act).  They replace all previous requirements under the Local Government Act 1989 (1989 Act). A personal interest return is a record of the private interests of a person in public office that assists in improving probity. It particularly helps ensuring transparency and reducing conflicts of interest.

People who must lodge personal interest returns are councillors, members of delegated committees, the CEO, and nominated officers.

The Local Government Act 2020 (section 135 and 136) and the Regulations require that a summary of information submitted in Personal Interests Returns should be made available to the public. The 2020 Act and the supporting Regulations also state those matters which are required to be excluded from the summary.  The Local Government  Act 2020  and the Regulations sets out what information that can be accessed or disclosed publicly from information submitted in the Public Interests Returns.
