Gift Register

Recent amendments to the Local Government Act 1995 and subsidiary legislation has imposed new disclosure requirements on employees and councillors in regards to gifts and travel contributions.

Councillors and designated employees are required to declare gifts and travel contributions within 10 days of receipt, as opposed to in the annual return.  The Chief Executive Officer is required to make this information available on the local government's official website.

Prior to the amendments to the Local Government Act 1995 proclaimed on the 18 October 2019, local governments were required to maintain a register of gifts and travel contributions received by the Mayor, Elected Members, Chief Executive Officer and relevant employees. This register is now redundant but is required to remain publicly available.
