Declaration of Pecuniary Interests

Meeting: 18/12/2018 - Planning Applications Committee (Item 1)

Declaration of Pecuniary Interests

Under Standing Order 4.4, where any councillor has a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct (para. 4)) in any matter to be considered at a meeting of the Council, a committee, sub-committee or joint committee, they must withdraw from the meeting room during the whole of the consideration of that matter and must not participate in any vote on that matter unless a dispensation has been obtained from the Monitoring Officer.




With regard to Application 17/05807/EIAFUL, Councillor Joanne Simpson declared in the interests of transparency that she was married to Councillor Jack Hopkins, who would be speaking in objection to the application as a Ward Councillor, but this would not influence her decision-making.


The Chair announced a provisional timetable for the meeting in accordance with Standing Order 9.9.1.
