Register Of Members’ Interests

All councillors have to complete a register of interests within 28 days of an election, which is available for anyone to see. The register of interests gives details of any interests that might give rise to a conflict of interest in a councillor’s duties as a town or parish councillor.

East Suffolk Council has to publish the register of interests for all town and parish councils within the district (this does not apply to parish meetings), which you can view by following the link: East Suffolk  town and parish councils’  register of interests
