Disclosures of Interest

Council’s ‘designated persons’ (under 4.8 of Council’s Code of Conduct) must make disclosures about their pecuniary interests at least annually via a Disclosure of Interest Return. 

These returns are considered ‘open access information’ under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act) and must be made publicly available on Council’s website unless there is an overriding public interest against disclosure.

The Chief Executive Officer, as Council’s principal officer under the GIPA Act, has determined that there is an overriding public interest against disclosing the residential address of designated persons on the website.  This information has been redacted in the returns published below. Individuals may also request other personal information be withheld under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 (PPIP Act).  

Returns may still be inspected in full (except for information redacted under the PPIP Act) at Council’s Civic Centre, free of charge. Please make a request by emailing pecuniaryinterests@northernbeachescouncil.nsw.gov.au.
