Register of Gifts

On 20 October 2019 a new gift regime began for local government CEOs and council members.

The new framework requires council members and CEOs to declare any gift over $300 that is received in their official capacity as a council member or CEO.

Contributions to travel costs, whether financial or otherwise, will no longer be treated separately. These are now incorporated within the definition of gift.

The City’s current gift register contains disclosures made by Council Members and the CEO in accordance with the new gift framework.

Primary and Annual Returns Reporting - Period 2020 - 2021

The Local Government Act 1995 requires Council Members and employees to make decisions in the best interests of the community and decision-making must be transparent, accountable and free from bias or conflicts of interest. In view of this, elected members and employees (with delegated authority) must disclose certain personal information when they commence and every subsequent year while either elected, or employed at the City. These disclosures are called “primary returns” and “annual returns”.

A primary return is a snapshot of personal financial information as it exists upon the start date of an elected member or an employee.

An annual return retrospectively discloses any changes to the information previously disclosed, or any new interest information to disclose since completing their last return.

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995 and the Local Government (Administration) Regulations 1996 local governments are required to publish a list of elected members and employees (by position) that lodged a primary return and annual return for each financial year, commencing after 1 July 2020.
