Personal Interest Returns

The Local Government Act 2020 requires Councillors and Nominated Officers to complete Personal Interest Returns. 

 A Personal Interest Return must be completed within 30 days of the commencement in their role, and then biannually in March and September of each subsequent year. 

The Victorian Government imposes penalties for false and incomplete information provided in any Personal Interest Return, and for failing to lodge the Personal Interest Return within the legislated timeframes. 

Council is required to provide public access to a summary of the Personal Interest Returns which have been lodged. 

The summaries of Initial Personal Returns are available below:
