The Register of Members' Interest

According to the Members Code of Conduct in the Council Constitution it's a requirement for Councillors to register their interests "within 28 days of the provisons of an authority's code of conduct being adopted or applied to that authority or within 28 days of his or her election or appointment to office (if that is later)". By our calculations that means the deadline was the beginning of last week.

Unfortunately we've no way of knowing whether all Councillors have met the requirements. This is because - at the time of writing at least - each Councillor's individual web page simply says "Member's interests forms will be posted as soon as possible". Surely if Councillors had to have the forms in nearly two weeks ago the information should be on the website by now? We're waiting to see whether Cllr Cornforth lists an interest in Tilfen Land.

Most of us completed and deposited the declarations of Members' interests on the morning of 6th May.

However, if it helps, I can assure you that I have no interest in Tilfen Land.
