The Local Government Act 2020 requires councils to adopt a Councillor Gift Policy.
At its meeting held on 29 March 2021, Council adopted the Councillor Gift Policy. The purpose of the policy is to provide guidance to councillors relating to the acceptance or otherwise of a gift or other benefits such as hospitality, favours, entertainment and services offered to a councillor.
The policy establishes a framework and a clear understanding for the acceptance and declaration of gifts, benefits and hospitality by councillors to ensure the highest standard of integrity, transparency and accountability is maintained at all times.
