Returns Register

The Local Government Act 1995 requires Councillors 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.

Councillors and employees with delegated authority must disclose certain personal information when they commence at the Shire and every subsequent year while either elected, or employed at the Shire. These disclosures are called primary returns and annual returns.

A primary return is a snapshot of personal financial information as it exists upon the commencement date of a Councillors 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 Councillors and employees (by position) who lodged a primary return and annual return for each financial year, commencing after 1 July 2020.
