Guidance for Members

Members are asked to contact Steve Lodge, Democratic Services Officer, 01295 221590, (mailto:steve.lodge@cherwell-dc.gov.uk) to tender apologies or advise of attendance by their named Deputy Members.

Members are reminded that Part II reports contain exempt information and should therefore be treated accordingly.  They should not be disclosed or passed on to any other person(s). 

Members are reminded of the requirements of Section 106 of the Local Government Finance Act, 1992, and those Members affected by its provisions will need to make a declaration and refrain from voting when a matter to which the Act applies is discussed.  An indication is given in the “Financial Effects” statements of those matters where the Act is likely to apply.

Members are asked to sign the Attendance Register.

Members are required to consider the implications of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the Human Rights Act 1998 when exercising their functions.

 

Declarations of Interests

Members are asked to declare any personal interest and the nature of that interest which they may have in any of the items under consideration at this meeting.

i)         any Member arriving after the start of the meeting is asked to declare interests as necessary as soon as practicable after their arrival even if the item in question has been considered;

ii)       with the exception of the circumstances listed in paragraph 10(2) of the model Code of Conduct for Members, a Member with a personal interest also has a prejudicial interest if it is one which a Member of the public with knowledge of the relevant facts would reasonably regard as so significant that it is likely to prejudice the Member’s judgement of the public interest.

iii)       Officers cannot offer advice during the meeting on whether or not a personal interest should be declared, or whether a personal interest should also be regarded as prejudicial.

Car Parking

Please also note that there is limited car parking at Bodicote House.  Please car share where possible.  Arrangements have been made to provide some overspill parking at the Bodicote Cricket Club, so please try there first.  The access is between the mini-roundabout and Bodicote House, opposite the primary school.  The Club has however instructed that under no circumstances should vehicles park on the grass verges on the drive leading up to the Clubhouse.
