Declarations of Pecuniary Interests

When a Councillor is first elected, co-opted, or appointed a member to a Parish Council they must, within 28 days of becoming a member, tell the monitoring officer who is responsible for your council’s or authority’s register of members’ interests about your disclosable pecuniary interests.

A person’s pecuniary interests are their business interests (for example their employment, trade, profession, contracts, or any company with which they are associated) and wider financial interests they might have (for example trust funds, investments, and assets including land and property).


As an election was recently held in Harrietsham (4th May 2023), the Parish Clerk is awaiting the return of some of the redacted Pecuniary Interest forms from the Monitoring officer at Maidstone Borough Council.  These will be uploaded in due course.
