Gift and Travel Register

On 20 October 2019, the new gifts framework contained within the Local Government Legislation Amendment Act 2019, came into operation.

In accordance with sections 5.87A and 5.87B of the Act, council members and CEO's are required to disclose gifts that are received in their capacity as a council member or CEO and:

  • are valued over $300; or
  • are of a cumulative value that exceeds $300 where the gifts are received from the same donor within a 12 month period.

Contributions to travel costs, whether financially or not, will no longer be treated separately.

All gifts must be disclosed within 10 days and the CEO must publish an up-to-date register on the website.
