Every councillor has to complete a Register of Members’ Interest form. These are stored for inspection online at http://www.southend.gov.uk/downloads/download/794/the_register_of_members_interests.
These forms are completed so as to counter any allegations of bias in our proceedings. (Interests are also separately notified at each meeting for individual agenda items).
I have a particular interest in rental properties – Milton has the highest rental sector of any ward in the borough of Southend-on-Sea.
Anyway, in discussions about landlords, development, HMOs, etc., it is pertinent how the following question is answered: Any land in your authority’s area in which you have a beneficial interest.
The following councillors are multi-property owners:
Mary Betson (spouse)
Georgina Phillips (spouse)
Ian Robertson (spouse)
