Gift and Travel Register

As of 20 October 2019, the Local Government Act 1995, s5.87A and s5.87B  requires gifts (including contributions to travel) received by Elected Members and CEO’s, valued at (or cumulative value within 12 months) over $300 and received in their capacity as Elected Members or CEO, to be disclosed and included on a publicly available register. 

The CEO is required to keep a register of these disclosures and publish on the Shire's website.

Under the Shire of Chittering's Code of Conduct, all employees are required to disclose the receipt of a gift to the CEO within 10 days.  Gifts received by relevant employees over the value of $200 are required to be included on a publicly available register.  A relevant employee is defined under section 5.74 of the Act as:

  • a person with delegated powers and duties under Part 5, Division 4 of the Act; 
  • an employee who is a member of a committee comprising council  members and employees; and 
  • an employee nominated by the local government to be a designated employee.

If you have any questions about the Register please contact the Shire's Executive Assistant on 9576 4600.
