Currently elected or co-opted candidates must disclose a variety of information around lobby groups, political parties and where they hold vested interests of a substantial amount in shares (£25,000).
It is currently not a requirement that this information be published, although a lot of councils do volunteer it.
I suggest we make the following information mandatory on the councils website:
Political Party (if not Indie)
Lobby Group (Union, etc)
Declaration of Interests: Shares etc
I think we should also lower the share "substantial" threshold to £5,000.
Address / telephone number should remain optional as they can be contacted through the council's clerk.
