In order that Parish Councils may be seen to be transparent in their decisions Parish Councillors are required to register their pecuniary interests with the District Council and to declare these interests at Parish Council meetings when subjects which may have some bearing on those interests are discussed.  Waveney District Council maintains an online register of the declared interests of Parish Councillors which may be viewed here.
