Councillors' Register of Interests goes online
VOTERS can now find out about the financial interests of their councillor without moving from their computer.
Plymouth City Council has put its councillors' Register of Interests online.
The register records councillors' financial and certain other interests.
Until now it was kept only in a paper copy format and people had to travel to the council offices to see it.
Cllr Peter Smith, deputy leader of the council, said: "We want to see more openness and transparency in all the council does and this is an important step towards that goal.
"The register should be available online so it's easier to access via our website rather than people having to travel to offices to see it."
Self-service: Find out about your ward councillor's financial interests at www.plymouth.gov.uk. Look for the link to "Councillors", then click on each councillor's name and follow the link to "Register of interests".
