Further Explanation

(Local Government Act and Code of Conduct)

 

A conflict of interest exists where a reasonable and informed person would perceive that a Council official could be influenced by a private interest when carrying out their public duty. Interests can be of two types: pecuniary or non-pecuniary.

 

All interests, whether pecuniary or non-pecuniary are required to be fully disclosed and in writing.

 

Pecuniary Interest

 

A pecuniary interest is an interest that a Council official has in a matter because of a reasonable likelihood or expectation of appreciable financial gain or loss to the Council official. (section 442)

 

A Council official will also be taken to have a pecuniary interest in a matter if that Council official’s spouse or de facto partner or a relative of the Council official or a partner or employer of the Council official, or a company or other body of which the Council official, or a nominee, partner or employer of the Council official is a member, has a pecuniary interest in the matter. (section 443)

 

The Council official must not take part in the consideration or voting on the matter and leave and be out of sight of the meeting. (section 451)

 

Non-Pecuniary

 

A non-pecuniary interest is an interest that is private or personal that the Council official has that does not amount to a pecuniary interest as defined in the Act.

 

Non-pecuniary interests commonly arise out of family, or personal relationships, or involvement in sporting, social or other cultural groups and associations and may include an interest of a financial nature.

 

The political views of a Councillor do not constitute a private interest.

 

The management of a non-pecuniary interest will depend on whether or not it is significant.

 

Non Pecuniary – Significant Interest

 

As a general rule, a non-pecuniary conflict of interest will be significant where a matter does not raise a pecuniary interest, but it involves:

(a)   A relationship between a Council official and another person that is particularly close, for example, parent, grandparent, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, lineal descendant or adopted child of the Council official or of the Council official’s spouse, current or former spouse or partner, de facto or other person living in the same household.

(b)   Other relationships that are particularly close, such as friendships and business relationships. Closeness is defined by the nature of the friendship or business relationship, the frequency of contact and the duration of the friendship or relationship.

(c)   An affiliation between a Council official an organisation, sporting body, club, corporation or association that is particularly strong.

 

If a Council official declares a non-pecuniary significant interest it must be managed in one of two ways:

1.     Remove the source of the conflict, by relinquishing or divesting the interest that creates the conflict, or reallocating the conflicting duties to another Council official.

2.     Have no involvement in the matter, by taking no part in the consideration or voting on the matter and leave and be out of sight of the meeting, as if the provisions in section 451(2) apply.

 

Non Pecuniary – Less than Significant Interest

 

If a Council official has declared a non-pecuniary less than significant interest and it does not require further action, they must provide an explanation of why they consider that the conflict does not require further action in the circumstances.

i.   Section 443 (1) of the Local Government Act 1993 provides that you may have a pecuniary interest in a matter because of the pecuniary interest of your spouse or your de facto partner or your relativeiv or because your business partner or employer has a pecuniary interest. You may also have a pecuniary interest in a matter because you, your nominee, your business partner or your employer is a member of a company or other body that has a pecuniary interest in the matter.

A person does not have a pecuniary interest in a matter if the interest is so remote or insignificant that it could not reasonably be regarded as likely to influence any decision the person might make in relation to the matter or if the interest is of a kind specified in section 448 of that Act (for example, an interest as an elector or as a ratepayer or person liable to pay a charge).

iii.   A pecuniary interest may arise by way of a change of permissible use of land adjoining, adjacent to or in proximity to land in which a councillor or a person, company or body referred to in section 443 (1) (b) or (c) of the Local Government Act 1993 has a proprietary interest—see section 448 (g) (ii) of the Local Government Act 1993.

AGENDA  Description: Governance Strap.jpgHastings Local Emergency Management Committee      14/11/2013

 

 

Item:          07

 

Subject:     Port Macquarie-Hastings Flood Emergency Sub Plan

Presented by:  Infrastructure & Asset Management, Jeffery Sharp

 

 

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the Committee review Volume 1 of the Draft Flood Emergency Sub Plan

 

 

Discussion

 

The New South Wales State Emergency Service Mid North Coast Region has commenced work on updating the Port Macquarie-Hastings Flood Emergency Sub plan. This work is part of the NSW SES obligations as the lead Combat Agency for Floods in NSW as per the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act. The Flood Emergency Sub Plan is a supporting plan to the Local Disaster Plan and reflects the NSW SES plans for flood response operations in the Port Macquarie Hastings Local Government Area.

 

The update of the Port Macquarie-Hastings Flood Plan will involve combining the previous Camden Haven and Port Macquarie Flood Emergency Plans to cover the whole local government area. It will be divided into three volumes;-

 

The first volume will reflect the localised commitments and obligations of other Combat Agencies and Functional Support Areas already articulated in the New South Wales Emergency Management Plan. This volume will need to be completed in consultation with local representatives of Combat Agencies and Functional Support Areas, so that a thorough understanding and commitment to the proposed support arrangements are obtained. Once agreement is reached on the arrangements, volume 1 will be tabled for formal endorsement by the LEMC.

 

The second volume will record and articulate the hazard and risks the plan is designed to manage. This volume will contain all the contemporary data on the flood and coastal erosion threat and subsequent effects on the community both in the built and natural environment. Once completed this volume will be tabled with the LEMC but will not require formal endorsement.

 

The third volume will outline the NSW SES response arrangements regarding flood warnings, at risk locality operational response arrangements and dam failure arrangements. Once completed this volume will be tabled at the LEMC but will not require formal endorsement.

AGENDA  Description: Governance Strap.jpgHastings Local Emergency Management Committee      14/11/2013

 

 

Item:          08

 

Subject:     North Shore Sirens

Presented by:  Infrastructure & Asset Management, Jeffery Sharp

 

 

 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the Local Emergency Management Committee consider the installation, ownership and maintenance of emergency sirens at North Shore.

 

 

Discussion

 

The installation of emergency sirens on North Shore, similar to the system currently used on Lord Howe Island, has been proposed as a method of alerting the community of impending emergencies.

 

Should the LEMC support the proposal, protocols would need to be developed as to who is responsible for the sirens, when and how they would be used and who would own and maintain them.

 

The chair is aware that there is an opportunity to seek funding from the NSW Government should the Committee be supportive.
