You can find a copy of each councillor's register of interests using our Councillor search. The search will also help you to find contact details and committee memberships.
You can also view the code of conduct and register of interests at our Millmead offices during normal office hours.
The various codes of conduct adopted by our 23 parish councils are kept at their respective parish council offices. You can view them on request by contacting the relevant parish clerk. You can find the clerk's contact details on our Parish Council information pages.
