Aboriginal language audio resources

These resources for local government elected members and local authority members have been recorded in 18 Aboriginal languages to improve access to information and training.

Please note, the Local Government Act 2008 has been replaced by the Local Government Act 2019.

Conflict of interest

Conflicts of interest are important for all council members, local authority members, audit committee members and council committee members to understand when making decisions and recommendations. Under the Local Government Act 2019, it is a requirement for members to disclose if they have a conflict of interest and not participate in discussions or decisions if they have a conflict. The information sheet below outlines what a conflict of interest means, what to do if a member has a conflict of interest and some examples of possible conflicts.
