To consider resolving that the Council delegates the power to grant dispensations to the Clerk. The power rests with the relevant authority under section 33(1) of the Localism Act 2011 and the basis is set out under section 33(2).


“The parish clerk or the parish council may grant a dispensation to a councillor who has a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest to participate in any discussion of a matter at a meeting and/or to participate in any vote on the matter if they consider that:


a)     so many members of the decision-making body have disclosable pecuniary interests that it would impede the transaction of the business (ie. the meeting would be inquorate); or

b)     the authority considers that the dispensation is in the interests of persons living in the authority’s area; or

c)     it is otherwise appropriate to grant a dispensation.


The parish council may wish to extend the provisions of the above paragraph to apply in the same way in the case of a “non-disclosable pecuniary interest” or a “non-pecuniary interest”, as defined in the Code of Conduct, but this is at the discretion of the council. Dispensations may be granted for

a)     One meeting or

b)     For a period not exceeding 4 years

Clerk to report any written requests for disclosable pecuniary interests’ dispensations.
