Councillors’ interests, gifts and hospitality

Find out about councillors’ interests and what they get in the form of gifts and hospitality

Councillors’ interests

Councillors must declare certain interests when they become a councillor. These include:

  • the name of their employer and their occupation
  • details of any land or house they occupy within the city
  • interests in companies and securities which operate in the city
  • other financial interests

Find your councillor to see councillor interests.

You can also view the formal Register of Interests for all councillors at Brunel House, St George's Road, Bristol BS1 5UY between 9am and 5pm.

Councillors must also declare if they have an interest in any of the matters being discussed. This can be done when they complete their general declaration form, at meetings of the council and at Cabinet meetings or committees where they’re a member.

If you’d like to inspect a register, have questions about the registers or for any other related information, call our Democratic Services team on 0117 922 2908 or email democratic.services@bristol.gov.uk.
