Personal wellbeing

You may also have a pecuniary interest where you attend a committee meeting of the council where the business concerns your personal wellbeing or financial position or that of your husband, wife, partner to a greater extent than the majority of residents in your Ward affected by the decision. Please note that you will only know this when you attend a committee meeting or full council and an item on the agenda affects your wellbeing or that of your husband, wife, partner to the extent described above. You must then declare a pecuniary interest at the beginning of the meeting or before the relevant agenda item is discussed and not take part in the meeting when that agenda item is discussed.

OTHER INTERESTS

8. a) Any decision in relation to the item at a meeting might reasonably be regarded as affecting the well-being or financial standing of you or a member of your family or a person with whom you have a close association to a greater extent than it would affect the majority of the Council Tax payers, ratepayers or inhabitants of the ward or electoral area for which you have been elected or otherwise of the authority’s administrative area. b) A close family member is a spouse, civil partner or any person living with the member as a spouse or civil partner, or a Member’s brother or sister, son or daughter or a parent.

These details must include the name of the donor, his or her main business (if appropriate), the nature of the gift or hospitality and its estimated value.

Declaration

I recognise that I will be in breach of the Council’s Code of Conduct for Members if I: (a) Omit information that ought to be given in this notice (b) Provide information that is materially false or misleading (c) Fail to give further notice within 28 days of any change to the information set out above in order to bring up to date the information given in this notice.

9. Dispensations
Dispensations Granted
Cllr Zinkin has been appointed by LondonEnergy Ltd (LEL)to act as a director of that company, and will receive [£13,285] per annum as compensation for their time given to undertaking this role. This amount is consistent with allowances for Councillors for similar roles with a similar time and responsibility commitment. This payment is a disclosable pecuniary interest under the Member Code of Conduct. LEL is wholly owned by North London Waste Authority (NLWA), the statutory waste disposal authority of which this Council is a constituent borough. Cllr Zinkin has been appointed to the North London Waste Authority (NLWA) by this Council, and in that capacity has been nominated by NLWA for appointment by LEL to their Board. LEL has the role of disposing of North London’s waste, and carries this out through a contract with [NLWA] North LNWA. It is in the interests of the residents of North London, and specifically of this borough, that the role is carried out effectively, and that the governance arrangements put in place facilitate the company in carrying out its disposal of waste arising in the area. The appointment as Director of LEL creates an extremely positive link and connection from the constituent Boroughs to the NLWA and then to LEL who ultimately dispose of the waste for the residents of this Borough. The creation and maintenance of this link is in the public interest as it will ultimately facilitate a better service for the Borough. This is particularly the case during the next few years as the NLWA is responsible for the development of major new infrastructure through the North London Heat and Power Project, with LEL as the intended operator of new facilities. In order to allow Cllr Zinkin to participate in discussion and to take decisions relating to LEL (whether in meetings of NLWA or of this Council) I have therefore given dispensation to Cllr Zinkin so that he can participate in such discussions and votes. This dispensation is effective until 10th May 2022 unless withdrawn previously by me. Jessica Farmer, Monitoring Officer, 22nd January 2021
