Declarations of Interest
Registers of Interest are maintained for the Commission, the Historic England Advisory Committee, the London Advisory Committee, and the Historic England Executive Team. They record any significant, ongoing interest a member may have and are reviewed by the Audit and Risk Assurance Committee twice yearly.
If a member has an interest on a specific case to be discussed at a meeting this should be declared at the start of the meeting and recorded in the minutes.
