We are required to publish the members interest forms for each parish and town council within the borough. This does not apply to parish meetings and Loughborough does not have a parish council or a parish meeting.

Information on the register includes financial interests (e.g. a councillor's employment or business) and other interests such as membership of lobby groups. You can access the interest forms, by selecting the relevant parish or town council from the box above.
