Political Donations and Gifts Disclosure Statements are required by statute. We collect information in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979.
All Political Donations and Gifts Disclosure Statements will be public documents and all information contained in them will be available to the public and government agencies.
In accordance with Section 328A of the Local Government Act 1993 members of the public may access all current donations and expenditure declarations lodged by councillors with the Electoral Funding Authority. Copies of the disclosures are published on the Electoral Funding website.

Information on disclosures made by political parties, groups and candidates who contest local government elections is available from the NSW Electoral Commission.
The NSW Government has introduced new disclosure requirements for members of the public relating to political donations and gifts. It is the responsibility of every person to ensure that they comply with any obligations under the new disclosure requirements.
Importantly, please not that a person will be guilty of an offence under Section 10.4 of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979 if the person fails to make a disclosure of a reportable political donation or gift. The penalties for the offence may be significant so it is critical that you ensure you understand and meet your disclosure obligations.
