Conflict of interest
The Board of Directors of Leeds Community Homes have a Register of Interests – and all Board members have declared their current interests. Board members are asked to inform their fellow directors of any new potential conflicts of interest.
When necessary, Board members acknowledge a potential conflict of interest, and remove themselves from that particular Board discussion and decision. For example, Paul Belbin was not involved in the decision making process for appointing Gipsil as managing agents for Low Fold. Similarly, Gill Coupland and Rob Greenland were not involved in the decision making process to engage Social Business Brokers CIC to provide a co-ordinating role for Leeds Community Homes from May 2016.
Board members are encouraged to raise any potential conflicts of interest, if the person themselves has not previously acknowledged the potential conflict.
