Register of Interests of Board Members and Executives*
This identifies business, professional or voluntary involvements of individuals in matters which overlap with LRC?s work, which individuals are consequently required to enter into a register. This is available for inspection, but as it includes maps showing any relevant ownership of land inspection at LRC?s office would be most practical.

Minutes of meetings prior to the Act becoming operational, on January 1, 2005, are available by written request, as set out in the Act.
