Councillors by Ward

Local Councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities. They represent public interest as well as individuals living within the ward in which he or she has been elected to serve a term of office.

They have regular contact with the general public through council meetings, telephone calls or surgeries. Surgeries provide an opportunity for any ward resident to go and talk their councillor face to face and these take place on a regular basis.

Councillors receive allowances for their work, the details of which are published annually.

All Councillors are required by law, and under the Council's Code of Conduct, to complete a declaration of interest form to register any financial or other interests that could potentially conflict with their role as a local Councillor. The Members own declaration of interest form can be found on their individual web page.
