Your 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 and some Councillors may hold surgeries. Surgeries provide an opportunity for any ward resident to go and talk to their Councillor face to face. Contact your Councillor for further details. If you are interested in becoming a Councillor there is more information on the Local Government Association website
Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. In accordance with the Localism Act 2011, all Members have completed a Register of Members’ Interest form which sets out their pecuniary and other interests in accordance with the Council’s Code of Conduct. The forms can be viewed, or copies obtained, by telephoning 01242 264246 or 01684 272011 or by emailing Democratic Services.
The current political makeup of the Council is 29 Liberal Democrats, 6 Conservatives, 2 People Against Bureaucracy and three non-aligned. The Liberal Democrat group therefore has an overall majority of 20 on the Borough Council.
