Your Councillors by Party

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.

Councillors stand for election for a political party. Once they are elected, for the purposes of Council business, they may join political groups within the Council. Political party and political group are distinct from each other. Councillors may stand for one political party and join a different political group. Once Councillors are elected the Council has no requirement to know if they change political party. Therefore the political party shown below the name and ward of each Councillor is the party they stood for at the time of their election. Selecting the option to sort by political group shows the political group they currently belong to.

They have regular contact with the general public through council meetings, telephone calls or surgeries.

Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. By law, all members of the Council are required to complete a declaration of interest form, the details can found by clicking into the indiviudal members below.
