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.
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 onto the indiviudal Members below.
