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 public through council meetings,email, 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. Some councillors use social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter.
Councillors do not get paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. By law, all members of the Council must complete a declaration of interest form, the details of which we publish under each councillor's personal page.
