Your Councillors

Local Councillors (or Members) 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 they have been elected to.

You can contact your councillors through council engaging with committee meetings, emailing, telephoning or attending one of their regular surgeries.
