Meet the councillors

A councillor's normal term of office is four years. The next election will be held in May 2021.  Any person aged over 18 years who is a citizen of the UK, the EU or the Commonwealth can be a councillor if they are an elector in, work in, live in or live within three miles of the area of the local council, unless they are disqualified. 


A councillor is the holder of public office, not a volunteer.


A councillor's main responsibilities are to:

  • raise matters that the council can consider and formally decide to take action about at meetings
  • attend council meetings
  • make informed contributions which influence the debate on the business that needs to be decided at those meetings
  • participate in the council's decision making process, which in itself is subject to strict rules
  • represent his council externally


To contact a Councillor:
