Democracy - Your Councillors

Your Councillors

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 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 of which are published annually.

Any ceremonial honour given to Members; and iv. Setting council tax or a precept under the Local Government Finance Act 1992.
