View the political structure of the Council.
Councillors are elected every four years and are democratically accountable to the residents of their Ward. The overriding duty of Councillors is to the whole community, but they have a special duty to all their constituents.
You can contact your Councillors to help you if you have a local issue that you want to bring to their attention or are dissatisfied with a council service. Many Councillors also run local advice surgeries to hear residents' concerns.
All Councillors meet together as the Council. Here Councillors decide the Council’s overall policies and set the budget each year. The Council also appoints the Leader and the Members of the Cabinet, sets up and makes appointments to Overview and Scrutiny and other Committees, and confirms the appointment of the Chief Executive.
