Meet The Council
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 are 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
