We are a democratic organisation with 74 elected councillors who are responsible for agreeing policies about provision of services and how money is spent.

Councillors are here to represent the views and opinions of individuals. It is also their responsibility to help those with difficulties which the council could help solve.

Your councillor will discuss any concerns or problems relating to council services and listen to your views on issues that you feel are important.
