There are 23 councillors who serve for a four-year term and meet every 6-8 weeks as a full Council to discuss issues concerning the area. Most of the current Members were elected, re-elected or co-opted in May/June 2015 so will represent their wards until Spring 2019. Councillors are all unpaid and committed to working for the benefit of the community; they welcome residents and businesses contacting them regarding any local issues.
The Council employs a Clerk who co-ordinates the meetings and oversees the effective running of the Council. The Clerk is also the Council’s Responsible Financial Officer.
