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. Twenty-one of the current 23 Members were elected or re-elected May 2019 and will represent their wards until Spring 2023. Two Councillors were elected in 2020 to Casual Vacancies on the Parish Council following the resignation of Members.
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 supported by a Deputy Clerk who is also the Council’s Responsible Financial Officer. In addition, the Council has appointed a Climate Emergency Co-ordinator to manage the work of the Climate Emergency Standing Committee and its sub-groups.
