Your Councillors by Party

The Council consists of 50 Councillors (Members) representing 20 Wards. However, due to a vacancy it currently consists of 49 Councillors (22 Conservative Group Members, 18 Labour Group Members, 3 Liberal Democrat Group Members, 3 Independent Group Members, 2 Green Group Members and 1 Independent).

Councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities. They are democratically accountable to the whole community, but they have a special duty to their constituents, including those that did not vote for them. They receive an allowance for their work.

All Councillors are required to abide by a Code of Conduct for Members and Co-opted Members to ensure high standards of probity in the discharge of their responsibilities. Any person may make a written complaint to the Council’s Monitoring Officer in relation to a breach of the Code.
