The Council currently consists of 50 Councillors (Members), representing 20 wards, and is a Labour led Council (28 Labour, 16 Conservative, 3 Liberal Democrat and 3 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.
