What do councillors do?
Councillors are the champions of their community and give residents a voice on the decisions the council makes. Becoming a councillor will allow you to make a real difference in your community by engaging with residents, local groups and businesses to find out their needs; making decisions on which services and projects the council should take forward; and getting involved locally to ensure the services are meeting your community’s needs.
Can I stand?
There are only a few rules to stand for election. You must be:
- A British citizen, or a citizen of the Commonwealth, or the European Union
