Councillors have regular contact with the public through either committee meetings, telephone calls or surgeries. Councillor surgeries provide an opportunity for you to talk to your councillor face to face.
Councillors decide which policies we should take forward and ensure that they are carried out. These decisions are made at Committee meetings. They also monitor services to make sure that they are delivered well and offer value for money to taxpayers.
A local councillor covers a ward area and is there to represent the views of local people. They also assist people in need or help people to access public services. Councillors also help with local campaigns and work in the best interests of the city and their local neighbourhood.
Councillors are not paid but receive an allowance to help them in their work. Details of all allowances paid can be found on the councillor allowances page.
