There are 38 Councillors, each one is elected for a period of 4
years to represent the residents in part of the district known as a
Ward. At present, the Conservative group comprises 21
Members, the Group of Independent and Liberal Democrats comprises
11 Members, the Green group comprises 3 Members, 2
Independent Members who are not aligned to a political
group and 1 Councillor who is a member of the UK Independence
Party. A Councillor’s Political Group is not necessarily
the same as the political party they stood for at election.
Each elected Member serves on full council, which determines
strategic policy and approves certain matters "reserved" to
Council, such as setting the budget and council tax.
Councillors also serve on one of two Area Development Control
Committees, and may also serve on other committees, such as
Executive Committee or the Licensing and Appeals Committee.
An important part of the Councillor's role takes place away from
the council itself and in their ward, where they act as a point of
contact between the council and the public on a range of community
matters. Many Councillors also serve on outside
organisations, such as housing associations and school/college
governing bodies, providing a valuable link between the Council and
Parish and Town Councils
There are 54 Parish / Town Councils in the District. For more
