Local councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities. They represent public interest as well as individuals living within the ward in which he or she has been elected to serve a term of office.
They have regular contact with the general public through council meetings and telephone calls and some hold "surgeries". Surgeries are opportunities for any ward resident to go and talk their councillor face to face.
Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances, the details of which are published annually. By law, all members of the Council are required to complete a registration of interest form, which is published on the website.
