Your Councillors

Your Councillors

Councillors are democratically accountable to residents of the city and their ward. The overriding duty of councillors is to the whole community, but they have a special duty to their constituents, including those who did not vote for them.

If you want to discuss any issues with your local councillor, you can -

  • attend your councillors’ advice surgeries
  • meet your councillors through area committees
  • contact your local councillor by email or telephone

Approximately a third of the council is elected every year (over a period of three years and there are no elections every fourth year). The next elections will take place on Thursday 6 May 2021.
