Your Councillors by Party

The 84 County Councillors were elected following the County Council Elections on Thursday 4 May 2017. As no one party won overall control, the current administration is run by a Labour and Liberal Democrat alliance. The councillors represent public interest as well as individuals living within the division 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, telephone calls or surgeries. Surgeries provide an opportunity for any ward resident to go and talk their councillor face to face and these take place on a regular basis.

Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. By law, all members of the Council are required to complete a declaration of interest form, the details of which are published annually.
