The councillors' role centres around community leadership and engagement; responsibilities include:

  • representing the ward for which they are elected
  • decision-making - developing and reviewing council policy
  • and statutory duties

You'll find more information on the attached Vacancy Notice and application form.

Applications are invited by 7 June, in advance of meeting of Full Council on 21 June (to be confirmed).
