Councillors are responsible for making decisions on behalf of the community about local services, like rubbish collection and leisure facilities, and agreeing budgets and Council Tax charges.

If you want to discuss any issues with your local councillor, you can contact them via your local authority or attend the councillor’s advice surgery. Advice surgeries are available for local people to ask for help or advice, make a complaint or enquire about local authority services.
