We have 60 elected councillors. There are currently 48 Labour, 10 Conservative and 2 Liberal Democrat. The Leader of the Council is Councillor Richard Farnell as the Leader of the Labour Group.
Councillors are elected by residents and responsible for agreeing provision of services and how the council's money is spent. They represent views and opinions of individuals and help those with difficulties that the council can help solve.
You can contact councillors through their regular ward surgeries, email, telephone and different types of social media. Find all councillor information on their individual profile page.
