There are 40 elected members of the council representing the borough, who are responsible for agreeing policies about the provision of services and how the council’s money is spent.
The officers employed by the council are responsible for the day-to-day management and running of the council’s functions.
Councillors are democratically elected every four years to represent the 16 wards that make up the borough. A ward is an area set up for administrative and political purposes containing a set amount of the electorate. Depending on size, wards are represented by two or three councillors.
