Rules for councillors

A councillor has a responsibility to:

• Attend meetings when summoned to do so; the notice to attend a council meeting is, in law, a summons, because they have a duty to attend.

• Consider, in advance of the meeting, the agenda and any related documents which were sent with the summons.

• Take part in meetings and consider all the relevant facts and issues on matters which require a decision including the views of others expressed at the meeting.

• Take part in voting and respect decisions made by the majority of those present and voting.

• Ensure, with other councillors, that the council is properly managed.

• Represent the whole electorate, and not just those who voted for you.
