How decisions are made

How decisions are made

Decisions about the way we run our services are taken by the 75 councillors that you elect every 4 years. The next election is on Thursday 6 May 2021. These decisions are implemented by council staff.

The 75 councillors come from different political parties, and some have different roles in the decision making process. Some are part of the Cabinet, while others sit on committees.
