The role of a councillor

All County Councillors are expected to carry out duties serving all members of the community equally, fairly and without discrimination.

The main duties of a County Councillor is to represent the needs, priorities and aspirations of the electors for your area, as well as the whole of Monmouthshire, by making yourself known in the area you represent, being accessible and consulting/liaising with local communities, organisations and businesses. You will also need to regularly attend a number of meetings and make decisions on behalf of the electorate to help improve the lives of local people.

Councillor Role Description

The WLGA produced guidance at the 2012 local elections for people considering standing as a councillor as well as more detailed guidance for new councillors that were elected.
