Town Councillors

Prudhoe Town Councillors

Prudhoe Town Council has provision for 15 Councillors, each representing a different ward of the town.

The ward for each street in Prudhoe & Mickley is detailed in the Streets and Wards document.

Our ‘Promoting Democracy’ Booklet gives further information about the wards of the town, the election process, and the role of a Town Councillor.

Further legal references and statutory information relating to the position of Councillor, is available HERE.

The work of a Town Councillor can vary from one Councillor to another.  The three main areas of work are summarised below:

  1. Decision making – Through attending meetings and committees with other elected members, Councillors decide which activities to support, where money should be spent and what services should be delivered.  Decision-making is collective and by voting.
  1. Monitoring – Councillors make sure that their decisions lead to efficient and effective services by keeping an eye on how well things are working.
  1. Getting involved locally – As representatives of the community, Councillors may be part of local groups and organisations and may represent individuals and take up issues on their behalf.
  • A Town Councillor must represent the whole electorate not just those that voted for them.
  • A Town Councillor must represent the views of the community.
  • A Town Councillor has a duty to attend Council meetings.
  • A Town Councillor has a duty to ensure the Council is ‘properly’ managed.
  • A Town Councillor may represent a political party or may be independent.
  • A Town Councillor must maintain proper standards of behaviour as an elected representative.
  • A Town Councillor must abide by the adopted Code of Conduct and the Seven Principles of Public Life.
  • A Town Councillor must never use their position to secure personal advantage for themselves, family, or friends.
  • A Town Councillor must sign a declaration of acceptance of office and declare their interests.
  • A Town Councillor must not do anything that brings the Council into disrepute.
  • A Town Councillor is a volunteer and receives no financial reward.
  • A Town Councillor is accountable to local people.
