Councillors - General Information
The district of West Somerset is represented by 28 elected councillors (also called "members"). Councillors are elected every four years to represent all the residents of West Somerset and make decisions about the work and spending of the Council. The district is divided into 16 electoral wards (the term given to electoral areas). Some areas have more than one councillor.
You can search for your ward and find out who your Councillor is by postcode on the website www.writetothem.com
Or if you already know your ward or Councillor, you can use Find a Councillor to find out more information and contact your Councillor using the Contact your Councillor online form.
A full list of Committees and a Council Meetings Calendar are also available. Agendas, Reports and Minutes of meetings are available by using the meetings calendar.
The Local Government Association have produced a Councillor's Guide for newly elected councillors. This guide would also be useful if you are thinking about becoming a councillor, or would simply like to know more about what being a councillor involves.
