Hereford City is divided into 16 ward areas, with a ward Councillor representing each area, with two wards having two Councillors, giving a total of 18. These City Councillors are elected by you, the public, and candidates can put themselves forward regardless of their background. As a Parish Council, these Councillors come together to discuss City matters and review City Council activities.
A City Councillor’s primary role is to represent their ward or division and the people who live in it. Councillors provide a bridge between the community and the council. City Councillors are voluntary roles and are not paid, so their interests in becoming a Councillor are based purely on their desire to better their City.
As the local elected representative for their Ward, City Councillors engage with residents and groups on a wide range of different issues and take on an important community leadership role. At the City Council, Councillors contribute to the development of policies and strategies, including budget setting, and they can be involved in scrutinising council decisions, creating new community projects, voicing concerns or taking decisions on planning and licensing applications, and much more.
