Councillors – the basics

  • We have 51 councillors who represent the city's 17 electoral wards. 
  • There are three councillors for each electoral ward.
  • Elections are held three out of every four years: one councillor from each ward goes through an election process over the three years.
  • Councillors are elected to represent residents of their electoral ward, but also have a duty to represent the whole city. 

Following the Local Council Elections 2016 , Labour has the majority of seats - find out the breakdown of votes.

  • Labour: 26 seats
  • Conservative: 17 seats
  • Liberal Democrats: 5 seats
  • UKIP: 3 seats

All councillors have to follow a Code of Conduct that they must sign. This makes them accountable to the Standards Committee, which investigates breaches of the Code.
