Local Councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities. They represent public interest as well as individuals living within the ward in which he or she has been elected to serve a term of office.
They have regular contact with the general public through council meetings, telephone calls or surgeries. Surgeries provide an opportunity for any ward resident to go and talk their councillor face to face and these take place on a regular basis.
Councillors represent residents as part of their work in the community, contacting officers of the Council and other organisations on your behalf to respond to your enquiries. In order for elected Councillors to carry out your request for assistance or respond to your enquiry, it is necessary to collect, store and process your personal data. This privacy notice tells you what information Medway Council councillors collect and use, and your rights regarding your information.
Councillors are not paid a salary for their work, but they do receive allowances. By law, all members of the Council are required to complete a declaration of interest form, the details of which are published annually.
You can find out who your local Councillor is by entering your postcode into the find my councillor page.
