How the Council Operates

Local councillors (sometimes called members) are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its work and spend money on local services.

Councillors have a responsibility for the whole community but they have a special responsibility to represent their ward constituents. Bollington has three wards with four councillors serving each ward, usually for a period of four years. All Councillors attend Council Meetings and each Councillor will also be a member of a number of Committees and Working Groups reporting back to the Council.

Bollington Town Council has a Town Mayor, elected annually, who is a Town Councillor and who chairs meetings of the Council during their Mayoral Year

Councils work in partnership with local communities and organisations – including the public, voluntary, community and private sectors – to develop a vision for their local area, working collaboratively to improve services and quality of life for citizens.
