What is the role of a ward councillor?

Ward councillors represent the electors (voting residents) of a ward and sit on East Riding of Yorkshire Council. They can help you resolve local issues and can represent your views on the council. Ward councillors are also required to sign up to the Local Code of Conduct and, in doing so, pledge to observe the requirements contained within it.

What is a ward?

A ward is part of the overall area governed by a local authority (e.g. a council). Wards are usually named after neighbourhoods, parishes, landmarks, geographical features, and in some cases historical figures connected to an area.

You can see the ward that you live in using the Wards and Ward councillors map:
