Council Business Explained

Council Business Explained

I've been an elected Labour councillor for Torfaen County Borough Council since 2012 now, and I've also served as Mayor of the borough and a term as a community councillor on Cwmbran Community Council. The aim of this series is to bust some of the myths surrounding how councils operate, and demystify some of the committee work and suchlike done by councillors.


ELECTIONS


LIFE AS A COUNCILLOR

The most visible aspects of a councillor's work are the monthly full council meetings. Torfaen's are webcast, along with all other main committee meetings, and you can read my overviews of various full council meetings HERE.

In addition to full council, you will sit on a range of committees - both statutory and scrutiny. Read more about them by clicking the links below:

CIVIC LIFE

I've written a separate series on civic life, explaining who's who in the civic hierarchy and what they do.
