Your Local Councillor
Clackmannanshire Council has 18 Councillors elected by the local community.
Three political parties are represented on the Council:
- Scottish National Party - 8 Councillors
- Labour Party - 8 Councillors
- Conservative Party - 1 Councillor
- Independent - 1 Councillor
An important aspect of the member's role is to represent the interests of the local community and of individual members of that community striking a balance between the two. Elected members are accountable to the public for the provision of quality services, for establishing the Council's policy framework and for decisions taken at Council and committee meetings.
Elected members consult and are consulted by their constituents on a wide range of issues. Where a member of the public raises an issue of concern or makes and enquiry through an elected member, the elected member may consider that it is appropriate to take the matter forward on their behalf.
Each Councillor represents an area within Clackmannanshire referred to as their Ward.
