You can talk to your councillor about a wide range of issues that affect you or your community.
What can a councillor help with?
Councillors are fair and impartial advocates for you.
You can raise any kind of issue with them, but some examples include:
- You have had an interaction with the council and you aren't happy with the outcome e.g you reported a problem about fly tipping and it wasn't resolved to your satisfaction.
- You have an issue in your neighbourhood e.g. anti social behaviour.
- You have a personal problem e.g. issues with a benefit, or you are concerned your child isn't being taught properly.
