How the Council Works

The Councillors' Handbook is intended to provide all Councillors, particularly those of you who are newly elected, with information and assistance which is likely to help you:

  • In discharging your duties as a Councillor
  • In finding your way around the various council offices locations for meetings etc; and
  • By providing important information by way of a general introduction to the work of the County Council.

The Handbook focuses on key aspects of the Council’s work but it cannot, of course, answer all the questions or provide all the information that Councillors will require. It will be supplemented by a comprehensive induction and member development programme including assistance with Information Technology (IT). Officers from all departments of the Council will be involved and this will take the form of presentations, focus groups, seminars, role play and other learning media.
