Lower Kingswood Reigate & Banstead Councillors

The role of a Councillor

A councillor’s primary role is to represent the people in their Ward. They are a bridge between the community and the Council, acting as an advocate for residents and signposting them to the right people at the Council. In order to understand and represent local views and priorities a Councillor should build strong relationships with their community, stimulate local involvement with the Council, and encourage residents to make their opinions known. They should work within the Council to help develop and scrutinise policies and ensure the community they serve is kept informed about the issues, activities and initiatives that affect them.
