Your Councillors

Introduction

The Council is made up of 51 elected councillors or 'members' who decide its aims, objectives and policies. They are elected to represent a particular area or ward in Calderdale. Each ward has three councillors who serve for four years. Elections take place in each ward three years out of every four, when one council seat in each ward is open for election.

Councillors are not paid a salary, but receive an allowance for time spent on official council business. Calderdale's constitution provides further information on Councillors Allowances and the Councillors Code of Conduct.
