Councillor Responsibilities - Councillors are encouraged to have a number of additional responsibilities other than attending Full Town Council meetings.  They can choose to be on one of the 4 standing committees which specialise in different areas of Town Council business. 

Furthermore, there are a number of outside bodies that that ask for some form of Town Council representation and councillors are nominated to such bodies by the Council.  Where councillors are nominated to outside bodies (e.g. community groups) it is their responsibility to represent the interests of the Council (even if from time to time that might differ from their own individual view). 

Councillors can of course be in their own right as an individual citizen a member of any community group and on any of its committees.  However, when this is the case they are not representatives of the Council. 

The Town Council can and does co-opt non-councillors to some of its committees. 

A list of formal responsibilities on committees or outside bodies can be found below:
