Councillors

Minimize
Daventry District Council is composed of 36 Councillors, each of whom is chosen to represent a defined Ward by its electors.  Elections are by thirds, which means that one third of the seats are subject to re-election in each of three successive years, and County Council elections are held every fourth year. There are 16 electoral wards in the district. 

The political make-up of the Council (as of May 2016) is: 30 Conservative councillors, 3 Labour councillors, 2 UKIP councillors and 1 Liberal Democrat councillor.

Your local councillor is elected every 4 years to represent your area but Councillors can, of course, decide to submit themselves for re-election and continue to serve longer.  To find your ward, please refer to the Councillors Directory below.

The role of the elected Councillor

Elected Councillors oversee the functions of the authority through their membership of the Strategy Group, Scrutiny and Improvement Committee and Regulatory Committees, each of which has specific areas of responsibility. The full Council makes all policy and budgetary decisions.  Councillors vote on matters relating to the whole of the District as well as their own ward.  Daventry District Council has adopted a Code of Conduct, which sets out the rules that govern the behaviour of its members.

All elected and co-opted Members of the District Council are required to adhere to this Code of Conduct (Part 3 of the Constitution) and must complete a declaration of interest form to register their financial interests and other interests. These can be viewed on the individual Councillor's details in the directory. Any suspected breaches of the code can be referred to the Monitoring Officer.

The principal roles of an elected Councillor are:

  • To represent the interests of all residents in their ward
  • To offer advice and assistance on Council services
  • To decide Council policy, monitor performance and scrutinise decisions made.
