How the Council Operates
Local councillors (sometimes called members) are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its work and spend money on local services.
Prestbury is a democratic unit with an active Parish Council that has twelve elected members who assemble for twelve Full Council meetings each year.
Councillors have a responsibility for the whole community but they have a special responsibility to represent their ward constituents. Prestbury contains three wards, with five Parish Councillors representing the Ward of Prestbury, six Parish Councillors representing the Ward of Butley, and one Parish Councillor representing the Ward of Fallibroome.
All Councillors attend Council Meetings and each Councillor will also be a member of a number of Committees and Working Groups reporting back to the Council.
Councils work in partnership with local communities and organisations – including the public, voluntary, community and private sectors – to develop a vision for their local area, working collaboratively to improve services and quality of life for citizens.
