There are a number of organisations which are independent from the council, but have an impact on its service areas.
In order that the council can maintain effective partnerships with a number of these organisations, representatives of the council, usually elected councillors, sit on the various committees and forums that are responsible for them.
Below is a list of some of the outside bodies that councillors represent. To find the contact details for the council’s representative on a particular outside body please follow the relevant link below. A full list of outside bodies and the relative appointments is available here
