We have 60 elected councillors. There are currently 46 Labour, 9 Conservative, 2 Middleton Independents and 3 Liberal Democrats. The Labour Group has control of the council. The Leader of the Council is Councillor Neil Emmott.
Following the election on Thursday, 4 May 2023, the profile page of each councillor is yet to be updated.
Councillors are elected by residents and are responsible for agreeing provision of services and how the council's money is spent. They represent the views and opinions of individuals and help those with difficulties that the council can help solve.
You can contact councillors through their regular ward surgeries, email, telephone and different types of social media. Find all councillor information on their individual profile page.
The leader of the council writes about what's happening at the council and how we're working hard to make the borough better for everyone.
